4-Axis DM542T Drivers Host




The most important factor for the reliability of a CNC Controller, which most often determines the accuracy of a CNC machine tool, is the voltage. If the voltage is not constant, during the operation of the machine tool, then the electronic parts of the controller can not perform to the maximum.

The power supplies, which we use to power the electronic parts of the controller, as well as the wiring, play a decisive role in the stability of the voltage. The many cables that must be used to connect the Stepper Drivers to the controller motherboard as well as the power cables are difficult to sort out. They will always touch each other and electromagnetic interference will always be created between them.

After experiments with electromagnetic shielded cables, twisted pair cables, ferrites, capacitors, inductors, etc. we came to the conclusion that the best way to eliminate electromagnetic noise inside the controller is to use less and shorter wires.

That's why we developed the 4-Axis DM542T Drivers Host, a DM542T stepper driver hosting board, which replaces the cabling needed to connect the stepper drivers while ensuring that the Step and Dir circuit always follows the shortest path from the controller's motherboard to the stepper drivers.

The 4-Axis DM542T Drivers Host will be included to the 4-Axis CNC controllers we will build from now on.

End of Support for the "classic" GCode Sender

The course of SourceRabbit GCode Sender began in 2015 when Nikos Siatras ( GitHub , Twitter ), CEO of SourceRabbit, decided to build the controllers of the company's CNC machines, on the GRBL firmware. From 2015 until 2021, the GCode Sender was improved and acquired new features that were fully compatible with the CNC machines we manufacture. At the beginning of 2021 we started to build a new multi-axis software, GCode Sender 4-Axis , which replaced the "classic" GCode Sender and which we will fully support from now on. The source code of the classic GCode Sender will remain available on GitHub for everyone who wants to see or use the code but unfortunately we will stop supporting it.

SprutCAM 4-Axis GRBL Post Processor for Free

We have developed our own post processor for SprutCAM software, which is fully compatible with our SourceRabbit GCode Sender. Since today (2021-04-20) you can download the SprutCAM 4-Axis GRBL post processor for free from our website's downloads section. You can find the SprutCAM 4-Axis GRBL post processor under the Help Section on our website

GCode Sender 4-Axis Launched

After our engagement with GRBL for ESP32 we decided to expand the capabilities of our GCode Sender and create a new control software for 4-Axis CNC Machines. Our new GCode Sender 4-Axis , which is now available for purchase through our website, replaces our old 3-axis software, is fully compatible with the classic 3-Axis GRBL for AVR, the new Grbl_Esp32 and of course the SourceRabbit 4-Axis CNC Motherboard . We plan to implement many new tools and features to the GCode Sender 4-Axis. On our next update we will add a new better User Interface (UI). Stay tuned.
