Description of the parameter settings :
1. Card Work Status: Indicates the current operational status of the card: idle, processing, or limit stop
2. IO output state: When there is motion control card IO input signal or output signal when the show will be in that
position
- 17 3. Homing Status: Displays the current card is going back to the origin of the X or Y or Z or A axis
4. Homing mode selection: Set the card the way back to the origin
NO HOMING:Prohibit card homing
SINGLE STAGE:Single-homing, when this mode is selected, execution back to the origin, then straight back to the
home position
DUAL STAGE:Dual homing, when this mode is selected, the Executing homing, the home position is reached, it will
roll back an offset, return to origin
5. Homing Offset settings:When you select DUAL STAGE mode, set the offset back
6. Spindle speed settings:When the spindle speed adjustment mode is selected as pulse + direction, set this parameter
indicates that the spindle revolution, the number of pulses required
7. G code buffer time settings: Set G-code buffer time, according to the different PC performance, adjusting this
parameter, it will optimize the processing fluency
8.USB transfer interval setting: According to different computer performance, adjusting this parameter, it will optimize
the processing fluency

1. Block diagram of motion control card
The board is used USB power source, with isolated power source module, external power supply is not requested.
All outputs, including 4 axes pulse/DIR/8 output controls/Spindle-speed PWM output, are set
to be high-impedancestate (Hi-Z) when USB is connected. When running Mach3, Level is controlled by Mach3.
Suggest: All output signals in Mach3 can be set to be Active Low.
