I learned a nice thing about Arduino CNC shield today. I have a project coming up where I need 3 axes. On each axis, there will be 2 motors (cloned, running in sync). That means I need a total of 6 motors and drives, but CNC shield only supports 4 drives (axes). So I needed
A quick post about wiring TB6600 stepper driver which is based on TB6600HG chip. Here I use one without black plastic casing. It has model marking on the back that says “BL-TB6600-v1.2″. Stepper motor used in this demo is 23HS22-2804S (2.8A, NEMA23). Drive looks like this and it’s rated for 4.5A. Looking for more info and photos?
A quick post about TB6600 stepper motor driver module. It should be 4.5A version. It has model marking on the back that says “BL-TB6600-v1.2”. This version has no plastic covering and has green PCB. Since originally everything is covered with large heatsink there is nothing much to see before removing it. Here I share some “closer look” photos
First-time use of H-bridge HG7881 (HG7881CP) module was pretty confusing for me. I didn’t find good (if any?) information about wiring this module up and running it with Arduino. But same time it seems to be quite popular. Here I share how I connected it to an external 12V power supply. You can use any other voltage
I bought this cheap “Chinese” volt- and ammeter gauge. This has shunt built-in so I don’t have to mess around with that. Unfortunately, I didn’t find any good resource how to wire/connect it. Actually, it’s not rocket science, but I had waited for it 2-3 weeks and didn’t want to blow it at first try.
