This controller is designed to be used with a RepRap RAMPS interface board such as our RAMPS compatible shield (HC3DPR0002). Using this module allows you to print your designes without requiring a computer be connected to your printer. The module contains and 20 x 4 line backlit LCD display, buzzer, SD card reader, and control inputs. The module also includes cables and adapter board for solder-less connection to a RAMPS shield. Power is taken directly from the RAMPS shield so no additional cabling is required.
Although this module is designed to be used with a RAMPS shield and 3D printer, it can of course be used for any project where a panel mounted display and control input is required. An Arduino test sketch is available which will demonstrate how to use the module in your own projects.
Schematics and test sketch available on our support forum here.
