Mach4 is the newest version of CNC motion control software by ArtSoft Newfangled Solutions. CSMIO/IP firmware plug-in allows Mach4 to communicate with CSMIO/IP controllers.
Mach4 is completely new software and has less than 1% of the programming code in common with Mach3. It was written from the ground up to be expandable, flexible, and extremely responsive for use with very large files. While there was only one version of Mach3, Mach4 will be offered in different versions (not including the many customized OEM versions).
Here we release the absolutely new firmware CSMIO/IP-S v.3 plugin for Mach4 and CSMIO/IP-S
CSMIO/IP-S plugin for Mach4 BETA (takes you to DOWNLOAD section)
CSMIO/IP v3 is absolutely new firmware designed with our best knowledge and many years of experience. The current version is optimized for modern floating-point unit microprocessors which are present in CSMIO/IP controllers (FP4 model), new models of CSMIO/IP controllers and new PC software versions such as Mach4. It provides better flexibility and opens the way for further development of CS-Lab’s products.
We’ve improved STEP signal max. frequncy (up to 10 MHz) as well as frequency of position regulator operation from 1kHz up to 2kHz. Additonaly improved position regulator algorithm makes CSMIO/IP-S trajectory is more accurate even at high dynamics.
This version is the test version (beta). It’s firmware in test phase and special caution is required. CS-Lab is not responsible for any damages caused during firmware tests.
Update to v3 version is reversible, it means that you can go back to an older version anytime. For that you should update your CSMIO/IP-S controller using a file with firmware e.g. 2.910 and follow further instructions.
V3 firmware is compatible with Mach4 and CSMIO/IP‑S (FP4) controllers. New test firmware version for CSMIO/IP‑M (FP4) controllers and CSMIO/IP‑A (FP4) controllers will be available soon.
