    MB3 + ESS wiring

    Hello,

    I recently purchased the MB3 + ESS combo and have not realized how much work it actually needed. I'm switching from a random chinese BOB. Using Leadshine steppers.
    I apologize in advance for my ignorance, I'm not sure what other information to provide. I've tried looking at the PDF guides, however, I cannot seem to figure it out for the life of me.

    Thank you.

    Power supply: 24V / 3.3A
    Stepper motors: Leadshine DMA860H

    Hi FSS,
    I recently changed from a MB2 to a MB3 , as I had damaged the MB2.
    I made up a little wiring diagram of my system. I hope it helps you.

    Whether or not this will help me (I will update the thread), I just want to thank you in advance for your assistance and contribution.
    Thank you very much.

    I will take a look at it now.

    Merry Christmas.

    Good morning/evening,

    I appreciate your assistance nonetheless. I hired a local pro and am up, running now. Just learning how to work Mach 4 now.

    For anyone else that is new and or needs guidance, please PM me.
    NOTE: I'm still a newbie, so I might not be able to help you completely, but I will be more than happy to try.

    For future people: (I know how annoying it can be when the last post is "I solved x problem!" without the how. I will be attaching pictures of my settings/electrical connection. YMMV.

    I've uploaded two folders "ESS Configuration", "Control Configuration" separately in .zip format. They both include .jpg/.png of the settings I have currently set for my machine.

    **Some settings may not be configured yet/may vary on your machinery.**
