    My team is working with adafruit’s motor shield v2 to control two Nema 17 3D printer stepper motor 59 N/cm 2A 12-24V. We plan to only run them on 12V. I found Dan’s video Let’s Make a 4-axis CNC Gcode Interpreter for Arduino, I was wondering what product he was using to connect to the power supply. We’re using an outlet adapter with 4 outputs that can power the Arduino Uno and motors. How should we attach the adaptor to the motor shield?

    The AMS2 sheild has dedicated power terminal blocks. you will probably need 12v4a for each shield.
    If I remember correctly the AMS2 cannot do more than 1.5a for each stepper? So you might cook the board.
    To connect normal power supplies to a board I use https://www.marginallyclever.com/product/55×21-female-power-plug/
