Works in KCam, Not working in Mach3
« on: February 28, 2007, 05:28:16 AM »
Dear All,

I bought my cnc controller yesterday and i connect everything as in manual. The board works very well in Kcam (Kcam is explained in manual and i configured this program works very well). But i would like to buy Mach3 and so i need to configure it for Mach3. I took this ss from related softwares :

Mach3 : (Not Working)


KCam : (Works well)


So, what's the point? What is wrong with these configuration?

TIA

Cooper

Dear All,

I solved my problem with Sherline 1/2 option.
Thank you for your kind interest.

Dear Brian,

I bought my driver via Ebay. Here is the link :

http://cgi.ebay.com/4-AXIS-CNC-ROUTER-OR-MILL-STEPPER-MOTOR-DRIVER-BOARD_W0QQitemZ230098501074QQihZ013QQcategoryZ78196QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

This driver is based on Allegro A3977 driver chip and it has 6N136 Optocoupler. As you know 6N136 is 1 Mbit/sec opto and quite fast to control signals. I don't know what the problem is but i can use it in Mach3 trial :)

The G201's can have a step pulse that is only 5us long... that is FAST!
