Pendant/remote conrtol box Button choices???
« on: October 10, 2007, 04:05:13 PM »
OK, I am going to start designing my mill setup soon.  I will be using a NC pod to interface my Xylotex driver board to my laptop.  I was thinking about making a remote control stn for the main functions,  NCpod has 5 inputs and an E-Stop.  What would be some reccomendations for usefull Inputs.   Just dont want to be like "Man, I shoulda added thaat finction" or "why didnt I add that?"

Thx in advance

I would want to be able to choose each axis, Have an MPG for sure, choose step size,  Zero each axis, a go to zero button would be nice, enable to lock out the pendant, all except e-stop. Would have to have an e-stop. Cycle start, and cycle stop would be nice additions. I think one of the suppliers are going to release one soon.

;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D
