Ethernet SmoothStepper Mach3/4 6-axis CNC controller and its features

The Ethernet SmoothStepper is a motion control controller made in the USA. It accepts commands from programs such as Mach3, Mach4, and produces high-quality pulse trains to control the speed and direction of rotation of stepper/servo motors. Allows control of up to 6 axes.

  • It uses Ethernet
  • It generates pulses with a frequency of up to 4 Mhz.
  • Compatible with Mach3 and Mach4 (recommended)
  • It has 51 I/O

In order to operate the Ethernet SmoothStepper, we additionally (not included in this offer) need an Ethernet cable, a 5VDC power supply and a 26-pin flat cable.

To protect the board from external influences, it is recommended to pass the input and output signals through the expansion board. With the purchase of an Ethernet SmoothStepper board, we include it free of charge 6-axis CNC splitter plate with a suitable flat cable
