I think you are doing the best thing by checking in the Denford forum.

The CSMIO was updated by CS Labs a couple of years ago, and the new version was externally labelled FP4. If you purchased it recently you will have the FP4 version and it will be so marked on the front. Either way you are presumeably using plugin version 2.910, which is the latest that supports Mach3.

None of this is material to your issue, I was just interested. I have the FP4 but use the v3 plugin for Mach4.

Hi,

Quote
I have already tried a 9v battery and the speed doesn't increase any more than it does for a 1.5v battery. It does sound like a driver issue but they were working fine with the old controller.
That doesn't sound right. If the servo amp and servo can't do the business it won't matter
how you tune the CSMIO.

You absolutely HAVE TO GET THE SERVO TO RUN AT MAXIMUM OUTPUT if you are ever to have the chance of tuning the controller.

Hi,
could your servo amp be current controlled not voltage controlled?

Could it further be that even if the servo is voltage input, it is set for position or torque control rather than velocity control?

Hi,
your right Allan, its definitely sounding like the servo amp is either faulty or set up differently.

Hi,
if this is an analogue input servo amp then position,velocity or torque mode don't make
sense.

Analogue voltage (or current) input is amplified to an analogue output  that is a voltage and
current, for a shaft output of speed and torque.

The servo is in position when the error between the step/dir command and the encoder feedback is zero,
this calculation/measurement is made by the controller, in this case the CSMIO.

Hi hughes674,
can you post the details of the servos and especially the servo amps?

Pics, manuals and anything else you've got.

Really appreciate your time on this. I'll post anything I get back from Denford.

Hi,
what model motors do you have?
Do they have a Tacho?
Is the Tacho hooked up?

When you hooked up the 9V battery the servo should have gone nuts, nearly full speed, if it didn't you have a problem that must be sorted
before hooking it to the CSMIO.

To what terminals did you hook the battery?

Note there are Hi and Lo Tach terminals and Hi and Lo Command terminals....you want Command terminals.
