A Little Work On Our Control Computer

Our machine is just about assembled. We plan to drill and mount the first table-bed board tomorrow.

Last week we received some computer components which I had ordered, so we threw together this nice little embedded computer. We plan to mount this little guy inside of our control cabinet.

We loaded the operating system and Mach 3 today. Also included in the photo is the 17" ELO touch screen which we purchased off of eBay for cheap.

That's all for now...

Best Regards,

Jeff and Erick

Robert,

Happy to provide the information. We ordered this computer from Logic Supply, Inc. ( www.logicsupply.com ). Here's the list:

* Intel D945GSEJT Johnstown - Fanless Mainboard;
* M350 Universal Mini-ITX case with Mounting Brackets and DIN rail mounts (I'm not sure yet how we will mount the control computer in our cabinet, so I purchased both, they're cheap);
* M350 Backplate and PCI Riser for D945GSEJT Mainboard;
* 2GB DDR2 667 SO-DIMM Memory;
* 160GB 2.5" Seagate SATA HDD 5400rpm (3Gb/sec);
* 80W, 12V AC Power Adapter (brick).

With delivery to our house $334.95 USD.

We are planning to use the SmoothStepper, but this setup also has an onboard LPT Parallel Port header and with the PCI Riser you could add a second if needed.

Jeff

Your machine looks great, hope you get it cutting before long. I live west of Dewitt, glad to see someone close by building the Mechmate. I hope to start mine in the next few months.
