    Stepper kit power supply question

    I purcheased a stepper kit from automation technologies, the link is below. It is 4- 5amp 570oz steppers, 4- KL-5056 5.6A 24-50VDC Stepper Motor Drivers, and a 48V/12.5A Power Supply. My question is-- Do I need another power supply to run this kit? I don't know much about this. I see several other companies sell kits that close in specs where the power supply doesn't have the amps for the motors. I am trying to upgrade from a hobbycnc chopper board, which has served me well but is getting moved to a different machine.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Hers a link to the kit I purchased. https://www.automationtechnologiesin...-4-axis-kit-1/

    You should be fine with that kit as is. It's a really good starting place anyways.
