THIS is a 3/5 axis Mach3 USB interface board(NPN) worked with Mach3.
Download: Installation Manual, Plugin, Schematic
USB Full-speed connection.
Up to 5 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.
16 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 connection, and working stauts by flashing.
5 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.
Provide a complete installation manual, illustrated, detailed description.
