Re: Wizard not aware of new macro files

See Chapter 13 of the mill operator's manual. You can write custom macros for M0 - M90 (with a few restrictions). M functions 91 and up are reserved for internal use. If you cannot find a large enough block of M codes for your purposes, just delete some of the provided ones that you don't need. It's...

Re: Where are non volatile values?

Yes, that would have to come from -- or at least through -- the PLC program. In general, if you want a button to turn on/off a state, which persists from job to job and from day to day, it will work best to do it entirely in the PLC program. SV_NV_W1 through SV_NV_W10 are PLC variables ("word&q...

Re: issue with generating G-code from intercon

If you want to try an experiment with v3.08 before updating, edit the program in Intercon and change your Depth Repeat clearance height from incremental to absolute. That is, arrow down to highlight the 0.500 clearance height, and press F1 to remove the INC flag. Then F10/Accept, F10/Post, and see w...

Re: ATRUMP E216 Mill Conversion

For what it's worth, it does appear that the I/O assignments drawn on schematic S14663.r1 are different from what is assumed in PLC program Centroid-Mill-Standard-OAK-ATC-Umbrella-r7.src. The definitions in Centroid-Mill-Standard-OAK-ATC-Umbrella-r7.src are fairly close to what Centroid declared as ...

Re: ATRUMP E216 Mill Conversion

I would expect so. It never hurts to double check the I/O connections shown on the schematic, with the I/O definitions in the PLC program.

Re: ATRUMP E216 Mill Conversion

I do not know of a specific "Atrump" schematic. Even if there were, it would not necessarily have the same wire numbers as what the MIRL installation used. You just need a schematic that shows the usual components of a typical late-model Taiwanese mill with an umbrella-type ATC. Is there n...

Re: Intermittent differential encoder error on x axis only

Can you swap Oak interface cables between X and Z? Swap both ends, so X is still X and Z is still Z, but each axis is using the other's cable. For testing, you could set Machine Parameter 332 = 2, but that is risky. On the one hand, it would let you see whether the failure is partial and fleeting, o...

Re: ATRUMP E216 Mill Conversion

You shouldn't have too much trouble with the ATC, as many of the default assumptions in Centroid's "standard" umbrella-ATC PLC program and macros were made based on machines just like yours.

Isn't this the system with Mitsubishi servo drives?

If so, then the encoder signal at issue is not the one between the motor/encoder and the drive; it is the one between the drive and the Oak.

Re: oak- profile- finish pass direction

When you enter the lines and arcs which make up the Profile, you have to enter them in the order in which you want the final cuts to be made. As Keith suggested, post a current Report, and also copies of the Intercon and CNC programs. On a lathe control, the Intercon program will have a .LTH extensi...
