Re: Updated DMM DYN2 and DYN4 to Acorn Hookup schematics.

I see it calls for a 5V customer supplied 1 amp power supply. Is 1 amp enough for three DYN4 drives. Thanks

Centroid missed out...

Was at the Cabin Fever Expo in Lebanon, PA today. Was surprised to see Tromach, PMDX, and Artsoft there and no Centroid. There was about 3000 people there, and most were home machinists.

DMM Servos and DYN 4 drives have arrived

The DMM servos have arrived, was looking at Martys video he is doing a router. I see he is waiting for the wiring for the DYN4 drives, is the wiring on here not correct?
Got 1.5KW servos for a Bridgeport clone mill. Hope there strong enough.

Re: End to Acorn Introductory Pricing date is January 3rd 2018

I look at it this way, they sold in the month of December 190 Acorn boards. A fair amount being new to the DYI world. I have a Chinese friend from Long Island who has a plant in China. Was at a party over Christmas and discussing the knock off world of Chinese manufacturing. We talked about software...

Re: m code for the spindle brake and release?

The brake you talk about is on the head to slow down the spindle?
I will be doing a bridgeport clone a Millport Knee mill. It has the air control for the brake on the spindle. I am just going to remove it and install an external brake from on the VFD and make it simple.
