Re: Kflop Wiring for Leadshine Close loop step servo CSM22430

Hi Amit, I plotted the X error. As you can see the errors are not pure backlash: X Error.png Pure backlash would have a sudden change of error when the direction reverses. There seems to be a scale factor error of ~4.5%. Here is simulating a correction error of 4.5%. Now it appears more like a backl...

Re: ShuttleXpress as MPG

Hi HowHardCanItBe, Maybe you could create 3 settings for the Shuttle. One where the scroll wheel would move X, another for Y and Z. Then configure the X Y Z buttons to load the corresponding settings. A manual I found seems to allow the "Computer Response" for a Button Action to be "Switch Settings"...

Re: Kflop Wiring for Leadshine Close loop step servo CSM22430

Hi Amit, It seems backlash correction will not work well with your system. Backlash correction will only help if the backlash is consistent and any disturbance forces (cutting forces) are not large enough to move the axis. Ironically friction can sometimes help. Imagine pulling a sled with a rope 1m...

Re: MCodes and how to use them in an application

Hi Juanjo-Lasing,
I understand that M0-M9 have defined functionality, but if I change that functionality with KM_Interpreter.SetMcodeAction, then these MCodes will run the new functionality and ignore the original one?
No. It will do that Action in addition to any normal functionality.

Re: SQL Tools

Hi Scott,

No KFLOP doesn't have a capability of writing to SQL Servers.

KFLOP can execute PC Programs. So you might create a PC program to do whatever you need and then invoke it from KFLOP.

Re: Kflop Wiring for Leadshine Close loop step servo CSM22430

Hi Amit, Regarding backlash: It seems your INIT file has 78 steps of backlash for both x and y. Shouldn't they be different? What is the resolution of your Axes? Please be more clear about what you are doing and what happens. The backlash rate of 78 steps/sec seems slow. That would take 78 (steps) /...

Re: Controlling a dual head, dual table cnc router

Hi Curtis, I am using clearpath servos for the drives. Step/direction wiring would connect from kflop 1 to driver inputs and then branch back to kflop2. As long as kflop2 can tolerate a step/direction signal from kflop1 when kflop2 output is disabled. if not, I suppose I could break the circuit usin...

Re: Controlling a dual head, dual table cnc router

Hi curtiskelowna, Like you, the only way I can think of to perform mode #3 would be to have 2 KFLOP's and 2 instances of KMotionCNC. To do modes #1 and #2 the 6 axes would need to be connected to one of the KFLOPs. So this would require switching the axes from one KFLOP to the other when switching b...

Re: 5 stepper motors, 3 position encoders and 11 Input bits

Hi Steve, I'm not sure what you mean. Do you want to use KStep or other drives? Are the "5 motors remote from KStep" in addition to KStep or instead of KStep? KStep JP26 is a connector on KStep as an alternate method to feed 4 Step/Dir signals into KStep not outputs. There are several choices to mul...

Re: MCodes and how to use them in an application

Hi Juanjo-Lasing, The GCode Interpreter has a method of invoking generalized "Actions". Actions can be invoked from MCodes, S Words, User Defined Buttons, or Special Actions. The Actions performed can be various operations such as changing the states of one or two I/O Bits, writing a Speed value to ...
