Galil & Camsoft, looking to convert to Mach so...........
« on: July 20, 2007, 01:59:26 AM »
I converted a machine ages ago (about 5 years) to camsoft, it works o.k, but not hugely reliable.....
I understand the majority of things I may need, I'm just unsure as to whether I can get away with removing the Galil DMC 2162 card I am using with the Camsoft software.
How do I tell if the old stepper drives are/can accept step/direction commands?
I've attached a pic of the ICM 2900 module that is interfaced with them, I was hoping someone could shed some light on the terminals
e.g is the SIGNZ maybe Step and the PWMZ maybe direction or am I so far off it's just not funny anymore?

Well I figured out the step & Direction, it still not very reliable, damn old steppers, I'm upgrading to servo motors and CNC teknix drives.
