Re: Centroid Operator Control Panel Interface Board: USB-BOB

Personally I would test with a different 5VDC source than the BOB to see what the current draw is and see if it is within the parameters in the manual. You don't want to release the ozone or smoke from BOB.

Re: OPCON and USB-BOB

There are lots of joysticks for two axis moving, like in any RC control, or here is an example of a profile measuring machine in my job. But these are analogue, more throw, more speed, or in RC controls more travel speed depending on what is controlled. Uwe Uwe, I already asked about analog joystic...

Re: Centroid Operator Control Panel Interface Board: USB-BOB

By the schematic you have provided, they say to connect LED to source voltage. You could always add in a low value resistor - maybe 100 ohms in series.

Re: Can Clearpath SDSK & Hybrid Steppers be connected to C86ACCP ?

I'm mot sure if the 100 ohm resistors for enable, & step and direction signals are required on the Acornsix for the Clearpath steppers which are required on the Acorn. I I used a small breadboard I had lying around to mount the resistors to just to make the install a little easier. My experience...

Re: USB Switch

If you have an older desktop PC around you can try TrueNAS, it's free and works great as a shared network storage solution. Problem I found with off the shelf NAS is support after production ends. After two NAS systems which weren't able to be supported to my satisfaction after production ended, I s...
