  • Review of recent progress in linear motors
    Experimental stepper motor drives for a floppy disk [21] and an artificial heart actuator [22] are further examples of possible applications.
  • CR4 - Thread: Small Motor Power Harvest
    I've never seen a DC motor in a hard drive - only variations of stepper motors . even most floppy drives used mostly steppers, although I do have at least one spin motor from a 3.5" floppy that is indeed a DC motor.
  • Head Actuator
    Stepper motors are still used to drive floppy disks, for example, because the accuracy demands for floppies are much lower: a 1.44 MB floppy disk has a track density of 135 tracks per inch.
  • CR4 - Thread: Stepper Motor Power Rating?
    I am surrounded by stepper motors cannibalized from everything from floppy drives to printers.
  • Practical transactional systems in the internet age [Book Review]

  • MavHome: an agent-based smart home
    Because components are connected using CORBA, off-the-shelf devices can be controlled by MavHome as easily as customized components such as our automated mini-blinds, built using stepper motors from 5 1/4” floppy drives .
  • Journal of the Brazilian Chemical Society - Analytical chemistry in Brazil: healthy and growing
    Aiming at routine analysis, a low cost auto-sampler for flow injection analysis was designed with two stepper motors obtained from discarded floppy disks drives .295 .
  • Experimenting with Raspberry Pi
    Stepper motor floppy-disk (see Floppy -disk stepper motor ) full-step drive mode, 128 half-step drive mode, 129 input levels, 125 power-on reset/boot, 126–127 software (see Software, stepper motor) wave drive mode, 128 .
  • CR4 - Thread: generating DC
    To the OP: small stepper motors are easily available from discarded floppy drives , printers, scanners, etc.
