Question #: 14454

Question: D556 driver has green light flashing have no movement x axis

Current Solution

The green light flashing does not seem to be listed as a fault condition. Does the red LED turn on, or do you see the red LED blinking?

  • Can I have two motors and drivers on a single axis?

    Yes, you can have two drivers connected to a single axis. If you want the two drivers/motors to work as a single, more concerted pair, then I would suggest connecting the two drivers to a single step pulse and direction signal.

    That is to say:
    driver 1 and driver 2 have wires connecting from the CP terminals of the drivers to a single step terminal on the interface board (USB or parallel breakout board), and the CW terminals of the drivers connected to a single direction terminal on the interface board.

    If the motors need to spin in the opposite directions, simply reverse one of the the motor A B coil connections (i.e. wires that would go to A+ and A- is connected to the B+ and B-, and the same with the B+ and B- to the A+ and A-). You can alternatively resolve this mechanically if desired.

  • Would common practice be to have the DRO show positive moment or negative movement when moving the Z axis down?

    Safety should be the first consideration when configuring the Z-axis and how it shows on the DRO (Digital Readout). That is to say, the configuration should make sense to the operator of the machine.

    We zero the tip of the end mill at the surface of the stock we are using. When the z-axis moves into the material (the direction that the z-axis travels when the page down key is pressed) the DRO goes into the negative region.

  • My cnc router started doing strange things today after about 20 minutes into a fairly simple project. I noticed the red lights were flashing in my 4 Stepping Motor Drivers (24-70. Does anyone know where I should look to solve my problem?

    Can you describe strange a bit further? Also which specific drivers are you using? CW230 or 3.0A driver? or the 6.0A driver or CW8060?

  • I have 8 wires wired to my driver in the right places. I need to know how to wire the relay Ken

    There is no need to connect a stepper motor to a relay. The stepper motor driver controls the stepper motor completely.

  • What is the height/cutting of the z axis on the green lean 4x8

    At the highest z position, the measurement from the collet of the spindle is 6-1/4" (158.75 mm) from the spoilboard. The spoilboard is 3/4" measured from the rib that is rests on.

  • I have NEMA 34 motors for a GreenBull 6x12. After 2 weeks of use, my Y axis motor has developed play in the front but not rear of the motor. Is this a motor defect or has something come loose somewhere? Thanks,

    If there is play within the motor itself, then that motor may be defective. Call us to provide us more detail on this issue.

  • Have you guys ever shipped a Greenbull to Brazil? Do you know how can it be done?

    You can determine if the country is serviceable by:
    - selecting the items you want to purchase on the website
    - go to the cart (shopping cart top left of any webpage)
    - log in, or register
    - Enter the address and click on calculate shipping.

    The webpage will return the direct rates and whether your area is serviced or not. Feel free to enter any address as long as you are able to receive the package from that address.

    Additional Information:
    I did that and got two options: UPS ($1400) or FEDEX ($3800). Maybe FEDEX is already including the customs fees and import taxes, I don't know. I am afraid of buying it and having problems with customs later. That is why I asked if you guys have ever sent any machine to Brazil just to check if everything went fine with customs.

  • Does your electronics combo allow 2 drivers on a single axis on the interface board?

    Yes, you can have two drivers connected to a single axis. If you want the two drivers/motors to work as a single, more concerted pair, then I would suggest connecting the two drivers to a single step pulse and direction signal.

    That is to say:
    driver 1 and driver 2 have wires connecting from the CP terminals of the drivers to a single step terminal on the interface board (USB or parallel breakout board), and the CW terminals of the drivers connected to a single direction terminal on the interface board.

    If the motors need to spin in the opposite directions, simply reverse one of the the motor A B coil connections (i.e. wires that would go to A+ and A- is connected to the B+ and B-, and the same with the B+ and B- to the A+ and A-). You can alternatively resolve this mechanically if desired.

  • What size motor is powering the y axis on the greenLean CNC machine?

    For our greenLean CNC vertical machine, was built and controlled using 2 651-oz in motors/425 oz-in motor.
    The 651-oz motors runs both the x/y axis, as our 425-oz motor controls the z axis.

  • How to connect the 5 axis breakout board(old one) to the 1 Watt laser driver TTL input?

    Depending on the model BoB, we recommend wiring it to pin 6 or CP- for your z axis since our blackTooth laser and laser/spindle hybrid, will use the Z-axis as a trigger to enable the laser just as a CNC will use pin 6 or CP- for the z-axis to enable going downwards into the material.



    Additional Information:

    This is the BoB that i have.
    I am an absolute beginner at this laser stuff. So if i wire it to pin 6 which is the z axis step pin on my board. what else needs to be done if i am using the mach3 engraving plugin. Can i use the step pin of the 4th and 5th axis instead?

  • my x motor seems to ignore some movements causing it to be innacurate, how do i fix this?

    If one or more motor is not responding, please follow the troubleshooting directions below:

    For parallel Bob only! Make sure both the parallel and USB are connected.

    Re-check wiring, and connections for continuity (no breaks in the wires) and check for correct wiring locations from driver to BoB.
    Check dip switch settings on the driver.
    Check components, by swapping the motors (ex. y-axis motor to z or x-axis driver and z or x-axis motor to y-axis driver) to check if motor functions on another driver.
    Depending on software check step low active (mach 3) or invert pulse (planet-cnc) for the axis which is not responding.
    Mach 3 - config/port & pins/motor outputs / Planet-CNC - file/settings/axes

  • Can I use the driver's I have with the Pokey57

    Since the Pokey57CNC outputs standard pulse and direction signals, you can use any stepper driver. So, you do not need to use the Postep driver to operate your stepper motors.

    The Pokey57CNC control board is extremely feature rich and can be use to control very complex light or heavy CNC systems. Since most CNC system use high current drivers, the Pokey57CNC can be used with these systems.

  • HOW DO I WIRE THE 4TH AXIS THAT YOU SELL. I HAVE MACH3 SOFTWARE. NO INSTRUCTIONS ON YOUR SITE

    The motor that is attached to the 4th axis is wired as follows:

    The motor should have red, green yellow and blue wires coming form the motor. The red and green are paired as one coil and the yellow and blue is paired as the other coil. You can wire the motor to a 3.0 amp driver with red to A+, green to A-, Yellow to B+ and Blue to B-
