Tony,
still got not Response from Keyence for the manual.
i think i will have a phone call tomorrow.

Your "project" with this laser sound's like an new "Challenge", but if you want i am
in this Challenge.

let's start (but when i think about it, we started allready ;))

Interesting project Tony, I'll be following along intently.  :)

There is a bit of info in this catalog, in case you don't have it.

cheers OL yes ive tried using a laser proxy sensor mounted on a high speed z axis but although succesfull and accurate, it is still a time consuming process.
hopefully we can get to grips with the hardware/software in this method because i feel that the bed of nails method of scanning/digitizing is superior when it comes to accuracy to other
systems, certainly systems that are within the scope of the home machinist .

Regards
Tony

If your interested in trying it with Mach4 I posted a teach file script for it not too long ago that may get you almost where you want to be. Would just need to get the register value you will be using for the analog input from the laser instead of Z axis position And automate some moves between readings I think.
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

My guard dog is not what you need to worry about!

I don't have a link handy but you can search this forum for Mach 4 Teach File and find it pretty quick I think.

Ill have a look, but on reflection I dont think i want to be messing about with mach4 right now, as well as trying to get this project working, atleast if I dont have to.

Hello Tony,

according to the Manuals i would connect the laser like this (if the UC300 has a external 5V supply)

il1000 Brown uc300 anaolg plug pin1 -> 12V
il1000 Blue uc300 anaolg plug pin2 -> 0V
il1000 orange uc300 anaolg plug pin3 -> analog Input1
il1000 shield uc300 anaolg plug pin5 -> gnd

(if the UC300 has no external 5V supply)

il1000 Brown external power supply -> 10-30VDC
il1000 Blue external power supply -> 0V
il1000 orange uc300 anaolg plug pin3 -> analog Input1
il1000 shield uc300 anaolg plug pin5 -> gnd

and if i understand UC300 Manual we should get a value in OEMDRO(1000)

but you have to do this from the il1000 Manual:

"3-1 Operation When the Power is Turned on for the First Time" (page 3-2)
"3-3 Initial Reset (Initialize)" (page 3-8)

as well.
