Did you buy everything from here?
a)If you didn’t or changed some things please don’t leave out any details.
I purchased Nema17 Steppers from StepperOnline. They are rated @ 2A per phase and 2.8vdc per phase
Are you using end stops?
a)If so please disconnect them.
b) If the problem is still there leave them disconnected while troubleshooting.
Are you using all my recommended parts?
Yes, using the 8825 drivers
a) If not please list what parts you used.
b) I am not against other peoples parts but most of them have not actually even been tested on a working machine. I am against people making “improved” parts when they have not even tried mine. Please, “don’t fix what ain’t broke”.
Doing the math that is suggested, I have 2.0A x 2.8VDC (per phase) = 5.6W Power but using 12VDC would be 5.6W/12VDC giving .48A x 2 steppers .96A needed. So I trim the pot to .48VDC on VREF to limit current to the 9.6. If I raise my current I do get more power but I can still stall pretty easily. At this point I can only think to increase my voltage. Anyone have any ideas?
