Dixon is the recognised brand, like Hoover for vacuum cleaners.
i bought some t0 holders off ebay, but had to linish the backs to get them to slide into mine.
(retrofitted mine with mitsubishi servos)
i only have a couple of videos of it
she now moves at 6000mm/min totally accurate (as accurate as the screws anyway as i couldnt be bothered to change them)
So the bits arrived today. only the resistors and cable
changed the cable, seemed to be a bit better and the steppers ran for alot longer before the PSU cut out.
Both gecko's now running 2 amps to the steppers so thats fine.
but it still keeps tripping the bloody PSU.
So i thought i would do some testing.
i found this http://www.geckodrive.com/upload/returnedenergydump.pdf
just wondering if that could be the case?
Does anybody have an idea how to test the gecko's to make sure there not the problem?
p.s. got another laptop to try with Mach3 and EMC2, hopefully one will work :D
How do Cooliced.
Are you running this machine through laptops? I read somewhere that some laptops don't deliver a full 5v pulse to the drivers,not saying this is your problem mind...but its worth checking the 5v rail on the bob underload?
well tbh i was gonna bite the bullit and use my Main Desktop PC and run the laptop downstairs (more user friendly)
I have read that somewhere too... hmm. thanks GeorgeD
