General Mach Discussion / Where to start
« on: May 09, 2011, 03:18:58 PM »
Hi,  I have a commercial cnc lathe I'm thinking about running with Mach3.  I have done searches with no results, and other than reading every thread,
is there anyone who could answer some basic retrofit questions?

1: I have analog dc servo's with resolver encoders and need to figure out exactly what or what kind of servo interface card, motion controller, breakout board,
    quadrature encoder, etc., I need to get them to work with Mach3.

2: Can I use my existing operater panel for all the buttons, switches, jog wheel, etc. (manual functions - spindle off/on, collant off/on, tailstock fwd/rev, jog x z,
    home, work light off/on, tool changer)

Thanks for any help, or point me in the right direction.
