« 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.

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.

HiCON Motion Controller / Liener scale Feedback
« on: September 24, 2018, 11:14:28 PM »
I have an Enco 10x54 Mill and have 4 Mitsubishi servo motors and drives  (HF-KE73KW1-s100). I am very interested in Closed Loop using Linear scales. Is it possible to use the linear scales as the feed back? Does it matter which linear scale you use; Optical or Magnetic ? etc. Please explain how to set it up. I am planning to purchasing the 7766 stepper, 7737 and the pendent. What else will we need? 

General Mach Discussion / How to use Relays on the 106 I/O board

How do I control relays example:

M7 turns on Relay 2

How do you control Relay 3 through 8?

On my old Centroid machine M94/4 turned on Relay 4. Mach3 does not use M94 commands.

Also How do I assign the relay on command to the user buttons?

Thanks for your time, Boots-2b1
