    opto-isolated inputs
    regenerative dump circuit
    is that good???? ive looked at the manual, but how easy is it to connect to a BOB board (if it can be run off a BOB board)

    Hi Nik

    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

    Just a 5 volt signal,the direction signal is either high or low which determines which way the motor turns and the step signal is a pulse (square wave).
    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.

    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

    Hi Nick

    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.
