Machine: K40 with stock nano board
Board: Cohesion Laserboard
I am providing a 24V 8A SMPS for motors instead of using the 24V output on the stock supply. My plan is to use the stock power supply only for lighting up the tube itself. I plan on using either (but not both at the same time) the HM Rotary, or the Z table, depending on which projects I’m running. I won’t be using the 24V 5A brick that came with the laserboard, the SMPS will replace that.
Do I actually need another stepper driver external to the laserboard for this?
I’m confused because the board already has four stepper drivers populated, and I would assume they intended all four to be used.
I don’t know what current this board supplies to the motors, or how that is adjusted. Since I’m already going in for the big rewiring, I’d like to get everything that I can taken care of in one operation.
