Question #: 5765

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

Current Solution

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?

    The Pokeys57cnc board: https://www.buildyourcnc.com/item/electronicsAndMotors-electronic-component-breakout-Mach4-mach3-USB-ethernet-Board

    This board contains a 0-10V output at pin #17 that can be connected to the spindle's VFD 0-10V input. On the VFD, this terminal is typically called AI0 or above.

    Pin #14 on the Pokeys57cnc board can also be used as a spindle error input.

    The Galvanically isolated I/O section of terminals on the Pokeys57cnc board (which also contain the pins 14 and 18, can be used to serve as the on/off for the spindle/VFD using the VFDs digital input.

  • Is there a mapping on the input (switch) pins to an axis on the parallel breakout board?

    The mapping of the input pins of the parallel breakout board is configured through software. The input pin are very versatile and can be mapped to all kinds of different types of input including axis limits and axis homing.

  • The breakout board that I have says that on the input pins I have five volts, the plan calls for these pins are ground connectors, which. Is correct?

    If you have the breakout board from this site, then the input pins have gnd connectors next to them. If you have a breakout board purchased elsewhere, or one of our older breakout boards, you may need to use the 5V connectors as the return, but make sure that the jumpers are set correctly. If you don't get any action from these switches in your software, recheck the jumpers and connections, or use the GND terminals on the power supply.

  • My driver has Pul+,Pul-,Dir+,Dir-,Ena+,Ena-. How do I connect the driver to my BoB.

    Pul+ is the Step+ and Pul- is the Step-. Pul is short for pulse. A pulse will create a step. Don't worry about the enable terminals.

    On the x-axis, pin #2 can go to pul- and pin #3 can go to dir-. The 5v will go to pul+ and dir+. The configuration for each axis for step will be active low and toggle active low for the dir on each axis to make it go in the direction desired.

    Next time, purchase the drivers from us and you will have fewer problems.

    Hi, I have an IHSS57-36-20 stepper motor with integrated driver (pulse mode) in my printer but it looks the paper moving distance is changing according to the paper tension. Has this version any encoder or I lose some steps?

  • HOW DO I WIRE FROM THE BREAKOUT BOARD TO DRIVER?

    CP+ to COM
    CP- to STEP
    CP+ to CW+ (small jumper wire)
    CW- to DIR

    Additional Information:
    If the driver does not have CP or CW labels, the CP is Step and the CW is Direction or DIR. If you connect the 5v to CP+ (or Step+) and CW+ (or DIR+) and the pin to CP- (or Step-) and another pin to CW- (or DIR-), then in software, the configuration for the step on that axis must be active low. Otherwise, if you connect the GND to CP- (or Step-) and CW- (or DIR-) and the pin to CP+ (or Step+) and another pin to CW+ (or DIR+), then in software, the configuration for the step on that axis must be active high.

    Additional Information:
    If you have a driver that is labeled pul, dir and ena: Pul+ is the Step+ and Pul- is the Step-. Pul is short for pulse. A pulse will create a step. Don't worry about the enable terminals.

    On the x-axis, pin #2 can go to pul- and pin #3 can go to dir-. The 5v will go to pul+ and dir+. The configuration for each axis for step will be active low and toggle active low for the dir on each axis to make it go in the direction desired.

  • Should I connect both the USB and the 25 pin connector of the parallel breakout board to the computer?

    The parallel breakout board has the db25 connector for data and the USB connector for power. Connect the USB from the computer to the parallel breakout board so the breakout board will have 5V of power coming from the computer. The db25 connector (connector with the 25 pins) receive data signals for each pin from 1 to 17 and have respective numbered screw terminals, some for input and some for output (18 to 25 are gnd pins).

  • Using a Pokey57 CNC and Mach 4 can you tell me how to connect my laser. The laser has three wires.. Ground - 12V Power and PMW.

    Do you have a TL or a TH for triggering the laser? If you power the digital side of your laser power supply with 12V and tie the gnd with the PWM gnd on the pokeys57CNC controller, you may be able to use the PWM on the pokeys57CNC controller. Before you do this, I would suggest that you contact polabs support (http://support.polabs.com/) and ask them if this is possible.

  • How do I connect my motor wires to the driver?

    Use the datasheet associated to the motor that you purchased. Use the bipolar parallel configuration to optimum performance. The datasheets are located in their respective motor product pages. Just click on the motion electronics at the left and scroll down to the motor you have and click on the title, or datasheet link next to the motor. The datasheet will either be in the form of a pdf, or within the instructions on that product page.

  • How do I connect a Z-Axis touch plate to the Planet-CNC USB interface?

    "Semi automatic" measuring is possible.
    1. Place movable tool sensor (touch plate) on material.
    2. Click "Measure Offset Z". Tool will move down, touch sensor and move up.
    3. "Measure Offset Z" button is still down.
    4. Click "Offset - Current Z" - this will set offset Z
    5. Click "Measure Offset Z" again to release it and restore normal mode."

    The connections to the USB interface is as follows:
    - The spindle is connected to the gnd terminal (which is also connected to the end mill). Alternatively, you can connect the gnd directly to the end mill is access is permitted.
    - The touch plate (movable tool sensor) is connected to the Z-- terminal.

    What will happen: When the end mill (gnd) is in contact with the touch plate (Z--), there will be a connection from gnd to the Z-- triggering this Z-- action and the software will recognize the connection (like a button press, or a limit switch triggering).

  • I cannot turn the shaft of my stepper motor. It not even connected to a driver

    The motor is creating it's own EMF when you try to turn the shaft manually. When coils are connected (or not connected) to any circuit that is not powered can cause unpredictable results.

    The motor freezing from just turning it by hand with no connection is surely the wires touching each other. This is actually how we test if a motor is good or bad. If the motor freezes when two of the wires are touching, that means the motor is functioning properly since the magnets are causing current to flow through that coil opposing the magnet.

  • For your USB breakout board, do you guys have, or have a source for a connector that fits over the "keyboard jog" pins?

    At the current moment, we do not have a connector/attachment for the keyboard jog pins on our USB Breakout board. We are currently under development of a keyboard jog panel, that will connect to the keyboard jog pins.
