General Mach Discussion / Re: Probing - what would i need?

Also want to probe surfaces, XYZ etc

i have all the routines for CSMIO (M31),
only disadvantage the comments are in German,
but this should be the minor Problem.

SmoothStepper USB / Re: Auto zero with ESS not working correctly

I removed the line "Code "G0 Z" &ZProbePos"

try to replace it by I  "Code "G1 Z" &ZProbePos"

Looks like you machine is not able to follow G0 Speed.

can you post your M6 code ?

ok now i got you.

These are two different Pairs of shoes.

one is to use the touch probe to get the tool lenght measured automaticly.

the other is to get workpiece things (X/Y/Z surfaces , Center of inner diameter's and os on)

but both can be combined, to get the tool lenght every time you change a tool.

on one of my machines i only use the Routine to measure the tool lenght only after i had to
replace the tool (broken or dull), and not every regular tool Change.

that depends on your settings  in Gerneral Settings for toolchange,
and on the the code in your M6 macro's.

if you have a multimeter try to get first the signals on the BOB (relay and 0-10V Output)
working without any spindle connected.

you wrote you Need the relay for changing direction of spindle,
but in the Setup you have output1 for CW an CCW, so the
relay will Switch anyway.

in a first step
-i would try to use factory Setting
-set output2 for CW in spindle Setup
-use M4/M5 in MDI to get the relay working first

Hello,
by comparing your settins to the Manual,
i noticed, that the configuration for ENABLE1 and OUTPUT1
are twisted.

ENABLE1 should be pin14
OUTPUT1 should be pin 17

you have it the other way round,
would explain a couple of things.

Hi Dave,

let's say  you have a isolated probe permanent in a holder.
you meassure the lenght of this probe with your height setter for example as tool 200.

if you want to do a probe of your z-surface you do a normal toolchange to tool 200.
then you do a automatic z-Zero (in G54) with the probe, then all other tool height
are correct to this new z-Zero (workpiece).

Thats no other procedure like you do it with your Haimer probe, or ?

Thomas

btw CSMIO uses M31 for probing, but G31 works as well.

Yes a custom screen would be good.
and necessary

I'm trying to figure out how it all plays - currently I have the off-machine setter that reads the heights of all tools including the Haimer probe and then sends that data to the tool table (one at a time)
the probe will be a tool as well

Now, if I use a probe in the spindle - this would set Z,X,Y when it contacts the work in whatever direction?
exactly

So, how are tool lengths set - do i also need a touch-plate as well??
if you use the probe as a tool of tooltable (lenght), it will be the same like your Haimer probe
for Metall surfaces you do not Need a touchplate, on your CSMIO you have seperate connectors
of + and - for each Input, so connect the + direct to 24V supply + and the - to the isolated
probe, this makes necessary that the - of the 24V Power supply is grounded.
now everytime your probe touches the material the Input will come up.
