1) How do I power the R32 + CNCv3 combo? Just powering the CNCv3 be sufficient?
Or I need to power both from the same source with a (hydra) split power cord at 12v?
I am planning to use 12v nominal (10v -> 14v) Li Ion supply eventually.
Right now I have a 1.5Amp wall wart to power this @12v.
Yes, a Y cable can be used to power both boards. One branch for each board, from a common
2) There are 4 slots for hooking up the stepper drivers on the CNCv3 named X Y Z & A.
Which one to use for RA & which one for Dec?
X for RA, Y for Dec? And the header pins marked "End Stops" for limit switches?
X is Axis1/RA, and Y is Axis2/DEC
