MASSO 5 axis Controller

I want to build a 5-axis CNC Mill with an umbrella type of tool changer. I need clarification that the 5-axis control system will use different output to control the additional motors on the tool changer. The tool changer requires that the controller control two separate motors. Is it correct to say that the 5-axis controller will not use these five axis output to control the tool changer. i.e I will still have 5 servos plus 2 stepper for the tool changer? Am I correct to assume that MASSO will work that way?

Attached image is the design of the CNC Mill that we want to build.

Masso controls ATC via it's TTL output ports, so it doesn't use any of it's axis outputs on a ATC.

You will need to provide your own driver signals for any stepper motors on the ATC. These S&D signals will be turned ON/OFF by the TTL outputs.

Arie.
