To add to my confusion....
G203V TERMINAL WIRING
The G203V uses a 2-piece modular main connector. The connector is split in two pieces; terminals 1 through 6 (power supply and motor leads) and terminals 7 through 12 (control interface). Each can be removed separately by pulling the connector body upwards and off of the mating header pins on the G203V. The connectors must initially be removed to mount the G203V to a heatsink or chassis.
TERMINAL 1 Power Ground
Connect the negative (black) lead of your power supply to this terminal.
TERMINAL 2 Power (+)
Connect the positive (red) lead of your power supply to this terminal. It must be between +18VDC to +80VDC.
TERMINAL 3 Motor Phase A
Connect one end of your “Phase A” motor winding here.
TERMINAL 4 Motor Phase /A
Connect the other end of your “Phase A” motor winding here.
TERMINAL 5 Motor Phase B
Connect one end of your “Phase B” motor winding here.
TERMINAL 6 Motor Phase /B
Connect the other end of your “Phase B” motor winding here.
TERMINAL 7 Disable
This terminal will force the winding currents to zero when tied to the step and direction controller +5V.
TERMINAL 8 Direction
Connect the DIRECTION signal to this terminal.
TERMINAL 9 Step
Connect the STEP signal to this terminal.
TERMINAL 10 Common
Connect the controller’s GROUND to this terminal.
TERMINAL 11 Current Set
Connect one end of your current set resistor to this terminal.
TERMINAL 12 Current Set
Connect the other end of your current set resistor to this terminal.
This means the TERMINAL 10 COMMON really is COMMON a Ground
.... not a five volts....
and it also states:
The G203V is also available in a G203V-CW/CCW version. This means that rather than taking a step and direction input it takes a CW and CCW input on the step and direction terminals.
This is only necessary if your machine outputs CW/CCW signals as opposed to step and direction.
A comment about your last post, yes, the old orginal BOB that I bought from buildyourcnc
was step and direction; however, it lost direction for all 2 axis the second
that I used a touch probe.
I have purchased http://www.thecncwoodworker.com/2010.html
and it is my
hopes to have success with Ger 2010 screenset... it is the best thing since sliced bread
as far as I am concerned... however, I doubt that I'll ever get this thing up and running.
