    Default NEMA 34

    Quick question for anyone with experience on nema 34 steppers....Can I run a 34 on the same driver and control board (in theory anyway) that I've been running my 23's on ?

    Control board, no problem. If the output of your existing drive is compatible with the rated current of the NEMA 34 motors then no problem.

    Yes, I do that (use controllers originally purchased for NEMA 23's with NEMA 34's on the one machine) I did look hard at the current consumption though!

    As others mentioned, control board will be fine, but if your driver is sized for a NEMA 23, it probably will not be ideal for a NEMA 34 motor. Most are rated for higher current and have higher inductance, so need higher voltage to run well at higher RPM's.
