Re: Hanging case for GTOCP4?
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
On the CP5 controllers I would advise against putting them inside a cloth bag. The CP3 and CP4 are ok because they do not produce very much current for the two servo motors under normal tracking conditions. The CP5 sends full current to both stepper servos all the time, even when they are not moving, so the drivers are at full power and produce more heat. The case dissipates the heat to the surrounding air just fine, but if they are inside a cloth bag, they will not have any air circulation.

With the mounting bracket, you only have to losen two thumb screws and tip the unit forward to remove it, and the opposite to install it into the bracket. It’s quite quick to do and doesn’t require any tools. The thumb screws are similar to if not the same as the ones which secure the sliding access panels on your Mach1.
