PoKeys / Re: Pokeys57CNC & Mach4, spindle question
« on: January 11, 2016, 03:11:17 PM »
Thanks NeoTo this worked like a charm.
But i am faced with a new problem. After i Upgraded to the new firmware (Release:08.01.2016) the load on pokeys57cnc is idling at approximately 80-90%. Funny thing is when i disable pulse engine in Mach4 pokeys plugin, the load decreases to 40-50%. When loaded to 80-90% it causes mach 4 to behave strangely, i get false limit-switch signals etc.
I did not have this problem before i upgraded the firmware.

I am really happy with the motion controller, it was really simple to setup for my first CNC build and i think you guys do a great job!
Again thanks NeoTo for you help!


PoKeys / Pokeys57CNC & Mach4, spindle question
« on: January 03, 2016, 04:35:39 PM »

I am retrofitting a CNC lathe and run into a little problem.
I have a 0.37kW 3P motor that is driven by a Schneider VFD. This VFD takes 0-10V to adjust the freq of the drive. The pokeys57CNC have a 0-10V output, and i would like to use this for spindle speed control. However i am having a hard time figuring out what i need to do in mach4/pokeys software to make this work.

I appreciate all help!
