Try the Menu item called "Plugin Control".

Hello to all.
I searched the forum but did not find.
When I try to configure the plugin Huanyang-rs485, the message "Configuration Screen Are Now Accessed throuth tThe 'Plugin Control Menu'," and do not see the configuration window.
I tried 3 different PCs, and it is always so.
Has anyone had the same problem?.
Thank you, Giovanni

Sorry then, I have no other advice.  Anytime I have seen that error with this plugin it was because that the VC files were missing.
Maybe someone else can chime in with some help.

How did you make out with the 485 converter and the VFD?

There is a transmit and a receive section of the jumpers. I'm guessing that if I'm using USB -> converter -> VFD  I should have the receive jumper set to 232, and the transmit jumper to 485? Thanks again for the help guys.

Did you happen to remember to download the VC 2008 redistributables?

Both go to  the 485 jumper pins.

Be sure to set your jumpers to 485 on the USB to 485 converter.

Aha, so on my board I have a DB9 connector that is an RS232 port. I'm guessing then that the pins with the A,B,GND and VOD are the 485? Which means I connect the USB to my computer, and then the R-/R+ pins from my VFD to the A/B pins on my converter board. Sound about right? Thanks for the help guys This is the one I have:

Yes, A&B and Grd are the 485 and they connect to the VFD.
Let me know how that little converter works out.

No, the USB connects to your PC.  The DB9 connector can be RS232 or RS485, depending on what you purchased.  Since your link is nothing more than a picture it's hard to determine what it is.
If it is RS485, then you must pay attention to the pin out of the DB9.  It can be RS422/RS485 which means you need to follow the instructions to use it on 485.  Mainly the Data + and Data - or A & B.  There is no standard on how exactly it should be labeled.

Richard

Super stupid question. I know how to wire from my rs485 converter to my VFD. But do I use a USB cable to connect to my computer? Or do I connect the serial end? My serial connector on my adapter says rs232 so I'm assuming I connect the USB port to my PC. this is the adapter I have. http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/3/5/1/1/0/9/webimg/349216805_tp.jpg

Nevermind, I wrote a Brain that checks to see if Mach is in Reset AND if the Spindle is on and if so then turn it off.
Initial test show it works fine but I need to do some more testing on it.

Richard

Mark,
Did you ever find an answer to this?  I experience the same issue.  Pressing the reset button turns off the spindle, but if I hit a limit switch for example, mach's reset is flashing but the spindle continues to run.

Richard


Ok my turn for a question.

I've posted this in general Mach also.

When the spindle is under Mach control using the plugin I get the following issue:

If I hit the reset button within Mach it appears to send a M5 command and the spindle stops however if I hit an actual physical estop (that is recognised by mach and sets the reset button flashing), the spindle continues to run.

I am purposely not cutting the power to the VFD when an estop is hit as it is far safer and faster to initiate a controlled stop as opposed to just letting the spindle "idle down".

Am I missing a setting in Mach or elsewhere? Does it do a similar thing on you setup...

Cheers

Mark
