    Hi all, new to openbuilds and have purchased a C-beam XL bundle. Was just looking for some opinions on what kind of Power supplies the Stepper that come with the kit require. Thanks and am looking forward to seeing your answers and recommendations. Doug

    It all depends on your stepper drivers.

    Those motors are 3A each, so it should have no problem running 4 of them. MeanWell makes great power supplies at reasonable prices.

    If you need even more torque, I believe the stepper drives could handle up to 48V supply as well, so you have an upgrade path.
