Re: Stepperonline CL86T/CL57T with Acorn

Reading all of the above posts I feel comfortable with my intent on using the "Z" axis CL86T stepper servo wired as the Acorn schematic using the DB25 BoB as drawn. Then, wiring the 2 - CL57T stepper servos for my x & y drives as the schematic is drawn using the H2 header on the Acorn...

Re: Hard milling on diy mill with Centroid oak

Nice work. Would love to see the control cabinet, console and some info about the machine. Perhaps some overall pictures of the machine.

Re: New Project!

Slow going but got proximity switches on all axes, X and Y home out correctly, but Z is homing out in the Z- direction, is there a way to Invert it? The axis otherwise is moving correctly. When you jog Z in the negative direction, is it moving in the negative direction? Please ALWAYS post a fresh r...

Re: New DMM Servo install

Always create a fresh report and a COPY of your CNCM directory as back up. When starting from a new software install, having screenshots of all your wizard pages will help you hand key in the values in the wizard once you have done a fresh install. Rename the CNCM directory CNCMOLD and do a fresh in...

Re: New DMM Servo install

Oh how life gets in the the way.. I stepped away from this project several years ago and now I am back at it trying to make it work. Before i left everything seemed to be working with my ZRI homing sequence set to one input (input 2) and with all my home switches being tied in series to input 5. To...

Re: Touch Screen Monitors

Marty - the Viewsonic touchscreens I'm seeing currently seem to be based on IR sensors. Do they still make the resistive ones you refer to? I couldn't see any. https://www.viewsonic.com/uk/products/lcd/TD2223 The link I posted from Amazon (US) are the resistive monitors. They still make them, they ...

Re: New Project!

Given his motors are 160VDC, would direct rectification of 120VAC be too much? I figure rectified would be 169VDC. I would be more concerned about the drive, than the motors. See https://centroidcncforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=9071&p=79927 In my opinion, direct rectification of 120VAC is ...

What is your incoming voltage?
As Marc mentions, you have to have 380v or more coming into the VFD. 240vac single phase won't cut it
