Control spindle speed with potentiometer and pokeys board
« on: April 05, 2012, 01:07:47 PM »
Hi all
I need some help!
I have a pokeys 56U board and I have a potentiometer connected to it. I want to able to control my spindle speed with it. How would I go about doing this. Would I need to use brains? If so what formula would I need?

I also want to be able to change the feed rate with a different potentiometer.

You can use a Brain or the macropump. I have posted Brans before in the pokeys section that I used for FRO and SRO.

Hood,
Thank you for your response. I am trying to find your post. Any chance you can give me the link to your post on the FRO and SRO.

Thanks again,

No problem. I have not looked at the Brains I linked to since I posted but I am almost certain they are the same as I use now with the exception of the formula will be slightly different as I now use a PLC for the pots rather than the PoKeys.
