Re: Error in RT-200 Manual wiring diagram?

That is correct because the return for the power for the encoder signals should be the same as the return for the power for your inputs.

Re: alarm 916

It's most likely because parameter 11 is set to -14 rather than 14. From the main screen press F1(Setup)->F3(Config)->default password is 137->F3(Params). Change the value of parameter 11 and press F10(Save). See if that helps you out.

Re: 401 PLC Error Dected

The majority of times that message is due to either the incorrect fiber optic cable not being firmly seated in its respective socket or power to the PLC. There are a couple of power LEDs on the DC3IO, +5, +12, and -12. Are they on? Chances are that they aren't. Even if they are on, I would recommend...

Re: how to upgrade CNC10 to a new computer

Unfortunately, the only way to find out would be to test it out but if I was going to guess, I would say that you are going to find out that it will not work. Newer motherboards aren't compatible with the Linux kernel that your CNC10 software is built on. That is one of the reasons why Centroid swit...

Re: blocks of Intercon?

Rick, A block is a line of code. For example the attached Intercon program has 9 blocks. Fortunately, the first block, which is your Header, and the last block, which is the End of Program line, do not count as the limiting blocks of Intercon. When it is said that there is a limit of 20 blocks or li...

Re: 100 Step MPG - reverse dial direction

I apologize. I was looking into the encoder signals rather than the MPG encoder signals. The signals on the ALLIN1DC board layout are the correct signals. Pin 1 of the MPG connector starts with +B then -B then +A then -A.

Re: 100 Step MPG - reverse dial direction

I am a little confused. Attached are the photos from pages 115 and 139 of the ALLIN1DC installation manual and the encoder pinout on both pages are exactly the same. The only difference is that on one page the signal's compliment is designated with a backwards slash, \, while on the other page it is...

Re: is 3.04 still available?

Yes, you can still install CNC11 v3.04 if you wish but I would recommend against it. If you provide me with your email address, I can email it to you. Personally, I don't think that is your issue. The CNC11 software defaults to a Feed per Revolution, G99, state. If the feedrates in your program are ...

Re: 100 Step MPG - reverse dial direction

Jay,

Unfortunately, there isn't anything that can be done in the CNC software to reverse the direction of the MPG encoder signals. You will have to physically swap the A signal with the B signal and the /A signal with the /B signal.
