Maker Shield – Arduino Uno Compatible Shield


SKU: SMSV12 Categories: , Tags: , , , , ,


The Maker Shield is an all in one GRB1.1 solution for CNC control designed for use with the Arduino® Uno and Uno compatible controller boards. This shield features 4 embedded DRV8825 stepper motor drivers making configuring and setting up your system an easy plug and play exercise. Use this shield in your laser engravers, CNC routers, plasma cutters or any robotics project that has stepper motors.

The Maker Shield is superior to the standard CNC shield featuring upgraded tracks for increased current carrying capacity, reverse polarity protection, embedded stepper drivers and much more resulting in superior performance. Only minimal wiring and an addition of an Arduino micro controller is required.

The Maker Shield was designed with ease of use in mind. All the digital I/O pins are clearly labelled for your convenience and as well as easy configuring through micro-step dip switches and current setting potentiometers.
