So I just finished mounting all electronical gadgets of my litle machine and it doesnt work
What I have as it follows:
- 3 Geckodrive G203V
- PMDX 126 breakout board
- 134 PMDX board to conect easily the geckos
- Antek Power Supply with 56V and 18A
- 3 nema 34 1850oz / 8A/phase / 3mH/phase (wired up in parallel mode)
I suposse that I have all correctly wired up, but when I try to move any axis the breakout board receives the signal OK but the motors makes like a litle try to move (it sound like a "pop") but finally no moves (it has a holding torque, so I cant move it manually)
The doubts I have are:
1- Each motor needs 8A/phase, but as they told me the gecko just supports 7A so in the end, the power supply wont need at least:
7x3 = 21A ?
What will hapen if I just provide them 18A ? Wont move, they will move slowlier ?
2- Will be a problem if in my electrical installation I just have 10A ?
As it says in the geckodrive page (here) I will try to measure tomorrow those voltages, but I am almost sure that it will be a problem mentioned above.

Thanks for future help
