How do I determine the Amperage to set the Drives?
A 50V 12 Amp Power Supply.
CW250 Drives, that can be set between 1.5 and 5 Amps in .5 Amp steps, using dipswitches.
Steppers that are rated 3VDC/.42ohms.
(3V/ 1.8Deg. SHINANO STEP MOTOR-MPJA, Inc.)
I was told to set them at 5 Amps. Everything is working, but the Steppers get real hot real fast. After only 1 minute of operation, I can only hold on to a Stepper for about 2 seconds.
Thanks for your help!
