Using a SSR to turn router on

Using a SSR to turn router on

Postby mpol0717 » 21 Oct 2015, 19:31

Hello,
I would like to wire my router (Dewalt DW611) to turn on when I start the gcode sequence. Currently, I have to manually turn on the router then start the gcode. I have very little knowledge with electronics, but would I be able to wire my router through a solid state relay and use a output from the mk2 to turn on the router? Thanks a lot!

Output pins of controller handle 20mA, 5V. Please check SS relay input operating parameters.

I use a Opto22 SSR to turn on my dust collector and the VFD. Works fine.
Most of the SSRs have 3-24V in or 5-24V in and use about 5mA (check specs).
You can connect such a SSR directly, ideally between +5V and the driver output. The set the output polarity according to your needs.

One little problem I have is they turn on while the MK2 controller is re-flashed. Not a big deal but potentially dangerous.

Awesome! Thank you for the response. Hooking up the dust collector as well is a great idea. Ill have to give it a shot. Thanks again.

Hey, everyone.
Im thinking of buying a Velleman K8200, printing some parts for a DIY CNC router and using all K8200s electronics fot that CNC. Im planning to engrave wood. Is it possible? Will steppers be able to handle that?

Thank you :
