S code problem
« on: September 16, 2012, 01:55:38 PM »
I am Johnny , , I bought a shopmaster patriot. Dan helped me up date a few things but we could never get the S code to work. No mater what S### you use, it runs 500. Dan tried to help me on the phone but we didn't get it done and of course his time is quite valueable. Any help would be a good thing.

Do you have a link to a manual for that machine?

in a round about way. The manual was sent in a pdf file , I found a link in another forum. There is 2 links here. My book is  for the E 100 series not the A 100

What is your spindle controller? I assume the VFD takes a 0-10v input for speed so you must have some form of controller that can convert either PWM or Step signals to 0-10v.

I am a electronics dummy but I believe you mean the gecko G540. I sent pics to Dan and he checked things and had me up date 5 wires and change settings in the configuration. Every thing worked but the S code and of course Dan can't keep messing with me

Ok that will be it as I believe the G540 can output an analogue signal.
If you attach your xml I will have a look and see how you have it set up.

You will have to use the additional options button on the reply page to browse to that file and attach to the forum.

Try changing the Spindle Relays to 1 and 2 (config menu then Ports and Pins then Spindle Setup)
