The 6400 is a programmable motion controller we have some of the old 6200 which I have programmed, not really any good for CNC.
You will have no problem running the drives from a breakout board.
I have some of the same drives which I removed from decommissioned equipment at work, I haven't had time to play around with them yet.
Is there anything in particular you want to know about the drives?
well as they had their own mains connection i did think i wouldnt need a big transformer or power supply to run my motors, thus an easier way to supply each motor, being a newbie i was hoping it was a simple act of connecting to the right break out board and they would all work in harmony, but as i didnt give anything for them its no loss,
what actually comes out of a break out board to in turn make the motor driver do what it does

If I get time this weekend I will connect one of the drives I have to a motor and have play then let you know how I get on.
thanks andy thats great, but.........well it gets worse.......... popped in to see a mate today, id mentioed i was going to build a cnc plasma and should he come across anything keep it for me, well.............
ive got 5 decent sized machines, was in excess of £125,000 each, all with 2 heads that machine 2 items at the same time, so ive got 10 lots of z axis setups,everything to run them as a stand alone system, even temperature controllers to keep them warm/cool, i'll list everything one ive managed to strip just the one, but take a look at the pics and see you guys think
WOW, I wish I had a friend like that. Well done!!! G.
Looks like you might have some useful stuff there.
The Trio Motion controllers are pigs to program (in my opinion anyway)we had a machine at work that used them we ripped them out and replaced with the Parker stuff.
Keep us posted.
What a jammy barstuardIf the nagging gets really bad......Get a bigger shed:naughty:
