Hi All,
have just been looking at the Leadshine website, all sorts of goodies...

I have not had the chance to play with any of their gear and ask what is your opinion re quality/reliability?

Those DM series drivers look like the 'bees knees', doesn't specify the peak output voltage but guess its rather more than 80V,
really good for high speed ops. The Vexta drivers I use also have 230VAC input and I got a surprise when I put my scope on
the output and found 150V peak output. Must stress the stepper insulation like hell but I've been giving them what-o for a few
years without fault and they're not new when I got them.

Given that high voltage is the simplest expedient to overcoming inductance induced delay I would have thought manufacturers would
be pushing for higher voltage specs, vacuum impregnation and that sort of thing, the same as they do for servos.
