X-MCC Setup and Stage Connection
Important! Review the X-MCC User Manual for complete device precautions and operation instructions.
Important! Always remove power to the X-MCC controller before connecting or disconnecting peripherals.
Determine which MC motor cables are required for each gantry peripheral. See the configuration table in Product Overview.
Connect the 26 pin male end of the MC cables to the X-MCC controller axes. Connect the cable for:
•X-axis 1 to X-MCC axis 1
•X-axis 2 to X-MCC axis 2
•Y-axis to X-MCC axis 3
•Optional Z/theta to X-MCC axis 4 (if present)
Tighten locking connector screws.
See Product Overview to identify the gantry axes.
If desired, mount the X-MCC controller. See instructions in the X-MCC User Manual.
Note: Ensure the E-stop connector is reconnected with either the 'E-stop off' jumper or an E-stop (such as the ES01) to ensure controller function.
Connect the other end of each MC motor cable to the matching peripheral and tighten the locking connector screws.
Important: During gantry assembly you may wish to disconnect one or more peripherals. Always remove power to the X-MCC before connecting or disconnecting any peripheral.
Connect the X-MCC controller to your computer using the USB cable (U-DC06) or to an X-JOY3 joystick with an X-DC cable (if a joystick is present).
Connect the X-MCC controller to one or more power supplies.
Open Zaber Console. Confirm that three stages are detected and configured. A green check mark should be present on the chain icon next to the axes in the device list. See the X-MCC manual for more information on activating peripherals and setup.
