Getting started

Post by pSimon » Sat Jul 07, 2018 12:03 pm


I've finally got some power on my ET6 board, and I have communications.

So far so good.

I could do with some pointers on how to configure the board properly; at present, it just seems to be driving its Outputs in some sort of "test pattern". Any changes I've made to the profile don't seem to alter this, so there's obviously some element I'm missing.

Machine Outline

3-axis (later 4 or 5 axis) mill, stepper drive.

The Spindle needs Run signal an output [OUT2], and a PWM drive on [PWM1]

Inputs for Emergency stop [IN0], X/Y/Z zero limits [IN2-4] and Z probe [IN1] (not all will be populated initially)

Flood Relay on [OUT0]

(I don't need to know how to connect I/O, just how to configure the board/software.)

I presume I need to create my own profile - which would be the best starting point?
