Mach SDK plugin questions and answers. / Re: Impact engraving plugin

Thanks! That definitely gets me started.

I'm also adding a photo for the Active High configuration (the previous was for Active Low) just for future reference.

And a couple more photos as well. Maybe you could look at those too and provide some thoughts on how to set the dip switches, etc. to get things moving.  I can play around with them, no problem, but it looks like there would be an exponential number of combinations possible where either it would pulse, would pulse poorly or not at all.


I'll order the board and post the results back here once things are sorted out.

Hopefully, I won't have too many more questions.


Cheers,
Vogavt


There's also a caveat on their website.

Note:

1. Should be repeated to check the wiring before power. Pick the wrong line may burn the chip!
2. The current setting should not exceed the rated motor current.

I'm looking at a TB6560 TB6560 3A Driver Board x2  (single axis board) found on eBay.
I do understand that I only need to use the A+ and A- (or B+ and B-).

The question is that it has 6 inputs and I'm not sure how to connect it.
Any guidance for starting would be appreciated as I don't want to fry anything!

Features:
Current grade-by-adjustable to meet your demand for a variety of applications.
Semi-automatic flow adjustable.
6N137 high-speed optical coupling, guarantee high speed without losing step.
Plate printed setup instructions operation without manual also.
Tthick teeth radiator, good heat dissipation.
TB6560 3A CNC Router controller stepper motor driver board.
Size: 75*50*35mm (L*W*T)
Rated maximum output: ± 3A, peak 3.5A.
Working voltage DC 10V-35V. Recommended to use a switching power supply DC24V power supply.
For two-phase within 42,57 stepping 3A / four-phase / of line four / six-wire stepper motor, and is not suitable for stepper motor over 3A.
Automatic half current function.
6N137 high-speed optical coupling, guarantee high speed without losing step.
Subdivision: whole step, half-step, step 1/8, 1/16 step, a maximum of 16 Subdivisions.

Hi Vogavt,

A bit more reading for you http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,16446.0.html

I think this explains the construction of the magnet.

Tweakie.

Good one, Tweakie! Got a chuckle out of your link.

Anyway, for the rest of us illiterate in reading schematics posted here, could someone provide a useful answer to my question?

Presuming I've figured out how to build the magnet as Tweakie suggested, what actually drives it?
I have a Gecko 540 (all 4 axis are in use), but can I assume I need to purchase another single driver board and say I hook it up configured for Axis-B and connect the newly constructed impact magnet to it? I do have a second Parallel Port that I could drive the 5th axis with, maybe.

Thanks in advance!
Vogavt

Looks like you're using the same pins for one of your axis and an output. Specifically pins 8 & 9.
I also see you have flood assigned to Pin 7 and Z-axis Dir pin as 7

Go back through the Ports & Pins and clean up the anomalies first.

Are you in Demo Mode?

Xbox360 game controller works great for me!

Do a search here for it. You should get a few hits.

Upload your xml file so we can take a look.

Then through software route the clicks to the FRO and SSO functions.

Could you provide more detail?

Have you determined whether you have any backlash that needs to be compensated for? Do a search for backlash along with what TPS has already suggested.

It's a learning process. You'll get there.
Don't be afraid to ask questions as we were all there once too.

Are you certain that the Z-zero is correct at the surface of the workpiece?

Also, once you load the code, switch to the Toolpath tab.
In the upper right hand corner, you can confirm the limits of the program that is loaded.
DROs can change rather quickly at times so you might have missed it or it could be updating at a rate the picks numbers along the way without reflecting every single move. For example, I was drilling some holes today and even though I know it was pecking in at 0.1" increments, the DRO would show -0.0987, then start retracting, then go down to -0.1997, etc. I am certain the DRO wasn't seeing all the numbers.

Mr. Peter Homann, you sir are a GENIOUS!

I haven't a clue how that setting got changed, but now at 500 and it's smooth as silk again!

Appears to have had no relation to the second parallel port but possibly my clickity-fly with my mouse, just possibly...
Could have also been a corrupted xml at the most inopportune time, but aren't they all..
