some questions on high speed stepper stalls
First post and wish i had found this forum a few months ago
They say stepper motor suppliers love newbies
I have a Warco wm18 mill and have added a power z axis stepper but it stalls at high speed
This is the driver i am using - https://www.oyostepper.com/goods-111-Digital-Stepper-Driver-10-42A-20-50VDC-for-Nema-17-23-24-Stepper-Motor.html
I have set the driver to 4.2a and i think, can't remember without opening enclosure, to 1600 steps/rev
It works quite well but tends to stall at max speed especially raising the head. For info the head does have a gas strut helper
so where have i gone wrong?
