Re: Bridgeport Boss5 to Centroid Acorn retrofit

Have you tried searching on the forum for Boss5. I have only been on this forum a few weeks and have seen lots of info on Bridgeport machines.

Re: Axis jumping when moving

New up date after checking the voltage for the brake on the Z axis it has 115VDC and the motor calls for 90VDC. What I do not understand is there is the same voltage going to it if the weather I try to move the Z or not. If i disconnect one of the wires there is a click noise and if I try to move th...

Re: Axis jumping when moving

Thank you!!!

Changed parameter 62 to 90 this did not fix it but left it at 90

Then Z axis, to Kp = 0.6, Ki = 0.002, Kd = 1.2 this did not fix it ether. so I changed it back to what it was.

I then installed a new encoder that did not fix it.

Any other suggestions? please and thank you.

ok,
Chased down the wires. One goes to the Qudra drive and the other goes to the square black thing the print say it is a 24V supply.

I am not sure what turns it on or off??? Could it be something that is not programed right in the plc?

Re: Axis jumping when moving

Before buying a new encoder, you might try to expand upon "freeze up", "jump", and "shacking the hole machine" for us. Does the encoder position for the Z axis (as shown under "Abs Pos" on the PID Configuration screen) count consistently when you turn the Z axis motor by hand? Does the '*' next to ...
