Personally I'd just buy 3 or 4 Leadshine drivesat far less cost. Gecko's are old hat nowadays, technology has moved on. Leadshine are now doing closed loop steppers and 3 phase steppers which are more like servo's in operation but with the simplicity of steppers.

I'll back John on this. Leadshine AM882 drives can be bought for $70 each and knock the spots off Geckos by long way. Leadshine DM856 can be bought for 30 and still knock the spots off Geckos. Both are 80V Digital drives.

Gecko servo drives are least 15 years old by now.
That's like trying to run your CNC on Windows 98
