General Mach Discussion / Max CL option

Can anyone explain about Max CL option on the pins and ports screen?

I am trying to connect Mach3 to a Boss 6 control.

Well, very interesting so far!!!

In the past, I use to work repairing all sort of machines, I've got experience with German,danish,Belgium,french,Italian, etc.. controls, and various PlC brands. We allways had some sort of respect for traditional British electric controls, good old fashion contactors basically indestructible and the same respect for American TTL technology.
Basically, I need to spend my cash on motors and controls.
Is not my intention to make this machine work 24/7, but I can see your point.
I am new to CNC machining but the configuration if I change controls and motors doesn't look to complicated (new hardware, new wiring and scrap everything). But I still have a mechanical speed control by pulley on the spindle, so scrap that too and modify the transmition to connect a frequency converter with a NEW MOTOR!!....AAARGH!
I wish I had all that time (and Dosh) to do all this.
In the meantime if any of you could put me in the right direction to get the wiring sorted for now with an opto card.I am sure that I still got a small design for an isolating board that I used on an industrial washing machine. I have got the original wiring diagrams but the TTL boards are not included and the pin connections are not clear (my fault for being new to this).

Thank you,is nice to find people ready to help.

Hi Hood.
Why didn't you use the original motors? Will they become a problem in the future or just not posible to find drives for them?

Thanks Hood!
I would appreciate if you tell me a bit more about what you did with your machine.
If I have to go that way will be good to know the experience of somebody with the same machine. You are right about the electronics but this type of circuits are the only ones that you can repair quick and easy, if you have a problem with today's technology, g..d help you.

Thanks again for your help!

I have a lovely Bridgeport Series 1 BOSS 6.1 Machine. The idea is to make the machine work with Mach3. So far, after many hours of searching for information on the forum and other internet sites, I think I got only a bit more confused.
Can anybody send wiring info for the XDI card, or send me in the right direction to get the info I need.
I have contacted Hillbilli to purchase one of his cards with but no reply.
One post have some reference about pins 13 and 19 for the axis drives.

If I recall all the info that I've been reading, I think that it can be done. Is this right?

Thank you in advance for your help.
