  Hood, Chip, Comet,

After a little surfing on some other forums I found this info. This helps to clear up my e-stop questions. :D

Cutting the power between the capacitor and the Gecko stepper controllers was something that I
suggested a little while ago; however, it is NOT a good idea. Although it would immediately stop the
stepper motors, it would also cause extremely high currents to flow through the Gecko (several hundred
amps). Doing that repeatedly would destroy the Gecko stepper controllers. >:(
 

Mariss suggest cutting the power to the break-out board or opening the circuit that
provides step pulses to the Gecko. Opening the circuit that provides step pulses would require having a
contactor or other circuitry with at least four circuits.
Thanks Guys.

heres a pic of the heat sink I have my drives mounted on.
Its 4" wide  x  16" long  with 3- 12v fans.   I believe in keeping electronics cool. ;D
theres a total of 7 fans in my enclosure. this includes the ones in the power supplys.
Hope it all works. MORE LATER.   Questions ,  that is. ???
