CAN bus is a serial communication protocol that is used in many different industries, including automotive, industrial automation, and medical equipment. It is a very reliable and efficient protocol, and it is well-suited for use in 3D printers.
There are many advantages to using CAN bus in a 3D printer. It can help to reduce wiring complexity. In a traditional 3D printer, each stepper motor and sensor has its own dedicated wire. This can lead to a lot of tangled wires, which can be difficult to manage and can be a source of noise and interference. CAN bus can reduce this complexity by using a single bus to transmit data to and from all of the components in the printer. This can make the printer easier to build and maintain.
We offer a range of VORON-compatible CAN bus products.
