General Mach Discussion / G0 not moving at max speed
« on: July 20, 2014, 10:46:58 PM »
Hello.
I noticed something strange today. Whenever I do a G0 command it moves slower than if I use the jog keys.
In the motor tuning setup I have 5000 mm/min and my G0 moves go at 2000 mm/min.
Why is that?

Any luck with this?
I'm trying to do this exact same thing and I couldn't find it either.
I hava an arduino board connected with modbus to Mach3 to handle the inputs and I already have the jog keys working. Now I need the "jog override" key.
Thanks in advance

My apologies for not getting back to you guys with this.
Due to work priorities I had to postpone this project and I haven't been able to test changing resistors yet.
As soon as I'm able to test this I'll let everybody know whether it works or not.
Thanks to all for your help

I'll try and let U know.

I'm using a 4k7 resistor for the base. the signal from the encoder is either 0 or 24 and the switching time should be extremely high (I assume since the encoders allow up to 5000 rpm) to affect here.

I tested at VERY LOW and VERY HIGH speeds and I still get errors in both cases.

I also played with the debounce and no luck.

I do believe as well it may be noise. I had noise issues testing my probe, so this could be happening here too.
with the probe I put a couple capacitors across the input and that worked as a charm, although I can't do that here since the capacitor would mask the pulses. With the probe is ok because there I don't expect a pulse train.

How can I filter the noise in this case?

No, the error accumulates. If i MDI from 0 to 400 and back to 0 the encoders don't show 0, although the won't show everytime the exact same number.

TP, The error is usually close but not 100% exact all the times. I thought about trying to adjust the ppr setup. Right now is setup in 800 and using something like 803 doesn't sound like a proper way to solve it. Anyway, the error is not exactly the same all the times.

RUSS, I know what you say and I saw it when I ordered the encoders. The encoders are HE50B-8-1000-3-T-24, so based on the model # they are 1000 ppr and that's what I ordered. The only thing I missed when I ordered was to try 5v instead of 24v. Now I put a BC547 transistor on each signal to adjust form 24v to the 5v I need at the board input.

The board I'm using to interface with the LPT uses a 74HC244P to isolate the LPT from the machine, although I don't think this could be causing a problem.

Now, any ideas why the encoders are not giving the same measurement as the DROs ????

This is driving me nuts. If I can't get this solved, I won't be able to use the machine in manual mode.
