Tips to Avoid Stepper Motor Resonance Problems 

When an application requires a reliable, low-cost motor with simple operation, stepper motors can be hard to beat. They can be driven step by step without needing an encoder or Hall sensor for rotor position feedback. However, the same straightforward design and driving method that makes stepper motors popular can lead to resonance problems in certain conditions.
