Let me first say I am VERY new to electronics, so I apologize ahead of time (I'm very active on StackOverflow.com, so I understand). I have the following components I'm attempting to control with an Arduino Uno:
- 42BYGHW609 NEMA 17 Stepper
- DQ420MA Microstep Driver
- 12V-36V Regulated power supply
All components are listed here: at Ebay
My question: Is it safe to connect this regulated power supply directly to my driver and the driver to my motor? The motor is rated at 1.7A and 3.3V but the driver has 12V in. Is this a safety hazard? Do I need to do something to lower the voltage to the motor or does the driver handle this?
