Mach3 USB+ETHERNET Dual Interface 6-Axis Motion Board(EDG381)[ENGLISH]


THIS is a 6 axis Mach3 USB+Ethernet dual interface board(EDG381) worked with Mach3.

Download: Installation Manual, Plugin, Schematic



Ethernet (using TCP/IP) or USB Full-speed connection.

100M Ethernet interface, built-in network transformer isolation, support long-distance wired connection. With the wireless router, the wireless connection between the PC (laptop) and the motion control board can be realized.

Up to 6 axes, 500kHz pulsing engine, which is suitable for the servo or stepping motor.Any axis can be configured as a Step/Dir Spindle.

Support slave axis (dual side motor drive: dual X/Y/Z), support home automatic leveling (dual side home switch).

2 real-time Manual Pulse Generation(MPG) input ports for 2 MPG at the same time. When the MACH3 MPG is set in the multi-step mode, it has the same real-time performance as the CNC machining center, smoothly. The control board has no delay and the mechanical system performance is fully utilized.

18 general-purpose input, with particular indicators, the input signal states can clearly shows.

 8 general-purpose output, It can be configured as: spindle clockwise / CCW / Mist / Flood / VB script programming control.

PWM signal spindle control or Step/Dir signal spindle control.

2 analog input ports for adjusting the machining speed / jog speed / spindle speed.

Status indicator LED can be useful to show the USB/Ethernet connection, and working stauts by flashing.

6 high-speed optocouplers(Dual Channel) with 10MHz, 28 general optocouplers for isolating all of the input/output signals, this high-cost design can be provided high performance and stable system.

Fully supporting all Mach3 versions. Supporting Windows series, including Windows XP-Windows10(32bit/64bit).

No need to install any USB drivers, it can be used after plugging in the computer.

Easy firmware update.
