The board now ships with grbl 1.1f pre-installed!
motionPro is a 3+1 axis CNC controller based on a custom Arduino running the latest version of grbl. It includes TI's DRV8825 stepper motor drivers onboard and can drive upto four NEMA 23 motors at 2.2A each motor. This controller supports a separate clone axis motor channel with its own individual control chip and current setting options. This is useful for machines with 2 motors for either the X or Y axis.
You can connect the motionPro controller through a standard USB port and wireless control using an optional HC-05 or any other Bluetooth module. This eliminates the need for obsolete expensive machines with parallel ports.
Here is a complete feature list:
The complete documentation and a detailed hookup guide is available here.
I was building my own CNC and in the process realized that most DIY CNC drivers either need older machines with a parallel/printer port or need to be assembled from a variety of separate components that then need to be connected together separately. This was too messy and my machine would always stop or fail because some wire came loose or some third party component failed. This called for an integrated plug-and-play electronics that did everything and this was the result of that.
Quite a few CNC controllers on the market use older parallel/printer ports to control their CNCs. This controller uses standard USB ports and eliminates the need to buy/maintain ancient computers simply for their parallel/printer ports. This controller also features the ability to be operated wirelessly via Bluetooth.
An additional 18-24V DC power supply capable of at minimum 5A is needed along with a USB-B cable (for wired control). Get in touch for a custom expedited (but more expensive) shipping quote.
