 Dave I may have to look at getting 1 of those controller boards and make the mod with some help for a friend  ;) I have one of the hv-6 setups from promica  ;) it is pretty good. I have his 4 axis IC3A control unit which is tidy but I had issues with the optical sensor inputs to the axis cards.A  friend spotted a few dry joints on the card which I re soldered and they now work fine ;) It is quite strange how Marc has just disappeared he was very good with his after sales service.

hi Nick, with the 110v transformer changed out to a 240v one and after finding a tiny defect on pcb(under microscope) i now have some spindle action!!!  about to connect through g540 will let you know how ends up. anyone able to confirm output pin settings/ pwm settings with g540 in mach 3.  cheers,   Dave
Hi dave this is good news ;D  I just wish I had the electrical smarts to change the transformer  :o and I'm running my machine from a Promica controller and the maker of this system seems to have vanished :-\ I suspect I would have to find some way of getting a pwm signal.

Hi David I am very interested in this kit for my cnc SX3 ;D but I did notice from Hood's pdf that it appears to be for 110v not 240v as we have in Aust.

FAQs / Re: Can Mach3 Do PCB Drilling using an NC file
« on: August 16, 2012, 03:14:07 AM »
Hi Nick,

As you have, quite correctly, pointed out Mach3 is able open / load an ‘.nc’ file.

Unfortunately, nothing is ever truly simple and the (Excellon format) .nc drill files contain many commands that Mach3 does not recognize also the absence of the Z axis commands further complicates the issue.
Just for reference http://www.excellon.com/manuals/program.htm

There are, however, a number of ‘free to use’ converter programs (some work better than others) to create GCode files from .nc files and one such program can be found here http://hans-w.com/download.htm

The similar Gerber files (.gbr) can, in many instances, be handled by LazyCam which will create the necessary GCode for Mach3 use but I have never tried LazyCam with an .nc drill file - maybe it could be persuaded ??

Hope this helps.

Tweakie.
