The CNC Shield v4 is made for the control of 3D printers, milling and engraving machines. This version of the shield has 1 motor driver less than its predecessor, but is more compact and has room for an Arduino Nano. This board has 3 sockets for the installation of stepper motor drivers such as the A4988. Only 2 channels per motor are required to control this motor. There is also a connection for 2 end-stop switches per motor.
Module is used where short distance wireless communication is needed. The module is used for wireless communications of less than 100 meters. The module is preferred where power consumption is issue. HM-10 MODULE is designed by BLE chip so it consumes very less power to function. So the module can be used on mobile systems. The module uses UART communication and so it can be interfaced with almost all controllers or processors.
The A4988 is a complete Microstepping Motor Driver with built-in translator for easy operation. The driver has a maximum output capacity of 35 V and ± 2 A. It can operate bipolar stepper motors in full-, half-, quarter-, eighth-, and sixteenth-step modes.
