General Mach Discussion / Re: Delta VFD control from Mach
« on: November 03, 2011, 12:11:25 PM »
Hi Don,

Welcome to the forum.

The VFD requires a 0 - 10 Volt dc source to control the speed and Mach has a PWM output intended for operating a VFD.
You need a controller board to convert the PWM signal to the 0 - 10V such as this http://www.cnc4pc.com/Store/osc/product_info.php?cPath=25&products_id=303 which also has the on/off - forward/reverse relays.

A couple of the parts that will no longer be used.

Graviner (Kidde) fire extinguisher system nozzle (1956).
A fire detector, presumably using a eutectic alloy to bridge two contacts (1965).

Both of these, together with one more nozzle and two more detectors were originally fitted to the outer casing above the apu.

dear tweakie


is it right ?,to change the step to get the corect pitch ,we just set the motor tunning # stepp per # only or we need adjust at another place at mach3?

pls advise.

thank you.

It is just set in motor tuning.
After changing the axis steps, save axis settings then proceed to the next axis etc.

Hi Asen,

You also need to know how many "microsteps" your controller is set to.

As an example - I use 1/8 microsteps so...  200 steps per rev = 8 x 200 = 1600 microsteps per rev = 1600 / 5 mm pitch = 320 steps per unit

You need to get the steps per unit right, for your installation, before you proceed. Perhaps read the manual again, use Al's calculator mentioned previously to calculate the steps.

I fully appreciate the difficulties involved here, when I started it all seemed so daunting but once you have got a grip on this then it all falls into place and then just seems so simple.  ;)

General Mach Discussion / Re: BLOWN DRIVE BOARD
« on: November 01, 2011, 01:07:47 PM »
Hi Graham,

The motors are of Chinese manufacture and quality is unknown. http://www.dhgate.com/wholesale/stepper-motor/c037101001-8.html

They appear to be 2.8 Amps per phase perhaps a good idea to check that you are not exceeding this.

Hi Graham,

It has to be an extremely poor quality motor to short internally so best check all your motors and wiring.
It would not be practical to try and protect an existing driver against short or sudden open circuit but Gecko (I think) make a drive which is almost destruction proof if you are desperate, but they are not cheap.

Hi Andrea,

I like your new VSC - it is very neat - (why is your equipment wiring always so neat and tidy ??  ;D ).

I have been working on a, perhaps, similar device to control laser power from (a spare axis) step and direction signals in order to get away from the Mach PWM output which conflicts with the Impact / Laser plugin operation. I never thought of using the LM331 as I seem to do everything these days with the Microchip PIC controllers.

Keep up the excellent work, your website is a real inspiration.

If I get guaranteed support and operation of the software are also ready to buy immediately.

Hi Gionata,

The support for Mach and the speedy resolution of any problems you may encounter is second to none and the size and popularity of this forum (as well as on the Zone) is testament to that.
There are some, very basic, demo GCodes here http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,18345.0.html which are within the 500 line limit and intended for Mach evaluation just to get a feel of how it performs with any particular machine.

Everything has to have an identification label (cleaned for the photo). Sadly the Morris marque now belongs to the Nanjing Automobile Corp. and the Morris oxford site is now a business park but for this little oil cooler the memory lives on.

Unfortunately the original oil pressure sender has expired so, for the time being, a more recent model is going to be used.

Excellent Andrea.
Did you design the head/nose that actually holds the studs or is this a proprietary device ??
