I am going to build a cnc router.  I have bought two Adept linear slides that are powered with brushless dc servo motors.  I have contacted Granite, and they say that their drives and breakout board will work with these servos.  My question is will these be compatible with Mach3?  I would appreciate any input I can get.  Thanks, machining fool,  Robert Brown.  These Granite drives 160 volts are only 243. euro, I will have to find out how much in US.

Machining Fool-

You can use these with mach.  I would recomend using there breakout board, it is alot easier to install.


If you have any questions just ask

Thank you for your reply, as you can see I am learning as I go along.  I have another question.  I understand that Mach does not support closed loop, such as absolute position, does EMC2?  I think that is the name of it.  Thanks.  These servos have 2000/step encoding and I would like to have accurate position sensing.  Thanks again.  Bob.
