slow Ref All Axis speed for Homing?
« on: January 16, 2015, 05:46:20 AM »
Hia all,
When I Reference my A or X  axis, either in Diagnostics or using Ref All Axis, both my X axis and my A axis usually  overrun the Home switch, because both axis move/spin  quite quickly, causing the Limit switch (on the X axis) to trip.
 On the A axis, the result is that sometimes it homes on one side of the steel slug bolted to the chuck, that passes in front of the proximity switch, but if it overruns, it homes on the other side, giving about a 30 degree difference in the chuck position.
I´ve just read on page 4-10 of the MACH Manual Rev 1.84-A2, that the axis will travel “at a selectable low speed”.
Can anyone tell me where that parameter is selected?
Regards and thanks,
Frank

Config menu then Homing and Limits, you can set the speed there as a 5 of the rapid for that axis.
