Motor drive problems
« on: July 17, 2009, 03:21:13 PM »
I have a 4 motor Rocliff control board. When I jog X+ it runs OK, When i jog X - it runs the same direction. When I jog Y+ nothing happens although the monitor shows that it is running. When I jog z+ Y runs and when I jog Y- it runs the same direction. The forth motor A never runs. Z and A need to run the same, How do I configure this to run properly, or is it a board problem?  
Any help will be greatfull.

Thanks

Its been a while, but it was in the ports and pins configure.  The Y and A was to sinc the two motors. That is also in the configure menu.

Hi;

Check to see if the motor locks up when power is turned on. When power is applied, all motors should lock up. if not check your wiring. I had a bad wire connection on mine. also check your couplings and assure they are not slipping. If all else fails, replace the motor with one that is working to be sure the motor is not bad. Most boards have a place to check output voltage going to the motor. It may still be in your board.
