Gecko G201 settings needed for Mach3
« on: July 01, 2007, 05:53:58 PM »
I am running a controller that has Gecko G201 10 u Step Drives in it.

I am wondering if anyone has any documentation that shows the proper port and pin settings so that it will work with Mach3 ?

I have it all hooked up using my Printer port... however I am not getting any movement on the motors when I try to jog.

So in other words I need all of the settings for the various screens.

I am not using Mach3 to control my spindle motor... that is being handled by an adjustable pot.
Also I don't have any of my limit switches hooked up to this controller.

I am only using the Gecko to control my X-Y-Z Axis motors.

Any help would sure be appreciated.

This is my xml. you can look at for an example. This will only be good for an example. I doubt our wiring will be the same.

;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D
