How do I connect a 6-wire AC 17 stepper motor to Arduino?

Most stepper motors come with four, six, or eight wires. This motor uses six wires. What we need to do is measure the resistance from one motor wire to another. This is because of the way stepper motors are made, stepper motors will have two coils and since this motor has six wires that means there are 3 wires per coil. Each of the two coils will have a common wire attached to the center of the coil, we don't want to use this wire. The way that we can determine which wire this is his by measuring resistance, and the resistance from one of the center wires to one of the other wires on the same coil will be smaller than the other pairs. If two wires are not on the same coil, you will measure an open circuit.

For this example that means we want to connect the orange and blue wires, and the white and red wires, we will ignore the gray wire and brown wire, because they have a smaller resistance. The Adafruit motor shield can run two stepper motors using four wires for each so we're going to connect white and red and orange and blue to stepper motor port to.

 

Cloudray Stepper Motor Series has set the standard for quality, reliability, and durability in stepping motors. The precision of our Torque Power motors is matched only by the dependability of their performance. All Torque Power motors are bi-directional and totally enclosed with permanently lubricated ball bearings for long-lasting, smooth operation.

High Torque, High Precision and Long life is Cloudray's core advantages

 

                       Low vibration,Low heating, No loss of stepFast Response,
                                   Better Acceleration Performance.
   Thanks to a robust design they can be selected for the harshest environments. Precise, open-loop, speed and position control can be achieved with the application of full step, half step, or microstepping electronics.
                 Higher Resolution,Avoidance of Resonance Regions
Stepping angle is adjustable( rang in 18°±5%), 0.9 °stepper motor's stepping angle is smaller, fineness is higher and positioning is more accurate.Avoiding vibration,runs more smoothly and gets lower noise.

                            Sturdy structure, extremely long life
      High quality materials including bearings and shaft made in Japan
Robust assembly, high speed range, and exceptional performance in even the harshest environments make Cloudray Stepper Motors the perfect solution for demanding positioning applications.
Short length and light weight allow them to be used in highly integrated systems.
