hello Tony,

attached a first (very raw) Version for the wizard.

please expand to your addon Folder.
then copy m400.m1s and m401.m1s to your Profile/macrofolder.

add this code:

Code: [Select]
'calculate the actual value from laser
'based on (rawvalue * multiplicator) - offset
actmm = GetUserDro(1000) * GetUserDro(1150)
SetUserDro(1151, actmm )
SetUserDro(1154, 1000.0 - actmm -GetUserDro(1153))

to your macropump.m1s and make sure macropump is enabled in General config.

restart Mach3.

then you should see the wizard witch is named "laser digitizise wizard"

open the wizard and test.

Thomas

Hello Tony,

according to the Manuals i would connect the laser like this (if the UC300 has a external 5V supply)

il1000 Brown uc300 anaolg plug pin1 -> 12V
il1000 Blue uc300 anaolg plug pin2 -> 0V
il1000 orange uc300 anaolg plug pin3 -> analog Input1
il1000 shield uc300 anaolg plug pin5 -> gnd

(if the UC300 has no external 5V supply)

il1000 Brown external power supply -> 10-30VDC
il1000 Blue external power supply -> 0V
il1000 orange uc300 anaolg plug pin3 -> analog Input1
il1000 shield uc300 anaolg plug pin5 -> gnd

and if i understand UC300 Manual we should get a value in OEMDRO(1000)

but you have to do this from the il1000 Manual:

"3-1 Operation When the Power is Turned on for the First Time" (page 3-2)
"3-3 Initial Reset (Initialize)" (page 3-8)

as well.

Tony,
still got not Response from Keyence for the manual.
i think i will have a phone call tomorrow.

Your "project" with this laser sound's like an new "Challenge", but if you want i am
in this Challenge.

let's start (but when i think about it, we started allready ;))

Tony,
the uc300 Sounds good, it has 2 analog Inputs 0-10V.

tryed to download the Manual for the il1000, had to registrate to
get it, but registation is not veryfied till now.

i will come back here as soon i have the Manual.

can you please describe what you exactly want to do with this sensor.

Thank you Thomas

ok,
had a quick look on Keyence Hompage

il300 has range from 160 to 450 mm
il1000 can have following Outputs

±5 V, 1 bis 5 V, 0 bis 5 V Ausgangsimpedanz 100 Ω*1
4 bis 20 mA, Max. Lastwiderstand: 350 Ω*1

so first question, witch type do you have ?
second question, what Hardware (BOB or Motion Controller) do you use, to see how it could be connected.

Thomas
