Handling and usage precautions
Warning: ALWAYS Power DOWN and switch OFF before disconnecting STEPPER MOTORS These boards go bang !
sample configuration for TB6560T3-V5 3 Axis board upload:tb6560_v5.gz also upload:TB6560.tar.gz revised and updated feb 2013 with thanks to awes includes EN and relay set for spindle no limit switches or estop required , this is a base startup configuration
any problems let me know in this forum thread and i will keep this updated with additional configurations as we come across them http://linuxcnc.org/index.php/english/component/kunena/?func=view&catid=49&id=23737
The pin configuration instructions I got with the board were incorrect. So were the ones I found on the net. My board came with a cover which showed the pin settings.
So in this case:
Pin 2 - X dir
Pin 3 - X Step
Pin 4 - Y dir
Pin 5 - Y step
Pin 6 - Z dir
Pin 7 - Z setp
I set everything else to unused. I was able to test each axis in Stepperconf and they moved as they should, but the machine wouldn't budge when I ran linuxCNC and loaded up some gcode. I went back and added
Pin 1 - Amplifier enable
and everything worked.
Change the Capatitor on the bottom it is Easy even as it is SMD there is nothing arrond there is a 1000pf on the Board change it to 150pf (SMD1206) and get so 100times more feqency (400khz)
Change all Fr304-307 Recivier to Ultrafast UF5401-5408 ones DO201 Types No matter what Diodes on your Board are, 3A Ultra Fast ones are Needet (16 cent eatch reichelt.de -> UF 5408) this will meat the internel diodes,and save the circuit,the UF Diodes are a 1000 times faster then the Fr ones. The Board will give you,with the first and the second modification, at 25k latency 10000steps per Second, SAVE without a loss,Timing same as L297. so it is almost good to invest about 5USD into the parts and some 1hr of work.
