Hi Ghantos,

no it is not done in Mach3 itselv.
you have to go to config -> configure plugins -> then select the CSLAB pluging -> config.
in the window wicht is showing up you can configure the index input for every axis.

anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

Thanks a lot !
I know that, but my question where to map the input for the homing ?
Is it in mach3?

From your experience , which controller better
Dspmc of vital or the csmio-a from CS-lab??

Please let me know

Hi,

the home limit switch input is mapped in mach3 ports&pins.

Sorry i do not have any experience with Dspmc ,
but my CSMIO is working very well.

Sorry I misspoke, I was thinking of the Fault signal inputs, you have to tell the plugin which pin they are connected to.
As Thomas has said the home switches need set in Ports and Pins and you then enable Index Homing in the plugin and enter the count of each axes encoder there as well.

Like Thomas I have never used the DSPMC so can not say how it compares to the CSMIO/IP-A but I can say the IP-A is an excellent controller and definitely the best I have used.

Thanks Hood and Thomas ,
Really I ask a lot because up to now I did not get the controller to start the project.

And I want yo get as much as I can information yo ease the getting started with hje job.

Q:
What is the "step per" in mach and the encoder counts in the plugin !

Should both be the same?

Regards,
Ghantos

No they will not be the same.
The encoder counts is what the encoder outputs in one revolution, for example if it is a 2500 line encoder then that would be 10,000 pulses per rev, if its a 2000 line encoder then it would be 8000 pulses per rev.

The steps per unit in Mach will be determined by the encoder pulses per rev, what gearing you have between motor and screw and what the pitch of the screw is.
For example if you have a 5mm pitch screw and the gearing is 2:1 between motor and screw and the encoder is 2500 line (10000 ppr) then the steps per unit would be
10000 x 2 /5 = 4000steps per mm

Dear hood and all friends,
Thank you a lot at this time.
I hope to get the controller soon and start to analyse the job.

Ghantos

Dear hood ,
My machine has a servo DC motors with tachometer.
 
Now, I Ask if the csmio-A supports this kind of servos

And if the setting the PID of this servo is different than the ac servo.

Today I got the kit and I want to start with the axes.
Regards,
Ghantos

Hi Ghantos,

if your servo controllers do not support a Encoder Simulation, you have to
install seperate Encoders/glas linear guides or thomething like this.

post some more Information about yor drives.

dear Hood;
 my machine that i need to retrofit has Bosch CC100 controller.
it has  DC servo Dirves Bosch of SM- 10/20
servo motors has Encoder that connected to the CNC controller Not to the Servo Drive.

with DSPMC of vital no problem, i think they have the same property so i also think that it should not be a problem.

please let me know
