Re: Contactor Recommendations

You can't go wrong with name-brand contactors. You'll sometimes run into problems with cheap contactors on eBay and Alibaba.

Automation Direct is a good source. Perhaps if you were to explain your exact requirements, a more exact recommendation could be made.

Re: Drawing toolpath takes hours...

Try setting parameter 260=1 to turn on accelerated graphics backplot, and parameter 145 = 1 to turn on fast branching and see if that makes a difference.

Re: Drawing toolpath takes hours...

Where is your feedrate override set? This affects the drawing speed when using F8/Graph. There's a lot of repeats in there, but it takes about 15 seconds to completely preview on my machine the first time and about 3 seconds to redraw.

This is the schematic for the probe/touchoff cable I use. I leave the TT1-B connected all the time.

Re: Jog button in VCP sticks on

You are right. I kept getting confused as you kept mentioning "tool changer" but I see you did say lathe. 1000 is the recommended single thread for lathe and you are well past that.

Re: Wired MPG for Acorn?

You could probably make those work with the AllIn1DC or Oak, but not Acorn.

Re: Jog button in VCP sticks on

Sorry I missed that about the mouse click. I did notice your CPU is just barely over the minimum single thread requirements. I can't help but think it's a computer issue that causing this, but I don't know what to suggest. Sorry.

Re: Jog button in VCP sticks on

Try using the virtual keyboard and not the touchscreen. I'm guessing this is a touchscreen issue. Do you have another monitor you can try?
