  • Voltage regulated spindle speed controlled by parallel interface as function of supply voltage.


De indicatieleds op het bord geven aan of de motoren in bedrijf zijn, maar zijn niet afhankelijk van of de stepper-enable hoog of laag is. De indicatieleds zijn vanaf de db25 poort gezien gekoppeld aan de motoren x,y,z,c,d

  • 12-16V DC power supply for Nema 17 stepper motors
  • 16-24V DC power supply for Nema 23 stepper motors
  • 24-36V DC power supply for Nema 34 stepper motors

Amperage Selectie

Output current of the power supply can be calculated by the following expressions: Output current = Rated current of your stepper motors * quantity + 2A (For example, if you want to drive 3 * 3A Nema 23 stepper motors, theoretically 24V 11A DC power supply is recommended, but higher power such as 24V 15A also will be good.
