Got the motors working beautifully. I had to increase the pulse width to 15. I got them up to 600ipm which was maxed out in mach3. I guess I would have to increase the frequency to go faster. I will wait till I get them mounted.
I also rewired them the 3rd way by the schematic, parallel and set the drivers to 2.8 and 1800 micro step.
I spent the weekend redoing all the electronics and putting them in a enclosure I had from a old photo paper processor. Here are a few pictures.
I am still trying to decide if I want to try to put the hatichi x200 vfd in the enclosure. It would mean I would have to cut out a place in the door for the display and know, it is just a little too deep. Should I go to the trouble or would it cause too much em noise?
I have plugs for each motor on the side of the box using 4pin xlr connectors and a computer power supply cord for 110vac into the box.
I used a old computer switch from a AT case that was DPST to switch the whole thing on and off, but I have yet to build the front control panel and I may use a different one then.
Right now I am using a wall transformer for the 5v at 2a but I found a "http://www.amazon.com/Coolerguys-110v-Molex-Power-Adapter/dp/B000MGG6SC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1332818693&sr=8-2"]5v and 12v combo power supply on amazon that has a molex connector on it. It says it is 2a for each voltage. Best it is only $14.
I also used a Themaltake bigwater 760 for the liquid cooling for the spindle. I looked all over and for the price I could not buy all the components individually.
I am hoping to use the modbus for spindle control so I ordered a "http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005CMQOO2/ref=oh_o00_s00_i01_details"]rs232 to rs485 converter.
