[Home]Stepper Drive Timing

LinuxCNCKnowledgeBase | RecentChanges | PageIndex | Preferences | LinuxCNC.org

This page is for step and direction timing of stepper drives.
The timing info is correct AFAIK.
Please add to this list using the stepconf wizard format and in nanoseconds so it will be uniform.
If you want to add information to this page or add a new page, follow some BasicSteps.
Some boards have know issues see the troubleshooting hardware page Hardware Problems

If your unsure about your drive timing start high like 10000 for each and test. remember that signal conditioning and opto-isolation can increase timing requirements. That's why you need to know the timings for a driver board, not just the step translator chip that is contains. Also notice that some controllers step on the falling edge some on the rising edge. This matters as it will change the timing and will be hard to trace. make sure LinuxCNC follows what the controller expects.

Note 1 if an asterisk precedes the name then the values are not confirmed. If you can confirm the values please do...

Times listed are in nanoseconds (ns). Multiply microseconds (us) by 1000 to get nanoseconds (ns)
