G100, G101 could somebody help me?
« on: July 10, 2006, 08:44:18 AM »
Hi guys, could someone explain how the G100 or G101 works?
My understanding is as follows: the G100/G101 is basically the controller that connects to all the drives, inputs & ouputs.
Then the computer (Mach3) connects only to the G100/G101, and sends signals only to the G100/G101.
Then the G100/G101 sends out the correct signals to the drives, or outputs. (I'm guessing it's basically another brain to speed things up)
I saw it mention that the G100/G101 has USB & an ethernet connection, so how does the Mach software communicate, I thought it only worked via the printer port.
My head hurts.................Please let me know if I'm WAY off........

The printer port is not used if you are running the Grex :) The signals com out of the Grex to the drives  and if you are not going build a board to you will need to go with the G100 :)
Fixing problems one post at a time ;)
