Re: settings file for ACORN_rev4, Multiple STEPPERONLINE CL86T Drives

Remy, you need to go back to step one. Did you just wire EVERYTHING up all at once? You need to wire up ONE drive and ONE motor and get that working ON THER BENCH, not on the machine. For anyone new to Acorn it's NOT "best practice" to simply wire EVERYRTHING up and hope that it works. Wir...

Re: settings file for ACORN_rev4, Multiple STEPPERONLINE CL86T Drives

No two machines will be the sane Remy. Please post a current report and the PDF of your own wizard screen shots and we can help you further. Without this info we are just guessing. Did you follow the diagram you linked to?

Re: New build - Weeke Optimat BHP 200 5X12 router with AcornSix

Today I spent time wiring up the KEB F5 VFD to AcornSix and setting up all the inputs and outputs. Very nice VFD with a ton of features. Got the 12HP spindle humming along great. The spindle has it's own braking resistor and it comes to a stop from 24000 RPM to zero in about 3-4 seconds. It'll make ...

Re: New build - Weeke Optimat BHP 200 5X12 router with AcornSix

I just got an email from DMM with more pics and uploaded them to the Google album, link below. They machined a new aluminum magnet mount that threads into the motor shaft where the OEM encoder was. This now holds the new magnet that works with the DMM encoder that they retrofit into the Rexroth moto...

Re: Couplers for CNC Servo Motors

I use Ruland zero backlash couplings. For the jaw (spider) couplings you buy the hubs and spiders separately or you can build a "bundle" by selecting the two hubs and spider durometer you need and it'll come as one part. This is great if you are coupling two different size shafts. You can ...

Re: Stepper online t6 servo motor and driver

Hi Steve, there are a few others using this drive/motor combo. If you do a search in the search box in the upper right of the screen you'll see a post with a link to the schematic you can download. You'll need a DB25 breakout board as these wire to the DB25 on the Acorn. Here's the link for you, goo...

New build - Weeke Optimat BHP 200 5X12 router with AcornSix

This will be my build thread and Google album link as I convert a 2007 Weeke CNC router over to Centroid power. This is a 5X12 CNC router with a HSK 9KW (12HP) ATC spindle bought at a local machine auction. It was a working machine when it came into the shop but I had no clue how to operate it. :D T...

Re: 452 Ethernet Communication Error, CNCPC to Controller - Help! <resolved, "Man, everything is working great. ">

I use Z home on my routers as the reference. This is only accurate if you have accurate and repeatable homing.

What kind of tool touch off do you have? Is it a good quality one? What is your "slow" touch off rate set to?
