Digital Dream EC300 4 Axis 300Khz CNC Motion Controller for Mach3 Software. The EC300 is a high-performace external motion controller for Mach 3 software, with ethernet interface, supporting standard MPG and Digital Dream MPG. The device can communicate with a connection to a control computers network. The network connection can be built with direct connection or via router/Swith devices. The computer connects to the EC300 via a standard Ethernet cable.
The maximum length for a USB cable is 5 meters, and that is pushing it in a noisy working environment. Another advantages is that Ethernet uses transformers for coupling the data signals, which galvanically isolates the computer from the downstream electronics.
The device can be used to control machine tools with stepper or servo motor controls with pulse and direction interfaces;the controller can output a maximum of 300kHz stepping frequency for each axes and can work with upto 6-axes. The Controller is 3-6 Axis for users options. This users guide describes how to establish connection between the device and controler computer, the device and stepper/Servo drives and spindle motor, how to setup the LAN network and the device for the communication. 1 Motion control 3-6 Axis(X, Y, Z, A, B, C) for option, max frequency output 300Khz/Axis; Ethernet Connection with Mach 3 Software; Main power supply 24VDC, Current should higher than 1A; IO Power is 24VDC power supply input, current should higher than 1A. ; 12 opto-isolated digital input ports, 10 opto-isolated digital output ports; 1 analog output port of 0-10V adjustable speed for spindle (can change to PWM output port); ARM motion control chip; Compatible with Standard MPG and also Digital Dream MPG.
Beside the main products, in our package, there are accesories:1pcs 1.5meter Ethernet cable. The EC300 motion controller is with the sealed shell structure, there are 4pcs mounting holes around the controller. We can fix 4pcs 4mm diameter holes at the cabinet, and install the controller into the cabinet. EC300 Front size:171mm106mm32mm Installation Dimensions:119mm116mm. The following drawing shows the main connections of our device.
We will descrip one by one in next pages. Here are: 1 : Ethernet Communication Interface to PC 2 : Stepper/Servo motor Driver connection port 3 : Spindle Control Output Port 4 : Gerneral Output Interface 5 : MPG Connection Port 6 : Functional Switch for MPG:Standard MPG or Digital Dream MPG 7 : Serial Extend Port 8 : Input Port:Limit/Home/Probe and so on 9 : Adjustable parameter Input Port 10 : Main System and IO Power Port.1 Ethernet Communication Interface to PC. To setup the network on the computer side there are two ways for our device. A Setup with direct connection to a LAN network card. Firstly connect the EC300 controller to PC by the ethernet cable. Please note that for this action to work the user must have administrator rights in Windows account. Control Panel-Network and Internet -Network Connections. Pls remember to shut down the firewall of the computer before the connection. B Setup with connection via switch/router. 2 Stepper/Servo Motor Control Interface Connection. The device can be used to control machine tools with stepper or servo motor controls with pulse and direction signals. The option for users is 3-6 axis. 3 Spindle Control Output Port. 3 terminal block is for Spindle control output. We define the interface from left are COM-, VSO, COM-, OUT1, OUT2, OUT3, OUT4, OUT5. They are Ground of output, Speed adjusting voltage, Ground of output, Digital output1, Digital output2, Digital output3, Digital output4, Digital output5. VSO connects to Speed adjustment which defined by voltage 0-10V. Spindle speed and current spindle speed is as below: VSO(Output Voltage)=10current spindle speed(S)/Maximum Spindle SpeedMax. For example if we set the Max Speed is 24000, and we need the current spindle speed is 18000, then VSO=1018000/24000=7.5V. General output interface is a DB15 port, and we also show you the OUTPUT port internal structure. The general output interface has a built-in relay drive circuit, which can be directly connected to less than the 100mA relay. Reference Picture 5-6 for wiring with relay, using output 4Pin No. By the connection method of Picture 5-6, it is the controller supply the power for the Output Ports. If the users want to supply the external power for the relay, then the connection is between GND(Pin1) and Output4(Pin2). 5 Function Switch for MPG and Connection for MPG. 6 is the switch for the options of two type MPG. For EC300, it can supply both standard MPG and NV-MPG which is made by our company Digital Dream.
5 is the interface for the connection of MPG. The difference connection for Standard MPG and NV-MPG is from the Pin 1 and Pin 2. Pls check the following table.
Pls dont also forget when you need standard MPG turns the switch to STD, and when you need NV-MPG, switch it to NV. Then wiring the connections of MPG interface. 7 port is Serial extend port. The interface is mainly used for extended serial devices, such as IO extensions or HMI interface extensions. 8 position is for Input ports.They are the optical isolated Input interface. The Definition from left to right is COM-, IN01, COM-, IN02, COM-, IN03, IN04, IN05, IN06, IN07, IN08, IN09, IN10, IN11, IN12, COM+. Internal structure see as Picture 5-12. 2 lines Proximity Switch/ordinary fretting switch / drawing see as Picture 5-13. 3 lines Proximity Switch connection Picture 5-14 and Picture 5-15, brown cable for Proximity switch connect with COM+, Black cable connect channel, blue cable connect with COM.
Pls note Only support NPN typel 3 lines proximity switch. 9 is for adjustable input interface, which must be operated by the digital potentiometer.
The interface will make us to operate the FRO, SRO and SJR very Easy and convenient. The Interface should be operated with position switch and digital potentiometer, for the FRO, SRO and SJR adjustment. 10 LEDs Indicator for Power and communication with Mach 3 software. There are 3 Indicator LEDs for the controller power, IO Power and communicaiton with Mach3 respectively.
If the controller and IO power supply are configurated in right way, the Main Power LED and IO Power LED turn to Red. The LED marked CONN represents the status of the communicaton with Mach3 software. If a link has not been established, the LED will not light. If the user install the Mach 3 software in C-disk.2 Choose the right PlugIn file in the Mach3 software. Pop-up the plug-in box as below left picture. If you do not want to the dialog box to show again any more, select Dont ask me this again. If connect successfully, Status bar will show EC500 device is connected to your computer.
Then you can configurate the other parameters and start to run digital dream EC500 Motion Controller. We have strong technology Team to supply the after-sales service for customers.
