Just really which pins things are connected to, for example which pin the X step is and which the X Dir is, which pins for E-Stop, limits etc.

Ok, finally have power on the c11 showing it is out putting to the hdbb board.   The led lights on the drives are showing things to be good.   I'm working on the servoconfigurator3 software to try to tune the drives.  Not having luck and the drives aren't moving at all with mach in jog mode.  Any suggestions? Thanks

If the DROs move in Mach when you jog then it is likely a hardware issue or possibly wrong pin assignment. Also check if the drives require an enable signal and whether you are providing it, could also be the same with your BOB.

I finally got the servoconfigurator3 software to move the servos and got them tuned.   Still having an issue getting mach to move the servos though. I have checked the pin assignments and they are good.  Don't know what else to check.
