Figured I'd ask here instead of via support email in case the information might be needed by anyone else.
I'm curious as to the model/part # of the stepper motors used on the Cetus printer. I assume the extruder and motion motors are two models just based on the fact they look different.
If a model # isn't available, the specific information I'm looking for is the current/phase of the motors. I don't want to overdrive the motors with my new controller card.
I'm surprised no one from Tiertime has read my original message. It's been nearly two weeks! I would think it shouldn't be too difficult to answer. There must be spec sheets lying around for the motors used.
Asked another way: if I provide 1A to the motors would that be too much? 1.25A? 0.75A?
Note: I'm curious about the motion motors (X, Y, Z) and not the exturder. I know what the extruder motor can handle because I am replacing that motor with one I purchased (which included a spec sheet).
Yes, here is the list of specifications for the stepper motor:
- Weight is 350 g (13 oz)
- Shaft diameter is 5 mm “D”
- Current 1.2 A at 4V
- Voltage 4 V
- Resistance 3.3 Ω per coil
No. of phases is 4
If you are planning to buy a stepper motor with all your desired features, then you can take a look at the reliance electric motor.
