Can I do this jogging with Pokeys?
« on: August 25, 2009, 05:33:39 AM »
Hello I recently bought pokeys55 and want to use it for my milling machine now.

I did some thinking about how I would like to ideally jog with some buttons.
This is what I really would like:

For each direction (-X, +X, -Y, +Y, -Z and +Z) I would like to have two buttons, plus one common 'fast' button.
When pressing the first, it should move 0.01mm (step). When holding longer, it should go into a very slow continues mode (like 0.1mm/sec).
When pressing the second it should move at medium speed (like 10mm/sec), and when pressing the 'fast' button too it should move faster (like 100 or 200mm/sec).

Is this possible with pokey?
If so, how can I do that?
And if not, is there some other way to do that?

Hi!

It is possible to that with PoKeys. There are 3 variants:
- PoKeys is emulating keyboard. You should use arrow, pg up and pg down and shift keys as on your ordinary keyboard
- Use Mach plugin for PoKeys
- You can use MPG with Mach plugin for PoKeys. Look on www.CNC4PC.com.

I do not want to use a MPG so I prefer using Mach plugin for PoKeys.

So can I:

- Define different behaviour when pressing a button short or longer than for instance 1 second?
- Define different behaviour when pressing a button together with some other button?
- Use step jogging and 3 different speeds of contineous jogging without changing speed and mode each time?

You should define that in your software

- Define different behaviour when pressing a button together with some other button?
If you are emulating keyboard, you can use shift, ctrl etc as in your keyboard. If you will use Mach plugin, you should do some programing.
- Use step jogging and 3 different speeds of contineous jogging without changing speed and mode each time?
That is up to you, how you will define them.

Manuals are your friends ;)
