  • WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PARALLEL AND USB ELECTRONICS COMBOS MOTOR KITS

    The parallel (printer cable) port is uses the computer as its main source of pulse trains to operate the motor driver directly. Parallel ports are a direct connection from the processor commonly referred to as GPIO pins (General Purpose I/O pins) and provides a convenient and powerful way to interface with the computer. The parallel breakout board is included in those kits only to condition those signals for use with the drivers.

    The USB serves at the actual controller, sending the pulse trains, but the computer sends simple human readable instructions to the USB controller to tell the controller how to send pulses.

    The non-technical differences that may serve as the most important information to you is that the parallel configurations allow for a wider variety of industry standard software that can be used to control the cnc machine. The USB that we offer requires the operator to use a software called Planet-CNC software which is a very well made and feature full cnc control software.

  • What size breaker is required for the 2.2kw 220v vfd ?

    Since a 220V 2.2kW, or 2200W spindle will consume 9 to 10 amps at full torque:

    2200W/220V = 10A
    2200W/240V = 9.2A

    then a 15 amp breaker would be suitable for this load.

  • What is the z-axis travel for your largest machine?

    The largest CNC machine we make at this time (12/04/2015) is the GreenBull 6'x12' model. This model has 2 options for Z-axis travel.

    The short-z option has a total Z travel of 5.75 inches. From that you would subtract the length of the end mill used and the thickness of the spoil board to determine the maximum material thickness. (Example: If the end mill extends 1.25" from the collet and the spoil board is .75", then the material could be up to 5.75 - 1.25 - 0.75 = 3.75 inches in thickness). This is good for most sheet-type materials.

    The long-z option, used mainly for large 3D carvings, requires a custom frame and allows for up to 36" of travel.

  • What is the relay coil on the USB motion card for?

    A 24V connection to the USB motion card is only needed if you are using limit switches (inputs), powering the spindle/VFD speed and direction, and for the outputs, for powering other devices (mist, coolant, etc.).

    If you are using a VFD (Variable Frequency Drive, also called Inverter) for a spindle, they typically have a 24V out terminal that can be used with our USB motion card. If you are not using a spindle/VFD (we highly recommend one), then you will need to purchase a 24v power supply to power that side of the board.

    The outputs mentioned above are to connect to external devices and will require a relay (a mechanical switch that is controlled by a digital signal). This mechanical switch can turn on a device like coolant and mist, or even a router, if you are using one. A relay is required to turn on these devices because the devices are typically higher voltage, like mains (110v or 220v). So, a relay can turn on or off a high voltage device with a lower voltage (24v) signal.

  • What is each axis' resolution for the blueChick in mm or µm?

    The resolution for any of our machines is based on the driver microsetting setting and the machanical parts used for each axis.

    For example:
    The blueChick uses 9 tooth drive sprockets for the x and y axes.
    To determine resolution use this formula:
    Resolution = steps / inch or the travel in steps for one revolution of the drive sprocket
    Steps = (motor steps) * (driver microsteps) or natural motor steps * microstepping setting on the driver
    Inches = t(ooth coun)t *( tooth pitch) or the number of teeth for the drive sprocket

    Resolution = ((motor steps) * (microsteps)) / (teeth * pitch)
    In this example, the microsteps is 16 and the pitch is .25 inches
    = (200 * 16) / (9 * .25")
    = 3200 / 2.25"
    = 1422.222 steps per inch

    For the z axis of the blueChick, the resolution is typically based on 4 micro steps and the travel for one turn of the motor is 1/2". Therefore:
    Resolution = (200 * 4) / .5"
    = 800 / .5"
    = 1600 steps per inch
