1.Getting started - Installing MASSO

Overview

Our dedicated CNC controllers are designed from the ground up on a custom-built hardware platform that includes all the inputs and outputs to control machine axis, spindles etc. All the required hardware is built into the system and the user only needs to connect an LCD screen through VGA cable and a standard USB keyboard. With our unique dedicated architecture, the machine can be controlled without requiring any PC.

 

Connecting power to the MASSO

The MASSO power supply connector is located at the top-right corner of the controller as seen in the picture below. MASSO required between 12 to 24VDC power and will power on instantly if as power is connected.

 

Connecting a screen

MASSO uses a standard 15 pin female VGA connector (1024 x 768 screen resolution)
     

 

Connecting Keyboard & Mouse

Standard USB Keyboard & Mouse can be connected to MASSO, both wired and wireless devices are supported. If more than 2 USB ports are required then a USB HUB can also be connected.

 

  CAUTION: Avoid using unbranded Keyboard and Mouse as they are known to cause issues.

Upgrading / Unlocking the Controller

Connecting the MASSO to your CNC machine

Since every CNC machine is different this procedure varies for each machine. It is our ambition to have instructions for the most common machines, you can find these under Setup and Calibration.

Wiring Stepper or Servo motor drives

MASSO is compatible with a wide range of motor drives. The connection for each varies. Please refer to the link for more details: Setting up Servo/Stepper Motor Connections

Setting up the door input

Door input must be setup even if its not required on the unit.

Setting the F1-screen

The “F1 – Setup” Screen displays current machine status and all vital information such as controller and external power supplies status. Click the link for more details F1 – Setup Screen

Calibrating the axis

The next step is to calibrate the axis, click here for more information: Calibrating the axis

Homing Setup

Before you can start using your machine you need to setup axis homing.
