    John S thanks for offer although I have already sorted it out.
    Out of interest why are you not using it?

    Bought it together with a load of other USB cards as part of an evaluation process.
    Wasn't happy with the support from Bert at the time, don't know if it's changed and also my take on it was people wanted Mach as the front end for support and knowing where they were.

    One example was homing, at the time when you went to home from somewhere in the job it moved X,Y, and Z all at the same time. If you were in a pocket the result was to smashed the tool into the side as it was moving.
    We had hells own trying to explain the Bert it needed to move Z first then X and Y.

    He did alter it but it was the process of getting it done that switched me off it.

    This has been my worry around the knowledge / support. Like you say lots are using mach3 and the network of people's knowledge is there. I'm not sure what to do although the USB / ethernet connection are so much better.

    I'm guessing your using mach3 then?

    Cheers

    Just a few more pics of current progress. Hoping to have the controller up and running within the next couple of weeks.

    Do you like the CNC Controller card? Had you used Mach3 at all first? Do you think the controller is worth the money?

    Cheers

    Another couple of parts. The 25 pin units are pretty good because they allow for wiring and changing pin numbers easily. I have the the same units for the units between the breakout board and the stepper drive units.

    One of the pictures wasn't too clear but you can see all the wiring better in this one.

    Quick question.......I've just got my CPU5 Card and I have a quick question. When I measure with my multimeter between pins 14 and 23 so the spindle on-off output and ground.

    I am connecting this to a relay but I'm intrested how this works because when I hit the ON button on the PC the voltage hits a perfect 6mv but when I turn the button off it blips around? Have a look at the video? Is this correct?

    Cheers

    Done a little more work on the controller today. Hopefully I should have it moving the machine before the end of the week assuming work doesn't take over my life again!
