UB1 Daughterboard - What features?

Postby ger21 » Tue Dec 12, 2017 12:28 pm

Weerasak is considering offering a daughterboard for the UB1 breakout board, to use ports 4 and 5.

What features would you like to see on them?

Single port board, or 2 port board?

Mostly inputs, or mostly outputs?

NPN? PNP?

I went with 2 x C10S boards
https://cnc4pc.com/motion-control/break ... -card.html

Take note that ports 4 & 5 of the UC300 are LPT input ports on pins 2-9, hence output is not an option (as far as I'm aware unless the firmware is to change for the UC300)

That being said, from my experience of using the C10S, more relays (NO+NC would be useful, high speed and maybe a few high current too (or the option to maybe buy and solder in some higher current relays if the board can be designed to accommodate both low current high speed and lower speed high current). As I have used the C10S for power 5v relays via its outputs.

The problem with the C10S is that its only 5v.....

Hence 24v would be useful given the UB1 is 24v

It may be worthwhile considering the use of something like the C35S with RJ45's for quick wiring via 8 core Ethernet cable which can be terminated quickly.

He mentioned the possibility of writing a plugin to possibly allow using them as outputs? Way over my head....

This is what he's thinking of:


-Second Charge Pump.

-13 npn isolated inputs 24V.

-13 npn/pnp isolated inputs 5v/24V.

-8 sink output same as mother board

It's probably 5-6 months away, though.

I'd buy one, as well.

I saw over at cnczone that there's some renders of the board up. Hard to tell while looking at it on my cell phone... Any ideas on the dimensions?

His original post showed it the same width as the UB1, which is 130mm. If the size stayed the same, it looks like it would be about ±75mm x 130mm.

A limited number of UB-1 daughterboards are now for sale at CNC Room. Not that there are two different versions.

I saw that a few minutes ago at CNCZone. Weerasak's link takes you to the NPN version. I'm thinking the universal version is a better choice because ... options, but I'm still assembling my "first" controller.
