Re: Feed control based on spindle load

Hi Gabriel,

The variable CS0_LastFRO contains the last commanded FRO.

You can look these things up yourself in KMotionDef.h

There is also a function SetFROTemp() to temporarily change the Rate without effecting CS0_LastFRO. The original rate can then be resumed with SetFROTemp(CS0_LastFRO);

Re: Feed control based on spindle load

Hi Gabriel,

Its not clear what you mean by "A" or how the Amperage is interfaced to KFLOP.

But you can set the current feed rate to 80% with:

SetFRO(0.8);

Re: Kanalog and 4-20ma transmitter/transducer

Hi MadTooler, Kanalog inputs are voltage and can not work directly with 4-20ma sensors. In some cases a resistor can be used to convert current to voltage. How much noise there would be would depend on the environment. But most noise is high frequency and the Kanalog Inputs have a 1.5KHz low pass fi...

Re: 6 axis wire edm

Hi Mariano,

We charge $250/hr with a 2 hr minimum to do custom programming and custom circuit design. If you would like us to send an invoice contact our support.

Aren't you able to do some research and try it on your own? Then ask specific questions?

Re: KFLOP disables axis when starting inverter for the spindle

Hi Martin, That would indicate that input 0 still has noise introduced by the inverter whereas the other inputs no longer do. Are you sure the filter capacitor was added correctly in the same manner as the other inputs? Its very unlikely there is a problem with KFLOP IO 0 as it still works with the ...

Re: KFLOP disables axis when starting inverter for the spindle

Hi Martin, I think you get the prize for the most difficulty with limit switches. :) I installed 6 pcs of 1 nF filter capacitors right next to the KFLOP, replaced all the limit switches with ones from Omron- as per the attached datasheet, on which I connected a 2K resistor between Output and Vcc. I ...

Re: Upload GCode to KFLOP and run without PC?

Hi, The GCode Interpreter runs on the PC so a PC is required for it. There is a method to save some motion in KFLOPs Motion Buffer then load and re execute it without a PC. But this is limited to a few thousand motion segments. One User did this to dispense a “Happy Birthday” pattern without a PC. T...
