SmoothStepper USB / Ethernet Smooth stepper and The PMDX-126
« on: November 25, 2014, 02:24:59 AM »
Hi Guys,

I am finally setting up a machine with Mach4.
I messed around with Mach3 a little, but never finished setting up the machine.
I just found out that my Galil controllers are not going to be compatible.

So after doing alot of reading I think I have decided to go wit the Ethernet Smooth Stepper and the PMDX-126
If I am understanding this correctly the combo will allow interfacing to servos also. Is that correct?

I will be using steppers initially, but if I could convert to servos later that would be great.

Any suggestions on this combo?

Thanks,
Joe

Thanks for the info and the link. I just found out that the Galil cards are not supported in Mach4 yet.
And the Galil cards I own will not be supported.
And the Galil plugin will be a licensed pay product.

So I think it is time for a change.

Any update on the Ethernet Version?

Hi Steve,

Will this be ok with Mach4

Galil DMC-2142, ICM-20105, DB-28040-5

Excuse if this a stupid question, but is there a working Galil plugin for Mach4?
I have been looking for it but I must be overlooking it because I have not found it.

Thanks,
Joe

No I have not downloaded anything yet. You can see the response from Steve in the Galil plugin forum.

Thank ger21

I have a Gali PCI controller and Steve/Smurph is not sure if it will work or not.
i will try it with the demo version to confirm yes or no.

I just did not want to buy mach4 unless t will work or after I buy a new control.

Thanks for watching out for me though.
Joe

What are the limitations of the Mach4 demo?
Is it functional enough to get a machine setup? Will it create motion?

Thanks,
Joe

Which drivers do you want installed Galil tool,smarter etc?
Has any one done a step by step instructions.
Example load Galil software,communicate with card, then install mach4 etc

Thanks for your response,
Joe
