Thread: Comparing motion controllers...
To answer your last point,
When you set up your stepper drives system, you should set the drivers to microstep. That will make them run smoother and also allow you to have better resolution of angle. 10-16 microsteps is good depending on what resolutions you really want.www.emvioeng.com
Stocking more goodies than just Smoothsteppers
The Following User Says Thank You to njhussey For This Useful Post:
Yes, its all in one.
I chose Pokeys for my big machine and have done still some test runs so can not speak much for the moment. The only obvious lack of something is the metal enclosure. Not that this should concern you . All else i see it better than 4 axis CSMIO. Especially as possibilities for upgrade later.
Bumping steppers at end stops is ok also and perfectly acceptable for non production machine.
What is not acceptable for me is their stubbornness and as i am also stubborn, i would not buy,endorse or recommend their board especially when there are cheaper and according to me better possibilities on the market.
When i looked at stepper motors i found motors with different step angles.
0.9° - 400 steps/revolution
1,8° - 200 steps/revolution
Im thinking that if i choose the one with the higher resolution Everything will be better...?
Allthough ive got a feeling its not that simple...
So, to get back on track... There´s either the IP-M or the PoKeys57CNC right now.
Jazz had me pretty convinced about the IP-M until i read Boyans comments about the PoKeys57CNC...
