Re: Triac stepper motor voltage/amperage

I've eventually discovered (after removing some overspray paint) the motors are placarded 3.1 amps and 3.5a amps for the Z so no resistor required for the Z as far as I can make out but 3.1k for the x and y

Re: Triac stepper motor voltage/amperage

Thanks for the reply.
From this thread it seems the stepper amperage is 3.1 amps and 3.7 amp for the Z.
Do you think using resistors to set it at 3.1amps with the 48v power supply would be ok?

Triac stepper motor voltage/amperage

Hi all I have an older triac which I'm upgrading. I want to run a Centroid acorn board and a gecko g540, I also have a harmonic drive I want to run as a 4th axis from the Gecko. The power supply I have is 48v 12.5amps, I presume this voltage will be ok but does anyone know what the amperage of the m...

Re: Tormach TTS on Triac R8 spindle

I'll reply to my own question. I bought a collet and a ER32 collet holder from Tormach to check it out, and it fits perfectly. It also features a small reduction in tool length. Now I just need to figure out the axial force that Tormach recommend for the drawbar, so i can start designing a quick ch...
