Kstep VB question?

I have done some research on my custom-made CNC system. I found out they connect two 36V 9.7A power supply to KStep J1 input. Although J1 has two VB input, but I assume they are actually shorted on the board. Will this cause any problem? The KStep actually drive 4 step motors. Two are wantai 57BYGH1...

Re: Control KStep output with GCode

Hi Tom, Thanks for your help. I will need time to digest all the information that you provide me. I did some research myself and seems like the question I asked is more related to Mach3 than KMotion. My understanding is first map KMotion I/O to Mach3, and then use Mach3's custom M command with scrip...

Re: Control KStep output with GCode

Hi Tom,

I am confused by the KMotion and KMotionCNC. (I think they are the same thing) So my question is still the same. What G Code can I use in Mach3 to notify KFLOP to toggle the I/O?

Thanks

Re: Control KStep output with GCode

Hi Tomkerekes, Thanks for your reply. I am a newbie on this, so please excuse me if I ask anything stupid. I just found out that in the KMotion Tool setup screen, you can configure M100-199 for custom purpose. I assume this is the way that I should use. As for the PWM, I maybe able to use IO26-33 to...

Control KStep output with GCode

I have a KFLOP & KSTEP HW configuration and I am using Mach3 to control the board. Right now, I am trying to use KSTEP's relay output to control the laser module and wondering how It can be done? Actually, my question is how KFLOP can receive Mach3 GCode command and toggling the the relay output? Al...
