MKS Stepper Breakout + Cable

This MKS CD V1.0 stepper driver breakout board is used when stand alone stepper driver is used with a board which is design for small stepper drivers (A4988 & DRV8825). So if you have a RAMPS 1.4 board and need to drive a stand alone stepper driver (like the TB6600), then this board will give you easy access to the signals needed for the stand alone stepper driver.
In current 42 motor-driver of 3D printers on the market, is that the direct primary IC connect to motor driver IC, the current consumed by each interface will not exceed 2mA.
Generally, what 57/86 stepper driver inputs, is the optical coupling isolation, mainly to prevent from interference. Each motor driver has 3 inputs.

  • EN enable port controls motor switch.
  • PUL pulse port controls the movement of the motor position or speed
  • DIR direction interface controls movement direction of the motor.
The driver current of general optical coupling interfaces is around 10mA, one driver actuates one motor. One driver consumes most of 30mA control current, after X, Y, Z, E connect to four general 57/86 motor driver that will need 100mA current at work . It is easy to burn the 3D printer IC control board if build connection directly but not for enlarged current.
NOTE: MKS CD expansion board can adjust the flow control signal, to avoid motor drive with optical isolation generate press on main IC, therefore, Ramps1.4, MKS Gen and other main board with five large motor drive can operate completely without pressure
