I have 3 linear stages that are driven by Nema 08 stepper motors. I am trying to use 3 Pololu Low Current stepper motor drivers with the C10 bidirectional breakout board to control the motion using Mach3. From as far as i have understood i can connect the stepper motors connections to the Pololu board and then i would need to connect the pololu board to the c10 board.
I have a few questions regarding the wiring:
a). I would need to connect the four motor leads to A1 A2 B1 B2.
b). After this will i need to connect the Pololu drive to a power supply or will it be able to draw enough power from the C10 Bi directional breakout board - link for the board - cnc4pc.com/Store/osc/product … ucts_id=45
c). Also if i would need to connect the Pololu boards individually to a power supply, then how much voltage would i need to supply and which are the terminals on the board?
d). Also what connections would i need to take from the Pololu board to the C10 Breakout board? Will only the Step and Direction connection be enough?
Please forgive my questions, i have very little idea about this and trying to learn as much as possible.
Any inputs in this regard is greatly appreciated.
