Plug-And-Play SYSTEM KIT
4 Axis 4.0A Drive System with Four 4.0A 425 Stepper motors.

Four Motor cables (about 6 feet long) are pre-installed and come out the the back. The cables have Molex connectors which mate to the connectors installed on the motors. There is an additional hole on the back panel to allow wiring up limit/home switches, etc. and have them collected in to one place before attaching them to the included Breakout Board(BOB). There are 5 input and 4 output places available on the BOB for adding external I/O (limit/home switches, probes, etc.) to your CNC system. The SYS_KIT itself plays no role (no isolation, buffering or filtering) of the signals, and only provides an easy place to make connection to the parallel port I/O.

After unpacking the SYS_KIT components, you can be ready to spin motors in less than a minute*: Just plug-in the motors to the SYS_KIT cables, connect the parallel port cable to the SYS_KIT DB25 connector and to a suitable PC parallel port running appropriate CNC software, and finally, plug in the AC power and turn on AC power switch on the SYS_KIT.
* assumes your PC software is already setup properly.

On order, shipping labels will be generated through Paypal. Paypal will e-mail you when the labels have been generated. You can also check your Paypal account for the USPS tracking information once the labels have been generated. It is important that your correct address is entered in the Paypal shipping address information block, as items will ship to the Paypal address only.

US Customers:The shipping cost will be $30.00

International Customers: To get a rough estimate of the shipping cost, go to the web site and use their on-line price calculator. Use 21 pounds (lbs) as the weight, and package as the shape, shipped from ZIP code 91320 (if required for the calculation). Choose the Priority Mail International® Options (not the express option)

Canada will be about $84.00US to ship. This does not include any VAT, duties or fees.

The SYS_KIT ships 2-3 business days after ordering.

Used for 4 axis, Dual Screw, Gantry type CNC routers such as the Dave Gatton SidewinderCNC machines or his GarageWorXCNC machines. Depending on where you place the SYS_KIT relative to your machine, you may want to get cable extensions for the motors. Dave or other users on Youtube may have recommendations. Some users end up needing none, while others get 1, 2 or 4 cable extensions.

Users of Mach3 or Mach4, if you have software setup questions, please address them to the Xylotex Forum. Note:Dave uses 10 threads-per-inch, 5 start screws which have 2 turns-per-inch, so the 425s are the better choice. TPI could be threads-per-inch or turns-per-inch so rather than using TPI, just use the whole phrase to avoid confusion.

* 1/16th step (microstep) for smooth, precise motion. This can be changed by the user by adjusting switches on the individual drives.

* Three Built-in Cooling Fans, and extra heatsinks on each drive to ensure cooling when running at full amperage.

* Easy connect for most popular Step/Direction control software such as Mach3/4, LinuxCNC or TurboCNC.

* These 425 motors(.25 inch shafts (double shafted), nema23 mounting holes) are good for 5 turns-per-inch screws and below, or Rack and Pinion or Direct Belt Drive systems.

* The higher higher amperage motors (4.0A) means you can have a faster top end speed compared to lower amperage drive/motor combinations.

The SYS_KIT comes with an IEC 110VAC Power Cord as well as a 3 foot parallel port extension cable to go from the PC to the DB25 connector.

Requires the following pinout setup:

STEP X - Pin 2
DIR X - Pin 3
STEP Y - Pin 4
DIR Y - Pin 5
STEP Z - Pin 6
DIR Z - Pin 7
STEP A - Pin 8
DIR A - Pin 9
The STEP signals are ACTIVE LOW.

Do NOT connect or disconnect motors, fans, etc. when the system is powered.
Do NOT place a fuse, switch, relay or circuit breaker between the motors and the SYS_KIT.
Do NOT connect scopes or any other test devices to the motor leads.
Use the SYS_KIT only with the supplied motors.

* Keep coolant, dust and chips away from the system. Small metallic “dust” and chips can easily be pulled in by a fan and deposited on the drives, shorting them out!
* If you are using a vacuum system, it MUST be properly grounded to dissipate static build-up. This means the inside length of the vacuum hose has a flexible ground wire running the length and grounded at the vacuum motor end!
* The SYS_KIT has nothing to do with I/O signals such as Home Switches, Limit Switches, STOP switches, or relay outputs like spindle or coolant pumps other than to provide a place to connect to the parallel port I/O. All functions are handled through the software such as Mach3/4 or Machinekit
* The sys-kit is designed for standard wood router system. Plasma Systems might require special shielding and grounding that are out of the scope of this setup, and should only be attempted by systems integrators that can set up a systemto keep any stray or induced voltages/current from getting in to the stepper motor system.
