    Dry run speed

    I have the classic control. I tried dry run for the first time here, it appears to set rapids on about 1%, and takes about 1 minute to change tools, etc, then is extremely slow. There appears to be...

    #189 is where the probe result is stored. G68 doesn't use it unless you tell it to.

    What's on line n180?

    I'm not aware that dwo or tcpc are available on the classic control, at least not on 17 software.

    You didn't say which year machine this is but I'll assume it's one with separate keyboard and video board. I think the beep is probably generated by the keyboard/video card, so that doesn't...

    Thanks for this macro. So far it is working as designed on my VF2. It definitely beats modeling the whole thing in cam.

    The ngc controls use an arm soc.. Having done some work with linuxcnc, I agree with the difficulty, one of which would be a comparable interface.

    There is a formula around for figuring out true interpolated size depending on feedrate, I don't know if it is accurate for next gen or not, but I think it's still valid in the older controls. It's...

    It's more of a rattly hiss. I personally wouldn't bother. I don't notice mine unless it's the only thing running.

    Your hfo. It also depends on if your main baord and mocon are compatible.

    On the new control 239 shows up right underneath 79. My old control was version 9.21b, it was also in there somewhere. If your software is too old or you have dc servos, I'm not sure what your...

    I think it is param 239 to 8192. There are two encoder params, one needs to be at 8192, the other 4096.

    The encoder is geared I think, so one round is half a round on the encoder. When the mocon doesn't see a z mark it doesn't like it.
  14. The ref signal should be a 8192 because the ref...

    The ref signal should be a 8192 because the ref signal means the mark on the encoder for absolute encoding position. 239 maybe?

    I run a vf2 with vector drive on pt330. The pp can supply a decent surge for 4 seconds, I think 100+ amps, see datasheet.

    Has tech may not know. If you can see encoder position on you diagnostics screen it's not too old.

    Which alarm? My 96 alarmed until I set the params correctly. It's 4096 per rev and 8192 per z mark, the old was 4096 per mark, check your params.

    What year machine? Exactly what was showing on the screen in the aftermath?

    If you can't afford Maritool at the beginning, shars is ok. I'd rather shars than used. There are little things about shars that you'll learn why they are cheap, but they'll work. Like for example,...

    There is a bug in some older versions that causes this crc error and is caused by some specific key press according to some old posts I found. For my 95 control I had similar happen, so I cleared the...

    No you can't. Re starting it should fix it, as it homes to tool 1 every time it powerup restarts.

    I have both, and use them both for different things. The Haimer for indicating my two vises in parallel, for example.

    Probing work offsets is nice and handy, especially bores and bosses. But I...

    There seem to be a number of different board revs. I think that the core issue is whether or not there is the same amount of flash, cpu ram, and bbu ram. The more there is, the newer software you...

    I'm not sure, but I think typical PC power supplies require a minimum load, so I would suspect that is the issue with the low voltage. Are any caps on the board puffed?
