    Hi,
    No, HQ based in Russia, but we can ship our devices to UK
    At the current moment you can buy device E3p with PoE at promotional price 125USD(shipping fee add 40USD)
    Here is manuals for the controllers: http://purelogic.ru/doc/PDF/Controll...sh/plcm-e3.zip

  4. How does this compare to to warp9 tech design's USB SmoothStepper, and Ethernet SmoothSteppers?

    I ask as I am looking to change from printer port, to USB or Ethernet very soon.

    We've not examined ESS(have anyone got such experience?) but we sold a hundreds of Plcm series ethernet devices in Russia before ESS even was announced. In one word, plcm are stable, all known bugs are fixed(last bug wasregistered and fixed in march). Plcm-e3 have STABLE USB, while afair SS use FTDI chip and drivers, it hangs up after even a little interference, f.e. when you powers up a spindle.
    There are some difference in pulsing engine - PLCM provide 100khz, but it's enough for most purposes. And you can't do threading on plcm, bur I'm not sure that SS supports this function.

    That saved me asking the question, unless you can get a multi line encoder into Mach you are wasting time threading.

  7. How would someone from the UK place an order for your products?
    And how do you take payment? PayPal, Card, Etc?

    I'm a bit confused, although that's not hard
    It says " Controller can be connected to any BOB or CNC driver box (destined for LPT-port) via DB-25 connector."

    If you are using the parallel port they why the ethernet and USB connections ?

    Can you use this on just USB or ethanet and forget the BOB and parallel port ?

    I assumed that meant the output of the controller can be connected to a parallel port connector on your control box. Some sort of simple cable to convert the connectors on the PCB to a DB-25 connector.
