SmoothStepper - USB

USB to Dual Parallel Port (LPT) Adaptor

SmoothStepper

Many modern PCs no longer include a Parallel Port (also known as an LPT port, or Printer Port).

Standard USB to Parallel Port adaptors (designed for use with printers) do NOT work with Mach3.

SmoothStepper is the solution for those who want to use Mach3 on a PC without a Printer Port.

Now you can use Mach3 to run your CNC machine from almost any PC – including a laptop!

Maple Leaf DashX is the authorized Canadian distributor of Warp9's Smooth Stepper. We ship anywhere in Canada and Worldwide!

We also offer all the accessories you need to get up and running, with a new SmoothStepper, right out of the box!

Upgrading to a SmoothStepper from a parallel port is amazingly straight-forward:

  • Install the USB driver (Windows 8) (Windows All Other)
  • Install the Mach Plug-in
  • Plug in the USB cable
  • Plug your old printer-port cable into the SmoothStepper
  • Choose the settings that match your setup in Mach
  • Start Cutting!

 

Specifications:

  • 1 USB Connection provides complete control of all ports
  • 2 Parallel Ports
  • 1 Encoder Input Port
  • Output/Input  Configurations:
    • 16 Out +24 In
    • 24 Out +16 In
  • Full Spindle Control (PWM/Step-Dir)
  • Dedicated hardware produces pulse streams up to 80 times faster, and with more precise timing than Mach3 using a legacy printer port
  • Windows XP, Vista, Win7 (32/64bit), and Win8 compatible
  • Download the full Manual
  • Download other versions of the Mach3 plugin
