Good God Emily!
You steam train enthusiasts are stark raving mad ...

Impressive thing. I take it one can ride on the carriages at Open Days at the local Club Meets? There's a club nearby which does that, but I suspect theirs is 1/4 scale.

Blimey.

That engine would easily pull a cart with 6-8 adults on plus water and coal around a rally field;)

Rail based stuff is a different scaling designation but just as powerful, steam is a wonderful thing:)

Um - I think theirs is on railway track. They have some permanent ways there.

still waiting for parts but got a reply from Cs-Labs today, they reckon its not the correct way of doing stuff - using an axis input and Mach DRO BUT cant see why it wouldn't work :)

Seems i should be using the ENC module channels 2 or 3 for this.

Will have to see what happens before spending more. Got the linear motion part built and fitted the encoder, just waiting on the line-driver now.

Ok, line-driver IC just arrived, will get it wired tomorrow morning as its stupid-hot in the shop now.

I gather its just inputs on 1A, 2A, 3A and outputs on 1Y/1Z, 2Y/2Z, 3Y/3Z with a 0.1uf on the supply rails?

Ignore the G input which i presume is a gate?
Ignore unused 4th input?

Thanks

From memory you need to connect the G to 5v or the G- to 0v depending on which way you want to have the output with regards the Hi or Lo of the input pulse.

Just don't leave any unused inputs floating.

Ok, so G has to go one way but in this case it won't matter which way ?

And tie unused inputs to 0v.

If you are not using the G outputs ... where input goes does not matter.

Just had another look, there are no G outputs, its internal and used to flip the outputs into a third state of "off", looks like for logical use G needs to go high.
