Schematic for the Controller Electronics for Tommelise (in progress)
I decided that I had better document the mare's nest of wires that are on the controller board that runs Tommelise this evening so I rolled out KiCad and got reacquainted with it. Here is the schematic as it exists at the moment.
Although it looks rather intimidating when you really look at the schematic you discover there are really only a few unique elements that are used in set configurations over and over. It is also worth noting that the encoder and limits detector modules are located on small, independent boards located quite near to where they are needed. That keeps the controller board a lot simpler, though it does load it up with connectors. :-)
