Enter the step angle (degrees) and the pulse frequency (hz) into the Stepper Speed Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Stepper Speed.

## Stepper Speed Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Stepper Speed.

SS = a/360 * pf * 60

Variables:

- SS is the Stepper Speed (RPM)
- a is the step angle (degrees)
- pf is the pulse frequency (hz)

To calculate the stepper speed, divide the step angle by 360, multiply by the pulse frequency, then multiply by 60.

## How to Calculate Stepper Speed?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Stepper Speed.

- First, determine the step angle.
- Next, determine the pulse frequency (hz).
- Next, gather the formula from above = SS = a/360 * pf * 60.
- Finally, calculate the Stepper Speed.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

step angle = .75

pulse frequency (hz) = 1000

SS = a/360 * pf * 60** **= ?
