Hey guys and gals,
Ive had my X-carve for about a year now and everything up to this point has been pretty much smooth sailing thanks to helpful videos, support staff, and this community!! So just a shout out to all y’all! You guys are great!! thanks.
So, my first real x-carve issue is upon me. Through moving the machine around while power is off, without thinking about it or otherwise, I unknowingly generated a high enough reverse current to fry my GRBL controller board!! Ooops. The team at Inventables sent me a new one free of charge, which was totally awesome, and I’m going to be installing it today.
I don’t want to break another one!! So, my question is, does anyone know of a device or diode or something like that they have used or could be used between the controller board and x,y and z motor leads to prevent current from back-feeding into the controller board if the axis’ are moved around while the machine is off?
Thanks in advance for your help!
