This Ultimate Breakout
Board just made EVERY OTHER BREAKOUT card on the market
9 inputs. All outputs buffered - 8 double buffered, a
ll inputs isolated; all from a Single Parallel
The big problem in the past is a single p
ort BOB left you with 4 axis of S&D, 1 Charge Pump and 3
general purpose outputs (total of 12 outputs). Even
worse, you only had a total of 5 inputs and one of those had to be
E-stop! We solved the problem by building a
PORT S T R E T C H E R! It uses
advanced TDM MUX techniques to STRETCH the lower speed outputs to
8 (and can drive a relay up to 100ma) and still have four full
axis of movement. Even more important, we STRETCHED the
inputs to 9 fast inputs that will work for homes, limits,
probes, sensors or other general input signals. Before, when
you wanted to do extra functions, you had to play games and
string all of the homes and limits together to get more input
pins. The UBOB solves the problem!
Single cable solution.
8 high speed outputs
for S&D. 8 low
speed outputs for general extrernal control. Open
collector buffered outputs for up to 6
relays (in addition to torch relay and direction relay on DTHC or ISS-02 modules).
9 Isolated Fast Inputs for h
omes, limits, probes, external sensors, etc.
Charge pump output.
Charge pump indicator.
Plugs directly into our
MTA150 for interface to various motor driver
Provides clean, buffered (full 5V TTL
logic) signals for Step and Direction with 3 volt inputs.
Board mounted DB25 uses ONE
standard M-F computer cable.
Board mounted serial port (DB9) for pass
through communications to our other smart cards.
Features expansion plug
for Digital Torch Height Controller or Isolated Spindle
Compact SMT design minimizes mounting
footprint to 2.75 X 5.0 square inches.
Uses external +12
Has on-board DC-DC converter for TRUE isolated input (separate from Logic/PC ground).
Only BOB that allows you to hardware slave X or Y to run 5 motors and 4 independant axis.
Hardware polarity (DIR) for slaved axis.
Comes with 25 pin expansion cable
for external I/O (to remote Table I/O card
Available custom mounting plate for mounting in your enclosure (see MP3000 section).
individual cards are offered for sale to allow maximum flexibility
BUT for the normal build the Plug-n-Run controllers are recommended.
They give you all of the cards and cables you need. Expansion
cards can be added later or to provide advanced
features. Some cards are avaialble here as spares or replacement cards for out-of-warranty units.
OPTIONAL EXPANSION CARDS/REPLACEMENT CARDS NOTE: as of 2/25/2012 the UBOB Builders Paks are no longer available. The MP3000-Basic or MP3000E-DTHC II is available in an OEM Builders Version (right angle plate with front panel. It comes assembeld on standoffs with Table I/O, power pak, UBOB III and DTHC II (option) wired and tested, ready to mount in an enclosure. The cards listed below are to expand an existing build or for spare cards for an existing unit.
Cards that give you added
functions or features.
Full Digital Torch Height Control Expansion
this? Because the DTHC is now a tiny plug-in
module you can make ANY UBOB based product into a full blown Digital
Torch Height Control. Comes with a matching THC Sensor Card
for interface to your plasma cutter. NOTE: YOU
CANNOT HAVE A ISS-O2 SPINDLE SPEED AND DTHC-Expansion Module plugged
in at the same time.
With THC Sensor card and
NOTE: There are NO
screw terminals on the UBOB for connection to external signals You
must use the MTA150 card for motor drive interface and the Table I/O
card for connecting any inputs or
The Ultimate Breakout
Card for use with MACH3 Software. Matching plug-in for MACH
and custom driver loads automatically from the Install Disk.
Suddenly you have more inputs and outputs....often enough to keep
from adding a second port. One 25 pin computer cable does all
the work. Unit needs +5 volts referenced to PC Ground and +5
to +12 with separate ground return (floating). Both supplies
500 ma or more. Note: serial port not needed for basic UBOB
operation but is need for expansion products like the ISS-01 and
CARD SOLD FOR REPLACEMENT OR SPARE ONLY. THIS IS NOT A General Breakout Board (BoB) and requires other cards for a complete BoB solution. See the MP3000- Basic.
THC SENSOR REV15
This card was the shipping card with all older DTHC units. It has enhanced balanced Twin-T LC noise filter, improved high voltage tolerance, intergal Arc Gap and input polarity protection.
It is plug compatable with older CandCNC MP1000 THC boxes. Developed to provide reliable operation for HF start and the more difficult High Voltage (CD) start units like the larger ESAB units,
it has proven itself virtually indestructable.
NOTE: THE NEW DTHC II DOES NOT USE THIS CARD. It uses a completely different method of interface to the Plasma Unit. The THC SENSOR REV15 is for replacement of any existing REV 8 - 15 THC SENSOR cards used with the MP1000 or MP3000-DTHC (or LCTHC) products.
Designed to plug into the
UBOB card and mount anywhere from a few inches to several feet
away, it uses conventional relays so you can power AC or DC loads, wi
th or without Softstart.
Status LED's for visual
confirmation of signals.
Basic I/O card has 8 inputs and 2
power relays for outputs. Plugs into IDC header on UBOB via
IDC to DB25 plug so it can be mounted remotely for easy connection
of table switches and AC loads. Primary relay supports up to
20A @ 275VAC. Expanded inputs and outputs available
at the UBOB card.
It does have a DB9
connector and 10 pin ribbon connector to interface to our QUAD RELAY
Perfect low cost card for
providing spindle control and aux power via the two power
relays. Large 20A relay will handle most AC
If you expand with the PORT2 interface card, there are 5 addtional inputs on the Table I/O available.
MTA150 Cable Interface
single cable interface with plugs and terminals to support
either hard wiring (via screw terminals) to motor drivers or through
multi-conductor cables, a single plug interface to our EZPlug series
of Gecko Interface. If you are using another brand of drives
(up to 5) you can use the screw terminals. Illustrated manual
shows how. FOR USE WITH UBOB or UBOB based products (MP3000) ONLY!
