General Mach Discussion / hand controllers which is best
« on: May 01, 2014, 05:20:54 AM »
which Hand  controller works best for you ? If you can post links to which controllers you have and use.

I am trying to get some ideas here.

I would like to get a controller that has the following

motion hold
feed dial
rapid dial
cycle start

The wire is for the logics that will be replaced

Ok after talking to the original owner we realized that it may just be a port issue . I went into the config /port pin section and it appears to be correct . . The machine will not jog around still. I'm going to run a new wire from the vdf to the cnc controller as I see that is causing the error on the vdf. That might be the culprit. Original owner rescheduled to see it Wednesday.

I know this is an old thread but would this make the vdf  error out ?

Ok cool I just picked one if them up the other day . I'll try that

Ok I have both the new. Computer and the old hard drive hooked up and both are set up with the mach 3 . I bought the external box for the hard drive just in case . Now I'm thinking I may need to return that box.   good news is I have been in contact with the original owner who. Built this thing and we arranged for him to come over today and help get this thing going. Now the only thing I can think of is maybe one if the wires that goes from the cnc controller board to the vdf is not hooked up properly and is faulting it out. When I transported the machine to my house we had to disconnect the wires in order for us to transport it. Looking at the set up their are some dated connectors and almost all of the wires are just ran like spaghetti with no real protection. So I ordered some correlated wire cover to ad protection . I will update all of you as soon as I can . Thanks so far for the replies .

I was going to download the linex thing and run that to get around the password

Windows XP pro.  If it matters its a Del computer

The converter gets power from the 220 on the wall and then a few wires are connected from the controller .
