HAve you tried the SPECIAL mach driver for weird computers ?? No kidding there is one.

Out of curiosity what CPU chip is being used any idea ?  intel , amd, etc

General Mach Discussion / Re: fixture specific soft limits
« on: June 09, 2011, 06:32:08 PM »
Are are the fixture locations on the table at the same time?? IS this machine dedicated to JUST this process ?

The best thing you could do is when the program is loaded then do an extents travel of the program code at SAFEZ height THAT will tell the OP IF his code exceeds the fixture capacity.

I do that all the time HERE for plasma work. I have a BUTTON that has code to take the program extents and slowly nagivate the table to each corner of the extents of the program code. That way I can be assured that the program will FIT the material on the table.

How do you create the Program code??? Hand coded or CAM. IF CAM just select a material size that represents the fixture size as background then the OP will SEE if his code runs outside of the box when they create the Program code.

IT may be possible to use the program extents to compare against the FIXTURE extents BUT that is just something the OP has to process and use. You would have to write a MACRO to add to the program so do the work AND IF the OP forgets to include the macro call (;-).

Just thinking out load BUT it may be possible to create a switch that when used would process the Gcode against the fixture extents and prevent you from running the code if it exceeds it.

Let me know IF i can be of help, (;-) TP

YOU need to use a M# higher than M100. Below that is reserved for internal use.

You are on track just remember in your Gcode side you will be required to use a MACRO call as anything like CC0 or CC1 is not allowed

M100 open  ,  M101 close

WHy the LONG sleep?   That would be 100 seconds .

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Have you checked for POWER saver functions being turned on in the bios??

While you are there check to see IF you have any options for the LPT MODE. IF so give each a try.

Bi driectional is good.

OK let me run throught this again.

1  Task manager shows GOOD on the systems resources and performance, no cpu hogs, low CPU % usage.

2  Mach shows a good driver test graph is low spike and steady.

3  Lpt port IS active and setup in pins/ports

4   Getting good signal voltage at port.

5    OLDER computer still runs smooth and fast.

DID i miss anything???

Normally you would tune the velocity loop first then tune the positon loop.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

Dave hae you tired changing the PORT type in the BIOS. You would use EPP.

Dave did you do a straight auto install of the driver? let it assign itself an address. Then use that address.

(;-) TP

OK that is a simple overun system that uses an absoute (grey code) encoder to identify each stop position. I would replace the AC motor with a small DC motor.  I have seen the VB code somewhere for that type of changer.

I think Peter Homann from  MODIO  does a great job with this style system using the Modio to do the fuzzy logic. I would give him shout. HE may have the answer already to go in one simple kit.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

COOL DAVE I will check it out. I have a OEM BOOK that I made up for dros leds.etc I exported the sorted info out of the XLS 2 different ways.

1 way is sorted by TYPE then # (1-300)  and gives the descripttion.

2 way is by TYPE then Description (a-z)

THat way you can look for a function either way.  

The book is about 64 pages long doubles spaced so us old guys can read it. (;-)

If anyone wants a copy I can post it in the Mach ToolBox.

TWEAKIE If I wrote the manual you would be so confused you would migrate to EMC in self defense. DAVE is the VB master(;-)
