Hey everyone,I have a vexing question, well to me at least. What voltage power supply should one use to power stepper motors? I have a NEMA 17 stepper and it's specifications doesn't even list its voltage. Researching the NEMA 17 online from its manufacturer reveals a specified voltage of 3.4 V.
I've seen various sites on the internet using 12 V and 24 V power supplies, how does one determine what voltage to use?
I understand that, for example, the max. current draw on my NEMA 17 is 1.7 Amp so of course, the power supply must be capable of continuously supplying more than this.
And a power rating that exceeds the current draw times the voltage, but it's this voltage I'm unsure how to determine.Any assistance would be appreciated.
