Move the drive power to this, leave the 24V supply to do the logic stuff only.

Why ?

4. This driver is a three phase driver (For Three phase stepper motors) Looking at the part number it implies that the maximum voltage is 80V DC and the current is 6.0 A.
3 = three phase
M = Motor driver
8 = Max voltage (80V)
60 = 6.0 A maximum current.

This is the typical makeup of the part numbers.

They did work well before the previous set of PSUs died. The current PSU is one of them el cheapo ebay ones, I presume they are SMPS.

Id like to sell the lathe but need it to be 100% reliable before I do. Any suggestions on what PSU would suit if I was just going to upgrade this? Lets assume 36 or 48V max.

lll take a look at the AM882 anyways.

Thanks

Thanks Gary. I looked on your and a few other sites to try and find who makes this driver, but no such luck.

I also know little about the motors, it was all fit by someone before I bought the lathe. Not a bad job overall. The PSUs that failed looked to be fairly high end things, but voltage is only 24V.

6. Using that search phrase, Ive found this, similar.

I might be able to find the manufacturer spec eventually

7. So the 6 is RMA current and its up to 80V DC.

RMS ? ;p

9. Yes RMS, have big manly fingers and the a and the s are quite close.
