Wiring the power source
Power source voltage
Supply power for the electromagnetic brake. Many EM brakes use 24V, but please refer to the datasheet of your motor.
Power supply terminal
There are two types of power supply terminals: the DC barrel jack and the Euro-style terminal block. As these are connected on the PCB, DO NOT SUPPLY BOTH AT THE SAME TIME
- Outer diameter 5.5mm
- Inner diameter 2.1mm
- Center positive
Euro-style terminal block
Connecting the brake
Connect the wires from the EM brake's terminal block to the corresponding motor. Note how each terminal on the brake is numbered just like the STEP400--make sure these match in terms of wiring.
Like most EM brakes, this brake has a polarity requirement, so wire your motor as stated on the PCB.
