Re: How to connect existing power supply w/PSM

The 4 wires are actually 2 pairs. If you run an avometer across them you will get the pairings. What colours are your wires from the stepper motor? I read the post on the power supply, Thanks... It answered my question. Looks like you converted the identical machine I have so I have to ask... Are y...

Re: Buying a K40 - Looking For Tips/Tricks/Suggestions

Hopefully the fan will help and keep it operating, it looks different than the other PS units I saw posted so who knows, maybe they upgraded the CAPs already... I w...

The 4 wires are actually 2 pairs. If you run an avometer across them you will get the pairings. What colours are your wires from the stepper motor?

Most notable features were preignition support for large wattage glass tubes and most exiting is greyscale engraving!

Re: How to connect existing power supply w/PSM

For now, just leave the "K-" alone. I believe that it is just a common ground. If I were you, I won't use the LPSU +5V to power the current meter because most of those are sharing ground and it could cause a big 'feedback' problem. Current meter need "isolated ground" in order t...
