Pokeys57cnc Spindle Questions
« on: April 01, 2017, 11:56:09 AM »
Hi,

Pokeys57cnc is a great product but I am having trouble to configure the spindle.

I am using mach4-hobby demo for now.

I configured my VFD (Chinese Nowforever D100) to work on 0-10V analog input for frequency adjustment. This is connected to PIN17 with PWM enable @ 10kHz like NeoTO recommended on an earlier topic.

The drive need a spindle enable signal to make it turn (Forward in this case). This is active low signal. I connected the VFD COMMON to OC4- and VFD X1 to OC4+. Is that right?

How I can make Mach4 to send active low signal on M3 with this OC4? I can't find what PIN number is OC4 neither on internet or the Pokeys Manual.

Arrrggg not clear!!!




Thanks!
Laurent

Just want to make the topic answered for future reference.

From Technical support:

The OC outputs are part of the 'Pulse engine' and you will find them under 'PoKeys PE' device in Mach4 IO mapping (read more here: http://blog.poscope.com/pokeys57cnc-pinout-explained/).

Hope this help in the future!

Thanks all!
