    Default Driver settings

    Dear all,
    I have a DM542T driver and I am not sure about the settings to choose.
    In the settings of microstepping is not explained how to set it with full step. I think to do it I have to put all the switches in ON position... do you confirm it?
    Furthermore I am using a Nema23 that is rated at 2.8 Amps. I don't know if I have to set the driver for 2.8 Amps of peak current or of RMS current?

    Thanks

    I just completed a small plasma table with the same component selection as yours. Page 7 in the manual linked below should answer your questions.

    I had already read the manual, but both my questions are not solved there...

    The most commonly used microstep settings are 1/8 or 1/10.
    Use the peak current.
