    You don't need any of that stuff for the output to the motor... Reg 64 gets data from the spindle tab under ports and pins. you just need to tell it what number gives you max RPM. As for gears... there are 20 gears that you can set up and all the scaling is taken into account We work hard to make things simple.

    Yup I could be off by one register but you get the idea

    Default Macros for Spindle Control w/ GS-2

    Change the extension on the attached files to .m1s and put them in your macros folder for the instance of Mach 3 that runs your mill to use your GS-2 VFD to control spindle speed from Mach 3.

    Hello all,
    I have a GS2 also and was wondering what all is needed to interface to Mach3.

    1) Does the cable go directly from drive to PC serial port? Or should there be a breakout board of some sort?

    2)Any documentation on making the cable to connect serial PC port to RJ port on drive?
    Looking for advice on where to start, as i have never done anything with Modbus. (obviously)
    Any help much appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Troy
