Title: Help with modbus I/O Pendant
Post by: rs232 on June 26, 2013, 05:44:06 PM
Hy all
Need help again
I spend the last 3 hours searching and reading but haven't found the answer to my problem.
I'm converting an industrial plasma cutter (Vintage Farley Wizard) that after many faults the owner decided to convert to Mach3.
I have the stepper motors and limit/home switches running
Working on the pneumatic ram for the torch up/down ( original from the machine and is in the plans to upgrade later)
The owner is a friend of mine and he got an Modbus pendant of ebay with an RS232 plug that I can't figure out how to make it work.
I fallowed the manual to configure Mach3 and copied the macro file into the correct folder and I get a "CRC ERROR".
Can someone help ?
The pendant is this one (Ebay item 261141753414)
Does someone have experience with this pendant ?
I'm using Mach3 R3.043.067 (should I move to the .66 version ?)
I have a license for Mach3
Also need some help/info on the connection of an Hypertherm HP2000
