I just pushed a new version of my Mesa Configuration Tool which includes support for the Mesa 7i96S card.

Included in this update is a check for the proper version of Mesaflash and a reminder about what version of LinuxCNC you must use with the 7i96S.


It also provides support for the inmux pins which in addition to in not it has a debounce in slow.


This update has been tested on a 7i96S.

Oh I forgot to mention the ability to load the same configuration at startup by checking that option before building. That takes advantage of the new Preferences file that the tool creates.

You can also turn off the check for Mesaflash if you don't have it installed and won't be flashing a card. I hate nag screens...

Getting UpTown.

I just completed adding support for the 7i96S to my Mesa Configuration Tool and tested the configuration on my 7i96S.. I need to spend some time on the documents now.

If you purchased one of the 7i96S Proto boards don't forget to invert any inputs.

I installed MesaCT and was successful building a functioning Axis interface on a 7i96s.

Proto boards? What constitutes a proto board or is the current revision the prototype? Is there a thread I missed?

Thanks John, I really like this tool.

There were a few proto boards sold as a marked down special (8 I think)
These need the isolated input polarity inverted

Production boards do not

Thanks for the info. I got a configuration going using the MesaCT and the Pncconf on 7i96s+7i73. I got the Pcconf up faster but the MesaCT was closer to final product. I did get an error. The MesaCT build did not create a sserial,hal. I did manually and all was well. I did have the box checked.

Awesome tools. Love the 7i96s!

Upload your MesaCT ini file if you still can.

Apparently I got side tracked and forgot to finish up converting the smart serial build section... thanks for bringing that to my attention.

Download a fresh deb and reinstall and it should build smart serial cards for all in one boards. I'll work on motherboard/daughter board in the morning.

File > Download Deb
