Compumotor servo drives for conversion?
« on: May 11, 2011, 09:07:31 PM »
I have a small cnc mill that I built and I use the compumotor zeta4 stepper drives and bipolar stepper motors.
They are great drives and I was wondering if anyone has used there servo drives with Mach3 and how they worked out because I would like to try them in my
cnc Mill conversion if they are compatible. ???

Thanks Mike

If the Compumotor drives can accept Step/Dir input then they should be fine. If they are analogue input then you would need something like the DSPMC, kflop/Kanalog, Galil or lastly YASPC to control them Via Mach.
