Thread: Driver wiring advice needed...
Sorry to resurrect an old topic - I've been working away from home for a while and am just catching up a bit with bits and pieces of the build. Since my last post, I've come across some instructions for the drivers I'm using, but they're in German - although I think it's probably fairly straightforward to decipher the diagrams if you know what you're looking at.
I've attached a couple of images - one is of the German instructions and the other of the LinuxCNC Stepper Mill config window - the bit I'm concerned with is the "Driver Timing Settings" section.
I'm led to believe that the German instructions pertain to the "Driver Timing Settings" and this is how the text translates:
Schrittimpuls = Step Pulse
Richtungssignal = Direction Signal
Freigabesignal = Enable Signal
My motors work with the default settings - indeed, they work with a load of different settings, but since this info comes from a German manual distributed by a vendor, it's probably more likely to be correct, rather than me mashing in a load of numbers...
So, based on the diagrams, am I correct in thinking that:
Step Time = 1000
Step Space = 2500
Direction Hold = 2500
Direction Setup = 1000
Wal I think you will find if you just use 5000 in each of the boxes it will be fine ...Clive
Cheers guys - thanks (as ever) for the info!
Thanks for posting this wal.
I bought 6 of the same drives recently and received two of those bobs in with em.
Almost a year on hows the bob doing?i dismissed using them after reading a bit of neg feedback but im about to try and wire up my mill so i might give them ago,

No problems at all from the drivers or the BOB - the only time I've had a missed step (on one axis) is when I think I may have been feeding too high and spinning too slow on a heavier than usual cut. Other than that everything's worked well with no problems at all. I think Jonathan's used this gear in the past, as has Clive S - both have no doubt moved on to more advanced kit, but for my purposes this gear works well.
