General Mach Discussion / Breakout Board
« on: July 31, 2011, 03:11:46 AM »
Hi to all,

 I am looking to make a breakout board with full opto-isolation on Outputs and Inputs as well as 2x dedicated 10A relays.

 The uses will be able to select from a further combination of;
 a) 2 out of 3 comprising 1x 10A relay, Charge pump and 0-10V for Spindle control.
 b) Channel Y Step and Dir or Y Step and Relay no4 (10A relay)

 i believe this board will adequatly cover Lathe and Milling use.

Your comments, recommendations and interest would be most welcome.
