Sorry, I am talking about all existing keyboard-shortcuts.
The ones of the jog-panel can be displayed, but all the others like described in the manual starting at page 25.
Alt-I, CTRL-E, Alt-J itself and so on.

I want to make a simple and easy to use 1-page-cheatsheet for pinning at my machine that lists all that 3 pages.
Therefore i wanted to know if something has changed or came up new since the last manual-revision.
Okie dokie. Thanks for the explanation. Yeah, I don't think there's been any changes related to the keyboard. Shortcuts. Ever since the VCP was developed PC keyboard jogging and hotkeys have kind of gone to the wayside.

Cool.

Now I can control all 4 axes with lathe on the WMPG, thanks.

Needs some different PLC mod to use the WMPG macro buttons not for macros...

Y on the lathe will bring out "501 invalid character" like before in MDI or program, but B linear works.

I have been playing with the beta version a little. I fired it up last night to find out it had expired. So its time to upload the actual release version.

Problem with Upgrade

Post by GBCues »

All,
I'm sorry to report I'm having a problem after upgrading.
It looks to me like the funcion of DriveOK has changed.
I use it on Input5 to trigger my contactor which then powers my power supplies for my drives. Input 5 goes green, but my contactor doesn't activate.
Report attached.
What did I do wrong?
Thanks
Gary

I renamed the CNCT directories to revert back to CNC 4.62 and the machine comes right up.
Report file from this build is attached.
Thanks

I believe it's that you don't have Output8 set as NoFaultOut.

Sword,
Thanks, but I checked the current Centroid-recommended wiring schematics for my drive and it hasn't changed.
Input 5 is DriveOK
Input8 is EStop.
I'm not sure where you got your recommendation from.

Input8 != Output8
Cheers,

I have CDO. It's like OCD, but the letters are where they should be.
