CORRECTION 0:47 I mean't active low - All the GRBL controllers I have come into contact use an active low signalling, which means if the pin is receiving a voltage the pin is disabled and if that goes to 0V is it active.
CNC Control Box with VFD etc etc
I'm currently working on the CNC control box, before doing any future work on the CNC Mountain Machine. I want the controller to be future proof and as professional as I can manage. I am planning to use stepper drivers, PSU's, a motor contactor unit to turn everything on, as well as a VFD and proximity limits switches. Each video will document the process and steps involved in researching, designing, planning and assembling a controller. I am not a natural electrician so learning as I go.
