Hey everyone,
For my highschool graduation project I am building Joe's 4x4 Hybrid CNC. I purchased the 3 Axis 4030 Controller last year but the machine requires 4 Axes. I recently purchased an extra 4030 Driver.

I was wondering if there are any problems with me adding an extra 4030 Driver to the controller? Can the PSU support it?

Also, how would I go about wiring it and what gauge wire should I use?

I'll post pictures soon of the current wiring and a wiring diagram and maybe someone can help me add the fourth driver.
Thanks,
-Spencer

Thanks for the reply,

(3) of the motors are the KL23H286-20-8B which are (Rated Current: 2.8A, Rated Voltage: 4.17V (in Bipolar Parallel))

and

(1) of the HobbyCNC 200OZ-IN, 3VDC, 3A motor (23-200-DS8)

Is it okay to mix motors like this?

Also, where can I get one more of those Quick-Connect panel-mount motor connectors?
