The MachForWin64 Kit Mach PluginIn order to interoperate with Mach3, the MachForWin64 Kit includes a plugin that must be added to Mach. The CD that comes with your kit includes an installer for the plugin. If you have either misplaced your CD, or want to update to a newer version of plugin, you can download the installer here.
NEW: We have just released a new revision of the Ethernet Breakout Board in the MachForWin64Kit.
This new version, REV C, is not backwards compatible with the old board due to the addition of new output pins. As such, you must use plugin version 2.0 or later with a REV C board. If you have a REV B board, you should continue using the latest 1.x plugin. You can figure out which board you have by looking at the text near the ethernet port, which should say "S3EBB REV B" or "S3EBB REV C".
Plugin (for REV C boards): Version 2.1
User Guide: Version 2.0
Changes in the latest version (2.0 and 2.1):
- This plugin requires a REV C version of the breakout board. The old REV B version will not work with it. Those with a REV B board should continue using the lastest of the 1.x plugins.
- Full soft limits support is now available. As you approach your soft limit while jogging, the axes will slow down over the Slow Zone range set in the Homing/Limits dialog.
- Pins 6, 7, 8 and 9 on port 2 are now usable as outputs.
- Version 2.1: If the connection to the board is lost you now have the option to reconnect to the board without having to restart Mach.
Old Plugin, for REV B boards: Version 1.2
