    Re: NEED HELP WIRING BREAKOUT BOARD

    the breakout board can only control 6 stepper drivers
    if you don't want to use the 3 relays or need the analogue control output to control the spindle speed

    to control the 3 relays and...

    Re: Wiring NPN NC sensors to DB25-1205 BOB

    Hi millhouse_

    is this how you connected the diode

    with the cathode connecting to the sensor output ?

    Re: Wiring NPN NC sensors to DB25-1205 BOB

    Hi millhouse_

    this is what you should have

    432452

    if you have the jumpers fitted on the BOB

    Vss is connected to the printer port GND & - 5V
    Vdd is connected to the +5V supply

    Re: Wiring NPN NC sensors to DB25-1205 BOB

    Hi millhouse_

    How many NPN N/C sensors are you trying to connect to one BOB input ?

    what's the part number of the sensor ?



    A while ago I reverse engineered the BOB from photos found on...

  7. Re: Cold weather affecting proximity sensors?

    yes the cold could effect the sensors

    what is the sensors part number ?

    If its from Honeywell or Allegro Micro Electronics you may be able to get a detailed data sheet

  9. Re: Incoming power voltage to my Haas causing power on issues

    I don't have a Haas so I don't have a schematic or any details of the electronics used

    but notice the 2 days it failed the outside temperature was below 20 F

    32F or 0C is freezing !!

  10. Re: 3040-T ROUTER MAKING SPINDLE TURN ON /OFF WITH PROGRAM

    have you connected one axis to the BOB or all three?


    the 6th photo in post 3 shows a 3 pin connector on your stepper driver

    so you just step direction and common - not sure if its 0V or...
  11. Re: 3040-T ROUTER MAKING SPINDLE TURN ON /OFF WITH PROGRAM

    Yes
    That BOB will be easier with the screw terminals to connect to
    431332

    I would still use the larger 1XHCEL Board relay to keep the mains away from the BOB !!!!

    Re: 5v proximity sensors

    Re: 5v proximity sensors

    What breakout board or motion control do you want to connect the 5v proximity sensors to ?

    why do you think you need a optocoupler ?

  14. Re: 3040-T ROUTER MAKING SPINDLE TURN ON /OFF WITH PROGRAM

    if your not using the 4th axis

    this is one possible way of using the "clock" signal from the printer port pin 2 assuming the BOB schematic is correct

    431266




    looking at the schematic...
  15. Re: 3040-T ROUTER MAKING SPINDLE TURN ON /OFF WITH PROGRAM

    I have found this data sheet for the relay board

    431258

    and a schematic for the BOB that needs checking

    431260


    I have a couple of questions
  16. Re: 3040-T ROUTER MAKING SPINDLE TURN ON /OFF WITH PROGRAM

    After looking through your photos

    If the HN25-150-24 powers your stepper drivers , I would use the 24V version of the relay board so the stepper driver power supply can power the relay coil

  17. Re: 3040-T ROUTER MAKING SPINDLE TURN ON /OFF WITH PROGRAM

    this is the first relay I found that may enable your BOB to switch the mains supply to your spindle

    Re: BREAK OUT BOARD HELP

    Just looking at your photo of the BOB I can not read all the labels but

    I can make out you have the 12 outputs ( pins 1 to 9 + pin 14 + pins 16 & 17 )

    the question is how many axis do...

    Re: Proximity Sensors Gecko G540 and Mach3

    yes thats correct

    its the easiest way to narrow down the problem

    to see if its the G540
    or
    the Proximity Sensors and / or wiring to the 12V power supply


    As the sensor is described...
