I need some help on installing the Acorn board on a Bridgeport EzPath Lathe, I understand that the Acorn board only has one encoder output on the board, I just realized reading on the forum about the hand wheels on the lathe that they have encoders on them also, also mention on the forum was that Centroid has an extension board for 395.00, will that extension board work or what do I need to do to get the encoders to work on the hand wheels is there a cable I need and this board or can they work on the Acorn board? :oops:

Best bet is Oak or All-in-One DC in my opinion.
You can probably "get" this to work, but you'll end up spending more time and money than you want to. AND, it will be a kludge.
Acorn isn't designed for this.
Are the servos DC? If so All-in-One is probably the best option.
