    adding more detail to post 7 for any one wanting to use a BOB with opto-isolated outputs and stepper drivers with opto-isolated inputs

    the problem with the BOB supplied as part of the kit is ue use of the slow PC817 opto-isolators used for the outputs

    I would expect the DM860A stepper drivers would have a PC817 on the enable input and a high speed isolator like a HCPL2531 for the step and direction inputs
    as used on this Tormach driver input

    or this


    they are just two of example found
