Re: Centroid CNC PC requirements

anything above 1000 single thread with SSD as c: will work just fine as long as its a clean windows 10 install, and you don't plan on doing any short vector Gcode smoothing for high speed 3D machining... Can you expand on this? You seem to be suggesting the PC's single thread benchmark is directly ...

Re: Touchscreen Monitor deal on Ebay

Depending on what controls the monitor has, you might be able to bring the screen in while maintaining the aspect ratio (so the screen "ends" before you get to the frame). You will need to re-calibrate the touchscreen after you do this of course.

Re: shipping

We typically ship same day of purchase or next day. Shipping is ground via UPS so that will affect the final delivery date depending on where you live.

Re: One PC for multiple Acorns?

Nothing will be unlocked if you try to use a License from another Acorn (it won't give you any capabilities above whats included in the Free). The License file is unique to the specific Acorn hardware.

Re: encoder suitability

The spec sheet on that encoder does not give the signal type. You need a differential quadrature encoder, typically listed as A, A/, B, B/, Z, Z/ (sometimes the 3rd channel is listed as I, I/ but its the same thing). Please see this thread for a detailed explanation: http://centroidcncforum.com/view...

Re: Question to the forum,, VFD / spindle HP recomendation to ridgid tap

For Rigid Tapping, the Rigid Tapping Option would be needed and an encoder belted one to one with the spindle. For the VFD size the "old" rule of thumb was to oversize it according to your spindle motor. Today's VFDs have come a long way and a 2hp VFD should be sufficient for a 2hp motor. If you kee...

Re: Oak vs MPU11/GPIO4D

The additional advantage of the Oak is that is has Position mode control built in (the MPU11/GPIO4D would need Optic Directs for each axis in order to support this). If you don't require position mode with your drives than I would recommend keeping the existing MPU11/GPIO4D.

Re: Bridgeport Boss R2E3 Series II new to me project: Introduction

Thanks for the updated info. Those motors should work great with the ALLIN1DC. Just remove one of the end-caps on the servomotors and see the shaft diameter you have there (the encoders we sell are hollow shaft).

Re: Bridgeport Boss R2E3 Series II new to me project: Introduction

Hello Randy,

Can you post a picture of servomotor data-plates? Sounds like a great ALLILN1DC candidate.
