check the steps per rev are not 1024, some are and some are 1000. or 512/500, 256/250

really? well thats easy to say, thousands of posts? thats not true is it? you know it isnt your just making that up. I would like to say there is more machines working successfully on bit sensor than all the others added together. yep its looking more and more like CNC snobbery, 


"My machine requires 16 outputs minimum, and 22 inputs minimum, or a total of 38IOs. The ESS has a total of 51, so its well used,
with a small margin. Can Bitsensor do 38 IOs?

My servos require a max Step pulse rate of 416kHz, and my C axis at full speed requires 466.7 kHz, can Bitsensor keep up?"

yep that tells me everything I need to know, thats the kind of sh:t talk that puts people off.
 oh and please quote where i said bitsensor was "quality product" thats a lie isnt it?

Your opinion is just that, an opinion ,and obviously not based on fact.
Here in the uk , I can buy 12 bitsensor units for one ESS ,now that is a major consideration.

As far as "ZERO MANUFACTURER SUPPORT"  Ive never needed it, there is enough set up information on that website,
and at these prices if you have problem just buy another. If you need to rely on manufacturers support then the documentation, hard ware or software is not up to scratch.

   Are you sure your opinion is not based on "CNC snobbery"

  OK firstly your requirements are obviously way above what the bitsensor can provide, we agree on that.
there is a very true expression "horses for courses"

you advised:

"Do yourself a favor and don't waste your money on that junk. Buy a European or US made board. I use an recommend an Ethernet SmoothStepper, but a PoKeys 57CNC is worthwhile
as are UC100, UC400 and UC300."

you did this after not knowing what the spec or use I was putting the machine to (foam cutter), that statement could quite easily put people off trying one. you offered no evidence of your claim they are junk, so I assume you have non.

Finally I pointed anyone who might be interested in one to:

there you will find everything you need to get one working, and fault finding. So I consider that helping!

Sure but just because it dosnt fit your particular application dosnt mean you should slag it off. Im guessing you have absolutely zero experience with the bitsensor unit?
and your low opinion has been based on others opinions? well TBH after using these units I can only come to the opinion that ESS etc. are taking the piss with there price.
Really we should be encouraging people to use this equipment as it gets your foot in the door of the CNC hobby without breaking the bank.
Its not the machine ,its what you make with it that counts.

  Gives you all you need to get one working, but an absolute rip off of a price, 4 x what you can get them for elsewhere

Cheers fo that info . I've used bitsensor plus UCboth usb and ethernet.
The bitsensor units I have found are excellent, for the money. I have a CNC Swiss auto type lathe which has been running 5 days a week for the last 18 months and has never missed a beat. I have used them on 2 CNC mills and a CNC hot wire cutter. The only issue I've had (once you take time to work out how to set them up) was a unit that was DOA, the seller replaced it. They are about £20 here in the UK and if you want a basic motion controller these are the way to go ,in my experience

Hi, will mach3 run with Apollo Lake J3455 or intel atom processors as found in the mini PC,s?
I am going to br using it with a bitsensor usb interface.
