Item includes all available documents (manuals, programming guides, etc.), drivers, Mach3 plugins, and firmware.

The G100 is a 6-axis motion controller. It uses USB or Ethernet communication with a host PC to execute motion control and I/O commands. The axis outputs use a Step/Direction interface to motor drives. Each axis has an associated quadrature encoder input. The G100 also has 22 general purpose inputs, 16 general purpose outputs, 4 analog to digital inputs and 4 digital to analog outputs. Each digital input and output has an LED indicator.

The G100 uses an FPGA to generate axis step pulse timing and an 8-bit microcomputer to calculate motion control flow. Communication with the G100 is via text string commands and replies. All axis can run independently or in coordination with other axis. Coordinated axis motion is vector based. The associated axis accelerate, run and decelerate simultaneously while maintaining exact speed ratios.

The G100 uses a unique method of motion control. The FPGA produces step pulse frequencies proportional to 16-bit word. This results 32,767 CW and 32,767 CCW evenly spaced step-pulse frequencies per range. The commanded frequency can only be changed at fixed rate of 1,024 times per second. The same crystal oscillator time base generates step pulse frequencies and the update rate. The axis position is a running sum of the issued velocities.

The 1,024 updates per second also apply to all inputs and outputs. Inputs, including analog are sampled at that rate and all outputs, including analog are updated at that rate.


8 step-pulse frequency ranges. 65,535 CW and CCW speeds per range. Maximum step-pulse frequency is 4.194304 MHz. Maximum step-pulse jitter is 125 ns. Step and direction outputs are 5V logic, +/-24 mA current drive per output. Step-pulse indicator LED is activity driven; it is lit when output is pulsing.
6 quadrature encoder inputs including index channel. Maximum encoder count rate is 1 MHz. Encoder inputs are filtered and have indicator LEDs on each input.
16 general-purpose outputs. The outputs are rated at 100mA, 24VDC maximum per output. The outputs are suitable for driving DC relay coils. Each output has an indicator LED which lights when an output is “on”.
22 general-purpose inputs. The inputs can be activated by SPST switches to ground, by open-collector sensors or by 5V logic levels. The inputs are filtered and protected to +/- 50VDC. Each input has an indicator LED that lights when an input is grounded.
4 Digital to analog outputs. Each output is a 0 to 5V (0 to 10V optional) op-amp output and 8-bit resolution.
4 Analog to digital inputs. Each input takes a 0 to 5V (0 to 10V optional) input voltage range. The resolution is 8-bit and the input impedance is 2.2K.
The G100 requires a 12VDC to 24VDC power supply rated at 1.5A. It supplies an internally regulated 5VDC to the terminal block outputs.
The G100 has both a USB and an Ethernet interface.
The G100 has a 2.5” by 7.375” mounting area footprint and is 1.5” high ( 63.5mm by 187mm by 38mm). The weight is 10 ounces (284 gm). The enclosure is black anodized aluminum. The G100 has 96 bare-wire type terminal block locations. The terminal blocks have a 3.5mm pitch.

*****VIDEOS***** / 4th Axis Fun
« on: October 13, 2010, 02:20:04 AM »
A while back I made Pepper Mills.  Here's one such getting cut...

Also, there's some CAD/CAM info on this project at http://dwell.leveragesoftware.com/blog_post_view.aspx?BlogPostID=75279361e91549f7b57756e828a677df

The machine is a Thermwood C5 and the 4th Axis I put together myself from a 6" rotary table and a hefty nema 34 motor. All is run by Mach3 via a SmoothStepper. The wood is maple.  Enjoy!


Galil / DMC-2030 USB setup help needed
« on: July 24, 2010, 04:49:10 PM »

I just bought a Galil DMC-2030 and am trying to get Windows (both XP and 7) and Mach3 to recognize it.  At present Windows Device Manager shows (see attached pic):
under "Universal Serial Bus Contollers"...
-- "Generic USB Hub"
under "Other Devices"...
-- ("!") "NET2888 USB Interface Controller"
I've installed the v7 drivers (I think) by running dmcdriverdll02.exe and dmcsmartterm02.exe and also Galil.m3p but the result in Mach3 is "Galil Card not connected!!"
I've also toggled the USB switch on the unit, but still no luck.  Any help is much appreciated!

General Mach Discussion / Tripped limit faults axis stepper driver
« on: March 23, 2010, 12:28:26 AM »
I've just hooked up some NPN Proximty Sensors as limit switches and when the moving (Y) axis trips the sensor Mach3 (latest version) responds as expected with "limit triggered" message and Mach3 state change to Reset mode.

The bad thing that happens is that the (Y) axis stepper motor driver (Gecko G203V) goes into "fault" mode which takes it offline as far as Mach3 is concerned.

Any ideas on how to keep Mach3 from faulting the driver?

When is the next version of Video Probing Plugin due out?

Is the source code available for expermentation?


General Mach Discussion / How do I zero Machine Coords for "A-axis"?
« on: January 03, 2008, 03:16:25 PM »
Hi All,

On the "Settings" tab in Mach3 there's an "Encoder Position" box with "Load DRO", "To DRO", and "Zero" buttons for X, Y, and Z...

These buttons also allow zeroing of "Machine Coords"... How do I zero Machine Coords for "A"?

I've tried a few SetOEMDRO() parameters, but without any luck.  Any help is deeply appreciated.  Thanks!


Hello Forum,

I have a to repeat a process several times that involves my 4th (or A) axis.  What's the best/easiest way to reset to 0 degrees 4th axis without unwinding between operations?

Also, can that be automated to run from gCode?  Thanks!

Show"N"Tell ( Your Machines) / 4th Axis for CNC Router
« on: November 13, 2007, 04:29:34 AM »
Here's a 4th axis I built from a 6 inch rotary table and a high-torque NEMA 34.  The rotary mount is fixed to and MDF bed and the tailstock slides to accommodate the workpiece.  The whole unit bolts down to the table of my CNC Router.  A Gecko G203V (Vampire) drive quick connects to the NEMA 34 and safely disconnects when not in use (don't try this with other drives... it'll burn them out!).  A Perske 24k rpm spindle (on a VFD) holds the tool.  I use either a laser or dial-indicator to true to gantry, that usually takes about 5 minutes.

This setup works great and I can cut using full numerical rotations or via indexing.
