    I'm having the exact same problem. "Spam like or inappropriate". But I can't see what it would be. Perhaps because I've never posted before?

    Hmmm. above message appears to have been approved. Forum SW still thinks I'm spamming or cussing. Here's text in an attached file.

    THIS IS A TEST OF Phil's Message


    C-Beam Machine with xPRO V3 Questions

    So I took the leap and ordered the C-Beam machine with the optional NEMA 23 steppers and xPRO V3 controller. I plan on using a 24V power supply.

    I'm a bit surprised that there is not more info on xPRO V3. I couldn't find a schematic for V3, V1 and V2 yes but not V3. Any pointers would be appreciated.

    The xPRO stepper drivers are limited to 2.5A peak but recommended much lower - 1.8A. The steppers have 2.8A max. Seems like a mismatch but the video shows what I believe is that exact configuration so clearly the xPRO doesn't burn up! Joking aside, I assume that it should work ok. I am worried about heat production so I'll use forced air cooling. Are there recommended heat sinks?

    Grounding the C-Beam machine. I am a bit surprised I haven't seen this topic discussed (though could have missed it). I'm planning on grounding the C-Beam Machine frame to earth (3rd wire on the mains). (note: this is not the same as ground on the xPRO board, that is actually 0V though often called minus on the power supplies.) This is usually a good practice for machines. I'll be running off of a GFCI outlet. Am I missing something here? Not sure if I'll false pops on the GFCI.

    Anyway, thanks for looking and maybe replying!
    Phil
