Re: Software Feature Request: spindle speed adjustment

Yes, true.
Didn't think about that.

Software Feature Request: spindle speed adjustment

Hello,
sometimes I manually adjust spindle rpm while a job is running. I find that the + - rate at which it adjusts the rpm is very quick.
It would be nice to be able to adjust the rate at which these buttons work. Sometimes just a tap will be too much, a slower rate would be nice.
Any thoughts?
Bill

Your commons should all be tied together.

Thank you

Re: Clearpath and C86ACCP question. Resolved

Ok, so the problem was kind of a dumb error on my part. I was using the wrong common for the feed to input 5. Since I use a separate 24v power supply for inputs I just needed to move it over to that power supply.

Re: Clearpath and C86ACCP question.

So back to this. I wired everything according to diagram S15072r4.pdf In looking at different videos and pictures I see that input 5 set as drive ok is green when enabled. I currently have input 5 for drive ok and set as normally open. If I set it to normally closed like everything I read and see I ...

Clearpath question

Hello, I recently changed over to clearpath servos. I won't add any details as of now but in general I seem to get smother motion with the stock motor profiles rather than the autotune. I know there are a lot of variables involved, but has anyone using clearpaths run them without using autotune? Jus...

Re: Clearpath and C86ACCP question.

He says, OK...Here is the scoop: 1 Ignore the schematics DO NOT SET ANY INPUT TO DriveOk at this time DO THIS LAST!!! 2 Put a wire jumper across the 2 terminals next to the power input terminals (new ones come this way) 3 Power the 86accp from the Acorn4 +24VDC& COM terminals, so it is on when ...
