Re: Connecting Acorn to Micro 1 driver from an old CNC 4

You do not have to worry about pins 24, CPUVCC, and 26, CPUGND, as the items that use those signals are most likely not even populated on the MICRO1 board.

Re: Touch Screen Monitors

That is something that is easier said than done. There is a lot of coding, that is static, that is in place for the layout of the current virtual control panel. I have mentioned it to our software department to see if the orientation of the virtual control panel can be easily changed at some point i...

Re: Help: Wiring up VFD (Commander SE)

There is a lot of good information on the "sinking" and "sourcing" aspect of inputs here so I hope that it has cleared up your confusion. I do see an issue with your initial wiring for the analog spindle voltage. The AN OUT terminal of the H8 connector on the ACORN should be connected to pin 2 not p...

I do not know if you found it but the link to the G-code that you are asking about was on the same page as the link that you posted but here it is again. http://www.centroidcnc.com/downloads/C_ ... MPLE_1.txt

Re: m code for the spindle brake and release?

Just wanted to make this clear that the standard Centroid control does not have a custom M code that deals with releasing the brake. If you select the SpindleBrakeRelease as an output in the Wizard, the standard PLC program will turn that output on and off based on when the SpindleEnableOut is turni...

Re: How to set keyboard Arrows

Marty is correct. The report feature does work as you would expect it to. If you take a report from a system that is running CNC12 v4.08, you can load that report onto another system that is running CNC12 v4.08 and all of your configuration files will be transferred. You should be able to just start...

Re: Feed rate not consistant

I do not know if you have found what was causing your issue or not but there is nothing in the Centroid control that would double your feedrate other than the feedrate override. Looking at your report, I do see that parameter 39 is set to 200 which means the maximum feedrate percentage for your syst...

Re: Help needed with PM-940m CNC VS conversion to the Acorn Controller

I see that no one has responded to 1 of your questions but if your drive doesn't need the ENA signal, which based on the schematic and manual that you provides it doesn't, then you do not have to worry about that connection. The ENA signal is an Enable signal. Some drives need that signal which tell...

Re: Lathe with stepper motors - limit switch crash

Let me try to clear the confusion. If both of the software travel limits, positive and negative, are set to 0, that is telling the control that there is no software travel limit set for either direction on that axis. When you home a machine, you are NOT actually setting a software limit. You are pro...
