Motors too hot - Resolved

Post by Sparrowgun » Tue Nov 28, 2017 4:58 am

Hi guys, I'm converting a small lathe to CNC so I can turn projectiles for my .44 PCP pistol and while I wait for power supply for the steppers etc I am getting used to CNC12 a bit using the bench mode. Using an Acorn which is looking to be pretty good.

When I have the controller in MM mode I'm getting a '412 Motor(s) too hot: job cancelled' message when I run a job. I have nae any motors/steppers hooked up to even get hot, and there doesn't seem to be a thermistor input anywhere anywho.

When running set with inch units it works fine and I can run either the mm or inch files and they run through fine.

Running on an all in one touch screen pc, works pretty well but could do with an SSD.

Had a bit of a look around on here, used the search function, googled to the max and have come up with nothing. Can't even find a list of error codes for the software. Now I resort to posting here.

If it comes up with this when things are actually hooked up and I am forced to run imperially, I won't be greatly amused lol. Anyone else had this issue? Am I missing something pretty basic on the setup pages?

Cheers,

Sam

That is an issue with the Wizards metric conversion of the temperature modeling file.

To correct this, please exit the Acorn software(CNC12)

For lathe delete c:\cnct\cnc.tem

For mill delete c:\cncm\cnc.tem

This will be fixed in next release.

421 Motor(s) too hot - RESOLVED

Post by arnoldino » Tue Nov 28, 2017 9:09 am

Hello,

I'm a newbie and I want to turn a wood lathe into a CNC.
I bought an Acorn and wired to 2 Leadshine motor driver.
I followed the schematics.
I am at bench test stage.
I can JOG the axes, but when I try to run the sample program CNC12 gives me 421 Motor(s) too hot; job cancelled error message.
I don't really know what it means, I mean the motors are not hot.
I tried to see the input signals to check if there is a dedicated input, but I couldn't see anything suspicious.
Is there a description for fault messages?


Thanks
Arnold

That's a new one....which sample program are you trying to run and can you upload a REPORT.ZIP file?
