Re: MPU11 and GPIO4D Specific Manual

CNCguy

You are correct the GPIO4D replaces the relay's that drive the contactors not the contactors themselves.

You can find the output relay spec's in the GPIO4D manual I posted earlier in this thread.

3rd party drives velocity or torque mode?

Question: Can the MPU11/GPIO4D Mach kit run third party drives in velocity as well as torque mode?

Answer: Yes you can run in velocity or torque mode with either the Mach3 software or the CNC11 software. Velocity mode allows for smoother motion with lower resolution encoders.

Re: mach3 mpu11 probing

You can wire your probe into DP4 input (IN 14) on the DC3IOB and create a brain in Mach3 software to verify the probe is hooked up right. Use modbus input 14, with bit only checked. This will allow you to see input 14 change when you toggle the probe. Then to do probing or digitizing you will need t...

Re: mach3 mpu11 probing

Adding probing to Mach3 software is something we are looking into, but I don't have a time frame of when it will be added. If you are looking at do probing you can purchase the Centroid software and a DP4 probe and start probing right away.

Re: MPU11 and GPIO4D Specific Manual

I have attached the GPIO4D manual to this posting. Please download and read it over, it should answer all your questions. All the outputs are SPST except OUT 8 and 9 which are SPDT. Yes the GPIO4D will replace your existing contactors, however you will want to add fuses after the output relays for p...
