ETH-BOX Motion Controller Based on Ethernet Connection

ETH-BOX is a six axis high performance motion controller for CNC machines designed for use with popular Mach3 control software in Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 operating systems with 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) architectures.

ETH-BOX is based on ETH-MC motion controller and it is designed to enable optimal usage of ETH-MC motion controller features.

Motion controller ETH-BOX is a complete solution that has a large number of detachable connectors for connecting different peripherals according to a specific application requirements.

These peripherals can be:

  • microstep drives for step motors MST-107 and MST-109,
  • drives for DC servo motors DCS-3010(-HV) and drives for DC servo motors with analog output DCS-100-A,
  • drives for step and servo motors from other manufacturers,
  • limit switches (inductive or electromechanical),
  • incremental encoders,
  • potentiometers,
  • THC Sensor etc.

Available outputs

  • 28 general purpose digital outputs, 5V TTL
  • 2 optoisolated digital outputs
  • 4 relays outputs
  • 2 optoisolated analog outputs, 0-5V or 0-10V

Available inputs

  • 12 opto-isolated digital inputs, 24 V
  • 8 differential digital inputs, 5V TTL (optional up to 24 V)
  • 12 general purpose digital inputs, 5 V Schmitt triggers
  • 4 analog inputs, 0-5V
