Gecko Drive servos

Post by lvanduyn » Thu Feb 01, 2018 11:17 pm

I use the Gecko drive 320 step and dir servo drives. I see connection diagrams for the 201 and 203 stepper drives
but nothing for the 320 or 340. Is it possible to use the 320 drives with the Acorn board ?

Larry,

Those drives have step + direction so no issue. You will need a dual voltage 24v and 5v power supply. While we don't have schematic for every drive out there (yet....) as long as they accept step + direction it should work.

Suggest you use the G201 schematic as a guide.
