Arduino Mega / Ramps Shield - Pinout


Is there a pin map for the ramps shield for which motor goes where, and where the vacuum gets hooked up, and the solenoid valve. I remember there used to be one in the docs, but I can’t seem to find it, but I have a FarmBot assembled, I just have to toss the electronics on there and this is the only thing holding me back.



Hey David, you will plug your motors into the X, Y, and Z slots on the RAMPS shield. The vacuum pump and solenoid valve should be hooked up to D8, D9, and D10 (your choice). We’re going to have a customizable peripherals widget on the web app out next week, so you will be able to control/label them manually with that widget, or you can do so from the sequences :slight_smile:



What about the motor encoder pin connections to the Ramp Shield?

Thank you,



The default Arudino encoder pin connections can be found in the code here.

By the way, the pins for the peripherals are now fully customizable in the web app.


Thank you!



I am just starting working with the ramps shield on top of my mega.

Included are four links with diagrams and video on working with the ramps shield. I hope they help.

I am interested on where pin 8,9,13 on the mega show up on the ramps shield. Can anyone help?
There are some videos, too:
