ARGH heidenhain HELP!
« on: June 27, 2009, 12:18:34 PM »
Ok folks, i have a heidenhain positip 855 digital readout which i have retro-fitted to my senior mill.  Its wonderful, i love it except the z axis encoder only works when its plugged into either the x or y axis then it reads perfectly.  When its plugged into the Z axis it says encoder defective :(  Now, the encoders are ones ive picked up from around the place but they all seem to work ok except when plugged into the z axis.  Are there any settings i have to change in the reaout for it to accept the paticular encoder i have?? I found the users manual online but its not very helpful.  It just seems strange that x and y are good.   Im pulling my hair out!!!
