I have the Flu real bad so in a few days.
I will post some some info but i am not going to get involved with the development of your machine.
Start reading the Mach manual, I believe there is a six axis screen set that can be used.
I would suggest you write a functional description of what you want to do.

Sorry you're feeling under the weather- bet you'll get a flu shot next year won't you!

Here is what I need help with. I sent you documentation about the slosyn 230T. I want to use it with MACH3. I belive the "pin 1" designation for step should be the "PU" outsput of the driver, if we're talking about the X Axis.
Also, "pin 3" should be the "cw/ccw" or direction connection, right?

Now, where I am running into trouble is with one other pin carrying 5VDC to the computer. I suppose it charges the "step" circuit, but am not sure. Which pin should that be?
