    Does anyone recognise this main board???

  2. That main board looks like a proprietary job. To be honest, I'd scrap it and assume using MACH3 and a BOB to the existing stepper drivers via level shifters as previously discussed or to new drivers & Steppers. With the standard software you start the run on the PC but nothing happens till you press the green 'cycle' button on the lower left of the panel. Obviously the panel could be rewired to input into Mach3 - e-stop, jog, etc...

    Its Gone!!! ive ripped it out as i have everything that will not be utilised by Mach3, except the lights of course. What fun that was... I will be using the existing steppers, Drivers and power supply and anything else i can get away with. I was reading the SD drive manual and it looks like there is provision for each drive to control two steppers...errr.

    Good lad, You won't regret it.
    Done a load of Denfords and they were all kludges to get working on original software.

    The thing is Mach3 is such a nice piece of software that i was always going to go that way, Joking aside though it always seems like such a shame to rip it to bits, when someone has put so much time and effort wiring it to begin with, it was so neat and tidy its made it a snip to see whats going on ... but still times move on dont they???
