PWM output in the HIcon 7766
« on: February 05, 2019, 04:22:18 PM »
I'm considering using this board to control a spindle in place of one unused axis' does the Hicon 7766 output a PWM signal? Thanks

Hello,

The user manual of the C41S describes that it converts a PWM input signal and outputs 0-10VDC.

The HiCON Integra has an onboard 0-10V digital to analog output for controlling a spindle.

I'm controlling a second spindle with this board

I'm still wondering if this is compatible with the Hicon 7766 to operate a second spindle using an unused axis?

It's possible to implement a PWM output on the board but would require some time and development fees.

One of our customers uses the SPINDLE_FW/REV signals that each drive a separate spindle. The spindles will only move in one direction with that setup though.

If you would like custom software or firmware modifications you can email sales@vitalsystem.com with your request.
