Stuttering stepper motors and under voltage

  • Well,

    The stepper motors on my Kossel XL started stuttering and I did a M122. Could anyone point me to the culprit? I wonder if it are the drivers, a bad connection to the stepper motors or maybe the power supply connection (corsair sf450). Stepper motors are 2.4a and configured to 1.9a in the config.g. What steps can i follow to find out what the problem is? The board seems to be constantly powered as I don't see any leds flickering when the stuttering is there. Below my 122 results with the under voltage events that occurred:

    The first thing to check is that the screws in the VIN terminal block are tight.
