UC100 USB controller

NOTE!!!!!! STEPCRAFT USERS>>> You need the UC100 + parallel port for the machine interface + UCCNC licensee to control your STEPCRAFT machine with the UCCNC software. The UC100 motion controller is very small addition to your CNC system that has the potential to significantly improve the performance of your setup. The UC100 is Mach3 Compatible and can provide a full USB replacement for your LPT driven system. For example if you are using Mach3 to control your CNC with an LPT port you can simply install the drivers, plugin the UC100 and control the same CNC machine via USB. The UC100 can also be run on UCCNC which is the CNC control control software provided by CNC drive who also manufacture the UC100's.

Component features:
  • Replaces the LPT port.
  • Controls upto 6-axis simulteneously
  • Works with Mach3 software via plugin.
  • Up to 100kHz operation
  • USB connection to the control PC
  • Same pinout as a standard LPT port
  • Fast communication with data buffer for robust and stabile operation
  • The UC100 overcomes the well known issue with using a standard parallel cable and PC LPT output to control a CNC router system. The stepper drives require robust and reliable pulse trains to provide smooth motion. Control pulses with latency and timing issues can cause torque loss and poor performance that can be directly attributed to the LPT connection.
  • The UC100 is in itself a dedicated CNC motion controller. It is far more than a simple USB to parallel converter. Typically when you plug in your LPT cable to the machine it is connected to a breakout board. The UC100 can be plugged directly into the same connection on your machine. Ths UC100 controller distributes the signals to the machine components via the same breakout board that is used for LPT control – drives, relays, switches etc. The result is smoother and more reliable motion when you use the UC100 as the controller is generating the pulses – not the LPT output
  • The UC100 replaces the LPT output and instead the information is transmitted from Mach3 to the UC100 down the USB cable. The USB communication has much better and more reliable operation than the LPT port. The UC100 then generates the pulses for the motors and the signals from the machine.
