Pokeys57E and one motor
« on: June 06, 2018, 07:02:17 PM »
I am using Pokeys57e and measuring very nicely from 4 analogue pressure sensors in Mach4
Now I would like to add a single stepper motor but it needs to be a rotatory axis.
I also have available CNC4PC C62 board and the BOB to interface the Pokeys57e to the C62.

It seemed that the Pokeys57e could control a motor but I cannot get it to work.  I am using
Mach4, a Gecko drive.  I tried to setup using the Configuration in Mach4 for Pokeys
but every time I try to turn motor control, the GUI crashes.

Should I just connect the 57e up to the C62 etc?

Thanks

Got is working great except for homing with Arturo's help at CNC4PC.
