Adding separate 5v DC power for CNC Board

Post by lslewis901 » Thu Oct 15, 2020 9:39 pm

Hello, I have the 2.58 version of the Protoneer CNC board and was wondering if it is possible to run a separate 5vdc supply line to it? If so do you have wiring diagram for that?

Thanks,
Lindsey

Just be careful with that as the 5V is connected to the onboard RPi 5V regulator. There is a 5V pin and GND pin in the middle of the board but they are not designed to power the Rpi from it.
