6040 Break Out Board & Motion Controller Combined

Postby eddiegnz1 » Sat Jun 15, 2019 3:11 am

if a 6040 on eBay/Chinese has a parallel printer port, does that usually mean that the "Motion Control" is built into the "Break Out Board"?
Or
that there is no "Motion Controller" inside the "Control Box" such that the "Motion Control" is the software in the PC such as Mach3?

Which of the above is more common for those Chinese 6040 that have the parallel printer port?

Hard to know for sure, but I would think it has no motion controller, and is intended for parallel port use with Mach3.
