This is my first post. I am in the process of making a CNC plasma cutter. My basic setup is a a CNC4PC breakout board, 3 Axis motor driver and 3 stepper motors. I use EMC2 for the controller. I had all of the motors working great for quite awhile. I then added connectors to my cables for the motors and moved the machine to a new location.
When I turned the system back on, after a few minutes I heard pop noise. There was no smoke anywhere. I then noticed that the driver board was not working. I unhooked everything except the 24VDC and still nothing. When I turn the system on, the red LED turns on for a second and then off.
There seems to be a short across the 24VDC.
Anybody have any idea how I would go about fixing this. I sent an email to Xylotex, but wanted to see if anyone here had any experience. I also am concerned because I have no idea what is wrong. I checked the motor wires and they all seem to be fine.
