Before you start wiring the steppers, there's a bit of soldering and assembly required.

Before wiring the steppers, make sure the Motor Hat is attached to the Pi Header and that the Pi and the Motor Hat are powered off.

With the Motor Hat and the Raspberry Pi unplugged, make the following connections between the DC/Stepper Motor Hat and Stepper Motor 1:

  • Stepper 1 Red to Hat M1+
  • Stepper 1 Yellow to Hat M1-
  • Stepper 1 Green to Hat M2+
  • Stepper 1 Gray to Hat M2-

Make the following connections between the DC/Stepper Motor Hat and Stepper Motor 2:

  • Stepper 2 Red to Hat M3+
  • Stepper 2 Yellow to Hat M3-
  • Stepper 2 Green to Hat M4+
  • Stepper 2 Gray to Hat M4-

Then, connect the Female DC Power Adapter to the power terminal block on the hat
