Galil 41X4
« on: December 17, 2012, 01:03:45 PM »
I have a mill with Galil 41x4 running. I am totally a novice at this so forgive the stupidity and somtimes stupid question. There are 2 item I would luv to pursue.
1: What Mach3 wizards can I run thru the Galil setup.
2: Can  I use the Homann MP-03 with this setup theu the 9 pin setup.

racecar,
I have had trouble with the Modbus based stuff that needs to pass data quickly to Mach. There is a 100ms latency that may cause jerky motion should not be a problem when Mach4 is out). I have been successful with the MPG-04 from CNC4PC. Any MPG will likely need brain files to get proper communication with Mach.

Cheers,
Kenny

Not to worry you, the hardwired MPG (into the Galil inputs) works very well indeed and the brain files aren't too hard to do either. I just am not comfortable with motion depending on a device that only communicates every 100ms either. Think broken tools or worse!
