NEW September 2021 - Various Options added read further below for more information.
This new controller has dual inputs and allow the popular Mach3 software to be used via the parallel port and also USB port to control GRBL firmware running on the Arduino Mega2560 board.
So best of both worlds for those wanting to experiment running their machines with different Gcode engines.
More information can be found at
We will be offering various options with the controller board as time goes by.
1.) GRBL/Mach3 breakout board. **In stock** - This includes the Main Board that plugs into your existing Arduino Mega2560, Mach3 Top Breakout Board and Motor Alarm Board with connecting ribbon cable.
We do not supply the Arduino Mega2560 board.
New Options added below
We have now added a range of new optional purchases, up to 6 of each option can be ordered if required.
1.) Closed loop stepper motors.
JMC Integrated Step Motor
IHSS57-36-20 2 Nm Nema 23
The iHSS57-XX Integrate Stepper Servo Motor is merged the stepper servo driver and motor together. This motor system integrates the servo control technology into the digital stepper drive perfectly. And this product adopts an optical encoder with high speed position sampling feedback of 50 μ s, once the position deviation appears, it will be fixed immediately. This product is compatible the advantages of the stepper drive and the servo drive, such as lower heat, less vibration, fast acceleration, and so on.
2.) 8 Core motor cables with JST plug. Available in 3 different lengths: 2M, 3.3M, 4.5M.
These cables have been custom made for the 6-Axis breakout board and have a 8 pin JST plug that attaches to the breakout board one end and stripped/tinned wires the other end.
3.) Limit switch with 3 pin plug and 3 Core Limit switch cable with 3 pin connector and JST plug. Available in 3 different lengths: 3M, 3.5M, 5M.
These cables have been custom made for the 6-Axis breakout board and have a 3 pin JST plug that attaches to the breakout board one end and a 3 pin connector attached that connects to the Limit switches, allowing for easy fitting/removal when wiring.
Please note that we do not supply the controller box or power supply at the moment that is shown in the pictures.
