Keyestudio CNC V0.9A+4988 Driver(with Heat Sink)Kit


thumb

Introduction

This kit mainly includes a keyestudio CNC V0.9A and three A4988 driver modules.
Keyestudio CNC GRBL V0.9 is a main board developed by Keyestudio for CNC, laser engraving machine, writing robots and other robots. It has complete interfaces with cost-effective and can be driven via external connection, suitable for DIY and factory use.
The A4988 is a DMOS microstepping driver with converter and overcurrent protection, which can operate a bipolar stepper motor in full, half, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 step modes, with output-driven performance up to 35 V and ± 2A. The A4988 also includes a fixed off-time current regulator that operates in slow or mixed-decay modes.

Features of A4988 Driver

  • With simple stepper and direction control interface.
  • Five different step modes: full, half, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 step modes.
  • Adjustable potentiometer used to adjust the max current output to gain higher step rate.
  • Automatic decay mode detection/selection.
  • Overheat closed circuit, under-voltage lockout, cross-current protection.
  • Ground short-circuit protection and load short-circuit protection.

Install Driver Software and Development Environment Software IDE

(1) Install Diver Software

For different operating system, there may be slight difference in installation method. Below is an example in WIN 7.
a. When you connect Keyestudio CNC GRBL V0.9 to your computer the first time, right click “Computer” —>“Properties”—> “Device manager”, you can see “USB2.0-Serial”.
thumb

b. Click “USB2.0-Serial”, select “Update Driver software”.
thumb

c. In this page, click “Browse my computer for driver software”.
thumb

d. Find the “usb_ch341_3.1.2009.06” file.
thumb

e. Click “Next”, Installation completed; Then,click “Close”.
thumb

f. After driver is installed, go to “Device manager” again. right click “Computer” —> “Properties”—> “Device manager”, you can see device as below figure shown, also the correct Com port.

(2) Install Development Environment Software IDE

a. Double click arduino-1.5.6-r2-windows to start. Select “I Agree”to accept license agreement.
thumb

b. Select components to install and click “Next”.
thumb

c. Click “Browse” and select another folder. Click “Install” to start the installation.
thumb

d. Finally, wait for a few minutes to finish.
