The SmoothStepper is a motion control device that connects to a computer via an ethernet cable.
This is configured via a direct connection, purely as a way of connecting your computer to the board - it can then be configured to connect to a router, switch or other network infrastructure.
Now comes fitted to a 3D Printed Enclosure with Parrallel Port and a USB cable for power. You can use any external 5V power supply to replace that from the USB cable - just open the box an remove the USB cable from the screw terminal plug.
It accepts commands from the Mach3 software package, and produces very high quality pulse trains that drive step & direction motors.
The Ethernet version is less susceptable to electrical noise than the USB version, so it is better for things like controlling the THC (Torch Height Control) on a Plasma cutter
This cable goes from the IDC26 connection on a Smooth Stepper Board to a Female DB25 (Parrallel Cable) connector. These cable can also be found in some older PCs with a parrallel port mounted on a bracket (also known as an expansion header).
