Our new generation of unkillable drives, the Raptor Series, are here! Check out the GR214V, a drive with more protection circuitry, newer anti-resonance algorithms, and a slew of features designed to make your life simpler.

The “unkillable” G203V (Vampire) drive has been a staple Geckodrive product for years. As part of our line of bullet proof drives, protection is the foundation of the G203V’s reputation. With active short circuit protection, overvoltage protection, overcurrent regulation, and an internal user-replaceable fuse, the drive is nearly indestructible.

Its ruggedness is not its only significant attribute. Low speed smoothness, mid-band resonance, and full-step morphing allow you to run your stepper motor with more torque and at higher speeds than other similar-classed drives.

Low speed smoothness adjustment and the midband resonance compensation are achieved through an adjustable trimpot where the user can modify performance for specific motors between 1 – 2 revolutions per second. The midband, typically seen between 2 – 4 revolutions per second, is an unstable region on most stepper motors but is compensated for on our drives. Torque can drop out significantly without active adjustment, which the G203V does automatically.

Full Step Morphing is entirely unique to Geckodrive products and can transition your motor to a true full step motor between 4 – 6 revolutions per second. No software changes are required to take advantage of this and accuracy will not be sacrificed. This results in a 30% increase in useable torque over a drive that does not morph.

All Geckodrive motor controls come with our industry leading three-year warranty and free US based technical support. Should a drive sustain damage in the field we offer repairs to minimize your downtime. If you are unsatisfied with your purchase we offer a 90 day return window.

    I run these on my plasma table and have never had any issues. Great

    product, and service that is hard to find these days.

    It just works.

    This a rock-solid stepper motor driver. We use it to drive a stepper motor for our products. We've used about 30 of these and never had an issue.

    They do get hot under heavy load.
    We apply a thermal compound on the back and secure it to an aluminum enclosure that acts as a large passive heat sink.

    I'm very happy with this product.

  4. Great Drive ... great engineering support

    Well, I finally got my new CNC controller build done and tested. It was based on five G203V's. The CNC router has only made its maiden voyage, but designing with the G203V was very straight forward. I had a couple of engineering questions, and Marcus answered them with practical answers and no judgement. Just connect the wires and they work.

    I especially like the opto-isolated Step and Direction and the large heatsink mating surface.

    Only one observation, if I ever have to change the internal fuse, I'll have to remove the drive from the heatsink since the screws to open the case are on the bottom ... very minor observation and I hope to never have to access the fuse!

    Thanks Gecko for this drive.
