General Mach Discussion / Re: Spindle index on Optimum D280x700 Vario Lathe
« on: February 21, 2013, 06:52:01 AM »
I got the package yesterday, which was lightning fast compared to the usual Chinese transport eta.
Well I suppose Poland is closer to Denmark in that way ;)

I have started connecting the controller to some M542 drivers I had lying around.
I get the STEP/DIR setup, but how is enable+ and enable- connected?

I eventually plan to use Gecko 203v drivers and they only have one disable pin, how is that connected to the CSMIO?

The answer was just "NĂ³" to a fairly long question, so I wasn't going to ask specifically.
Maybe when someone who is a bit more fluid in English reads my email I'll get a longer answer :D

Just got off the phone with CS-Lab and the answer is no regarding the -M controller.
So I went ahead and ordered the 6axis controller and the encoder module.
I'll post what I learn here.

No worries, I didn't even get the rude part ;)

I guess going with the CSMIO/IP-M + CSMIO-ENC will make my life a lot easier.
Also is it possible to wire in the existing controller to the IO of the CSMIO?

Eventually I may scrap that controller and get some new stepper drivers.
The ones in the controller are 40V ??A (http://www.optimum-machines.com/products/cnc-pc-controls-complete-and-adapter-kit/6/cnc-controller-iii-and-vi/index.html)
What drivers would you recommend?

So the encoder should be attached to an external controller which will then feed the rpm into mach3?
Can you point me in a direction of such one?

If not I have been robbed  ;)

I've attached a picture of its back side as well as my configuration.

Oh and axis control goes over parallel port 1.

I'm feeding Z from the encoder to the spindle index via parallel port 2 pin 15.

It seems to get the right number (sort of).

Using this code to turn a thread:

Code: [Select]
G21
T0 M6 H0
M7 M3
S150
G76 X20.933 Z-10 Q0 P5 H0.1 I27.5 R24 K4 L0 C2 B0.1 T0 J0.1

results in this (thread.png):



I then went a bit back to the chinese encoder using the info you gave me.
I stilll cannot get anything from the Z Z pins but I get reverse proportional values from the A A B B pins (higher rpm = lower value)
The encoder is labeled OIS708-1024/Z3-5LD
