Ethernet smooth stepper problems
« on: September 07, 2014, 07:05:06 AM »
Hi

I have a 5 vDC supplying the board. I assume I have the + and - DC voltage correct. At this time I do Not see any LED so I`m not certain the board has power. I did the network adapter configuration but since I`m getting no feed back I have no idea what is wrong. I setup mach3 with the plugin. During Mach3 setup I get this error: The wakeup client board does not rely. Also, even after setting up the network adapter the connection shows a red X. No idea where to start the troubleshooting process.

Regards Barry

Hi Barry,
I would confirm 5 volt with a multimeter.

Hi
I checked it with a meter and I get 5vdc. Could I have the polarity reversed.
If so did I burn out the controller.  Facing the controller with the power connection
up I have the + on the left and - on the right. With the red probe on the + and the
black on the right I see 5vdc. I don`t see a minus sign so I assume the polarity is
correct.

The polarity of the connections are printed on the board. If you are facing the connector the - is on the left. If you revered it the board is probably still OK, just rewire it correctly.
Happy machining , Jeff Birt

That great. I changed the wires and I`m all set.
