Breakout Boards

With the current exchange rate we have decided not to bring more boards in from the USA. Information and support for the CNC4PC product is still available on the CNC4PC Breakout Boards page and information will be expanded for reference. In the meantime we have been working to produce products more suitable for the packages we wish to produce. There are a number of new designs in the pipeline, but the first is a breakout board design to dovetail with the CNC conversion kit for the Taig mill.

MEDW0010 Breakout Board

MEDW0010Assembly This board is designed for use with the Chinese stepper drivers which have isolated inputs, so provides level buffering of drive signals. In order to provide a safe interface to the machine, it provides both charge pump and interlocked stop signals to prevent availability of the output drives until both Mach3 and the interface are ready. The board also provides the option for an isolated analogue output to compliment the spindle on/off control. As will be seen from the picture, it is designed to be mounted to the back of a panel, and features an overlay for led designation and stop / reset buttons.
