Hello all. I've got a simple question that I'm having trouble finding the answer to. On the CRAMPS v2 board, if I don't use the power connector on the beagle bone what do I hook up on the CRAMPS? I see there's an AUXPWR header with 5V, G, and V+. Is V+ hooked up to a regulator, and is 5V input or output (or both)?

I dont understand but you can power from external 5V or USB power. Both connectors are on BBB.

Essentially my first question would be can the BBB be powered through the AUXPWR terminal on the CRAMPs I guess

Ah ok - never tried this. I am not sure about this.
But if you try i think you cannot burn anything that way.

Since the CRAMPS is open source I could probably just download the schematic and take a look if I want to be sure
