HiCON Motion Controller / Re: 7766 board support?
« on: May 04, 2021, 03:40:18 PM »
Steve,
Use the files in the following downloads.
Mach4300-Integra-4.20_Plugin-2.03.41.zip   2202 KB   March 10, 2021
It works fine with Mach4 V4612

Mauri.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply.
With older versions of Mach4 everything works.
So there is nothing wrong with the hardware and Mach4 settings to run the spindle as they are the same as with the new Mach4 version.
I start the Mach4 and then the Controller.
When I turn om the Inverter on the Controller the Inverter starts with the setting of Zero.
When I start the G-Code and it reaches S24000 is measures 10V through to the Inverter.
The next step M03 should do the short to activate the spindle, however this does not happen.
So this signal is not doing this step.
If I do the short manually at the Inverter then the spindle starts.
Any more help would be appreciated.
Regards,
Mauri.

Hi,
Does anyone have the combination of Mach4 V4612 with 7766 HiCON and Huanyang Spindle Inverter.
I can get everything to function except Spindle Start.
S24000 starts the Inverter and sets it to do 24000RPM
But when the M03 processes the spindle it will not start.
All the other functions work as well as the X/Y/X/A 4 motors.
It will process a full engraving cut in the air with no Spindle start.
If anyone has theirs working please provide me with the functioning scripts so I can get mine to work.
Regards,
Mauri.

Steve,
The file below has my Mach4 Input and Output Signal setting for HiCON.
These work just fine for example Mach4 V3804 the spindle starts just fine.
I have used the same settings on many Mach4 Programs for many years and have machined many carvings all without issue.
But now it will not start.

Mauri.

Steve, (smurph)
As requested the Mach4-X3-HiCON.m4prof is attached.

KatzYaakov,
I have used the same script for many years without issue, even before Mach V3804.
It is only the most recent Mach4/HiCON that now has this issue.

Steve, (smurf)
I am having an issue starting our spindle with the latest mach4 versions.
We purchased a new inverter but the same issue came up.
I use HiCON to run it.
We checked all the electricals on our controller and all is fine.
The 10V is being sent.
But the short is not happening.
We tested an older Mach4 version and it worked just fine (wasted purchase)
So the issues are with the newer version of Mach4 and or the Script changes are not working as they should.
Below is my signal script.
If you require the other script changes please advise.
Regards,
Mauri.

Hi,
If I right click the FTP SERVER - MAIN MENUS tab and select "copy link" and then past it, I get the following ftp://anonymous:guest@ftp.machsupport.com/
Is this the reason why I cannot get in?

Hi
I use Microsoft Edge and have has no issues before with this new version or the earlier version or any of Microsoft Explorer versions as I have been accessing it every day for many years.
Unless the software now has determined that the site is unsafe?
