Re: encoder

The numbers next to the terminals correspond to the pin number in the connector.

I agree, it does not look like it's wired correctly.

Re: Retrofit 2.0 TREE J325

So its working when you moved the Y drive to X. How about when you move the X to Y. Does the problem follow the drive and now on Y? Strange, if you say all three drives are programmed all the same. I assume the X/Y motors are the same? Did you make sure all connectors are securely tightened? You may...

Re: Retrofit 2.0 TREE J325

I think it's servo PID tuning needed
That's why I suggested you copy the values from the Y drive to the X drive as a starting point

Re: Hallmark ITTP Probe

All you are doing is grounding the 24vdc signal from Acorn to activate it's input

Re: Retrofit 2.0 TREE J325

I have motion on all 3 axis and I am working to tune/ set up the turns ratios and generally get axes moving smoothly. I am having an issue with the X axis moving well in one direction and "stuttering"/moving slower in the other direction. I will go check all the settings with the DMM prog...

Re: encoder

Lathe : Techno-Isel encoder: omron e6b2-cwz1x Controller: Acorn Chanel b flatlines when connected to Acorn. Encoder works when not connected to machine. What is the next step to resolve this problem? Assume this is the cheap ebay knock off of a GENUINE Omron encoder? Provide us the color code of th...

Re: Hallmark ITTP Probe

I went back and watch one of Cliff's videos. He has no visual indicator that I could see. If this is correct, then he is simply OPENING the circuit when the probe trips. Should be a non issue with Acorn. You will just open the probe tripped circuit and yes you would setup for NC probe. I only showed...

Re: My Sherline chucker lathe & 5400 mill with Acorn control build

THANK YOU! For the videos! In your videos, your machine needs to home to Z+ Y+ X+ Your X soft limit is incorrect. It should be a NEGATIVE value In the homing and travel screen, you need to change homing direction to a +M92 for Axis 1 (X) You probably also have the X axis moving the wrong direction a...

Re: Hallmark ITTP Probe

You can put a connector on the ITTP, one pin COMMON, one pin SIGNAL, You can then jumper from COM to PROBE detect. Using a CPC (Circular Pin Connector) similar to the DP-4 https://www.centroidcnc.com/downloads/dp4_probe_manual.pdf Cliff makes a good probe. He put a lot of R&D into it, and he liq...
