Updated SmoothStepper Installation and Upgrade Tips

I just updated the SmoothStepper upgrade guide first posted a few months ago. The new version is here: http://soigeneris.com/Documents/Installing%20and%20Configuring%20the%20SmoothStepper.pdf
Happy machining , Jeff Birt

Link works good and the guide looks good brushing over it. I'll have to read it all later. Thank's Jeff.

Thanks for the nice writeup.  It was the last piece I needed to get moving.

The link didn't work for me, though.  I backed up to your homepage and followed the documents link from there and found it here.

Yes, the link is indeed dead at this time.

Maybe Jeff will fix it soon?

Does anyone have documentation on the SS connectors and which pins connect to which inputs?? Need to wire-up Estop and limit switches.

The pins on the SS are like the parallel port, in other words on Port 1 you have 1 to 9, 14, 16 and 17 are outputs and 10-13 and 15 are Inputs. Port2 can be either the same as port 1 or you can configure it so that Pin 2-9 are Inputs rather than outputs but all other pins remain the same. Port 3 has 5 inputs 3 of which are differential so can be used for encoder/MPG inputs if your encoder MPG is differential.
As for which Input or Output does what, well that is up to you and you just configure that in Mach, for example if you have limit switches connected to Port 1 Pin 10 you just assign that in Machs Ports and Pins, Inputs page.

Hood;
Thanks so much for the info that's what I thought from the documentation but couldn't verify.
