Spindle speed
« on: March 25, 2011, 02:32:25 PM »
Hi,

Im looking to try to use the pid loop available for spindle speed to do other things, im feeding in a pulse on the spindle index pin which is being recognised, is there a dro number for where the resulting spindle speed is displayed that i can pick up in a brain? Is it possible to pick up the outputs of the pid loop in a brain aswell?? I want to use the pid loop to control the z axis position, if i were to select the step/dir control in the spindle setup and then configure it to my z axis outputs which are also used byt he g code im sure it would cause problems wouldnt it??

Sorry if i m being a bit vague!
