Thread: 4x4 cnc router
Thank you irving2008
my steel cabinet arrived today...looks very good! will post picture in a few days, Also i was wondering about how to connect the stepper motors to the drivers. I was wanting to use some sort of plug (din) to house on the out side of the controller unit ? but i cant seem to find any what would be up to the job of the amount of power that would travel thought these they all seem to be audio!
any suggestions ?
oh in line fuses here, set resistors...work can now start
Here's the eBay item number to the connectors I used, excellent quality and had good service from the seller
thanks, Would these be suitable ? ebay item no...220419398372
i like how these look :naughty:
Here's another option for you -
I used these on my machine and they are pretty good quality.
They sell cable and also potting box's for terminating the wires on the side of the stepper, looks very neat when done. Yet another idea I stole from John S!

Looking on the Neutrik website the five pin plug, the contacts are rated at 7.5A which is fine.
One disadvantage with these connectors is you will need to mount them so that they cannot be knocked and become accidently unplugged while in use as this may damage the related drive.
Please if you have time a little help on the wiring of the motors for Bipolar Parallel, Had a look at the drawings with no hope! i would really appreciate some help. I have all the parts i need now fuses, wire ,connectors etc.i will have a go over the weekend :heehee:
