HiCON Motion Controller / Re: Mach4, Home backoff limits
« on: July 01, 2019, 12:46:45 AM »
Hi Mauri,
Thanks for the reply - my setup is close to your setup; the only difference is the negative value in the soft limits. I will try that.

Thanks, Boots-2b1

HiCON Motion Controller / Mach4, Home backoff limits
« on: June 30, 2019, 08:20:56 PM »
When “Reference  all home” the machine moves to Z Home switch, triggers it then does not back off. How can we change the Homing routine to move off the homing switch?? In MAch4 I tried increasing the offset but it does not work.

Hi a3dcreator,

Thanks for responding – unfortunately I have had to replace the X screw on my 10x54 Knee Mill because of damage. One of the guys in the shop lost it and broke the yoke on the X and Y axes. So the upgrade project is on a temporary hold until I get the new C3 X screw.  Looks like another week or so. When I am back on the project I will post on the string. Also thanks for the info on the linear encoders; I will be purchasing them next week so your timing is perfect.

Much Respect, Boots-2b1

Hi A3dcretor,
Thanks for responding - I am planning to setup the 7766 and 7737 with linear scales also. A couple of questions. When you wired it are you coming for the servo back to the 7737 board and then bring the linear scale output to J7 on the 7766 Board, how did you wire it? also the small adjustments do they affect the normal running of the Gcode programs, such as an arc, does it create problems?

HiCON Motion Controller / HiCon Plug Crash
« on: October 06, 2018, 05:53:53 PM »
Install Hicon Intergra 7766 with 7377 Hicon plugin crash

System: Dell Precision, Windows 7, 7766, 7377 boards, Mach4 install

When I try to configure HiCon Device (Config>Select Motion Device) it comes up with an error: Config Data not Initialized or Corrupt. Then in goes to the Dos screen and says "Configuration Download Success" Then it closes Mach4.

When I Re-start Mach4 and run VSI Device Manager and then San the Network is shows the correct IP connection. HiCon is also shown in the window below. I also enabled "J7 step and Direction" and clicked Download. But it still crashes.  ???

?? Could uses some help, Boots-2b1

Hi Craig,

Thanks for the info - and sharing your understanding of the tech involved. I will talk with Vital about the index signal and see if it is needed. Sometimes your mind takes you places reality can't follow. This maybe our problem here;  a great idea but not realistic. Again thanks for all your input, you have been very helpful. Ill follow up with Vital - you guys are the best!

With Respect, Boots-2b1

Hi Craig,
Thanks for the feed back - "When you say it complicates the issue in a big way" please explain more, I want to know what I am getting in to. Also do you have a block diagram of how it would be connected? I assume the 7766 board to the 7737 to the motors and then linear encoders back to the 7766? - thanks again for responding

The encoders on the servos are fine. I want to use linear scales as the feedback loop because it will give a true position of the table, backlash, belt moment etc. The encoders feedback is good but does not take into consideration the actual position of the table. I saw in the documentation that you can use liner scales as feed back, is this correct? please show how it would be setup and which linear scales would be compatible - thanks.
