Thanks Hood,

I just didn't want the current to   back  feed  and burn something up.

Thanks,
JAckal :)

I'm still chugging along. Getting  control panel together.

If I use a Mach3  brain for a timer that oils the ways every say "8 minutes". Can I also have a  temporary push button so that I can oil it a few times manually  on start up?

Thanks,

JAckal   :)

Just an update on the temp here. I am sure others are having the same  drought and heat. Yesterday got up to 108 deg F  ( 42 Celsius).

Temp inside my shop was 115 deg F ( 46 Cel.)


The temp on the West facing  wall in my shop was 130deg F (54.4 Cel)

Since we don't have a sweating icon:

 >:D :'( >:D :'(

It's not bothering me as bad this summer. I've lost about 20 lbs since last year.

Thanks for all of the good info. I  will probably stay with cords, though.

Will let you know how it turn out, too.

Thanks guys,

I'll check into the extension cords for the USB  & see if I can just replace the keyboard one  with an extension cord.

I'm sure others have had this problem.

There are extension cords available, but what are you guys using?

My mouse is  6.5 feet  (around 2 meters). The keyboard is a little shorter.

One that is 10 feet  (about 3 meters ) would be ideal. The extension cords give you another connection that can become loose, corroded,etc.

Has anyone bought one of those extension cords and used it to replace the factory cord on a mouse or keyboard?

Is there any reason why  this couldn't be done?

Don't want wireless either.

Thanks,

JAckal :)

Thanks guys, for all of the good info.
It seems that when it  gets to the interesting/fun part of wiring, I am covered up in work.   :'(

But, that is good. Without work, I wouldn't need this machine or have a way to pay for it. ;D

For power I was talking about the 80 vdc from the Geckos to the servos.

Here is a diagram to explain it better. Sometimes I have a hard time describing something when I don't know the correct terminology. :-[




My Hurco had it all crammed into a plastic flex loom. The only metal conduit was where chips could get to the limit switches.

Something else. I have a lot of this metal flex conduit.

Would it be  better to put the encoder, power, and limit switch wires  in separate conduit?

X= limit, power, + encoder (3) flexible conduits

Y= limit, power, + encoder (3) flexible conduits

Z= limit, power, + encoder (3) flexible conduits

The conduit is  3/8"  ( 10 mm) dia., so it wouldn't be a big messy hassle.

If it is a waste of effort, tell me that, too. ::)

Thanks,

Guys,

 I appreciate  all the   views & opinions. By you sharing your opposing  situations & remedies, it teaches me to think, instead of you just solving my problems.

Thanks  for all the different aspects  & theories.

Keep the info coming. ;D
