PMDX-125/126 Mach3 Plug-In

!!! PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE DOWNLOADING THE PMDX-125/126 PLUG-IN !!!

This plug-in is NOT needed (and should not be used) if you are:
  • using one parallel port and have enough inputs and outputs (i.e. using the PMDX-125 or PMDX-126 in a "standard" mode)
  • are using two parallel ports (for example, the PMDX-2PARPCI)
  • are using a SmoothStepper or other USB or Ethernet controller
You should only install the plug-in if you:
  • need to use a single parallel port
  • and need more input and/or output signals than are available on a single parallel port (12 outputs and 5 inputs)

NOTE: This new version of the PMDX-125/126 Mach3 plug-in supports the PMDX-125 and PMDX-126
in Expanded Input mode and also supports the PMDX-107 when running in Expanded Output or Expanded I/O modes.

WARNING:  
"Expanded Output" and "Expanded I/O" modes are NO LONGER SUPPORTED! They may work on some combinations of PCs and Windows operating systems, but we cannot guarantee this and we cannot support attempts to get them working. The plug-in still allows these modes for people who already have a setup that works and need to re-install the plug-in.

"Expanded Input" mode does work with any PC and Windows OS that supports Mach3, and we do provide support for this mode.
