HiCON Motion Controller / Liener scale Feedback
« on: September 24, 2018, 11:14:28 PM »
I have an Enco 10x54 Mill and have 4 Mitsubishi servo motors and drives  (HF-KE73KW1-s100). I am very interested in Closed Loop using Linear scales. Is it possible to use the linear scales as the feed back? Does it matter which linear scale you use; Optical or Magnetic ? etc. Please explain how to set it up. I am planning to purchasing the 7766 stepper, 7737 and the pendent. What else will we need?

I noticed CNCzone had a Gcode to DXF file converter (http://www.cnczone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8814) - I went to their site and it is not posted any longer. Does anyone have a copy of it? My laser cutter will only use DXF files. I am trying to convert my mill code to run on the laser cutter. Thanks

Hi Hood,

I used the DeActivateSignal (OutPut4) command it works fine. After a little messing around I got all the relays working properly. I wrote a seperate macro for on and off for all 8 relays. I buzzed it out today it worked great.

I did notice in the documentation for the 106 I/O board the the relay numbers are not in order 2.3.4 etc it is 2.3.5. etc I kept trying different pins until I got each relay to work properly. I check the Port Pins Outputs and pin assignments and they were correct. The doc just lists them wrong.

Thanks for your help,

Hi Hood,

Yes thank you, the macro worked fine. Now I can turn them on but how do I turn them off? I tried M9 and it does not work?? Also where can I learn the syntex for the macro language?

Thanks for your help, Boots-2b1

Hi Hood,
I have Cool Air, Mist, Flood, Light, Hold downs controlled by two relays etc. On my other system CNC4 I issued a M94 code in my g-code to close my relays. Example: if the light was connected to Relay 4 In my code I would issue a M94/4 and it would turn on the light. Mach3 does not support the command M94 - so what command do I was to close relays 4-9? I am a electronics engineer, the relays are wired correctly.

How do I control relays example:

M7 turns on Relay 2

How do you control Relay 3 through 8?

On my old Centroid machine M94/4 turned on Relay 4. Mach3 does not use M94 commands.

Also How do I assign the relay on command to the user buttons?

Thanks for your time, Boots-2b1
