A built and tested controller unit comprising of the PCB, PIC, Component Kit, LCD along with connectors, heat-sink and mounting hardware.
Sockets consist of 0.1" pitch screw connectors for power, stepper and limit connections. A 8 pin SIL is provided which either the keypad on this page or the recommended membrane keypad will plug directly onto.
The LCD is attached to the PCB using spacers and screws. They connect using a plug and socket and so can be separated. The 'module' is intended to be fastened directly to the front panel using the provided screws although suitable spacers will need to be sourced depending on panel thickness.
To make a complete controller you'll also need a suitable driver (for your stepper motor). Power supply, case, keypad and any hardware (plugs, sockets, screws etc).
Note: I make these by hand to order so please allow a few extra days from ordering.
Keypad is made up from PCB and 16 tactile push buttons.
The size is aprox 90mm x 90mm and the buttons are space 0.8" apart. Mounting holes for M3 screws are provided.
To use the front panel must be drilled with 12mm diameter holes on 0.8 inch spacing, the board is then mounted on spacers such that the buttons are flush to the top panel.
A suitable overlay can be glued to the top to give a professional appearance. (The overlay can be made by printing onto thin high quality paper and laminating. This is then attached to the front panel with either double sided tape or glue).
A short connecting cable (100mm) is provided which plugs into the keypad and SIL socket on the divider module.
