Configure X and Y Pins and Settings


In Mach3, in the CONFIG menu, under PORTS & PINS

On the Port Setup tab, the kernel frequency can be set at 25,000 HZ and X and Y top speed will be about 700 IPM. I will be using Port 1. If you are using Port 2 you will have to change the port from 1 to 2 in all the pin assignments.

On the Motor Outputs tab set the following (click to enlarge)

In the CONFIG menu under MOTOR TUNING set X and Y as follows (hit save axis settings on each to save changes) - it is worth noting that being able to set acceleration to 100 without any worry is precisely why we like having servos -
