While the SmoothStepper is available as a bare board this is often not a very convenient way to add one to an existing system. Proper installation typically involves things like rewiring, panel modifications, etc. This can lead to a lot of downtime and frustration while getting things hooked up correctly.
For this very reason, we designed the Soigeneris SSECN-2 to make the process a simple ‘plug-and-play’ procedure that allows you to be up and running quickly with all the advantages of fast and accurate hardware step pulse generation for Mach 3.
The Soigeneris SSECN-2 is a small, heavy duty, aluminum enclosure that houses a SmoothStepper, a 5V power supply and associated parts. Ports 1,2 & 3 from the SmoothStepper board are brought out to the rear panel in the form of DB25 ‘parallel port’ style connectors, and the Ethernet connector is readily available. You simply need to connect an Male to Male parallel port style cable between the SSCEN-2 port and your machine’s control.
The Emergency stop button controls power to the AC outlet. This can be used to power small CNC controllers drawing less than 8A. It can also be used to trigger a contactor/safety relay for a larger CNC machine when properly wired into your machine by a knowledgeable professional. A female IEC cord is required which is available as an option.
