The switchable socket is to be connected to the signal output (15-pin Sub-D) of the mainboard from STEPCRAFT 300 / 420 / 600/ 840. The device switches the mains voltage via internal relay.
It is used to switch the electrical equipment automatically on and off, e.g. the milling spindle Kress, Dremel , Proxxon
Usage of the switchable socket has two main advantages:
1. The electrical device will be switched on and off automatically during operation of the CNC-program.
2. In case of emergency, the operation of the electrical device, e.g. the spindle, also stops immediately, with pushing the emergency-stop switch of the STEPCRAFT system.
The risk for persons and material damage is greatly reduced.
