Re: Denford Triac Carousel ATC

See page 13: https://www.centroidcnc.com/centroid_diy/downloads/acorn_documentation/acorn_wizard_input_output_plc_functions_v4.8.pdf That page does not specifically mention the Ether1616, because those functions are not limited to the Ether1616 outputs; nor are any of the other functions prohibited...

Re: Steps per Rev / Pulse Frequency Relationship? Panasonic Servos.

A lot of the info is very pertinent to steppers and I understand the logic. With higher end servo systems (and I put Panasonic in this bucket), there are other variables to consider. It just feels 'wrong' to modify the overall turns ratio when I know mechanically it *should* move 5mm per revolution....

Re: Steps per Rev / Pulse Frequency Relationship? Panasonic Servos.

Looking at the Panasonic manual, it states 500K Pulse / Sec for the photocoupler / line driver and up to 8M Pulse per Sec on the Line Receiver. I'm 99% sure that I have gone into the Photcoupler / Line Driver input.

Steps per Rev / Pulse Frequency Relationship? Panasonic Servos.

On the Denford Triac I am converting, this uses ballscrews with a pitch of 5mm per turn. The Panasonic Minas A6 system uses 10000 pulses per revolution as the default setting however this can be changed. Currently the Acorn setup is set at 100K Step Rate. The gearing I am using on the X Y and Z driv...

Re: Denford Triac Carousel ATC

Report attached. I can see in the .src file the outputs on Eth1616 are mapped.

Oddly the M6 file isnt correct but I have a backup (I use OUTPUT 5 etc onwards) as I'm struggling to address the Eth1616 Board.
