Looking for a mesa 5i25 or similar card to try linuxcnc.

Let me know what you have got and how much please. Many thanksRoss As I said on your other post I have the 5i25 + 7i76 here is a link to the 5i25 :- http://eusurplus.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=63_291&product_id=50

Be aware that this fits into a PCI slot in the PC and that you can get a PICX version as well.

Then you would need a BOB (to make life easier ) like the 7i76 here:- http://eusurplus.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=63_293&product_id=52

and also an Ethernet one 7i76E not requiring the 5i25 http://eusurplus.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=63_292&product_id=270

I does seem like a mine field. There are other BOB's that have more encoders on etc.

Good luck
