A CNC USB MACH3 100Khz breakout board is a device that allows you to connect a computer with a USB port to a CNC (computer numerical control) machine. It converts the USB signals from the computer into signals that are compatible with the CNC machine’s motion control system.
The MACH3 software is a popular software package for controlling CNC machines. The CNC USB MACH3 100Khz breakout board is specifically designed for use with this software. It has a maximum pulse frequency of 100kHz, which means that it can send commands to the CNC machine at a rate of up to 100,000 times per second. This makes it suitable for use with high-speed CNC machines, such as CNC routers.
The CNC USB MACH3 100Khz breakout board that you have described is a 5-axis interface, which means that it can control the movement of up to five axes of the CNC machine. It also includes a variety of input and output channels that allow it to interact with other devices, such as limit switches and spindle motors.
In order to use the CNC USB MACH3 100Khz breakout board, you will need to connect it to a computer with a USB port and to the CNC machine that you want to control. You will also need to install the MACH3 software on the computer and configure it to communicate with the CNC machine through the breakout board.
It is important to carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installing and using the CNC USB MACH3 100Khz breakout board in order to ensure proper operation and safety. If you are unsure about any aspect of the installation or operation of the breakout board, you should seek the advice of a qualified CNC engineer.
- Compatible with MACH3 software.
- Support Windows XP, WIN7, WIN8, and WIN10, support tablet computers, as well as 64-bit systems.
- External wide voltage input, 12-24V, and anti-reverse connection function.
- All input signals are isolated by optical coupling, which can be connected to an emergency stop, tool set, limit, return to zero, etc., to ensure computer safety.
- It provides 0-10V analog voltage output isolated by an optocoupler and can control the frequency converter input by the 0-10V analog voltage to control the spindle speed.
- Provide PWM output (5V level) isolated by optocoupler to control other PWM-controlled spindle speed controllers.
- Provide 4 output ports (5V level), which can be connected to a relay module with an optocoupler to control water cooling, spray, etc.
- It can be connected to a stepping motor driver with a common anode or common cathode input, a level of 5V, and an optocoupler input.
- At the same time, a 5-axis interface cable socket (HX2.54) is provided, which is convenient for connecting the stepper motor driver.
- Set the inverter to external terminal start.
- Set the frequency control mode of the inverter to analog (0-10V) input control.
Quickly set up the inverter
- The inverter does not need to be connected to the interface board first.
- Short-circuit the FWD and COM of the inverter, and short-circuit the 10V and VI of the inverter. Connect the spindle. (Of course, it is better to connect the potentiometer to the 10V, VI, and GND of the inverter according to the figure).
- Power on, if the inverter can run at the maximum speed and the spindle rotates normally, it basically means that the setting is correct. (If a potentiometer is used, the speed is adjustable).
