I have read in other threads that people are using 24V power supply’s with the FET-3 stepper controller from stepperworld.com. I am currently using a 12V power supply. Is there a huge difference using 24V? What kind of 24V power supply are people using?

Thanks,

I use 27 volts on that board. I went from 20 inches a minute to 40+ when I moved up from 12 volts. You will need different power resistors.

Balsaman, thanks for your reply

Which power resistors do I need to use?
