can you see Input1 changing signal in diagnostic Screen ?

While is moving

Hi Ziad,

only had time for a quick look.

i think

Pr0.06 --> 1
Pr0.07 --> 3

or

Pr0.06 --> 0
Pr0.07 --> 3

should be ok.

Ok let's try and error

please change

    'look for OEMTRIG1
    If Not IsActive(OEMTRIG1) Then

to

    'look for OEMTRIG1
    If IsActive(OEMTRIG1) = False Then

should be the same put try please.

Hi,

next try, the problem is i have no real trigger to lock the stop dog

Ok Mike,

depending on the fact, that i am getting older
some processes of thinking taking more time.

so the function GetTurretpos() has got a little brother
witch is called GetNextTurretPos() witch will bring us
the possibility to touch the "brake" early enough to stop
in the wright position.

here the code:

Code: [Select]
Sub Main()
' -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
' TPS 18.10.2015  
' Toolchange for a 8 place turret
' V 4.0.0

' pin3 is mapped to Input2
' pin4 is mapped to Input3
' pin5 is mapped to Input4
' charger seated is mapped to OEMTRIG1

'get the new tool ---------------------------------------------------------------
tool = GetSelectedTool()

' nothing to do
If GetSelectedTool() = GetCurrentTool() Then
     message("Tool is the same NO tool change needed")
   End
End If
 
If  tool > 8 Or tool < 1 Then 'check tool number to be in range
    Message (" Tool " & tool & " is not a valid Number 1-8 ONLY, ENDING Program RUN ")
    DoButton(3)
    End
End If

 
Dim NextTurretPos As Long
NextTurretPos = 0

'get actual starttime
Starttime = Timer

tryagain:

   ActivateSignal(output5)  'unlocks stop dog
   Sleep(1000)              'wait for a second
   ActivateSignal(OutPut6)  'turn air motor on
  
   While NextTurretPos <> tool 'turn until we are in the wright position
      NextTurretPos = GetNextTurret()

      'give the other inputs a chance
      If ActTurretPos <> 0 Then
        Sleep(50)
        NextTurretPos = GetNextTurret() 'read NextTurretpos again
      End if
      
      Akttime = Timer
      If Akttime - Starttime > 20 Then 'Timeout 20s

End Sub

    If IsActive(Input1) Then
        GetTurret = GetTurret + 1
    End If

        GetTurret = GetTurret + 2
    End If

    End If
