Hot Stepper Motor Drivers

  • Hi Yesterday I finnished my delta printer assambly.When I testing sensorles homing I realized stepper motor drivers getting hot (5 minutess worked and it reached up to 55 degrees Celsius)
    is it normal ?
    I using Duet Wife and here is my stepper motors link:
    Step Angle: 0.9
    Current/Phase: 2.4A
    Resistance/Phase: 1.0 Ω
    Inductance/Phase: 1.8 mH
    Holding Torque: 4.8
    Here is my config

    ; Drives
    M569 P0 S1                                   ; Drive 0 goes forwards

    M84 S30                                      ; Set idle timeout

    How did you measure the stepper driver temperature?

    55C is not especially hot for stepper driver chips. They produce an over-temperature warning at about 100C and shut down at about 130C.
