I am rebuilding my plasma table . Pc s tend to die in my shop. CNC is not a hobby for me I need this table up and running . I also need it to be idiot resistant being the biggest idiot in the shop I know nothing is idiot proof. The less moving parts the better or in this case the less pc boards the better . I too would like to see on board THC but i can see this would be a big project .

Right now I just need some clarification on how to wire up the Masso to a Gecko 540 I found the support page I just do not understand it fully May be as stated before I am an idiot . But I just do not know what a black line to an X is all the steep - and direction - for XYZ go to a black line X . Is this a chassis ground or just not to be used . I do not want to fry the Masso right out of the box any help would be nice I can make up my own cable just need diagram thank you again.

welcome to the MASSO forums @707chrisa

For everyone's reference, this is the wiring diagram for the Gecko 540: https://www.masso.com.au/masso-documentation/?section=gecko-g540

The "x" sign means do not connect. As the Gecko does not take differential signals the pins marked with "x" on the MASSO are not to be connected anywhere. For the Gecko to work with MASSO its very important to connect Pin 25 from Gecko to Ground pin on the MASSO.

Maybe the above sentence could be added to the document page for the G540.
