Re: Konnect Tool Changer

Hi Tom,
The solenoids iam planing to use are 24VDC 3w, so i should be safe then. Will most likely add another Konnect. The price alone is a little cheaper than adding a plc with enough I/Os. And will also allow Kflop/Kmotion to handle everything.
Noted on flybacks.

Thanks again,
Troy

Thinking of doing this with a PLC or adding another Konnect board. One question i have is the specs for Konnect output says .25mA up to 6W. Is...

Re: Conversational Programming Program

For what its worth,I just put an ELO touchscreen on my lathe. When you touch the screen the software has a small flyout/button on the side of screen that will open a keyboard. Keep me posted when your ready for further help on testing and such.

Thanks,
Troy

Re: Conversational Programming Program

Hi Moray,
I see iam not the only one daydreaming about my machine tool improvements. :) The direction your taking the software now looks good. About the only improvement i see now would be to make the GUI a little larger, maybe easier for touch screens and navigating mouse clicks.

Hi Moray,
Didn't know you had started a thread for this. Are you still interested in developing it when you can or?

Re: Jog Modes

So with this new feature could a check box or some other means be made to set the jog buttons as step movement?

Re: Jog Modes

Hay Tom, Sounds awesome. :) Will be happy to test it when your ready. Will this new script work like the script you added for checking and unchecking a checkbox? As i would like to do this with the Keyboard Jog button.Unless there is something unsafe by having the Keyboard Jog active all the time wh...

Re: Jog Modes

Yes it is, thought it would be better to post this here. Make it easier to find and of use to someone else. What iam working on is a custom USB keyboard to control certain areas of machine without the use of C code. I almost have my Jog lever switches working but because the step jog move requires a...

Jog Modes

Can a checkbox or better yet a button be used to set jog mode? Instead of having the different jog buttons. So one jog button can be Step movement or continuous, depending on the state of Jog Mode button.

Thanks,
Troy
