Stepper phase windings

  1. I have a lot of small stepper motors with 16 leads (8 pair of windings). Is
    there some procedure I can go through to find the phase order of the
    windings. I mean, I need to apply power to these windings, in order, so that
    the motor will move in the most efficient manner. I tried an oscilloscope on
    one set of leads while generating a sinusoidal signal on another but the
    difference in inducted voltage was not enough to tell me which set of leads
    was closest to the one into which I was generating the signal.

    Spin the shaft and observe the induced voltages on the windings?
