Is there a way to use ramps 1.4 with integrated stepper motor drivers?

That depends on the interface of the stepper. I only know of integrated drivers with SPI or CAN-bus.
With the momentary firmware they are not useable.

If the motor's driver accepts step, direction, and enable inputs you should be able to drive them. But do they microstep? There should be dip switches for setting motor current and microstepping ratios. If you don't have any of that you may be SOL. Do you have a data sheet? What does it say?

Here is a picture of the connections on the motor

That looks like a standard external stepper driver interface

wire like this



NB this image is wrong, there is no 5v on that middle pin of the ramps, its on the right most pin of that connector labeled vcc

From the limited info given

is this the manual?

Yes its an STM23R-2NN from Applied Motion.

My question is how do I hook it up to the Ramps 1.4. I'm a machinist and know very little about electronics.

I appreciate all the information from you guyd

scroll up 4 posts... to the big image of how to connect it.

OK,

I'll study that image and research it more

Thanks so much you guys, I have a few more questions,

If I am planning to use a 12v power supply for Ramps, should I have a separate 24v power supply for these steppers.
I am only planning to use these steppers for the x and the y axis.

Thanks Again,
I'm a total Noob

Is there an English version of the picture above

your kidding right?

all the pins and ports are the same letters...

The only thing that changes is the title

Can I run these types of stepper motors on 12 volts?
Re: Integrated stepper driver

from the manual I posted earlier

Second bullet point, 4th line into the document!

DC Power Source, 12-70VDC

So yes you can. But it will depend on how much torque you need... if your moving a heavy load you may need more voltage
