Re: SPINDLE SERVO SPECS

That figure looks good to me, although you want to try and keep as much accuracy as possible and not round the number - 296811.5942028985507246

Re: Feed Hold, Axis Disabled, Soft Limit issues

You should be able to attach your Home and Init code her, or just copy and paste it into [co de ] [/co de] brackets (remove the spaces which I've added so the tags show) if they won't attach.

Re: A couple screen editor quirks

That makes sense. Is there any kind of reference guide for what the 4 colour settings do? I'm guessing only certain settings work with certain options, but I couldn't figure them out. You might want to look at the tab order, as the active textbox doesn't go the way you'd expect i.e. hitting tab afte...

Re: A couple screen editor quirks

3) Could you possibly mention somewhere that when using a Lathe, X and Z jog buttons are automatically swapped?
(Yes! I spent ages earlier swapping them, only to load the custom screen onto the lathe and discover things weren't moving in the expected directions!)

A couple screen editor quirks

I'm just working on a custom screen for my lathe, and have a noticed a couple minor issues 1) Some buttons (I think all dedicated buttons, non-dedicated buttons seem to be ok), changing the text doesn't change what is shown on the button. I noticed it on the Zero/Set buttons, but having tested a cou...

Re: totally overwhelmed! start over info

Might be worth writing a small C program that simply prints a message to the terminal when the input changes, to confirm the Z signal is working. Something like this- #include "KMotionDef.h" #define TESTBIT 37 // set to bit being watched #define LASTSTATUS 48 // set to an unused virtual bit int main...

ya i think thats what i am doing right?

if the output channel uses A2+, A2-, B2+ and B2- encoder inputs, it can use any of the 36-43 for Z index right?
Yes, the index can use any suitable and available input.

Re: totally overwhelmed! start over info

The differential inputs on Kanalog are labelled as if you're going to use them for an encoder. So A0 and B0 inputs mean channel 0, however if you just want to use a single differential input as a more generic input (aka an index signal), you need to check what pin it connects to on the KFlop, then f...

Re: need serious help again

I'll just echo what Tom said about making sure windows is fully updated. I've had the same problem with the driver showing as unsigned, but ensuring all updates are applied solves the problem. It is probably only one specific update that solves the problem, but nobody knows which update. If the comp...

Re: Use SnapAmp with KFLOP/Kanalog for hydraulic servo valves?

In all honesty, some relatively simple timer circuits that take the Kanalog analogue outputs and convert them to PWM would likely do the job. It's definitely not an area I know that much about, but I'd guess pass the kanalog output into a voltage divider (aka a couple suitable resistors) to improve ...
