These simple but very cleverly-designed modules are built with flyback or “freewheeling” diodes, in order to filter out induction voltages and feedback so as to smoothen the electrical signal waves for smoother acceleration, movement and stopping times.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS FOR TL-SMOOTHER PLUS – STEPPER FILTER MODULE:
These TL-Smoother Stepper Filter Modules are designed and built specifically for 3D printing, and have been stocked to help you improve the quality of your prints by ensuring that all the electrical signals are coherent, evenly spread and consistent throughout each wave cycle. They fit between the stepper drivers and the Stepper Motors, where they help reduce feedback and inductive charges with flyback diodes.
