Ah Ok thought the DSPMC had them. I use current type modules on my PLC for it, got a few very cheap on eBay :)

Hi Hood,

What PLC are you using and is practical to send me the code as a starting point.

I am use a DL06, specifically the D0-06DR from Automation Direct.
What code are you wanting? The PLC ladder?

Hi Hood,

Yep the PLC ladder and any brains that you have done. I will probably do it as macros and brains and just use the DSPMC, but the ladder will be a big help in doing the brains.

I think this is my latest ones, not at the workshop so cant grab them off the lathe and the netbook which will definitely have the latest is aldo at the workshop.

Guys, As I said before, I can live with feed hold and I do drop the FRO down to Zero before the next cycle, but not everbody does.
After my mill has been tested I will be doing a 60" chuck lathe with Fanuc motors and drives so you can imagine the size of the job that's going on it..I need to stop the slide in a reasonable time and this is unreasonable. Rufi did say the acc/dec is set in the DSPMC and he hopes to make it the same as Mach, I thought It would be just a parameter change. I can show you cheesy cheapo 2 axis PC machines that can stop on a dime. It can't do your cutters any good the way it slows down then ramps up again.

Yes I agree, it should be made right, its so close to being good and it is a very important thing to have control over the machine, especially big metal cutting ones.

Ive had a quick look through the machine books. Fortunately I have them. The DC motors have pulse coders and tacho feedback. Ive found the pin outs for the velocity control. I havent found any pin outs for the spindle drive. The servo drives are SCR.  They give a lot more info than I thought they might.

It looks like main axes can be controlled by hooking up the DSPMC analogue out to VCMD on the velocity control units and then finding the old pulse coder input to the "position control board" and using that as encoder input.

The biggest drama will be figuring out the IO, maybe I just have to trace it back.

Hood, you took out the motors and drives and put in new ones, was that because the old ones were dead or did you just want new ones, or was it getting too hard?

Piv, Is this what you in have in your spindle?

VRDY1 & 2  (velocity ready)
TLM5 TLM6 (torque limit)  
OVL 1 & 2 ( overload)
FA FB (fuse alarm)
SDRY 1 SDRY 2 (servo ready)
TH1 & TH2 (thermal)
TLM1 & TLM2 ( it says pin in orient)
TSA TSB (tach)
I will look for the motor pin outs, as I said I did have my motors running, but not for long.
