    I have a 6040T CNC router with JP-3163B ver. 3.9 + JP-1635A BO-Driver Boards.
    Since I could not get complete information by googling, I have reverse engineered and found the following information
    I share here because some could not get the board to control limit switches and VFD - (I have succeeded)

    So here are the info:-

    JP-3163B ver. 3.9
    Pin 1: Spindle on/off Relay 1(active low)
    Pin 2: X Axis Step (active low)
    Pin 3: X Axis Dir (active low)
    Pin 4: Y Axis Step (active low)
    Pin 5: Y Axis Dir (active low)
    Pin 6: Z Axis Step (active low)
    Pin 7: Z Axis Dir (active low)
    Pin 8: A Axis Step (active low)
    Pin 9: A Axis Dir (active low)
    Pin 10:Estop (active low)
    Pin 11: X Axis Limit Switch (active high) = when NC switch(es) open
    Pin 12: Y Axis Limit Switch (active high)
    Pin 13: Z Axis Limit Switch (active high)
    Pin 14: Buffer Chips “Enable” controlled by computer if Jumper 3 is set to 1-2 position
    Pin 15: Probe (active low)
    Pin 16: Is supposed to turn Relay 2 on/off but is currently not connected in board.
    Pin 17: PWM 0-10V for VFD Spindle AN1 (if jumper 4 is in default 1-2 position) active low
    Pin 18: Gnd
    Pin 19: Gnd
    Pin 20: Gnd
    Pin 21: Gnd
    Pin 22: Gnd
    Pin 23: Gnd
    Pin 24: Gnd
    Pin 25: Gnd or NC

    Jumper 1: 1-2 Internal 5V (default) ; 2-3 External Power Supply
    Jumper 2: 1-2 Enable (by computer on pin 14) ON; 2-3 Enable (pin 14) OFF (default)
    Jumper 3: 1-2 Air Cooling always ON; 2-3 Relay 2 by Computer pin 16 but 16 is currently NC (Default)
    Jumper 4: 1-2 Analog 0-10V Pin 17 ON (default); 2-3 Pin 17 changed to digital Hi-Lo
    Jumper 5: 1-2 Manual (handset?) On (Default); 2-3 Manual Off.

    Microstep Mode (on each Axis X, Y, Z but A is on separate JP-1635A driver board)
    K1 K2 K3 K4
    OFF OFF OFF OFF 1 = NO MICROSTEP 0% decay
    OFF OFF ON OFF 2 microsteps per step of 1.8deg = 0.9 deg 25% decay
    ON ON OFF ON 8 microsteps per step of 1.8deg = 0.25deg 50% decay (DEFAULT)
    OFF ON ON ON 16 microsteps per step of 1.8deg = 0.125deg 100% decay




    Current Limiting Dip Switches (on each Axis X, Y, Z but A is on separate JP-1635A driver board)
    SW1 SW2 SW3
    On Off Off 0.5 A
    Off On Off 1.0 A
    Off Off On 1.5 A
    On On Off 1.8 A
    On Off On 2.0A
    Off On On 2.5A
    On On On 3.0A

    Does anyone have a schematic or drawing of how to install a G540 into the black 6040z controller box?
    Here is a photo of controller box and a wire diagram. Hope it helps. Looking to add a G540 and keep the vfd drive

    not having the details or a SXCNC box to measure

    I have two thoughts

    there will be the space to fit the G540 in the space left when the stepper driver boards are removed
    the 9 pin D-types supplied with the G540 can be fitted to the original wires that was connected GX16-4 connectors that made the connection to the stepper motor cables

    a short printer cable with an adapter plate can be fitted to the rear of the box to connect your PC printer port or motion controller to the G540
    this has the advantage of minimising the modifications to the box

    I can not see from your photo if you have computer control of the VFD



    If you don't want to fit the G540 inside of the control box

    with the GX16-4 connectors used for the stepper motor connections removed
    do you have the space to make a 2.27" x 5.425" cutout for the 2.375" x 6.375" G540 to be fitted next to the fan ?

    KHOUJ posted above:
    This CNC routers kick ass on my opinion, were operating these machines almost three years now with no hiccups, runs 40-60W average on the power cords in each unit, the power consumption will vary depending on the code programmer, material precut, bit size, tool bit sharpness, they all affect the current consumption, my best tool bit preference is the 1/8 carbide bit formed into a single flute since you cannot put a factory 4 flute on these machines, it will shatter instanly on contact with a steel material, the more bit flute means lower RPM spindle, this unit runs 24000 RPM so a single flute is efficient enough to cut anything on it`s path......

    Can you give information and settings how you did "High carbon steel being cut and formed into mold, almost 3 hours working time."

    I would love to make some press dies for small vintage car sheet metal parts,

    Thanks
