Thread: best stepper driver???????
Big question I know,but just wondered what every one is using.
I had hoped to modify an old driver board but that went up in smoke tonite, which has shown me how difficult it is to fault find on a single board and has put me off getting one of the "all in one boards" from china
I need 3 axis to drive 2 phase bipolar motors wired in parallel at 2 amp per phase, any ideas?
Arc sells the same driver cheaper and it includes VAT.

Are they the same driver John ? or the PM range ?
i'm using MSD542 as well, i'v used the routoutcnc drivers as well.
They are not the same driver, close but not the same.
As allways in china you will find copies of everything.
Leadshine are the largest manufacture of stepper drivers in china, and there are lots of copies of their drivers, some good, some not.
by the way i will match Arc euro trade prices as long as i have them in stock.
You may also want to try our PM752 for higher current motors, it is a very good driver and goes all the way up to 70V.Visit Us: www.zappautomation.com
Actually they may be the same, after looking at their webpage.Visit Us: www.zappautomation.com
Now you tell me......:heehee:
I've decided to roll my own, with the help of Tribbles of course. 4amp, idle current reduction and full power on half step but no micro stepping.
If it dosnt work out then £30-40 an axis sounds great
My all in one packed up ages ago, and put me off finishing my machine. I have decided to give it another go now. All I am missing is the motor drivers. Do these boards work with Probotix H23 - 400 4 wire motors ?. Thats all the info on the motors. I didnt buy them myself.

HT23-400-8.pdf, most drivers will run motors but you want to match them really.
