my suggestion is to connect it to the motor port on the ManaSE. That supplies 12V. You probably want a 3 axis controller though

Yes but can this 12v to the board draw 2A

I have a board with 3 axes

I can see that the motor it self have power input (or I think it is?), can I supply 12V 2,5A as  extra power supply

It doesnt look like there is any switching on the motor pcb, just spike suppression caps, I would say connecting 12v to the barrel connector on the motor will run it flat out and the 2 wire connector will be connected in parallel with it. So if you have a control board with a decent mosfet on it then just use the motor output on the board and forget about the barrel connector.

Okay that sounds the right way to go
Thanks :)
