Have ESS+C32. Would like to add C31
« on: April 06, 2013, 10:35:40 PM »
OK, I am maybe a CNC4PC junkie.  Anyone got any other good options, I am more than happy to pay some more for better service.  

 I'm running an ESS with my C32 BOB, nothing complicated about that.  I need more inputs and preferably 24VDC so I said, free parallel port on my PC, why not use C31?  BOBs are more reliable than POkeys ( at least I think).  Can I configure that parallel port on my computer so that MACH will recognize and deal with it.  I understand I can add 5 new inputs via that LPT1.  I'd use it for things like fault messages.  Low Lube, Spindle fault, Low air, Input 1 ( 6-36 VDC PNP prox switch), and Power supply fault.  I can also use one of its outputs for the 24VDC solenoid on my spindle brake.

Can this work, or will it not and WHY?
