What Fuse do you need?

Fuses are cheap insurance.

A simple but effective way to work out what size fuse to use when there are so many different motor, PSU and control board combinations...grab a bunch of different size fuses, started with the larger one and decrease the fuse size until you find the point at which a fuse blows. The one used previous to that is what you should be running.

Or for more precision you can actually measure the current load as @Martin van Hagen suggests with a shunt: http://www.xsimulator.net/community...est-current-loads-no-problem.6064/#post-80950
