Problem with an MPG
« on: December 17, 2018, 02:24:54 PM »
The manual pulse generator mentioned in this website was installed according to the instructions provided.

When an axis was selected the carriage immediately moved at whatever jog speed was set. Turning the MPG encoder would add to the speed. The solution was to filter the A and B encoder inputs with a filter value of 1.
The system has an ESS board with a MX4660 on ports 1 and 2, and a C10R10 BOB on port 3 for the MPG

It’s a mystery why those two functions interact. I am adding this post to help anyone who has the same problem and in hopes someone from Artsoft will address it.
