I’ve just installed the 262 oz motors and turned the current up all the way on my X-controller and it does not appear to have enough juice to drive the 262oz Steppers. I turned off the Idle Current reduction on the X and Y. I measured the Voltage and I’m getting inconsistent readings. I chose to rewire my machine so that I could take advantage of the individual Y-axis drivers.
On the X-axis I get 23-24V across red and white, 14V across Red to Green, and 10V red to black, 10 V from White to Green and 14V from White to Black.
On the y1-axis I only get 5.6 volts from Red to white, 7.5V from Red to Green, 6.5 from Red to Black, white to green is 2.7, and white to black is 2.8.
Y2-axis is different again, with white and red to green and black being under 1 volt, and red to green and black being 5V and 5.5V respectively, which 5.5V between red and white. I’ve checked my wiring everything matches up correctly. Am I missing a setting on the X-controller?
The pot for the y-axis’ appears to be working (effectively 0-5.5V) but the pot for the X-axis appears to do NOTHING. No reduction in Voltage, just flat line 24V.
Is my X-controller faulty or do I need to wire the 262 oz. NEMA 23’s differently?
