About the 1030 Board:
The primary function of the 1030 board is to provide communication between the 1400 CPU board and the 1010 axis controller boards. The RS232 communications is also handled by this board. All CNC functions are controlled by the 1030 8 bit Bus Interface on the 1060 motherboard. It basically acts as a "traffic signal" between all the computers on the 1060 motherboard (XYZAB and spindle axis cards and the mill interface).
Note: For speed, the 1730 Interface Board connects the 1400, 1470, 1420 and the 1030 on a separate 16 bit buss.
NOTE: We commonly get 1030 boards in for repair with the RS-232 port not working. This can be prevented by using a Surge Suppressor available from most electronic stores. Simply purchase a DB 25-pin male/female unit and plug it into the back of the control, between the machine and your cabling.
