User Guide for 3 axis TB6560 driver board

Product Features:

• Toshiba TB6560AHQ chip - High power, maximum 3.5A drive current chipset !

• 1-1/16 microstep setting - Higher accuracy and smoother operation than standard 1, 1/2 step!

• Adjustable drive current settings for each axis - 25%,50%,75%,100% of full current can be set for different stepper motors

• Overload, over-current and over-temperature safety - Full protection for your computer and peripheral equipment !

• On board current switching - Power output can be set according to specific user requirement !

• Full closed-type optical isolation to protect the user's computer and equipment

• Relay spindle interface - Outputs Max. 36V 7.5A for spindle motors or coolant pump (only one device can be powered by this output!)

• 4 channel inputs interface- Can be used for XYZ limit and emergency stop !

• Professional design - Two stage signal processing with super anti-jamming !

• Bipolar constant current chopper drive with non-resonant region - Controls motors smoothly through range without creep effect !

• Four control inputs (divided into pairs of knives) - Allows setting of limit and emergency stop !

• Universal architecture - Supports most parallel software MACH3,KCAM4,EMC2 etc!

* Important Notes:

• Power supply DC 12-36V (not included)

*Voltage Selection:

12-16V DC power supply for Nema 17 stepper motors

16-24V DC power supply for Nema 23 stepper motors

24-36V DC power supply for Nema 34 stepper motors

(High voltage will burn up the chips or stepper motors!!!)

*Ampertage Selection:

Output current of the power supply can be calculated by the following expressions:

Output current = Rated current of your stepper motors * quantity + 2A

(For example, if you want to drive 3 * 3A Nema 23 stepper motors, theoretically 24V 11A DC power supply is recommended, but higher power such as 24V 15A also will be good.

If you are not sure about the selection of power supply, please feel free to contact us for help)

• The power output of 12V shall be applied to the radiator fan of 12V

• Driver output compatible with 2 or 4 phase, 4,6 or 8 lead stepper motors, 3A max.

• Suitable for unipolar or bipolar stepper motors.

• Voltage regulated spindle speed controlled by parallel interface as function of supply voltage.

Instructions of MACH3

Fig.1

Open MACH3 software, select mach3MILL, and then click OK. Please refer to Fig.1

Fig.2

The interface of MACH3 is displayed as Fig.2. The frequently-used action buttons are listed on the interface. We can configure MACH software at first.

Fig.3

Click PORT & PIN sub-menu of config menu. Please refer to Fig.3.

Please refer to Fig.4

Fig.4

To set up the basic frequency within the above Circle 1. This parameter will affect the rotational speed of the motor. After the setup of basic frequency, select Circle 2 where Configuration Scripting will be defined, please refer to Fig.5.

Fig.5

To modify the software settings according to the definition of Parallel Interface which is detailed in the above circle.

Fig.6

Then select the output signals column, as shown in Fig.6, and set up the corresponding items per the setup described in the circle.

Fig.7

After all have been set up, open the G CODE that needs to run, as shown in Fig.7

Fig.8

Fig.9

After G CODE has been opened, you may see the red button RESET flashing. Click RESET to stop

the flashing and then press CYCLESTART at the location of Circle 2

*Simple solutions if the driver does not work properly:

• Please  double  check  the  software  settings  according  to  the  Fig.5  and  Fig.6  

• Please  conform  the  parallel  cable  has  been  pluged  tightly  

• Please  turn  off  the  power  supply  before  changing  dip  settings  

• Please  use  stable  high  quality  DC  power  supply  for  this  driver  

• Problems  in  Mach3  using,  Please  refer  to  the  Mach  3  User  Manual  

• If  problem  persist,  please  feel  free  to  contact  us!
