CNC Cyclone PCB Factory: probe and relay – Part 4

Spread the love

To have a perfect result you need probe helper to get autolevel data and mill with high precision, but pay attention noise can block your process. To work with high voltage you must add a relay for activation of rotary tool.

Electronic: probe

Connect probe to SDA and GRD (SDA is A5 pin).

Connection schema probe helper breadboard

To prevent noise It’s important to add a filter that prevent unwonted touch, here a simple schema.

I create It with a simple prefored board.

Probe service board

I think can be usefully add a switch to wire from probe alligato clip, so you can prevent unwanted touch.

Electronic: realy for rotary tool

As described I’m going to use high voltage rotary tool (Dremel like), to do so I use a relay module.

Connection schema rotary tool

As you can see It’s better to activate relay by using a transistor, because relay want a lot of power and If you can try to power all with Arduino you can get some error and alarm, if you use a transistor you can add a led to notifiy the splindle activation without problem.

For the transistor service board I use a simple 2n2222a and a 1k resistor.

In the next part I show how connect buttons to control milling process and bluetooth for wireless connection of the CNC.
