HI,

I have produced a wiring diagram for a 4-axis stepper controller based around the G540 drive.

It should be a help to those wanting to to put their own controller together. The diagram can be found towards the bottom right of the following page.

Hopefully there aren't too many errors.

Cheers,

Peter.

Peter

Thanks for the diagram. My machine is running, however I don't have my limits or touch probe hooked up, so that's going to help me. I do have a question, maybe you can help. I have a router not a spindle, I would like to start and stop the router in Mach, which lugs on the g540 would I use? I have the relay now but don't know which number pin I would use on the drive.

Thanks

Dave

Hi Dave,

In my diagram I show 2 relays hooked up to the G540. Your relay would be hooked up as a replacement to one of those.

You need to check the coil voltage of the relay you have. The ones in my diagram are 48V coil relays so one end of the coil goes to the 48V power supply the other end to one of the 2 outputs of the G540, either pin 5 or 6.

If your relay coil has a different voltage rating then you will need an additional supply. Look at the Gecgodrive manual for the G540. It shows a diagram showing this.

You then need to use the relay contacts  to switch the power active line to your router to switch it on and off.

Does this all make sense or do you need more clarification?

Cheers,


Peter.

Thanks Peter

Thanks for the information. After studying the diagram I realized that you had those relays. I'm going to try that today. My relay is 3- 48 volts so it should be ok.

Hi Dave,

I revised the diagram and added an IEC connector to one of the relay outputs, so you may want to download the Rev2

Cheers,

Peter.

Hi,

I've updated the schematic to V3. It now is split into 2 pages. The first contains what is in the Controller. The 2nd contains external bits and pieces.

I've added a cooling fan (Gecko Chiller) to the diagram as well.

The schematic is still in the same spot at;

Tomorrow I'm off for the Annual family camping trip at Port Fairy for 2 weeks. It's on the Western Coast of Victoria.


Cheers,


Peter.

Hi ,

Just a quick note to let you know that version 5 of the schematic is now online. It now includes the freewheel diodes for the relays, a star connected earth and a few other improvements.

The schematic can be found towards the bottom of the following page.
