    Ok well, that's a whopping 14mh which is common for Cheap Chinese motors and will certainly need a good amount of volts if you want speed but it could go either way on motor heating with 230V with it only being 7nm.
    However, If you have the Drive already then you can connect it up and will soon see if it gets hot, for a short period of time this won't damage the motor or drive.

    Given the application and the fact it's probably not going to be moving very quickly then you will most likely be ok. However I would certainly test the output with a volt meter before connecting to the drive just in case it's putting out more than 48V and if possible adjust the output to it's lowest setting.
    If more than 48v then I wouldn't use it as your very close to the limit.

    Any of the higher-powered drives allowing 80 - 100Vac will easily handle this job, even with high inductance motor, you'll just have less rpm than a lower inductance motor would provide given the same voltage. But the fact you probably won't need higher rpm's then it won't be a problem.
    Then just use a toroidal transformer which gives the output you require. You could actually use a toroidal transformer for the high powered drives provided it's within the drives voltage range. This would lower the output voltage and lessen the motor heating.
    -use common sense, if you lack it, there is no software to help that.

    Thanks for the reply Jazz.

    I've not got the driver already but thanks for the advice. I'll buy it and fingers crossed all will be ok.

    I'll keep all your other points in mind regarding the PSU.

    Thanks again.
