Re: Wiring for cooling fans

cvoinescu, dumb question. How to wire fans to the grblshield? If wiring to the grblshield I do not need a converter? I am currently building a Arduino protoboard for my limit/homing switches, could I wire fans somehow on the protobd with the switches? :shock:

Re: Limit Switchs to Arduino/Shield

Thanks! I'm sure there will be many mod's. Pretty will be in order but all this stuff is in an enclosure (not bent or twisted around...). My Soldering skills are improving so I will try it.

Re: Limit Switchs to Arduino/Shield

If soldering, did you solder to the bottom of the Arduino?

Limit Switchs to Arduino/Shield

Need some advise. I have my X & Y limit switches mounted & wired ready to connect to the Arduino/Shield. I understand they connect to pins 9, 10 &11, 5v & ground.... What would be the best way to connect to the Arduino/Shield? :shock:
