Mysteriously Faulting Stepper Motor, Closed-loop

Mysteriously Faulting Stepper Motor, Closed-loop

Hi everyone, welcome back. My name is Kent, and today, we’ll look at a problem that I had with my CNC mill conversion [Precision Matthews PM25]. Despite their relatively small size, I’m successfully using 280 oz-in NEMA 23 closed-loop three-phase stepper motors. [Leadshine ES-M32320] Being closed-loop, the driver knows if the motor is out of …
