Step 27: Y-Axis Motor Wire Connections
This tutorial is dated, if you are considering a CNC for your personal use, we would highly recommend purchasing a kit that is very stable from our wide range of machines available
Now we come to the wire connections. To describe the bigger picture, first mechanically, the motors must turn the screw to provide linear power transmission (movement back and forth). The motor needs power to turn the motor shaft, so the motor connects to the driver board that will accept three motor connections, one for each axis. The driver board is connected to a power supply to provide power to the driver board. The computer is also connected to the driver board to provide step pulse and direction instructions.
Cable Carrier Demonstration and Modification Instructions
We started carrying these new cable carriers that contain yellow hinge pins. The construction of the cable carrier is sturdy, but still has great flexibility. With this sturdiness comes the non-intuitive method of modifying the cable carrier. How is it possible to remove links, or put two cable carriers together? Also, how many wires, cables and tubes fit within the cable carriers.
