Pul and Dir pins short
« on: September 12, 2018, 06:48:51 AM »
Hello

I have a USB mach3 board. Recently I have started facing the issue, that the Pul and Dir pins for the X, Y and Z axis are short on the board. Also the A axis pins are not short. Is this how it is supposed to be or is my board messed up.

Note: I am only using the X, Y and Z axis for my CNC

Thank You

Hi,
how do you mean 'short on the board'?

They shouldn't be like that. Without manufacturers support who knows.
I have recommended to you before to buy a recognized brand....I do so again.

By short i mean that they are continuous. I tested it out with a multimeter. And as far as a different board goes, I am stuck with this one currently. If it turns out to be completely hopeless, then I will be moving onto a different board.

SO if we tell you it is completely hopeless, will you move onto a reliable board right now instead of fighting this one?

FYI, it is completely hopeless!

We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.

Hi Fusco96,
I hope I din't drive you away with my sense of humor!

All kidding aside, having gone down the road of using some of the less desirable boards, we are trying to save you a lot of pain and time.

I am a big fan of the Hiconn, although some people balk at the price. I now have a Pokeys 57CNC which I like. There are others as well.

The theme here is to do your research first and then buy something that will give you what you want for years to come.

I think Fusco96 is made of tuff stuff but you were a bit hard on him Mike.  :)
