how i can   connect CSMIO   to my J2S-A drivers   ? If output is 5V  and i need 24V  .

Better do some more reading I believe that the 24volts is only to bring the servo online and 5 volt is used for S&D. +-10 if using analog

Yes it would be highly unusual for Step/Dir inputs to be 24v, I have seen that on some drives, Baldor I think, but I would say with almost certainty yours will be 5v.

HI

I have one other question the  IP-M   not work on Step/Dir it  work with +-10V    and he have feedback   .... If the feedback is used for follow the mouvement CNC   ... IP-M  is it best then IP-S.

If i chose the IP-M   what  pins of driver i need to connect on IP-M...   (in +-10V i can probably use the mode speed) .

I think that is my last question     .

The IP-M and IP-S are both Step/Dir, the IP-A is analogue. Of the 3 my choice would be the IP-A but it is more expensive than the IP-M and slightly more than the IP-S.

You would use the analogue input (+/- 10v) and also use the encoder outputs to pass on to the IP-A so that it knows the position.

Before making my purchase how I can test manually or with a very small electric scheme to turn my engine  for both options Step / dir and analog .... just to make sure that both options works work ...

A final issue which auto-check tools you propose me to buy ...   i see this but is very poor     http://www.ebay.com/itm/CNC-Router-MACH3-Engraving-Machine-Tools-Auto-Check-Instrument-/321113660003
   ... do you know best tools ...

You can easily check the speed control by applying a voltage to the corresponding terminals. You can make up a battery box which basically consists of a 9v battery and a potentiometer. The potentiometer allows you to vary the voltage from 0v to 9v and thus you can test things out.
 Step/Dir is not so easy, you would have to get a way of supplying a pulse to the Step input on the drive, you could possibly connect up to a parallel port  and use Mach to generate the pulses.

Regarding the tool setter, I have never used one so cant advise I am afraid.

i can use function generator tools  to do pulses
