Re: Mach/Smoothstepper to Acorn

It should be a simple swap physically. However it will be an unfamiliar system if coming from Mach. Though different in many ways it seems much more professional. I am in no way displeased with my change to the acorn. I have run SS/USB, SS/Ethernet and via PP, this is the best so far and has more po...

Re: Lab volt 5600 mill and 5500 lathe

Though many LabVolt machines were based on Sherline's, these 2 are definitely a larger class of machine.

They look to be in very good condition too. Most likely barely used, probably wax or plastic use.
The Acorn will be great for those machines. Enjoy

Re: DM-3000 Lathe Acorn conversion

Out of curiosity, did you have the original encoder? If so, was there an issue interfacing with it?
I do have the entire assembly for mine and would like to use it if possible.

Re: MX3660/24V Relay/ Acorn Output pins?

Never mind.
I got the 24v relays working.
I see O4 goes to ground when cycled.
I am getting 24v + from the extra 24v + on the input
on the board. Is that ok?
Is there a reason it appears the 24v is not brought
into the other areas of the board (and require a
jumper to feed that section)?

Re: MX3660/24V Relay/ Acorn Output pins?

Will an SSR work? (on output 3)?

Re: MX3660/24V Relay/ Acorn Output pins?

Maybe I am slow. Should I be using the pins on the Acorn itself? All of my switches and relays are 24v. Should I just set the wizard up using my MX3660 in "drive mode only", then use the input and outputs on the board? Would that allow me to run touch off pad and a probe even though they have differ...

MX3660/24V Relay/ Acorn Output pins?

I am trying to get my relays working on my MX3660. The relays themselves are Crydom 15-32vdc. They work (the relays themselves) as intended when I jump them directly to the 24v power supply. So far no matter what I do via the Acorn I am having no luck. According to the MX3660 manual (which has prove...

Re: Limit switches thru MX3660 or Acorn?

Marty, You dont happen to remember the wiring convention on the Dyna touch off tool thing. I saw you using it on your 2400. I would like to use mine. I left the machine at a friends house to work with the Centroid control. Horribly simple. Do a continuity test from the probe surface to each pin in ...
