Hooking a router to the SO3 controller board 2.4D

Post by Patrick2by4 » Thu May 18, 2017 2:15 am

Hello Folks,
I have a bit of a dilemma...I want to have the controller board turn on my router and shut it off after the job finishes. I know that you enter M03 and M05 to turn on the router in Gcode but I am not sure which pins on the controller board sends the signal to the relay to turn on the power to the router... here is a link to the photo of the controller board https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =3&theater
Appreciate if someone could chime in on this...Thanx

We have a page on the wiki on this: https://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Spindle_Control

which has a link to: http://community.carbide3d.com/t/can-yo ... de/3079/16 --- example from the Carbide 3D forums which shows an annotated image of the board and wiring details.

Please note that there are several different board revisions --- unless yours is electronically identical to the one from the plan you are following, please check in with support@carbide3d.com before doing anything --- we can have an EE consult with you on this. Please provide your specific board revision and any links/documentation for the relay you're planning on wiring in.

Thank WillAdams, I sent a email to support. By the way, I have the Carbide Motion v2.4d controller board on my shapeoko 3 xxl. I noticed that there were some notation on the top right hand corner of the board that has a pwm, grd, d13 and 5V label over some contact holes in the board. I was wondering if those are the pins. I was planning to hook up my router to a IoT relay board from amazon (arduino to 120v 12amp relay).
