Alpha Stepper and Drive

Postby gregouellette » Wed Mar 15, 2017 4:14 am

I am rebuilding a Powerarm CNC router. this thing is a beast weighs over 1500 lbs.. I am a newbie to this but I understand it
ASD16D-C AlphaStep Closed-Loop Drive and a VEXTA ASM69AC steppers on the Z axis, this replaced the Mitsubishi servo motor and drive.
with the ASM911AC stepper and ASD20A-C drive on the X and Y axis. My issue now is I need to find a breakout board and a smoothstepper so I can use Mach 3.
It is using a 3 hp Portercable route but I want to upgrade to a VFD in the near future.

Any help and input would be greatly appreciated.
