Re: MPG not working and DMM Zaxis faulting

Also, a properly sized line reactor is almost always required for DYN4 drives. Automationdirect.com sells them. You need to size it appropriately. Put it on the line side of the Estop contactor providing power to the drives.

I didn't see one in your cabinet photos.

Re: MPG not working and DMM Zaxis faulting

It seems you have the WMPG configured correctly in parameters. You might reach out to Centroid, to take a look. It is possible you may have a bad Wireless MPG Where is your WMPG antenna?

Re: Can a single output variable control two Relays?

You can always drive a multi pole contactor with appropriate contact ratings for the load with your Estop Relay (Output 1)
Its what I do and what the Acorn System schematic depicts.

Re: Bridgeport Series 1 CNC conversion to Acorn etc.

Generally easier and better to wire the panel out of the cabinet and for bench testing. Easier to correct issues.

Re: "Z axis Max Rate Exceeded" error UPDATE: Now "438 Spindle slave position error"

Marty, I'm not sure if this will help or not, it's been years since I set my mill up, but I had a similar issue when I tried to do rigid taping. The way I cured my problem was to set part thread start position high enough above the part so the spindle had time to establish before it started the thr...
