  • $180.00: The Ethernet SmoothStepper (B-ESS)

Ethernet Cables

You will need an Ethernet cable (cat5 or cat6) to connect your Ethernet SmoothStepper (ESS) to your computer.

Ethernet Panel Mount Cable - This 12" long cable plugs into your ESS's RJ45 port, and then provides a panel mount connector to provide an easy to get to, female RJ45 jack.  You can just plug your Ethernet cable from your PC into here.  (This requires 2 screws, which are not included, to attach it to your panel.)

Ribbon Cables

The USS (USB SmoothStepper) has 2 ports on it that can communicate as parallel ports.

The ESS (Ethernet SmoothStepper) has 3 ports on it that can communicate as parallel ports.  

We sell ribbon cables that have a Low-Profile 26-pin female header connector on one end (this side plugs into the USS or ESS).  The other end of the ribbon cable can be a female DB25 connector  (like a computer’s parallel port), a Male DB25 or another LPH26pin connector.  Which one you choose will depend on which motor driver or break out board (BOB) you are trying to connect to.
