PoKeys / Pokeys57CNC with AMB 1050 FME-1 DI
« on: August 03, 2019, 11:20:55 AM »
Hello,

has somebody running Pokeys57CNC with an AMB (Kress) 1050 FME-1 DI (digital interface) with the 0-10V Output?

The AMB needs +24V, 0V and 0-10V. There is no dedicated GNDi for the 0-10V. 24V and 0-10V uses the same GND. Pokeys57CNC only offers isolated GNDi for the 0-10V. How can I connect the AMB to Pokeys57CNC?

I tried to connect GNDi to machine GND, but then I always get arround 5,6V, even when analog out is not activated.

Do I have to connect it to another PWM out with a small circuit to generate the 0-10V with the same GND?

Thanks

Alex

PoKeys / Pokeys57CNC, Pendant, rotary encoder and macro problems in mach3
« on: February 18, 2018, 04:13:17 AM »
Hello,

I have built a custom pendant with wiring like in the documentation and connected to the pendant connector. I also have added a matrix-keyboard. With the matrix-keyboard I call OEMButtons and on some I call OEMTrig over OEMButton 301.

Everything is working fine, until I use the rotary encoder to move an axis. As soon as the rotary encoder is used, macro execution in mach3 stops working. I can't execute macros. Beeing mapped to buttons in the screenset or over the matrix-keyboard. No macro runs. Only direct calls to OEMButtons work. In screenset and at matrix-keyboard.

When switching to keyboard Jog Mode, macros will run again.

PoKeys57CNC V1.1, Firmware and Software 4.3.8, mach3 plugin from 31.12.17.

Is this behaviour maybe a problem of the firmware, the plugin or a problem of mach3?

VB and the development of wizards / PoKeys57CNC, Matrix Keyboard and Macro
« on: February 13, 2018, 05:40:23 AM »
Hello all together,

I have built a MPG which includes a 4x5 matrix-keyboard. All connected to Pokeys57CNC. All buttons, which are calling OEMButtons working fine.

Now I want to call some functions of the used Schmidt-Screen with the keyboard. When I put the things in macropump, the keys are detected and the functions work. But sometimes when using macropump, some or most buttons of the screen will not work. Also the keys mapped to OEMButtons are not responding (as example: Set X to 0). Looks like mach3 hangs when using macropump tried on Win10 64bit and Win7 32bit).

Now I tried to use OEMTrig#1 to call a macro which contains the function calls. In PoKeys Input-Settings I defined as example OEMLed 1501 and OEMTrig#1 when a key is pressed. Everything is fine and when I test it in a macro, the key press is detected.

code:
If GetOEMLED(1501) =1 Then
 MsgBox("Button 1")
End If


But when I want more keys with different LEDs, only the last MsgBox appears. MsgBox Button 1 and Button 2 is not comming up.

OEMTrig-Macro:

If GetOEMLED(1501) =1 Then
 MsgBox("Button 1")
ElseIf GetOEMLED(1511) =1 Then
 MsgBox("Button 2")
ElseIf GetOEMLED(1512) =1 Then
 MsgBox("Button 3")
End If

alternative also not working:

If GetOEMLED(1501) =1 Then
 MsgBox("Button 1")
End If
If GetOEMLED(1511) =1 Then
 MsgBox("Button 2")
End If
If GetOEMLED(1512) =1 Then
 MsgBox("Button 3")
End If

What do I have to put in the macro, that it will work? Or is this not possible?

For reference the working macropump-code (PoKeys57CNC set to the virtual IOs "Mach3 IO #21-Mach3 IO#24):

If GetIODevInput(0,21) = 1 Then
 MsgBox("Button 1")
End If
If GetIODevInput(0,22) = 1 Then
 MsgBox("Button 2")
End If
If GetIODevInput(0,23) = 1 Then
 MsgBox("Button 3")
End If
If GetIODevInput(0,24) = 1 Then
 MsgBox("Button 4")
End If

Greetings
