I salvaged a stepper motor from an old computer i had laying around, it has 6 wires. The problem is that when i try and measure the resistance between the wires i only get 1 Center tap where the resistance is halved. All other 5 wires are connected to the same coil. I thought this was weird so i opened the motor and tried measuring the resistance directly from the leads on the board, but i got the same result as before. Could it be that i have a 6 wire stepper motor with only 1 coil? Because all of the leads are connected in some way i have tried connecting them all (2 at a time) to an led, while turning the motor around, and the did lit up every time/combination i tried. Does anyone know what type of motor i have, because i have never seen one like this before. The yellow wire is the center wire (15 ohm, connected with all other 5 wires) the rest is 29,8 ohm (connected 1 by 1 except the yellow of course):
Interesting, looks like what you have there is a 5-phase STAR, 6 cable model like this one.
