Unipolar
upto10Amp & upto 100Volt
Use TIP120 and up(Transistors) Cheap say 20 USD/Euro

Also see Dak Engineering
for Puls&Dir to Phase PIC 

Bipolar is better as UniPolar in Performance
Unipolar is Cheaper
 
 
 
Gecko Drive Resistor calculator

Phase Amperage (For example 2.25 gives 22.26 KOhm resistor )
Resistor in KiloOhms = (47 * I) / (7 - I)  For 1 to 7Amp range G210A (Jumpers inside)
Use a Kilo Ohm Resistor (1/4Watt 5%) Connected on terminal 11-12
Resistor in KiloOhms = (47 * I) / (2 - I)  For 0.3 to 2Amp Low range G210A (Jumpers inside) 
Use a Kilo Ohm Resistor (1/4Watt 5%) Connected on terminal 11-12

I wanted a status LED on the Capacitor
60VDC  a Green LED 20Ma 2V
Gives a resistor off 2900Ohm 1,16Watt


CURRENT LIMITING RESISTOR CALCULATOR

FOR "LIGHT EMITTING DIODES" = LED

  The calculators on this page can be used to find current limiting resistors and currents for Light Emitting Diodes.

  The first calculator determines the resistance for a desired LED current while the second calculates the current for a given resistance.

Voltages in Volts - Current in Milliamps - Resistance in Ohms
When selecting resistors - It is advisable to choose the next higher standard value.
A browser capable of running Javascript is required for this calculator.

  If LED's are connected in series - ADD their voltage drops together to get the total voltage drop.

  Entering a zero for the LED voltage drop will yield the resistance and wattage for a resistance only circuit.
