    HELP HELP WE NEED HELP

    I’m trying to complete this CNC router for school.
    I teach boys (14-19) in lock up. I’ve promised them I can change their world if they let me.
    CNC routers have changed mine.
    I’ve wired the motors to the drivers correctly.
    I gave proper voltage in and out.
    I’m just paralyzed with fear in completing the wiring of the motors to the B.O.B.
    I’ve researched You Tube, but I can’t pull the trigger.
    Can you help me get this done?
    I know I’m close.

    I think you mean wiring the drivers to the BOB, not the motors.

    You are close. The details you are missing are normally supplied with the drivers and you should look carefully at that documentation. You can find it here: https://www.automationtechnologiesin...oad.php?id=242

    Yeah I think your big power supply needs to be ran to your drivers and not through the BOB. I have only wired a setup once but it worked the BOB I used only used 5v but is different than yours for sure. What BOB is that? And what motors are you using?

    The BOB is a Chinese one of course.
    6 Axis for Mach 3
    The motors I believe are bi-polar

    Those drivers have a built in power supply.

    Do you have any documentation on the breakout board? Not sure why you would have two power supplies wired to it? What voltage are those power supplies, and what terminals are they wired to??

    Have you contacted CNC Router Parts/Avid for tech support help on your CNC Router Parts/Avid machine?

    Did not even notice those were ac drivers. That break out board is interesting for sure. I found this description for it on amazon and googled it 0 documentation but there is an instructable may be worth looking at as it had a pic I couldnt read on my phone.
