    Been there, done that a long time ago and it didn't work for me. You will need 1Nm (minimum) motors with low inductance ( 2-2.5 mH) and good screws with a pitch of approx. 3mm/turn.
    Lucas thank you for reply.
    I have manage to run X axis motor motors with chinese driver (3 axis blue one - ebay) with M8 on 800 mm/min, but Y was stacking and crying from begining. For Z I was satesfied with 400 mm/min. I have try to connect X to Y output, and Y to X output. Then something was burned inside driver. When I connect everything back, and jog X to lets say right, it starts to go right, then left, then stop, then right... (like dir impulse was messed up).

    I will try to find screws with bigger pitch. And buy a decent driver. If motors will be to week, then I will replace them also (I realy want this cnc to get working ).
    Here in Croatia I am very limited with material and tool choice. I was forced to invent moving parts design. You need to see z axis concept.. But at the end of the day it works. Mistake, it was working.
    Please, can you advice me some good 3 axis mid range driver which will work with this motors and suitable power supply for it.

    P.S.
    I tried to get some work with old setup (chinese driver, this motors and M8 screws; router is Makita RT0700c) in mahogany. I was building 3d (side by side) wooden handle for my speargun. And I was very pleased with result but it took almost 3 hours to get finished (at 400 mm/minute). And I was milling 5 mm in pass.

    Once again thank you so much.

    Spec says that this motor inductance is 2,3mH but holding torque 4,300g-cm (59.684 oz-in or 0.421658 Nm).

    Lucas, you said that two of the microstepping columns need to be swapped, but you didn't say what the correct order should be... please clarify.

    Also, you were observant and alerted us (in THIS post) to the fact there is a conflict in regards to the DIP Switch table on the plastic cover of the product, and the DIP Switch table on the web site. Clearly neither is completely correct, but which illustration has the DIP Switch for setting the current in the correct place?

    Does the Chinese schematic you posted seem to be correct?

    Thank you very much for your work,

    Sorry for the late reply, have been absent for a while.

    The drive cover is almost correct but the column under SW4 should be under SW5 and vice versa.
    The drive documentation on the CD and Ebay pages is completely wrong.

    But once again: DON'T BUY THESE !!!!!!!!!!!!
    You will only get 30% of the potential power out of it.

    I reverse engineered and made the schematic, I think it's correct, there is some circuitry for wich I don't have a clue for what it's supposed to do.

    NOTE TO ADMIN: this is the second post to this forum. The first post was almost identical, but it never appeared in the thread...

    Lucas, you said that "2 columns need to be swapped" but you didn't say how they should be swapped to read correctly. Please advise.

    Best,

    OK, thanks for your information!

    So if I have it right, the drive really is a piece of crap, AND the dust cover diagram and the web diagram should read like the image I have attached, right?

    It's kind of a shame. The Toshiba chips are really pretty good for what they are, but they get built into these poorly designed products and they almost inevitably fail.

    My little company produces a product involving remote controlled cameras, and we have used - literally - thousands of the TB6560's in the SIP package in the past 4 years and have never had one go bad.

    Then again, out product is designed with significant voltage and current margins, the outputs are well protected from transients, the chips are mechanically supported on a substantial heat-sink, and the power supply does not abuse them on start-up and shut-down.

    A little bit of engineering makes all the difference.

    Someone kindly explain the connections of this driver board to a LPT breakout board

    thank you

    If the driver board that you have is like this one:

    NEW Product 4 5A TB6600 Stepper Motor Driver Board | eBay

    Then the input terminals of the driver are marked like this:

    DIR-, DIR+, CP-, CP+, EN-, EN+

    Which means that you would interface the driver to a breakout board the same way that you would interface drivers such as the KL-4030 according to the diagram shown here:

    http://www.automationtechnologiesinc...030WithC10.pdf

    and described here:

    http://www.automationtechnologiesinc...load.php?id=41

    (where PUL- is the same as CP-, and PUL+ is the same as CP+)

    Hi ALL!
    I'm a newby in CNC matters but with electronic experience. Is there any experience available with stepper driver mentioned above? I am willing to correct some items like mounting or changing some components or regarding swapped colums.

    BTW: I found no final conclusion regarding Ratm or and Hyou being discusse din another thread.

    I own a full functoning mill (X,Y,Z) - -mechanics only - and search for a set of 3 drivers in lower price area. TB6600 seems to be suitable for my motors. I figure to control drivers via Arduino / GRBL.

    My obesrvations from pics posted:
    - Compared to those blue 3/4 Channes Chineese boards tho driver above uses 6N137 optos being capable of transfering 10 MBit/s - that shall suffice :-).
    - Theree is a third slow opto PC817. Seems they red data sheets and found reasonable conclusions :-)
    - Those current resistors seem to own a parasitic inductance.
    - Diodes are FR30? - can anybody confirm to be FR307 fast recovery ones?

    Hint regarding parasitic diodes at output of driver FETs:
    I red different discussions about their contribution to heat and loss. This is not the major item! Those internal diodes are quite slow, much slower than some inductive reactions of motors. (Some special , few makes of descrete FETs try to get them faster but not at driver ICs) The result could be that internal TB6600 FETs get high voltage spikes at source pin, while that lazy parasitic diode still did not decide to conduct current - but they are supposed to. I do not know how axactly those drivers will be controlled but the issue above might hold in case of decelleration. Therefore faster diodes are added externally for safety reasons. Now the question is: What type of diodes did our Chineese friends use at driver above?
    I have a defective board out of the mill using FR307 diodes: 1000V / 3A fast recovery 500ns

    New TB6600 driver board found along full documentation:
    http://reprap.org/wiki/PiBot_TB6600_Stepper_Driver
    http://reprap.org/mediawiki/images/0...Driver_sch.pdf
    PiBot_stepper_driver_board
    http://reprap.org/mediawiki/images/7...rDriverPCB.pdf
    They violated 1mA outputs as well but some few mA only.
    Are some comments on this product?
    Thanks John
