    Hi everyone. I am using CNC xPro controller for my project. I am new to electronics so could you please tell which power supply would be the safest option for that controller? Thank you.

    Thank you Bob. Is there too much difference between 12v and 24 power supplies? I was told 24V provides more smoother motor operation but 12V is safer. What would you reccommend for a beginner? Should I go for a safer option?

    Not much to it, plus to plus, negative to negative.
    I don't see any reason to get the 12v other than budget...
    Or if your drivers won't handle the voltage but the cncxpro will handle it....
