    Default Adding EIA to T32?

    Hey kids,

    Has anyone successfully added EIA to a T32 controlled machine?

    We've done it on T2/3 machines through the power of the hive-mind that is this forum, surely we can achieve it on the T32?

    Cheers,
    Trav

    Is this for your MP630 T32-6?
    I have a MP620 T32-6 with EIA, I thought that was standard on a T32 machine.

    Yeah - it's not highlighted in the options, and when i start a new program there's only Mazatrol as an option.

    I may be totally wrong here but I was doing some reading about options on my M32 and to me it looked like if you had a certain board with some options installed (can't remember which one offhand) the other options may be available but you would need to know how to switch them on. Probably option parameters or may be different software. I don't know. That was just my interpretation. Like I said I could be seeing things all wrong

    I believe you are correct.
    Some things would need a new board installed, but quite a few options are parameter driven.
    Last I checked the EIA option for the T32 was around $2k but it's been a while.
    Couldn't tell you if that was for them to tell me a parameter change or a board.

    Not bad money for changing a few numbers

    I copied the opton parameters for my lathe. Not sure if it has EIA as I haven't got it powered up but will get them to you to compare with yours.

    anyone else care to share their T32 option parameters so we can do some comparisons?

    There's a few differences there from yours to mine (and sudsy's which are the same as mine) I'll try doing some fiddling with the different ones tomorrow and see what differences it makes if any.

    Do you have any other fancy options?

    Interesting to see the outcome

    so O13 was able to be changed - and that seemed to get rid of my ladder diagnostic option (bengt's is 32 - mine is 36, so bit 3 on O13 might be ladder diag option) however it would just revert back when i reset the machine.

    O19 - which is 101 for bengt and 68 for me would't allow me to change it at all - even in the 1131 mode, so not sure what's up with that.

    The other difference was O29 - mine being 1 and Bengt's being 0, didn't try changing that one.

    Any idea of perhaps another parameter i need to change to allow me to change O19?

    Knowing what they're like there is probably another secret code you need to get into it. Try rubbing your belly clockwise, your head ccw while standing on one leg on a bungy cord in the middle of the amazon floating on a popcorn canoe. Let us know if that works lol

    Actually I think there is an epprom you will need but after that the other options may be just parameter related. It is on the memory modules (lower left side of controller. I can't remember the number offhand but can look tommorow

    Anyone had more thoughts on this?

    Another thing that would be great is Synchronous tapping - i mean, the machine has 2 full c axis, and can sync the heads with each other, so surely it has the hardware/software to do sync tapping.
