    It says 350 Watt, so 30 Amp total.

    The only thing is, many stepper drives don't want you to use switch mode power supplies. A lot of them say to use only a linear supply. Check the data sheet for your driver(s) before spending the money.

    Hi shortbus. Can I power normal DC motors such as linear actuators with a switching power supply? Because that was my intention and not to power a stepper.

    i've got a power supply which is pretty much identical, except without the fan.

    the outputs are soldered together internally. So the power output is shared between the six terminals (3 positives, 3 grounds)

    Thanks for the reply. Do you know if i can used a switching power supply to power a DC motor (linear actuator and worm geared DC motors) ??

    OK, you through me off with the CNC mention. Thought you meant you were making a CNC, my bad. Probably no problem for a brushed motor.
