Thump

with no voltage the stepper motors can be turned freely.
but, you will hear those babies lock up once voltage has been applied.
They are ready for commands from Mach3. Best of luck.

Gecko G203

What was wrong with your Gecko G203v?
Only thing I have ever had go wrong with them is blowing the fuse and that was my fault. If you order fuses, order a bunch. They are cheap.
