The SmoothStepper is a motion control device that connects to the USB port of a computer running Windows. It accepts commands from Mach3 CNC software, and produces very high quality pulse trains that drive step & direction motors.

Features Specs Support
The Board now comes mounted in a 3D Printed box (colour varies) with 1 cable for the output of Port 1(see ptCableDB25-IDC26), which is all that is required for our routers. The box has rubber feet and a window to view the LEDs
Cable to go from the board Port 2 to a Parrallel socket (DB25) is available seperately (Part ptCableDB25-IDC26)

Setup Notes:
Go to the website and go to software and download the driver for your version of Windows. This drives the main board functions
You will also need to install the driver for the chip which runs the USB port. For Windows 8 this is SmoothStepper_v17fd (March 2014). Only once this driver is installed will Windows see the board. When you start Mach3 it will then ask you whether you wish to use Parrellel Port or the Smooth Stepper. This first time Mach3 will say it has no info and ask to load defaults - please do so. You can now use Mach3 to talk to your router the same as if you have a Parrallel port connection.
