Title: Spindle On/Off
Post by: cpayne on September 22, 2011, 03:16:33 PM
Hi.  I am finishing up a 4 axis CNC router table.   I wanted to turn my spindal (router) on and off.  I could not find anything to set the spindle on a simple IO line like the sptepper motors, etc.  I do not want to use a PWM, etc, just on/off remotely using the program.   I do not have speed control.  Just want to pull in a relay.  I have a relay board that will pull in with a simple TTL input from the parallel card, just not sure how to set it up.   I am assuming this is fairly easy, just need some help doing this?

Con fi menu, Ports and Pins, Spindle Setup
Enable the spindle relays and enter an output number that you are not using Then on Outputs page enter the port and pin number in that output.
