This kit includes everything you need for smooth, powerful CNC motion control of your 4-axis or dual-drive 3-axis machine!
The perfect setup for rack and pinion or other dual-drive machines, this bundle features a set of components designed and tested to work together for great machine performance.
The Ethernet SmoothStepper is our preferred solution for the ideal CNC controller experience, and we strongly recommend including it with this CNC electronics kit.
In addition to enabling the use of Mach3
with any modern PC/laptop that lacks a parallel port or runs a current 64-bit version of Windows, the Ethernet SmoothStepper provides a more reliable and robust communication path between your PC and CNC electronics.
It solves or greatly reduces most potential Windows-related communication issues by providing a dedicated real-time DSP (digital signal processor) to handle the precise timing of step and direction signals, and supports up to (3) 25 pin ports worth of IO (simulating 3 parallel ports).
The Optional Ethernet SmoothStepper Kit includes:
- Ethernet Smoothstepper
- Ethernet Panel Mount Extension
- Male DB25 to Female LPH26 Ribbon Cable
- 5V/4A 12V/1A Dual Switching Power Supply
If you are looking for a turn-key CNC electronics solution, our Plug and Play NEMA 23 CNC Control System
is a complete, pre-wired system installed in an industrial steel NEMA enclosure, and offers significantly upgraded components and expanded capabilities.
