Thanks Russ.

Hood, probably for you: in the first photo, the header on the left looks like the 24VDC supply, and the one on the right looks like the control. What would the control be? Will it work with 5V?

Not 100% sure what you are meaning but if I am understanding,  in the top pic the ++-- is where you connect the 24v supply and 1 to 8 is for each relay and you put the 24v+ from your control. 5v would not work as the relays are 24v coil, if you put relays with 5V coils and joined the 0v of the 5v supply and the 0v of the 24v supply then it would probably work. The LED signifying the activation of the relay would be dull though.

Hood,

Yes, you understood exactly what I was asking :) So both the supply and control are 24V. Thanks.

Yes.
You could always convert over to 24v ;)

LOL... I was trying to keep this conversion as simple as I could, but somehow I keep adding more "features" to it, and now you're suggesting throwing in a PLC as well... no thanks ;)

Dan

P.S.
Sorry, forgot that simple for you means using a PLC in the first place :D

Yes PLC is good but 24v BOBs  and differential I/O BOB for ESS would make it 24v ;D

Looks like the Bridgeport may never be fully finished ;D
I have been offered a Chiron FZ12  without control/motors and I am going to look it over this weekend. If I get it I will need to get rid f my Student lathe and the Bridgeport to make room. I will likely need the drives and motors off of the Bridgeport and also the PLC etc so will strip out all the electrics.
Not sure what I will do, I could possibly sell it just for scrap or try and sell it as a bare machine for retrofit or I suppose I could put the steppers back on and sell it as a runner. Will see what happens at the weekend then I will decide which way to go after that but its looking like it will be unfinished ;D
