Zax says to try 0.3 VDC (X) and 0.6 VDC (2Y) for the motor drivers. Also turn everything off and make sure the gantry moves freely.
well it could be a couple things. First switch the wire from the x with the wire from the y. This will tell you if there is a break in the wire. Then if that still does nothing plug the y stepper driver into the x motor. This will tell you if the controller is malfunctioning. If the motor jogs using the y control then your motor is fine and move on to the stepper driver (the red controller on the board). First check the voltage of the controller. I'll post a photo. If it is low turn the philips screw (pot) to the right 1/8 of a turn until you have proper voltage. If you are getting no voltage even after turning it up, you need a new stepper driver.
It looks like the description is still needed on a few parts. The first one that stands out is the EL01 laser has no description and the A3 pro. What the heck is the EleksLaser A3X!!!! I want to know!!! Im curios. It is mentioned on the video site.
can you post a picture of your laser? You can run some lasers with the 2 pin. It uses pulse width modulation to control power. If it has a 3 pin setup, that is usually a ttl drive laser which has better power control. If it has both, it is best to run it off of the 3 pin. This is not specific to what you have because I wont know what you have till you post a link or the photos of the actual parts. Hope that helps a bit.
FYI I just looked at the listing on banngood again and it says the ttl input is 5volt. Or you can use pwm. That is the two pin control. Just +/- 12volt. Pulse width modulation pulses the laser to give you lower powers but isnt as precise as a 5volt ttl controller. Oh and I wouldnt hold your breath on eleksmaker giving wiring advice on a product that isnt theirs.... that would probably incur a level of liability that they dont need. But seeing as how I dont have any money to my name, I am more than happy to help you burn your house down.
the three pin set up is a standard (or at least new standard) way of controlling a laser. 12 volt (+), a ground, and a ttl input. The ttl input tells the laser how much power to use. Whole, half, some percentage, etc. This ttl input is controled by the mosfet on the control board. I believe they are a 5volt max on the ttl but... you know how standards are... anyone can deviate from them if they choose. There are also 4 pin ttl board which require 12 volt (+), ground, ttl 5 volt (+), and a second ground. Hope that helps. What kind of control board are you using?
Yup we call them drop knives but if you were searching banggood for it you wont find one. They just call them vinyl cutters
@EleksMaker-Z sadly it is very confusing using banggood because they mark everything as eleksmaker but only half is genuine.
I think this is the one he bought
