General Mach Discussion / Best way to convert step and direction to +/-10V
« on: September 03, 2009, 04:31:43 PM »
In my mill conversion I need +/-10V to run my servo drives.  I was going to use the pixie boards that were made for doing this but they are no longer available.  What other options do I have?

I can tell you for certain that my old AMD N-force 2 integrated video (shared ram with system) works just fine.  My Intel system is an old socket 370 celeron system industrial PC - I think it has it's own ram for video.

Take a look in the Tutorial section.  There is a file called G-rex setup for dummies.  It "might" help you out.  I went through alot of what you are going through getting my G-rex talking to the PC.  Mariss and Art helped me out alot.

What's wrong with on-board video?  I have 2 systems one AMD and one Intel both have onboard video and both seem to work fine.  I'm not actually running a machine yet both both have cut virtual roadrunners.

Your welcome. Glad I can finally add something to this great site. 
I can send you the original word file if you would like.  That way any errors I made could be fixed. 
Now we need someone to step up the plate and do the same thing for setting up the G-Rex portion of Mach4.  Any takers?  I'm willing to try but I will be asking alot of questions (maybe a new thread on the Mach4/G-Rex area) since I'm a complete beginner at all of this.

I re-pdf'd the file with a newer version of acrobat.  I should work now.  If not get a copy of Foxit - it's free, smaller, faster and better.

Tutorials / G-Rex setup guide for new users

After spending many many hours trying to get the G-Rex and my PC to talk (I read the manuals over and over) I gave up  >:( and called Mariss and emailed Art. This is what I did today to get it all working. ;D
Hope it can help another new user.

Mach3 and G-Rex / MPG's and the G-rex
« on: March 03, 2006, 03:15:39 PM »
I am converting a Bridgeport Boss 5 to servo's and Machx.  I want to use separate MPG's to contol each axis (instead of one MPG and a selector switch.)
Can I use the encoder inputs (the A,B and C axis) on the G-rex to accept MPG inputs? 
If so it also looks like the G-rex can be run in autonomous mode and be controlled with the MPG's to make a pseudo manual mill.
