    Stepper Motor Kit

    I've recently purchased a stepper motor kit from automation technologies and comes with two 23 nema stepper motor, two KL-4030, a breakout board, 40V and 5V power supply. Is it possible to just run the motor without using the breakout board but just only with the power supply, driver, and motor itself? Also, can any micro-controller software be compatible with the driver?

    If your signal source can drive the optoisolated inputs of the KL-4030 directly, then you won't need a breakout board.

    According to the manual at http://www.kelinginc.net/KL-4030.pdf each signal source will need to be capable of handling current in the range of approximately 7 to 16 mA.

    As far as microcontroller software, do a search for GRBL.
