In my intended circuit, i have 2 stepper motors (ratings: 5V, 0.57A/phase) connected to an INA219 high side current sensor which is then connected to the motorshield
does the A4988 motor driver have its own in built current sensor?
it possible to connect an INA219 current sensor to it?
what is the best way to power such a circuit? i was intending of having 3 external power sources that would power each stepper motor but i read on the forums and i could use the arduino supply but i must remove the power jumper?
assume the batteries are external power sources
The sensor would need to be connected to the controller (shield), not the motor. It would go between the positive terminal of the external power terminal and the high side of your power supply.
