Mesa 7i80HD-25

The MESA 7I80HD is a low cost, general purpose, FPGA based programmable I/O card with 100 BaseT Ethernet host connection. This is the main board for my machine. I also have a 7i80HD-16 for a backup, already firmware loaded. The main board handles the StepGen functions.

Image

Mesa 7i44

The 7I44 is a 8 channel RS-422 interface for Mesa's Anything I/O series of FPGA interface cards. This connects all the secondary boards, below, to the main board.

Image

Mesa 7i73

The 7I73 is a remote real time pendant or control panel interface. This will be my control panel board, when i get around to building it.

Image

Mesa 7i70

The 7I70 is a remote isolated 48 input card. This takes in all the minor inputs from the machine, at 24Vdc. it also currently handles the (8-bit) analog inputs, from spindle feedback RPM, and air PSI sensors.

Image

Mesa 7i72

The 7I72 is a remote isolated 48 output card. This controls the minor outputs of the machine, at 12Vdc potential (sinking outputs, so ground referenced. will be 24Vdc after re-wire).

Image

Mesa 7i83

The 7I83 is remote isolated six channel +-10V analog output card intended for analog drive interfacing or other +-10V analog output applications. This controls my spindle RPM, and my laser output power.

Stepper Motors

Unknown brand/model NEMA23 steppers

Image

Power Supplies

a 100A RV charger/converter, driving DC to DC converters for 5V, 12V, 24V, and 48V.

About Travis

Image

I am a middle-aged Autistic man, that loves computers, CNC, Electronics, Mountain Biking, and so on... I host my own website, and wired my CNC machine myself. for education, i have only a HS Diploma, and the rest is self-taught, except carpentry, which i learned from my Father.

Mountain Biking

I used to ride about 14 miles a day, or so. over rough trails, gravel roads, paved roads, etc...
I ride a GT Timberline. I originally got this frame from a friend on the NNTP group alt.mountain-bike, as well as many of the parts, and some i had. yet some others i have added or replaced over time.

Image

Now, i am out of shape, over weight, and bigger than my bike... but i still get out and ride. Follow my rides on Strava.

I could not find a Farmington Maine mountain biking club on Strava... so i made one. if you are in Farmington Maine, or near it, mountain bike, and are on Strava, feel free to join the club. it is unofficial at this point, but who known what the future may bring.

Image

Electronics

I like electronics, like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, STM32, and so on...

Image

Model Trains

I like HO scale trains, and DCC-EX.

Image

Woodworking

I like working with wood, like making cabinets.

Image

Hunting

I hunt with a crossbow, and i hunt for food, not a trophy. I have yet to get my first deer, but eventualy...

Image

Team Fortress 2

I like the video game Team Fortress 2. I used to run a server, but no longer do as it seemed to produce a memory leak on the server.

Image

Photography

I like taking digital pictures. Mostly landscapes and such... Flickr YouTube

Image

Servers

I run my own servers that host my website.

Image

Mountain Biking

I used to ride MTB a lot... trying to get back into it.
