RE:GALIL DMC-1842 /ICM2900/MACH
During the studying of the galil and mach 3 doc. im having trouble understanding how mach3 communicates to galil. I purchased camsoft package 2 yr ago but have not had the drive to complete ,then licensing fees are judicious. my servo drives are servo dynamics pmw needing 10v analog and spindle yaskawa needs 10 v analog . i am connecting encoders ,drives and spindle to icm2900. im looking for details on how to do this . can you give me direct on where/what to study.
thankyou john

If you don't have tons of experience, keep it simple for now. I have to find my manuals but it is relatively easy, Galil has configurable pins, map them in Mach and you're all set.  I would recommend step/direction to the drives for the time being and a simple pot to control the spindle.  Get the machine running and then tweak.

I wonder if any one help me about using DMC-1832 Or DMC-1842 with Mach3 and configure MPG unit attached with system and the motors type areservo motors with (A+,A-,B+,B-,C+,C-) encoders will connect to controller.


Note: the old controller DMC-9542 , I am planing to use DMC-1842 because the old one not support the Galil plugin and not compatible with Mach3.


The most important question I want to know , If I will use DMC-1832 in this machine , I will need any special coding ?
OR I will use Galil plugin to configure this system with Mach3 without needing any coding ??
