I left my ESS inside my computer box where the USB SS lived. No problem finding 5v in there!!

I left my ESS inside my computer box where the USB SS lived. No problem finding 5v in there!!

I'm redesigning the back panel of my shortly to be released "ready to run" enclosure. The current configuration for the USS (USB SmoothStepper) uses a USB panel mount extension lead.

The new design will have the ESS and USS mount againt the back panel so that the LED indicators are accessible and visible. I will hopefully have that done this week.

Attached is an image of the current back panel.

I'm also designing a stand-alone enclosure for the ESS to provide any easy way of upgrading from a parallel
 to Smooth Stepper without having to modify existing Controller  enclosures.


Cheers,

Peter.

Well I still have not been able to get the ESS to fail, time to devise more evil testing procedures  >:D

I did get the new SSENC-2 finished up though. I have been building the USB version (SSENC-1) for more than a year now. Since the new ESS and the USB version share the same footprint only the back panel had to be modified. I've been toying with the idea of making a 2" longer enclosure available. The end panels would the same the increased depth would provide room for adding a few operator controls like using out EZ-MPG1 for SRO and/or DRO controls.
Happy machining , Jeff Birt

Greg was hoping later this month, he is currently making a test bed for checking them so hopefully it will be soon as I want a few more especially if I manage to make the differential and 24v I/O bobs  ;D

Does the SS support SwapAxis(). I was leanining toward the KFlop for my new router, but it looks like the new SS and a PMDX-126 might be the way to go.

Yes, or at least the SS does and I would imagine the ESS would but if you give me 5 mins I will test it out for you.

I jumped on here to ask about ESS swapaxis, so I have that answer, thanks!

Does anyone know if the ESS can co-exist with TCP modbus?   (I will take time later to read this entire thread, but for now I would much appreciate an answer to this if anyone knows).

Afraid my PLCs are via serial so cant say for sure if it would be ok but I can say I have an Ethernet PoKeys and I have used that with the Ethernet SS whilst testing the PoKeys encoder inputs and it was fine.
