Stepper Motor HELP!!!!
« on: December 28, 2006, 09:29:05 PM »
Hello, I'll keep this simple!

New to DYI CNC's

I have 3 Quicksilver Servo motors with Digital I/O Controllers,  I'm trying to set them up to work with MACH 3.  Any help is would be helpful

this is the link to the servo - http://www.qcontrol.com/support/datasheets/SM23%20DS%20r3.3.pdf

this is the link to the controller  http://www.qcontrol.com/saved/technical_docs/QCI-TD013%20Optical%20IO%20Module%20-%20OPTM%20and%20OPTO.pdf

These servos can either be connected via RS 232 or RS 485.

I presently have them connected as RS 232.

They all share the same TX and RX lines and are uniquely identified by a 2 didgit code. I cannot seem to figure out how to use these!

Mach only runs step/direction drives, not serial comm.
