Stepper Motor Driver MKS LV8729

The MKS LV8729 is a high quality replacement for the A4988 stepper driver.  It has similar current rating of the A4988, but is a lot more quiet and smooth and can run up to 1/128 micro stepping.  Compatible with all standard 3D Printer Controller boards.  Ideal for 3D printer, laser cutter, foam cutter and small CNC machine.

Stepper Motor Driver MKS LV8729 Specifications:

  • Voltage supply: 6 - 36V

  • Current rating: 1.5A Maximum

  • Micro stepping: 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/64, 1/128.

  • Heat sink included

  • It is recommended to have forced airflow of the stepper driver for cooling when running.

The micro stepping are set according to the chart below:


To measure the current output of the stopper driver, measure the voltage between the potentiometer on the stepper driver and ground on the controller board, as shown in the picture below:


Multiply the measured voltage by 2 to calculate the output current as shown in the chart below:
