Question #: 15414

Question: [Mach3 USB Interface Board] buen dia puedo obtener una salida pwm sin conectar los 10v?

Current Solution

La entrada de 10v sirve como voltaje de referencia en el extremo superior de un rango PWM. Los 10V son necesarios para que el PWM funcione correctamente.

  • [575] Can it make the spidle control PWM to a VFD witch 5 V input

    In theory, utilizing a 5V reference in the 10V terminal of the Mach3 USB controller should yield functional results, although I haven't personally tested this configuration. If you possess an oscilloscope, you can monitor the PWM signal to verify whether the AVI output achieves a peak 5V PWM square wave.

  • [575] How is the bit-resolution on the PWM output for the spindle control? (8-bit or higher?)

    I am not sure of the resolution for the PWM output for spindle speed control. However, if you are worried about getting the exact speed you need, 8-bit will provide 256 levels of increments. This translates roughly to a change of 94 RPM from one increment to another. Remember to provide some inductance and shielding to the signal lines so you won't get fluctuations in speed.

  • [575] How do I get the USB Driver to work with Mach3 Version 1.84

    What problems are you experiencing?

    Additional Information:
    Are you able to install a newer version of Mach3? If you are worried that your configuration will be lost, you can save the configuration by copying all of the XML files from the Mach folder. The XML files contain all of the settings that you applied in Mach3. Just in case the XML files are not compatible with the new version, make sure not to erase the current Mach3 that you have on the machine.

  • [575] Does this motion controller support Backlash Compensation?

    This controller lacks the capability for backlash compensation. While software or signal-based adjustments are feasible, they are far from optimal if the controller natively supports backlash compensation. The most effective way to address backlash is through the mechanical components of the machine itself.

  • [575] Instructions read 24v on the card, can it support 36vdc ?

    The power supply that is used to power this controller must be 24VDC maximum. Any higher voltage and the controller components can be damaged. The 24VDC power supply doesn't need to be a high amp power supply. I would recommend This power supply: https://buildyourcnc.com/item/electronicsAndMotors-power-supply-24v-1a-dc

  • [575] Hey friend have problem outups is always high m3 m5 not work

    Check that the port number in the outputs tab for the specific output you are using is set to port 3. Also, make sure you are wiring the output as shown in the outputs video below:

  • [575] can we use two MPG for two axis independant axis movement

    You can use two MGPs (bare MPGs) to provide independent axis control. The handwheel input on this controller contains discrete inputs for the X, Y, Z, and A axes. These inputs can receive a pulse to move their axis. For instance, you can connect an MPG to the X-axis pin and the wheel will move the X-axis only.

    Of course, if you have a traditional pendant, you can move any axis independently from only a single wheel with a switch that selects the axis you wish to move.

  • [575] I cannot get the limits to work I’m normally open as you state

    Open the input signals dialog box by clicking on config, then ports and pins, then input signals. For each line item that you use (i.e. x++, y--, etc) make sure the port number is 3.

    Also, make sure there is a 24v power supply connected to the DCM and 24V terminals. One side of the NO on the limit switch must connect to the DCM, or the power supply V- terminal.

  • [575] Does the USB MACH3 controller support Sherline 1/2 pulse mode?

    The Mach3 100 kHz controller may be able to support the Sherline 1/2 pulse mode, but I have not tried it. There is no information in the documentation that is related to the parameter that can be set in Mach3 for the Sherline 1/2 pulse mode. You may be able to play with the available kHz ranges that the plugin allows to see if there is a pulse width that meets the Sherline 1/2 pulse mode specification.

  • [575] Why is a second PSU necessary for the limit switch and e-stop ?

    Because the USB board is powered by USB (+5VDC) from your PC. Your inputs (eg. limit switches) require up to +36VDC to operate properly.

  • [575] Hello. Does this USB interface board thc? I have the proma 150.

    I do not recommend using the Mach3 USB controller to be used with a torch height controller. There are only 4 inputs on the Mach3 USB controller. We have tried to interface a Proma THC to this board without success; however, we did not exhaust all possibilities.

    I would recommend the Pokeys57CNC controller to connect the Proma THC as I have interfaced these two before and they work well together.

  • [575] Will this work with Mach4. I,m thinking to upgrade from Mach3.

    The Mach3 USB will not work with Mach4. Consider the Pokeys57CNC controller instead. The Pokeys57CNC controller will work with Mach3 or Mach4 and contains more features than most CNC machines need, including 8 motor outputs, 4 onboard relays, limit home and probe inputs, galvanically isolated outputs, and much more.

  • [575] Could thi board be used for a plasma cutter with THC?

    I have had no success with this controller paired with a THC
    (Torch Height Controller) for plasma cutting. I would instead recommend the pokeys57CNC controller and the PlasmaSense and PlasmaSensOut THC controllers.

  • [575] Is there any information on connecting and setting up a pendant.

    I would recommend using a wireless pendant, like here: https://amzn.to/49nAjkg (Affiliate link)

    I use this pendant on my machine and works quite well. If you have communication issues from the pendant to the dongle, there may be too much interference surrounding the dongle, and exposing the internal antenna works well. This is something I needed to do.

  • [575] Hi, Can I use this board with a closed loop stepper?

    Yes, this CNC controller can be used with closed-loop stepper drivers and motors. The loop for control and feedback is between the driver and the motor. The closed-loop driver receives step and direction signals, which this controller will output which furnishes the driver with the necessary signals to move the motor. Additionally, the closed-loop driver can output a fault signal to this controller through the controller's input terminals in case the motor should encounter a situation that prevents the motor from moving so the CNC can shut down.

  • [575] does the mach3 usb interface board support the M11/M10 command set?

  • [575] Will this board operate a laser cutter and engraver

    You can adapt the Mach3 USB controller to control a laser, but I would not recommend it. A traditional laser controller that is designed to control a laser is far better since you can take advantage of more sophisticated features like sweep for engraving, and automatic adjustment of laser intensity for acceleration and deceleration. The Mach3 USB controller can move the axes and turn the laser on and off, but intensity control and engraving are not an option.
