Controlling a SuperPID w/ Galil 1842 and Mach3
« on: September 06, 2015, 02:14:36 PM »

Could anyone direct assist me in determining if a Galil card under Mach3 control can output a PWM signal in the 0-5VDC range? I need to control my router spindle and I am using a SuperPID v2; it requires an enable, digital signal, and a PWM signal to set the speed. I also would like to read the index pulse as a input. I used Mach3 to control my motors with a parallel port, and this was working fine.
I recently added the Galil card, and have all 3 axis functions working fine; all inputs are being read. Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks,
Karl

Unfortunately, it is not possible to run a PWM spindle with the Galil plugin.
