Thanks again Hood.
I have my ebay eye on a 250cpu.  If that doesn't work out I will look for a DL05 or DL06.  If I were to go to the latter(s), would the relay model be the best choice for mach3?  And could I get by with other DL05, DL06 models, or is there a model I should stay away from?

My Tool changer has a stepper for the carousel.  I will use the axis method for now and get a H0-CTRIO latter. And 2 AC motors, one for the swing arm, and one for the tool clamp- unclamp, along with a handfull of travel limit sensors.

What would be the best solution, Modio or eBay the 205 (i paid $135) and buy an DL05 or DL06. Or?
Thanks again for your time, Hood

Thanks for your reply Hood.
Yes my PLC has a RS232C Port.  However, from my reading of the Install and Config manual and my lurking in the Modbus forum, I assumed that I needed to go though a Modbus device.  That can be a problem of mine when I ASSuMe, if you know what I mean... 
If I use the Serial port, how does Mach3 recognize the PLC, and would I need a plug-in or some other software? 

Thank You for your time, it is Greatly appreciated. Bill

I am converting my Dyna 4400 with 10 pocket tool changer.  I have a Automation Direct 205 loaded with 240cpu, 3 relay, 4 input, 1 output modules.  I tried to order CNC4PCs M1(backordered) and M11 Modbus cards.  Arturo said that Pokeys is the future.  The 56E looks Great, but how (or can) do I get the 56E to talk to my PLC?  Do I need to use the ModIO card and can it connect with the 56E?

So what are my options?
Thank you for your time, Bill

Hello,
My name is Bill, hence the CNC Bill and I'm from Northern California.   By the way, did anyone else have trouble with the Captua...  I've been a lurker of sometime, but I now have a reason to signup. I started with a home built CNC machine, then I got a RF31 mill which I converted to CNC.  Now I have just bought a Dyna DM4400 from my local  J. C. College.  Its been halfway converted with the AH-HA system, but not fully working (ATC and Spindle for which I will be asking about).  I also have the same user name over on the CNC Zone. 

In closing, I would really like to Thank Art and the rest of the Guys here for creating a GREAT Product.
