what electronics do I need?

Postby zachjowi » Sun Jun 30, 2013 10:28 pm

I am going to build an enlarged 2.x laser and want to have a rotary also. I am looking at getting the light object AWC608 Commercial DSP, unless there is something better to use. I know that I need 3 NEMA 17 200 s/r for the machine and 1 NEMA 17 400s/r. I also know that I need to have a 80watt PSU for the 80watt tube. What else do I need for electronics and wiring? I would go off the top level shopping list but since I am using the DSP and things have changed sinc eht original 2.x I would like to get a new list.

For basic motion, you'll also need 3 stepper drivers and a 24v power supply. The drivers can be as simple as Pololu drivers on a driver board or one of the Chinese TB6*** boards.

You'll also need some other sundries, off the top of my head there's microswitches, e-stop, water pump and air assist pump with relays
