|Subject: Taig CNC Mill motor leads to Geckodrive G540 Adapters Tue Mar 08, 2016 6:25 am|| |
Hi all ,
I have a customer who had a dead Microproto MicroMill 2000HD controller and decided to convert over to a Gecko G540 based controller, but wanted to use the Unipolar motors that came with the CNC Mill. Rather than chop off the existing DIN connectors and replace them with the DB9 connectors that the G540 needs, I made up a set of adapter leads.
I had done the same thing with my mill when the Gecko G540 was first released, but I needed to research and recollect all the information I used many years ago when I first made the leads.
This time I have collated the information and done a step by step guide for building the adapter cables. I did this so that next time, I'll have the information handy, but also to have it available for others that want to make their own adapter cables.
