Hi Rene,

I believe what you're after is a relay box to switch these items on and off via Mach 3 on your PC? Here's a great tutorial on how to make such a box:

Hope that helps- :)

Hello

you need to configure in the menu Ports and pins the Output signals section first.

In Output 1 (for On-Off Router) give the pin number of the hobbycnc card (1.14.16 or 17)
in output 2 (one of the 3 ports possible)

I considered that you have the right interface (solid state relay, or mechanical relay)

After you need (in the same menu) Spindle Setup, indicate for Clockwise and CCW the
Output # 1.
The same is to do for the flood.

I hope that can help you,

Fabrice

Hi,

Thanks for your help, Fabrice and Dave.

I have the idea more and less near about what must i do for this, I don't have a realy box, I saw the pe page http://www.cartertools.com/tbbrb.html, is a great and easy solution
but now my problem is  how to get the 2ea Crydom D2425 Solid State Relay

I live in Cuba and maybe this model is imposible to buy here, I need if you can sugest me some equivalents
or the especifications to this solid state relay, and  is factile use some one from discard equipment?

Thanks in advance for your help.
