I went with the "3 axis package" deal from cncrouterparts.com which includes :
- 48V 7.3A switching power supply
- Gecko G540 4 axis stepper motor driver
- 3 High-torque Nema 23 380 oz-in stepper motors. These motors already have the current set resistors installed in a pro-grade metal shell. No soldering or crimping required. These are optimized for the G540. These motors use all of the 3.5A the G540 has to offer.
- 3 High-performance flexible motor cables: (1) 6'and (2) 12' cables
I also bought the parallel cable to connect the driver to the computer
My reason for doing so was my desire to get an all in one system without the need to solder a board or construct cables to connect motors to driver. Admittedly not the most economical solution but I was OK with the added costs to the overall project.
