FEATURES

Monitors E-Stop, Safety Charge Pump, and Drivers (it only monitors
(G320/340 drives at this time)

Microcontroller Based System.
The microcontroller based system allows the implementation of complex
algorithms for monitoring the system. It also allows the possibility of having
firmware upgrades without having to change the board and rewire your system.
On-Board Relay for controlling external devices.

The board comes with an on-board relay that allows you to enable a breakout board, a
contactor, a motor, or any other device. Multiple relays could be connected externally in
parallel if you need to control different signals and currents. For example, you might
need to use the external signal to enable a breakout board, then you need another
signal to enable a contactor, and then another relay to interrupt the line that powers a
motor.

Status LEDs on all inputs and output connections.
No more guessing. You can SEE all your signals. Save valuable time and brainpower
for CNCing.

All TTL +5vdc or .3vdc Signals. Interface directly with parallel port interface
products and other cnc4pc.com cards. 5VDC (TTL) signals are very common
among automation devices.

Screw-On connections for all terminals.
You only have to screw-on the wires to make all your connections.

Flexible design.
It works with cnc4pc’s products, directly through your parallel port, or through
many other parallel port control products.

WARNING
Check the polarity and voltage of the external power source and connect the 5V and
GND. Overvoltage or reverse-polarity power applied to these terminals can cause
damage to the board, and/or the power source.

WIRING
Make sure you send a signal to the e-stop input pin your control software, so it becomes aware
of the e-stop condition. Please note the sample wiring diagram bellow.

BOARD DESCRIPTION
Power input connectors: Provide a [email protected] power supply to power the board.
Input signals connectors: In order to take the board to activate mode, the following
conditions must be met:
1. THE TERMINALS MUST BE ACTIVATED WITH A HI OR +5VDC. The pin to the right has +5vdc
and the input pin is to the left. A NC (Normally Closed) switch should be used.
2. THE SAFETY CHARGE PUMP SIGNAL MUST BE PRESENT (If this feature is enabled with the
DIP switch selector).
3. THE START SWITCH MUST BE CLOSED FOR AT LEAST 5 SECONDS TO START THE
CYCLE. NOTE: NO (Normally Open) switch must be used
Standby indicator LED: The standby led will light to indicate that the system is ready
but disabled. If the system faults it will light again to indicate that the system is ready to
enable again.

Configuration DIPSWITCH:
DIP 1: Spare
DIP2: Turns on and off the safety charge pump feature.
DIP3 and 4: Selects the driver you will use.
Fault LEDs: When the system stops, the fault indicators will light to indicate what
caused the system to stop.
Status LED indicator: The status LED has three modes:
1. Off when the system is off or in standby mode.
2. Blinking, when the system is coming up.
3. On when the system is active.
The external terminal is the user can install an LED in outside the control box or in the
control panel.
ERR/RES Drivers Connectors: The drivers enable or err/res terminals of the driver
must be connected to this terminal. The pin will behave according the driver to which it
was selected to operate with. If a g320 is selected, the system will not only enable the
drive, but it will monitor it to see if it faults.
External trigger connectors: When the system faults an external activation signal is
sent for 3 second. This is so you can let the controller know that the system has faulted
and it is coming down.
Relay contacts connectors: The relay is so you can use it to enable and disable
external devices. Such as motors, contactors, VFDs, etc...

OPERATION MODES AND PROGRAM SEQUENCE:
During operation the board goes through 3 stages or modes. These are:
1. STAND-BY MODE. When in stand by the board does the following:
User’s Manual
Page 5-2
a. The driver terminals are set into output mode and the board sends a signal to the
drivers in order to disable them.
b. Disables the relay (this disables other external devices).
c. Stand-by LED lights and the STAUS LED is off.
d. The first time the board is turned on all the FAULT LEDs are off. If the board is in
stand-by mode as a result of a previous fault, then a LED indicating the cause of
the fault will light. The possible fault causes are: e-stop, SCHP (Safety Charge
Pump), or driver fault.
e. Sends a ground or 0 to the External Trigger terminal.
f. Monitors the system to see if it is ready to go to START-UP mode. The
conditions to be met for the board go to into start up mode are the following:
i. The board is in Standby mode.
ii. E-stop is closed.
iii. The SCHP signal is present (or disabled).
iv. The START signal is present.
2. START-UP MODE. Once the start-up conditions are met, the board goes into this
mode. This mode takes 5 seconds. If during these 5 seconds any of the conditions
fails, then it goes to back to stand-by mode. This time period is to allow all the systems
to be ready for operation. When in startup mode the board does the following:
a. Monitors that the startup conditions are met.
b. Enables the drivers.
c. Activates the relay
d. The status LED blinks.
e. The fault and stand by LEDs are turned off.
f. Sends a ground or 0 to the External Trigger terminal.
3. ACTIVE MODE. At the end of the 5 seconds when the start up period ends and the
board goes into active mode. If a fault condition appears, the program goes back to
stand-by mode to start the cycle again. These are the actions been performed during
this mode:
a. The driver terminals are switched to input mode and start monitoring the drivers.
b. The system monitors all the conditions for the system to remain active. These
are:
i. The e-stop open. It is left in the air, or receiving a ground.
ii. The SCHP signal is present. (if configured).
iii. The drivers are not sending a fault signal.
c. The STAUTS LED lights.
d. The relay is activated.
e. Sends a ground or 0 to the External Trigger terminal. But if the system faults, a hi
or +5vdc signal is sent for 3 seconds. This is so you can let the controller know
that the system is coming down. This signal can be connected to the controller’s
e-stop or limit input.
f. The system halts for 3 seconds. After these 3 seconds the system could be
reactivated.

CONFIGURING THE CONTROL SOFTWARE
Safety Charge Pump: To enable the safety charge pump, make sure you enable the
feature in Config / Pins&Ports / Output Pins. Enable the safety charge pump and
assign the pin you are going to connect it to, as is shown in the follow Figure. Next,
press the apply button.
If using the external trigger, configure e-stop or assign a limit to the input pin you are
using. This way the control software will be made aware of the fault condition.
Application considerations:
1. Make sure you send a signal to the e-stop pin you have configured in your
control software. You could take it from the same push-button you are using for
e-stop, but if you take it from the on-board relay, then if a servo motor fails, then
the system will let the control software know of the fault condition.
2. If you need to implement more than one external relay, you can use the on-board
relay to drive as many external relays as you need. These external relays could
control the following:
a. The signal that starts your contactor or motors.
b. The EN (enable pin) that enabled the output of breakout boards.
c. Enable or disable other external devices such as VFDs or PLCs.
d. Implementing external lights or LEDs in the control box or control panel
that would inform the user that the system is ENABLED.
e. The power line of a motor.

3. Please note that by connecting the ground of a gecko drive, you are violating
optoisolation of the drive. If you still want the benefit of optoisolation, you can use
an optoisolated breakout board, such as the C1 – Parallel Port Interface Card to
keep your system optoisolated.

CONNECTING EXTERNAL FAULT INDICATOR LEDS
External indicator LEDS can be directly connected to the board without using external
resistors. Just connect them for example how is shown in the follow figure, considering
that the pads marked on the board with a white point correspond to the LED’s anode.
