General Mach Discussion / Re: MACH3PLASMA LIMIT SWITCHES FOR G540/PROMA
« on: February 15, 2018, 01:29:05 AM »
I got Z axis running under test mode, making movement up / down and recognizing itself in mach3. What is M1 home m2 home and m3 home? My M3 Home is lit up with torch on, m1 Home is lit with torch up, m2 home is lit up with torch down.

M1 M2 M3 home are the home liit Switches from X Y and Z axis.
so it Looks like you have  configured home Limits (Config -> Ports&Pins -> Inputs) to the same port and pin like the torch signals.

ok just to confirm wiring:

power supply V+ -> G540 terminal 11
power supply GND -> G540 terminal 12
power supply GND -> Proma terminal COM
Proma terminal UP -> G540 terminal 1
Proma terminal DWN -> G540 terminal 2
Proma terminal ARC -> G540 terminal 3

Mach3 Config -> Ports & Pins -> Inputs
THC ON       - Enabled checked - Port 1 Pin 12
THC UP       - Enabled checked - Port 1 Pin 10
THC DOWN - Enabled checked - Port 1 Pin 11

Mach3 1024 Screen set -> diagostics -right hand side about middle

there are three LED's Torch ON , Torch UP , Torch Down

put just for test a wire from

power supply GND -> G540 terminal 1

now Torch Up LED should be on.

Mach3 jog Speed is based on max Speed of Motor Tuning, not on any F command,

if you want to increase your jog Speed

hit tab key in 1024 Screen set

then hit + and - button in slow jog rate aeria.

example here:

ok, we have the following things in the laser Parameters aeria:
laser raw value-> witch is the value comming from the analog Input (DRO 1000 regardin to the UC300 Manual)

multiplicator -> is the multiplicator to get mm from the raw value

actvalue -> is laser raw value * multiplicator

setpoint (the left one) -> is a known height whre you can "calibrate" the laser to your bed by putting the
laser to this known height an press the "set" button

act value with Offset -> is the result of all

setpoint (the right one) -> is just 1000.0 - setpoint (the left one) 


the main calculation is (see code for macropump):

        actmm = laser raw value * multiplicator
   act value with Offset = 1000.0 - actmm - Offset

i had to use this 1000.0 minus something, because the raw value will be bigger on a deep Point of your
bed then on a high Point.

so i had to reverse the measurement.

hope i could explain the idea in my bad englisch.

btw, after the laser is giving an voltage to the analog Input, the value in Parameter -> laser raw value should Change.

Got it --I think!
I have made the macropump.m1s in vb editor, there is just your code in that file, or should there be other code?

Tony

no no other code is needed.
you have to make sure,that macrupump is enabled in config -> General config.
if not enable it and restart mach.
