Love your tool setter patent, Hood. Should consider doing one. Really looks very convenient.

The servos look new indeed. But hey, how do you manage to get all those great deals...

Absolutely love the design, John. An engineering art. Thanks for sharing. Just excellent!

Problem solved. Was wrong communication settings in the PLC.

Thanks,

Strange thing is that I am able to read outputs from the VFD using same Brain. Then why it wouldn't read from the PLC? Again, what's most strange is that I can read the PLC inputs using the Test window in Mach3. Only doesn't work fro a Brain.

An Atmel processor (on an Arduino MEGA development board) is used for data acquisition only and the data (sensor reads) that is collected on each run is sent over a serial connection to a program on the PC for the calculations.

Is it a commercial program or some code of your own?

Hi
I tried the M11P1 and E1P0 commands in every way I could think of-No luck
I guess thr SS doesn't recognize it - Bo Ho
Can you help me with the Dir output from a Phantom axis - I could use A,B and C

Thanks again
Jack

Hi Jack,

Download the latest SS plugin. Support for M11P/M10P has been added.

Hi Scott,

I am using that document and it's very helpful! Thank you for writing it.

Not sure what you mean, though. Please see screenshot showing how I am doing the input for the Brain shown above.

Hi Zafar,

Great screens! Really well made! How do yo change the font of the DRO's? I downloaded your files, but here it doesn't show that font. I saw you included the font file and I did install it, but it still doesn't show in the DRO's.

Did you use MachScreen?

Have a strange problem. For some reason I can't read a PLC output using a Brain. Can write to a PLC with a Brain, but can't read. It reads fine using the Modbus test window in Mach3, but not from within a Brain. Any idea what could be the reason? Attached screenshots of the Modbus settings and the Brain.

Thanks,
Dan
