Galil / Re: Galil controller compatability (what works with the plugin)
« on: October 27, 2011, 07:04:52 PM »
the pin numbers are set out quite clearly in the galil plugin pdf instructions (on machs plugin page) might take a couple of re re-reads to understand fully.
only map whatever axis you are using. ie, if your using 3 only map x y z and spindle.
limits must be wired or shorted out (for testing)

im not sure but believe you uncheck the use linear interpolation on the 41 series galil ? worth a try

re g code. are all axis which are called in the code mapped? ie x y z all set as per instructions? if one isnt it cant move so will stop.
if that doesnt work, post your settings here and the start of the code you are trying to run

set as mt1 or mt-1
remember to use the bn command to save any changes
(this is to use the analogue input to your servo drives with the galil closing the loop)
if you use step/ direction input to your drives then the loop is closed by the drives not by the galil

if you can set your drives to use the torque input, that is the best method with the galil(that i have found)

couldnt get this one reliable... seems ive found a glitchy bug.
ripped out and replaced with 2153.

ok. it works all the time if ive set data record from dma channel instead of 2nd fifo.
 however after a restart i have to redo this in smarterm or it switches back to 2nd fifo.
is there a command to burn the data record from dma to the control.?

just totally set up another pc to see if this was the case with another brand new 1750. same result

weird. it shows dro correctly if i have smarterm and data record open (dro shows in mach3 as moving) close smarterm and dro doesnt move... scratching my head!
galil is 1750 model

il be honest, ive never tried to run just single phase on the larger units.  if i get time il wire up a 2kw j2s today and try it see if it errors or outputs.
i know i read it on some of mitsubishi literature somewhere though.
most of my machines use up to 750watt mitsi, which are fine on single phase.
my big machines ive left with original dc motors and run via galil. this is one of them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqQqNpQkD4c
what are you converting?

no.
the 3.5kw requires 3 phase 220v (not 380v like we have in uk) to produce the output, single phase to run the drive electronics (split into 2 seperate circuits)
they let out a very loud bang if you connect them to 380v... dont ask!

re the 2kw servo. is it definately the s encoder and not the ose encoder?  i have one here with ose encoder which is 1 million counts/rev, but cant find a drive for it.

i have new 2kw j2s drives and motors here if you want to spend money...lol

beware as well. the bigger drives require 3 phase @ 220 volts (not 380v as we have in the uk) so you either require 3 phase tansformer or a 4series drive for our voltage.
you can run up to 750 watts off single phase ok
