Question #: 15063

Question: [NEMA 23 Stepper Motor (425 oz-in 1/4" dual shaft) 2.8 Amps] I have two of these motors, both purchased recently as part of the heavy gantry 3-axis combo. They are warm to the touch when not doing anything. Is this normal? They work when jogged w/mach4

Current Solution

It is normal for stepper motors to get hot to the touch while not moving. There is a setting on the driver that you can set to half current. This is an idle current while the motor is just in a holding position.
