Galil / galilcables/connectors
« on: March 27, 2013, 09:49:40 PM »
Does anyone know of a supplier for the Amp 2-5175677-9 100 pin connector?  I have decided that you can grow old waiting for a cable to show up on ebay.  About a third of the ICM-1900 and ICM-2900 modules have cables with them..  There must be a lot of cables being thrown away out there.

I searched the world over and there is one and only one supplier for this connector:  Online Components out of Nevada.  They charge $33.72 for what should be an $18-20 part.  At that kind of price,  it makes more sense to byte the bullet and pay the price for a cable direct from Galil.

3M makes a similar Mind D connector that sells for less than $14.  Only catch is that it requires a $4500 press fixture to install it on the cable.

Maybe this is a battle that just can't be won.

Galil / Galil Slave Axis
« on: March 19, 2013, 04:28:32 PM »
Could someone please write a concise set of instructions how to make a Galil W axis slave to the X axis.  The configure slave does not work.  I found a couple of threads that mentioned using gantry mode directly in the Galil control, but the MPG won't work for that axis.  So far, I am less than impressed with the Galil hardware or the Mach 3 Galil plugins V 4.4 or 4.5.  I have been trying for days to make this work.

At least axis slave worked in the G100 plugin.

Mach3 and G-Rex / Mach IV Tool Offset
« on: May 02, 2006, 07:24:59 PM »
I have my GREX/Mach IV system up and running.  Great stuff!    It appears that the start and end points of a line are wrong when using part offset and/or scaling.  Has anyone else seen this?

General Mach Discussion / USB Control

I notice that on the engine configuration ports screen there is a section labeled "USB Mode".  Can anyone tell me what hardware is required to use this mode?
