You can make your Xylotex board work with EMC1 by

making a hardware or software change.


To fix in software, edit emc/src/emcmot/emcmot.c and

change #undef XYLOTEX to #define XYLOTEX, then rebuild.

Otherwise, you have to rewire EMC's output to match

the Xylotex:



Emc expects step/dir pins as follows:

pin 2 X direction

pin 3 X step

pin 4 Y direction

pin 5 Y step

pin 6 Z direction

pin 7 Z step

The xylotex expects the following:

pin 2 X step

pin 3 X direction

pin 4 Y step

pin 5 Y direction

pin 6 Z step

pin 7 Z direction

Radio shack part #

rs-232 serial jumper box from Radio Shack, part number 276-1403A



This will allow you to switch the pins around so the xylotex will work

with the EMC software



Solder the input side to the corrosponding output pin:

input / output
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

solder 1 to 1

solder 2 to 3

solder 3 to 2

solder 4 to 5
