I'm not using a resistor, seams to work.
Can someone tell me if I should leave all my parallel port input pins floating or should I pull them high with 10k resistors?
I'm using a homemade breakout board and the Gecko 201's with steppers.
In my Camtronic controller the pins are pulled high, but I'm not sure about the Gecko's....Jim

Thanks Paul I didn't want to do any damage I gues you hook 5v to the dir/step common connector?
All right I've got my Gecko's installed with a 48v supply and WOW rapids of 160 ipm, compared to 15 ipm with another controller and 24v.
But what I'd like to know now is how can I tune the drives?
The instructions say to run the motors at 1/4 rpm I think, how might I get them to turn so slowly?
You will need to set that speed up in the software. You could set the max speed way down or write a gcode with a very low feedrate.
I wish it wouldn't crash.
