The interface module allows the operation of up to four stepper motor or servo output stages with the Beamicon2 CNC software.
A normal network connection with RJ45 cable is used for data transfer from the PC. The 25-pin SUBD connector can be connected to a conventional breakout board, the TripleBeast or any other controller with LPT port, allowing control of up to 4 axes.
Since no parallel port is needed on the PC, the well-known limitations of the step frequency and problems with timing are a thing of the past. All signals are galvanically isolated from the PC, so that a maximum of noise immunity is achieved.
The MicroPod is ideal, if an existing controller, which was previously operated with LPT port, is to be upgraded for the Beamicon2 software with network operation, or if the maximum 4 axes of the breakout board with integrated network interface (NETBOB1) is not sufficient.
The price also includes the software license for teh Beamicon2Basic version.
