    Thumbs up STEPPER CONFIGURATION QUESTIONS.

    Picked up a CNC Mill. It's a Grizzly G0704 conversion. I switched out the board on it because it had the smooth stepper setup for Mach 3.

    I have a C41 Variable Speed Control board, and Kelling KL-5056D controllers for X, Y, and Z.

    I switched out to a CNC4PC C10 board and got rid of the smoothstepper because I would rather have LinuxCNC.

    Here's what I've got wired on the C10:
    ___________________________________________________________________________________
    17 UNUSED
    GND UNUSED


    16 "DIR", C41
    14 "PWM", C41
    GND "GND", C41
    (16/14/GND ABOVE TO INPUT ON C41 BOARD)


    1 UNUSED
    2 "DIR-", X CONT KL-5056D
    COM UNUSED
    3 "PUL-", X CONT KL-5056D
    4 "DIR-", Y CONT KL-5056D
    COM UNUSED
    5 "PUL-", Y CONT KL-5056D
    6 "DIR-", Z CONT KL-5056D
    COM UNUSED
    7 "PUL-", Z CONT KL-5056D
    8 UNUSED
    COM UNUSED
    9 UNUSED


    10 "BLACK" ON E-STOP
    5VOLT "RED" ON E-STOP


    11 "GND", C41
    5VOLT "5 VOLT", C41
    (11, 5 VOLT ABOVE TO POWER ON C41 BOARD)



    12 "#2 ON DB9 CONNECTOR"- RED ON X LIMIT SWITCH AT MILL
    5VOLT "#5 ON DB9 CONNECTOR"
    13 "#3 ON DB9 CONNECTOR"- RED ON Y LIMIT SWITCH AT MILL
    5VOLT "#1 ON DB9 CONNECTOR"- BLACK X/Y/Z ON LIMIT SWITCHES
    15 "#4 ON DB9 CONNECTOR"- RED ON Z LIMIT SWITCH AT MILL


    5VOLT "RED", ALL + ON CONT KL-5056D'S
    EN UNUSED

    5VOLT "RED", 5 VOLT A/C POWER
    GND "BLACK", GND A/C POWER
    (ABOVE 5 VOLT/GND FROM A/C POWER ADAPTER)


    ***PIN 6 ON DB9 TO GROUND ON PWM BOARD***(AT THE MILL THIS GOES TO A SMALL TERMINAL IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT OF THE ELECTRICAL BOARD FOR THE MILL. THERE'S A SMALL "F-" NEXT TO THIS TERMINAL?***

    ***PIN 7 ON DB9 TO NORMALLY OPEN ON RELAY 2 OF PWM***(AT THE MILL THIS GOES TO THE TRANSFORMER INSIDE THE ELECTRICAL BOX ON THE MILL!!)***

    _________________________________________________________________________________________

    So I need to know is this wiring setup should work ok?

    And if so, I need to go through the step config wizard.

    I've figured out that my driver timing settings are:

    Step Time- 1200NS
    Step Space- 1200NS
    Direction Hold- 5000NS
    Direction Setup- 5000NS

    I'm assuming that I would select single paralell port with this?

    When I go to the PARA PORT 1 SETUP it automatically assigns "ESTOP OUT" to Pin1. Should I move the wire from Pin 10 to Pin 1 for this?

    I'm new to all of this, so I apologize for the stupid questions. I just want to get this mill working finally. I'm comfortable with the operation side of this thing, but the wiring and hardware side is a bit of a loss to me.

    93 Views and no opinions on this? Did I stump everyone?

    Dont apologise for asking, we've all been in your position, I want your mill to run too. haha.

    The wiring looks okay to me. Use Stepconf to assign your pins and you should be off to a running start. Give it a shot, and report back here with what issues present themselves. Ill help if I can.
