FYSETC F6 V1.3

Product Introduction


F6V1.3

The FYSETC F6 board is a feature rich all-in-one electronics solution for 3D printer and other CNC devices. It provides six drivers slots and supports Pololu pin compatible stepper drivers, especially the TMC drivers modules. There is no need for flying wires when using TMC2100, TMC2130 and TMC2208. and SPI,Usart and ther pin configer functions are available.

Features


  • Compact size: 117mm x 87mm
  • fully integrated all in one solution:
  • Arduino 2560-R3 compatible (works with Sprinter, Repetier-Firmware, Marlin out of the box)
  • CH340 for high speed USB serial connection
  • UNIVERSAL POWER:
  • can be used with 9V-28V for motors / heated bed
  • integrated high precision power regulators (DC/DC): 5V 3A Max
  • power input auto selector for ATmega/logic (stand alone or power from USB)
  • Easy DISPLAY + SD-CARD connector:

Jumper for different drivers


In order to support as many different drivers as possible, F6 sets a lot of jumper positions. Different drive modules require different jumpers. The following is a detailed description:

F6V1.3-driver-SCH

As shown in the schematic diagram above, there are three sets of jumpers in the drive section: JP1, JP6, and JP8. The different driver correspondences are shown in the following table:

Divers Class Used jumpers
A4988/DRV8825/THB6128/LV8729 JP6(only ABC ways)
TMC2100 JP6(only AB ways)
TMC2208 JP1(Short 2&3)& JP6
TMC2130 JP1(Short 1&2)& JP8(Short All)

1- A4988 and similar series

F6_4988

If you use the normal A4988 series module, you only need to set the jumper according to the position shown in the figure above, and you should not insert any jumpers in the shaded green part.

2-TMC2100

F6_2100

If you use the TMC2100 module and want to change its microsteps and mode settings, first you must ensure that the CFG1 and CFG2 of the 2100 module are connected by a pin next to it. (For the FYSETC version, you can only perform the welding configuration on the board. The default CFG1 And CFG2 is not connected to the pin header, and the connected version will be sold later)

3-TMC2208

F6_2208

If you use the TMC2208, there are two modes to choose . FYSETC's 2208 is factory defaulted to standalone mode. At this mode, you can only set the microsteps by MS1 and MS2. If you want to config more , you need to enable PDN. First, You must make the jumper next to the PDN pin closed, and second, make sure that the 2 and 3 pin of the JP1 jumper next to the drive position on F6 board is connected , and then, you can make the configuration of the 2208 with marlin (SoftwareSerial).

4-TMC2130

F6_2130

If you use the TMC2130, you should use the SPI mode. FYSETC has a version specifically for F6. The jumper settings on the motherboard are as shown above, and the shaded green part is not used. If you want to use the sensorless endstop function of the 2130, you also need to connect the jumper next to the limit switch socket. The corresponding position of each switch is: X- = X, X+ = E2, Y- = Y, Y+ = E1, Z- = Z, Z+ = E0, then configure the firmware, you can use all the features of the 2130.
