Hi, I have a 7762S motion controller, two 7711 boards and one 7535 PNP board from Vital systems, these are for analog +- 10 v 8 axis and up to 8 axis step and direction, go to http://www.vitalsystem.com/portal/motion/dspmc/dspmc.php# for info and pricing. I paid $1434 + tax, will sell for $1000.00 OBO free shipping, these are new only used for testing.
thanks, rayrob@sympatico.ca.

General Mach Discussion / Touch screen help
« on: August 07, 2014, 10:46:58 PM »
I might of posted this before but do I need to do anything special if I want to use a touch screen. I am thinking of selling my mill and have been using a key board and mouse, but I think if I make it touch screen it might be easier to sell. Will any of the Mach3 screens work with touch screen?
Thanks Ray.

General Mach Discussion / Dumb question, parallel port serial cable?
« on: March 22, 2014, 05:33:18 PM »
Went to my local electronic store and asked for a db25 M/F parallel cable, he said they don't carry them only USB, " don't you mean serial"  My system is DSPMC but I thought I might play around with steppers.

Is it the version I am running? it's on the main screen.

General Mach Discussion / 3D probe not working
« on: March 16, 2014, 08:04:24 PM »
So I tried using Art's 3D probe plugin but it doesn't work. I filled the parameters and it asked to check if the probe is working and that's fine then it moves either in the x or the y stops and says " Previous seq, not yet complete then it shuts my drives down and I have to get out of Mach3.
My version of Mach is R3.043.067 any help would be appreciated.

General Mach Discussion / Arduino or Pokeys
« on: February 17, 2014, 01:49:11 AM »
After a year of screwing around with my MPG (from Audrey in Russia, and by the way, it's a nice piece of kit with the LCD and 16 buttons) and now I find out that DSPMC motion controller doesn't support USB MPG's after I don't how many emails back and forth, Oh well. So now I have to connect some buttons and a joy stick and stuff, I have a pokeys56 but don't see much in the way of help yet I see loads of help on U tube for the Arduino, is this the same thing?
What should I use as I am not very good when it comes to electronics, pity that bloody MPG didn't work would have solved all my problems.

dspMC/IP Motion Controller / MPG and DSPMC hook up problem
« on: February 03, 2013, 01:47:33 PM »
When turning the MPG I have off and on signals comming in input 0 & 1 on J5 looking at Vital status screen.
DSPMC plugin set soft encoder, index 2.
Ports and pins, tick MPG#1 leave the rest blank.
No movement, Help.

General Mach Discussion / Problems with pop out jog/mpg
« on: February 03, 2013, 01:40:20 PM »
Jog cycle/ step doesn't increment, if you type in the inc, it will work.
Jog mode no led's but the button works.
MPG led's x & z not working.
They did work before, tried reloading mach 055,066,067
Other functions work.
Did I turn something off by mistake.

General Mach Discussion / AAAAAAHHHH I'm not going mad after all
« on: February 01, 2013, 12:16:12 AM »
So it looks like there are a few issues with G95, Threading, Shuttle RU MPG etc and mach3 and DSPMC combo. Andy from Machmotion was kind enough to call me today and explane a few things, I'm just happy I wasn't loosing my mind after hours and hours. He is going to help me next week to work around the problems, can't help me with the LCD Shuttle RU from Russia, they just don't work with the motion control (i have 2 of them)

dspMC/IP Motion Controller / threading test
« on: January 26, 2013, 12:15:12 AM »

threading wizard .250" pitch 4 tpi I get about 11.5tpi. using a 1000ppr encoder x4 = 4000. I see the trigger pulse on and off twice just before the threading then the threading LED comes on Z moves but no pull out at the end of the thread but a slight dwell. If I jog the X &Z away and retstart the program it does sinc to the same pitch so it is consistant, and why am I allowed to use the feed hold in mid thread because that just screwed everything up.
