Functionally, it appears almost identical to the pmdx 122.

The 2 relays are a nice feature, the pmdx only has one one. There is no dedicated e-stop/disable junction block, but easy to address 1 of the 5 inputs as the e-stop as noted in the manual.

I would say - buy it. Looks fine from here.

Let me know if I missed it in the literature.

thanks for the reply, I think I'll buy it.
I'm going to use it with uirobot drives and either motionking or Deitech stepper motors.

well all breakout boards look the same, is in the build quality, customer support and extra features when they start to look different. And, if prices aren't very different, its better to stick with the known models/manufacturers.

Hi Sean the price is 39.00 or $62.00 delivered to my door, I have to say all my questions have being answered very promptly by the supplier and he has good reviews on other sites.

Andrew,
Thank you. Fair and commensurate pricing to the PMDX. I look forward to your feedback regarding the break out board. A nice, affordable solution for you folks on the other side of the pond.
Cheers.

28v ac will be 39v dc when rectified, I'm going to be using a similar setup to kobus.
