Thanks for the update.

Does it only appear when starting up?

My setup does this because the drives/encoders do not have a separate power supply, just the mains to the drive and this is not enabled until after the controller is up and running.

Better drives have a separate mains and control supply so the controls are up and on before the controller is then the main supply is enabled later.

CS-LAB have found the issue :)

In the CS-MIO plugin config, under spindle axis, do not use "reversed direction" - there is a firmware bug that stops spindle alignment working :)

I had to untick that box, tick "encoder reversed direction" and also reverse the motor direction inside the servo drive itself.

All working now, very accurate and also with the shared encoder ( i didn't tell them that though ;) )

Possibly, look at some of the values and compare to the manual, if they seem sensible or similar then it might be ok. The supplier should provide a link though.

Yep,
I have an ongoing chat with a guy there, i have forwarded this last bit info to him.

Usually takes a week or two for a reply  :(

At least it proves it can work.

Different error every time, can't see any pattern to it at all.

It's bugging me that it works 100% in the config window, but 0% in Mach3 - makes me think it could be a Mach3 or Interface problem, it wouldn't be the first one  ;)

Yes i read the bit about the M20 and align at stop, i have turned off AOS but M20 still fails.

The get it to work in config all we did was tune the servo better. I have no idea what to look for but lion_rapid did, we went through it on the phone and it runs much better now, apart from this M20 thing.

Hmm,

I have been conversing a lot with member lion_rapid, great guy as you all are ;)

We have managed to get the spindle tuned now, also I can get orientation to work perfectly in the CSMIO plugin config page. I have it set so I can insert a locking pin into my spindle shaft to allow me to unlock collets etc.

BUT

In M3/M5 and M20 calls orientation fails every time, M20 throws up angle errors every time. Having "stop at position" turned on in config  just makes the spindle stop at random locations every M5 call.

Baffled now - so near but so far away ;)

Hi

removed the CSMIO connector, shorted the analogue input out and enabled it manually.

The motor was creeping, I tweaked the DAC offset a few mV and got it stationery.

When nudged by hand it was fairly rigid and held its position, no oscillating.

Re-connect CSMIO and it shows a DAC offset of 0.16V spindle is stationery, but still won't stop where its told or take any tuning.
