Configure C25S with ESS Smoothstepper

Two Y drivers, C slaved to Y2

I  have the Smoothstepper set up and the C25S card arrived today.

My problem is that the C25S board manual or site doesn’t include the configuration of the C25S to the drivers.   The wiring diagram that they show in the manual doesn’t match the C25S board.  I have left three messages on their phone, but I guess the virus or something has them shut down.   Also Posted on their forum a few days ago without any reply.

The only response I got back was that the back row of pins is exactly the same as the front row, that’s true except for some 5V and Ground pins are not in the same location on the front and back rows.

I need to know how to configure my four drivers X, Y1, Y2, and Z. Where Y2 is slaved to C.

C axis is slaved to Y2

I’m guessing that the numbered pins on the C25S board can be step or direction either on, as the pins are defined in the Ports and Pins.  Is that correct?

The “PORT” in ports and pins, on the C25S board the front row of pins, are they PORT1 and the back row of pins, are they PORT 2?
