MB-02-V6 Bidirectional Breakout Board

US$43.00 Ex GST
US$47.30 Inc GST

The MB-02-V6 is a simple but robust breakout board that provides a convenient and safe way to interface your CNC components to your PC via the parallel port. Additionally the Breakout board may be used to connect your CNC components to a Smooth Stepper or other motion system.

The MB-02 provides screw terminals for all printer port signals. The 5Vdc power for the MB-02 can be obtained from the USB connector, pin 26 of the ICD connector or via the 3.5mm screw terminals.T he form factor of the MB-02 Breakout board PCB has been designed for easy installation. Due to its compact size, it can also be easily installed into CNC controller enclosures. The main features of the MB-02V6 Bidirectional Breakout board are;

  • Small PCB footprint 92mm(L) x 65mm(W) 
  • Four 4mm mounting holes (supplied with matching stand-offs) 
  • Single 5V dc power requirements.
  • USB-B connector can be used to provide 5V supply from PC 
  • Common” supply terminals are selectable as 0V or 5V
  • Pull-up resistors on inputs and outputs ensuring known output/input states
  • Separate Pullups for Inputs, Outputs and D2-D9 pins 
  • Pull-ups voltage selectable between 0V or 5V 
  • Active high and Active low Enable inputs 
  • All inputs and outputs are buffered and capable of supplying 24mA 
  • Inputs can be 3.3V, or 5V logic levels 
  • Parallel port pins D2 - D9 can be configured as inputs or outputs via jumper 
  • DE-25 Female connector and IDC26 header for connection to PC/SmoothStepper. 
  • Designed to work with popular CNC software such as Mach3, TurboCNC, EMC2, etc.
