Re: Using Encoders 0 to 3 with KSTEP

Hi Thomas, If I understand the axis status screen correctly, then the lines are channels # 0 - # 7. If a channel has an assigned encoder input, its measured value appears in the position field of the assigned channel. Currently I have entered the encoder input # 4 for channel # 0. When I move the en...

Re: Drilling Cycles giving Error in 3+2 Axis operation

Hi Amit,

Sorry I don't understand. Please post the exact error message you are getting and the GCode you are running.

Re: Tool Diameter compensation giving error of gauge

Hi Amit,

Radius Compensation should work in the XY plane as in any XYZ Mill.

Re: Using Encoders 0 to 3 with KSTEP

Hi Thomas, Can I also mux encoders 0 - 3 to KFLOP JP4 an use them instead of using encoders 4 to 7? Yes I placed the PGAW command in my init program and it compiled. That should not compile it needs to be FPGAW. It also needs to be downloaded and executed to have any effect. But when I look at the a...

Re: Tool Diameter compensation giving error of gauge

Hi Amit, G42 moves the tool on the right side of the specified path. It is not possible to go through inside concave corners without gouging. What are you trying to do? Here is a plot of your GCode: CW.png There must also be an Entry Move to apply radius compensation immediately after turning it on....

Re: Incomplete control definitions in SubScripts

Hi Larry, The SubScript is called with: SubScrpt:SimpleTestCleanup.scr instead of SScript:SimpleTestCleanup.scr SScript is the command to execute a Screen Script file. SubScript on the first line of a file tells the Screen Processor that it is not a complete screen description and to not reset all c...

Re: JP5 - max output frequency

Hi Francois,

AB quadrature should work better. There is no pulse width associated with this. Each edge cause a step and the frequency is half what pulses would be. Set the pulse width longer for your other drives.

Re: JP5 - max output frequency

Hi Francois,

No there is one setting for all Step Generators. Do any of the Drives accept quadrature input mode? Depending on the mode and interface you are using adding a 5V driver to the signal may help.

Re: ScreenScript #Include like directive

Hi Larry,

That was my mistake to leave what I moved into the SubScript file in the original file.

See my previous post.

Re: ScreenScript #Include like directive

Hi Larry,

Attached is a Screen Editor that should read Screen Script files with nested SubScripts. It also shows the hierarchy. But can't write them. I've attached an example with a main RTCP1T and 4 subscripts.
