Hi, seeking advice before purchasing parts for a home build cnc router...
Will this shield be ok (not burn out if stepper motor is under maximum torque, during a cnc cut)
Adafruit Synthetos gShield
2.5 Amps per winding
planned stepper motors (3) for X,Y,Z axis so X and Y could be moving at once
Nema 23 stepper motors Rated Current/phase 2.8A
It seems not when simply comparing 2.5A and 2.8A but some are somehow using them and I am keen to have as much torque available with this range of stepper motors.
I could be misreading the specs or not understanding the basics of loads and drawing amps...
All help appreciated !
Thanks of reading this far.
