OK
Unable to find relay on circuit boards anyware that looks out of place

The lady i got the machines from sent down a bag of odd electrical components that i never opened until now

Yep, get the wiring done and a macro  should be fairly easy. I am  crap at VB but should manage something or maybe someone else will come up with something better.

Ah posted at the same time, yes, if the relay is the same contact arrangement it would be good to fit that instead :)

Hi Hood
It's all getting very exciting, I now need to go back and start to make the power circuit for the 12&24v
shouldn't be to hard to do as I have got all of the part's but not necessarily in the right order at moment.  ;D ;D

This will take a few days to sort out but as things are progressing quite quick it's got to be done.

Hi Hood
Just finished mounting new relay for the motor control on new bit of circuit board

Would it be possible at this stage to allocate a port/pin and configure it with mack3

And test the activation of it in manual mode

Hopefully tomorrow or actually latter today I will start to rework the 12v & 24v power supply

If you are meaning just to test the relay then yes, easiest way for the moment would be enable the coolant on Ports and Pins, Spindle Setup and just enter an output number you are not using. Then go to Ports and Pins Output page and enable the output you chose and enter the pin and port numbers for the connection on your BOB. Once done you can toggle the coolant button and the relay should switch on/off as you press the button.

Hi Hood
Got side tracked with family health problems

I have still got to wire up the 12/24v power supply to relay

Hit a mind block with it

It is one transformer with multiple wires coming out of it ( the original orac one)
I have got both 12/24 coming out in dc
the relay needs a common return that also swaps just like the 12/24 side
Will it be OK to join both returns together or will strange things start to happen

Should be I would think but suppose it depends on how the supply is connected internally.
