Re: WTB - 4X4 plasma table

Thanks Keith, but does it have an Acorn plasma controller on it? :mrgreen:

I'll reach out to Joey and see what he has. I need it just to cut those i-beams that I cut for GE. The laser wont reach down inside the web of the i beam unfortunately.

WTB - 4X4 plasma table

I'm just throwing this out there to see what is available. I have retrofit a ShopSabre 5x10 plasma table with Acorn and I no longer need a table this big because we cut most everything on a 12k fiber laser now. That said I have two parts that I cannot cut on the laser and need a cnc plasma for the j...

Re: Claearpat sdsk can't get to enable

I've always used 5v and resistors per the Centroid schematic no matter what the length was and they work perfectly every time so good luck.

Re: Raytool Bm110 laser, Max Photonics 1.5 kw lasersource

Hi Keith, I've been talking to Joey about this as he had some questions about our fiber laser. It would be cool to see this happen.

This would be a question for the UCCNC forum, no? This is a Centroid forum and this software wont work with a UCCNC controller anyway.

Re: Claearpat sdsk can't get to enable

Nothing looks right to me. If you would take the time to read the most recent revision of the Centroid schematics you would see that the Clearpath motors require 5v to the blue, white and black wires. You have them wired to 24 volts. :o You also need resistors on the step, direction and enable lines...

Re: instaled THC now loosing steps

Great album, thanks for the pics. I still cant see if the Y axis has a belt reduction like the X axis. Pic is not detailed enough and too dark when I zoom in. If you know nothing about the motors how did you decide on the current setting for the motors? Have you tried to reduce this? Do the motors g...

Re: CNC12 V5.09 beta REV3 is now available for testing.

The error message you got was because you were trying to restore a report from 5.06 to 5.09 beta which you cannot do. When you got that on screen message you should have pressed F2 and quit. If you pressed F1 and continued it's anyone guess what is now screwed up in the software. You should do a fre...

Re: Cnc Router Fault wiring (clearpath)

You cannot daisy chain the fault signal together. You need a relay for each motor and I use DIN rail relays for my fault signals. Keith once linked to a relay board you can buy on Amazon for under $10 to wire the fault signals up. You series a COM signal through all three relays on the NC closed sid...
