    5 Axis Breakout Board


    Can anyone tell me how to use Delphi to send commands to a 5 Axis breakout board to control stepper motors? Not much info on the net, so I thought here might be a good start

    The board is connected to the parallel port
    I do know how to send commands to the LPT Port, but what commands to turn the steppers forward or reverse. Up to 6 steppers can connect to this board. The manual simply says that there are 12 output pins: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,14,16 and 17. These pins connect to the 6 stepper drivers as pairs.
