dspMC/IP Motion Controller / Hall Effect for Spindle Speed Feedback
« on: September 05, 2017, 06:46:21 PM »
    Can a Hall Effect be used as Spindle Speed Feedback ? I have a LARGE ! VMC that has high and low range speed through belts, but had a Hall sensor from the OEM .
For Spindle speed feed back. I have Mach4 , everthing works, but spindle has no reference to Mach4 for accurate RPM.

    If its as simple as adding a Pokeys , I can do that ! Is it as responsive as the scripting ? I would like the easiest solution for my application , because I plan to use Mach 4 to revive several old , large
pieces of machinery ( I mean Real Large ) . That are in great shape , and very viable , but have dead controls .

   I'm watching this also , I have a control panel with 33 Push buttons id like to incorporate into my Retrofit.
I spoke with Machmotion and they wouldn't help me either .  I don't have the codeing knowledge to use the examples to write my own scripts.

How are you coming on the Control Panel? I'm retrofitting a large Industrial Machine that has 32 Buttons and a MPG , and was wondering about your success.

 Daz , the carousel is driven by a Geneva wheel , the counter is a Hall sensor on the motor that counts the rotation of the motor. One Pulse for 1 tool position .
The motor is just a ac gearmotor with a contactor. The slide moves to the Spindle with a reversible ac gearmotor and belt drive. It has 2 Hall Sensors, one for
extended and one for retracted. The drawbar on the spindle is air actuated , by a solenoid .

Hey Daz , can you tell me what info you need and I'll post it up. I'd really appreciate some help with this !
I've contacted MM and poppabear , and they are unable to help right now .
Do I need to use a PLC for this ?

  Hello , New to the Board and Mach4 , several years in Machining . Acquired and Old Fadal 6030 VMC . I'm retrofitting with MACH4 and Vital System DSPMC/IP.
It is working very well . But I need help with Scripts and Macros , to damn old to learn. The Machine has a 23 Tool Changer , Umbrella Style . I need to interface it to the
Control. I would be willing to pay for the development.   Thanks All.
