I need some more help with wiring. Sorry to say I am not very good at reading wiring schematic's. Do I need more than a four wire cable to go between the Masso and my stepper drivers? Does anyone know how to set the dip switches on my stepper drives? I have Wantai 2H microstep drivers DQ860ma, Long's stepper motprs model 34HST 9805-02B2 2A 1.8deg/step. Thanks Jim
I needed a 5v supply for the "Disable" pins on my gecko drives. My safety circuit does not go through the Masso. It goes through an industrial safety relay and I needed a 5v 'signal' that was ALWAYS available to inhibit the drives should an Estop condition arise. I ended up using the 5v on a USB port that is available on the Masso itself (which is always on). I just used an old phone charger cable and stripped the 5v+ from it. The negative comes from the Negative of the Masso power supply itself. Since this 5v is only acting as a signal and not a power source it should be okay to use as the current draw is negligible in this situation.
