    Hi
    I posted a question about the right way to wire a second "Y" stepper motor so they would run in sequence to each other, but I'm still waiting for a reply. No matter.

    I've now purchased a xPro Controller v3 board from Ooznest here in the UK as it simplifies the wiring of all 4 stepper motors for my OX and does away with the Arduino (One thing less to worry about)

    I'm posting this because I'd be grateful if someone could explain which way the wiring should be placed in the clone section. I'm sure its not the same way round as the other Stepper motors are wired, for me that order would be

    Red
    White
    Green
    Black

    I'm sure its straight forward, but just in case it does mess things up having them round the wrong way I'd like to start out the right way round if possible.

    Thanks a lot.

    for screws you want them to turn the same direction so the same wiring... for belts switch any two coil wires around like red white to white red.. so they run in opposite directions.. always test direction with the pulleys or couplers off

    Thanks a lot

    Not all four wires, but just two.

    Will this be enough to shove the left hand "Y" plate in the opposite direction with its counterpart.

    I had a wiring diagram of this, but can't find it anywhere.

    Thanks again.

    just one pair.. and test first with the belts off or pulleys off to make sure nothing is swapped where it shouldn't be

    Thanks guys.
    Sorry for the late reply,

    There aren't enough hours in a day one you turn 70.

    Cheers.
