Wiring

Wiring the power source

Power source voltage

Supply power for the electromagnet brake. Many EM brakes are using 24V but please refer the datasheet of your motor.

Power supply terminal

There are two types of power supply terminals, DC barrel jack and Euro-style terminal block is available. As they are connected parellel on the PCB, DO NOT SUPPLY BOTH AT THE SAME TIME.

DC jack

  • Outer diameter 5.5mm
  • Inner diameter 2.1mm
  • Center plus

Euro-style terminal block

3.81mm pitch, 2pin Euro-style terminal block is used. Refer the polarity described on the PCB.

Connecting brake

Connect the wires from EM brakes to four output terminals. Since many EM brakes has polarity, connect wires according to + / - signs on the PCB,

Connecting to STEP400

Connect STEP400 with 6-pin ribbon cable.
