Safe and accurate homing speed
« on: November 20, 2007, 11:28:02 AM »
What speed would be safe to run during homing and still get an accurat homing?

Mabye this is like asking: how big is a car?


I run rapids/max speed of 7500mm/m, and are currently homing at 50%.

Are there any answer to this without testing with a dial?

My homing switches are inductive switches that run through a plc

That is the only way you will know for certain. Lots of variables to consider. Mach will be consistant at any speed, it is the other compomemts I worry with. Timing is everything. It isn't recommended to run your home switches through a PLC. You should run those and other time critical inputs-outputs to the PP. Not saying it won't work, just not recommended.
