Motor Inductance Range for 6410 Stepper Drive

Every now and then the question comes up as the inductance range the 6410 requires for stepper motor operation.   The answer is none.  The 6410 is not limited to a range of inductances.

The 6410 stepper drive has a 4-Phase PWM chopping which electronically controls the motor winding currents at 20 kHz frequency.  The combination of recirculating and non-recirculating current regulation eliminates high back emf with low ripple, which means that the circuit is independent of motor inductance.

Hence you are not limited with your choice of stepper motors by a minimum or maximum inductance range.
