Re: Kstep VB question?

Hi Tom, Thanks for the help. I really need to do something about the power supply! Tony It's worth mentioning that some regulated supplies will run quite happily in parallel, whereas others will quite quickly fault out. Those that fault out, are also the ones likely to give issues with faulting dur...

Re: China Servo Driver

Servo motor a driver brand Lichuan, AC servo 3ph 220v 2.6kw, 2500 rpm, 10Nm, 10A. I suspected as much. It's a bit late now, but the other more common (and typically slightly more expensive) Chinese servo driver has full +/-10V capability. One option available is to breakout a couple wires from the ...

Re: Linux Support

Scott, have you considered some of the basic Windows tablets? If you can manage with capacitive touchscreens (which I'm guessing the Dell AIO's use) then there are some very good options out there for very reasonable prices. I bought a Linx1010 tablet a couple years ago for outdoor events, and I hav...

Re: Odd user button issue

I knew it would be something stupidly obvious! And yes, bit 48 is the SYSTEMOK bit that gets set low to trigger the e-stop handling routine. And now I've realised that, the toolchanger error message will be getting displayed as it's the first option in the e-stop enum, and the variable that gets use...

Re: Programming KFLOP

That actually sounds like a case where flashing the C program to the KFlop could be a good option. The usual reasons for recommending not to flash C programs, is if you're using a PC anyway there's no real benefit to flashing, and it can cause longer term support issues as any update to the KFlop fi...

Re: Programming KFLOP

In cases 2 and 3, you write a C program that is loaded onto the board from the PC at startup (every time the system is powered on, what happens when the KFLOP is powered up and the PC isn't there?) and just talks to the user interface on the PC. Nothing. KFlop simply sits there dumbly doing nothing...

Odd user button issue

I'm not entirely sure this is a bug, but I've got an issue with the custom screen I modded for my lathe running a KFlop/Kanalog combo. I've used one of the user buttons (IDC_But8 to be precise) for controlling the coolant pump. The user button setting in Tool Setup is set to do nothing, and via the ...

Re: Feed Hold, Axis Disabled, Soft Limit issues

I'm guessing you've updated KMotion at some point, as 4.35b is relatively new? Also, looking at your code, I'm going to assume you've got no physical feedhold button? I'm sure Tom will be along with his expert eye, but to me it looks like the only thing in software that could trigger a feedhold is t...
