    Arduino Uno running grbl V1.1 and the different ways we can wire up drivers from the Open Builds Part Store.



    One of the more common questions I get emailed is how I wire up the dq542ma drivers available from Openbuilds. In this video I go over each of the ways I have wired and run the external wantai drivers. Did I miss a method? Is one of the options shown better then the others? Feel free to let me know:D I am always up to give it a try and learn something new.

    Feel free to grab your self some extra parts with your next openbuilds order and give it a try yourself ! One of the best ways to learn / understand in my experience is to dive in and give it a go yourself :thumbsup:

    Really nice job on this tutorial video @Kyo :thumbsup:
    You really hit the nail on the head with this as we have been needing a simple explanation style video that helps Builders to understand how to connect the drivers.
    Thank you so much for taking the time to create and share this.
    @David the swarfer these are really cool! I didn't know about them, thank you for the share.

    Thanks. I am linking this in my build since people have asked me over there. I try to send them your way since you do a better job explaining it. :thumbsup:
