I have read that you can wire a unipolar stepper to a bipolar driver, which I have, by ignoring the two extra wires. One concern I have is whether connecting a unipolar stepper to a bipolar driver will cause it to lose torque (holding or operating)?
Will it be the same? Increase?
I've read that bipolars are more bang for your buck energy-wise, and since you can "transform" a unipolar stepper to a bipolar good enough that the driver will still work right, I would think that it might run more efficiently. Is this true?
