Ethernet Smooth Stepper Motion Control Board
Ethernet Smooth Stepper Board
The Ethernet SmoothStepper is an external motion control device that connects to the Ethernet port of a computer. It accepts commands from a software package such as Mach3 or Mach4, and produce very high quality pulse trains that drive step & direction motors.
Works through Ethernet. Connects to the Ethernet ports or LAN router so there is no need for a PC with parallel ports. It emlates3 parallel ports.
Generates pulse rates of up 4Mhz.
Works directly with Mach3 and Mach4.

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
- Why use Ethernet Connection for my Motion Controller?
The Ethernet Connection has many advantages over USB. It is more reliable as Ethernet runs a client-server connection, while USB runs as a Windows Device. If there happens to be any glitch in the communication, you can lose the USB d...
- How fast does my Motion Controller need to be?
You can estimate the appropriate speed requirement for your motion controller by understanding how fast you need your pulse stream to be. You will need to balance axis travel speed and the step resolution or length of each step in actual machi...
- Should I use an External Motion Controller running in real-time for my CNC?
The main advantage of using an external motion controller is that runs all the function in a real-time environment. So many functions, like homing, reading an encoder, threading, probing, etc., are tied to the exact time in which they occur. I...
- Should I use the C76 with the UC300ETH or C82 with the Ethernet Smooth Stepper for my Plasma?
You can use the C76 or C82, it is a matter of preference. They both work with Mach4. I will try to summarize the basic considerations: The UC300ETH may provide additional flexibility as it can also support UCCNC in addition to Mach3/4. It also depends...
- Is the ESS included with the C25XP?
Yes, you can choose to add it or not on checkout to give the option to users who already own an ESS to get the board without purchasing an ESS again. If you purchase it as a bundle, it will come with the ESS preinstalled.
