Controller and Stepper Motors

Posted: 2011/01/23 in Uncategorized

I got the cables from the stepper motors to the controller done.

Here’s a picture of the stepper motor cables connected to the controller.  The cable will need to be longer once installed on the mill, but this is good for testing the system without the mill.

The next step will be to install the accessory connectors (for limit switches, etc…).  I plan to use RJ45 receptacles and pre-made 10BT ethernet cables for those as they carry very little power.

Then I’ll be able to create a cover for the enclosure.
