Schematic AWC608 with Gecko G213 and HY-DIV268N-5A

Postby TimGS » Wed Sep 09, 2015 11:32 am

Attached is a copy of a schematic for my 80Watt Laser. I have upgraded the X and Y axis stepper drivers from HY-DIV268N-5As to GeckoDrive G213V. The wiring of the G213 to the AWC608 is a little unusual. The G213 does NOT include GECKODRIVE's circuit that auto routes the common/5v to the optical isolator. So you have to connect the COMMON for the STEP and DIR to the AWC608's GND. I made a cable harness that ties the GNDs to the G213s close to the AWC608 so it looks cleaner.

The G213s make the stepper motors "Sing"...Yes, they sound good!!!! :D

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
