CNC Controller with a Stepper Motor and Drive
Summary of video: This video overview of MachMotion’s CNC Controller with a Stepper Kit shows how simple it is to setup, connect, and test, a CNC-controlled Stepper Kit from MachMotion.
0:07 Hello, I’m Carl from MachMotion. I’m going to show you how easy it is to set up a stepper drive in motor to the MachMotion CNC control. Right here, is what you receive in a stepper kit. Right here we have the mounting arm, the CNC control, the stepper drive, and the stepper motor.
0:34 Connect the stepper motor to the stepper drive. Now connect the stepper drive power. Now connect the CNC control cable to the stepper drive. I’m going to turn the CNC control around, and I’ve already removed the back cover. Connect the stepper drive to the control.
1:17 The MachMotion control comes standard with the ability to control 6 axes, plus spindle control and spindle feedback. Right here are the terminals to connect all your IO including limit switches and other auxiliary functions. Now, turn on the CNC control to see if we have motion. Our control comes pre-configured, so all you have to do is open up the Mach3 software.
2:00 Release the stop and press the reset button. Now, we are ready to test if we have motion. Yes, we have motion. You can also jog the keys on the keyboard. This is how simple it is to connect the stepper drive to our CNC control. Thank you. Have a great day.
