Question #: 15549

Question: When you are talking about relatys, that is all Greek to me. Will a breakout board do what I need to hook up to my drivers?

Current Solution

Connecting drivers from a controller to the driver does not require relays. A controller typically has pins or terminals for Step and Direction. These terminals connect to the driver's Pulse and Direction terminals. For instance for the X axis: if you are connecting from the Mach3 USB controller, you would connect the XD (X axis Direction) terminal to the Driver's DIR+ terminal, and the XP (X axis Pulse) to theDriver's PUL+ terminal, and the GND from the controller to the PUL- and DIR- terminals.

I have thorough step by step instruction for two controllers:
