start relay
« on: January 22, 2009, 09:06:13 PM »
.I made up a one line brain that was to turn on the spindle
with a 5 sec delay as a test.I found that:as soon as the spindle is started
the relays on my breakout board would close.I turned off the brain
and on the spindle setup added a 5 sec delay.This did nothing.
I then turned off the outputs on the ports /pins for the spindle start.
The spindle would still run.I then changed the port and pin numbers to something
stupid ,still worked.
Is there something in the xml file for my Bob Campbell breakout board that is doing this?
I just added a Smooth stepper, might this be the cause?
.Maybe use relays not connected to the breakout board?

any one want to look at the xml files I have to see why the spindle start relays on the campbell
board engage in any state .ie wrong pin #, wrong port # delays added thru brains or spindle
setup.I fact the only way I found so they will not turn on is by removing the DoSpinCW()
in the m3 macro.

Attach your xml and I will have a look.
FYI the delay in Spindle Setup is not a delay in activating the relays, it is a delay to let your spindle get up to speed before the axis will start moving.

Ok dont see anything wrong but not really familiar with that board.
 Just to clarify, does it take an M3 or M4 or screen button press to start the spindle or is it just always on?

It will start with an M3/4 or a button press.

Weird
Is the speed controllable? Think maybe I need to have a look at the manual, which revision of board do you have as I think there are at least a couple.

I'm using rev 5.Yes the speed is controllable.I only discovered this when I
tried to implement a delay for my big mill.I was going to use it for the gear change.
I may have to go back and rethink my gear shift.The gear shift brain is attached.
