Re: Novaturn won't connect

It could be any one of the below. 1. Have you installed the USB drivers? The 32 bit & 64 bit USB drivers should be on the cd but you can download them from, http://website.denford.ltd.uk/software-downloads-support/ 2. Make sure you have the correct machine selected. http://www.denfordata.com/bb/view...

Re: Please help juddering not homing

Nothing should move on the machine until it's connected to VRMilling.

Does the green LED on the NextStep control card light up?

Re: Turn 270 stopping at tool change

Does your machine have a manual toolpost or automatic toolpost fitted?

Check the settings in the VRTurning parameters.

Auto Changer in Tool Change section should be,

0 = Manual Toolpost.
1 = Automatic Toolpost.

Re: correct parameters?

It's a long time since I have worked on one of these.

Have you set diagnostic 453 bit 0 to a 1? (It only changes momentarily) Diagnostic Setup Marker).

Which belt do you have?

We fitted a blue spine type belt on the early machines & then changed over to a tooth belt.

If you can add a picture to clarify.

Re: nova turn software issue

If you open up VRTurning & then open up the Setup Parameters (password is denny) you will need to change the mint file in communications for the Novaturn NS. It should read
C:\Program Files (x86)\Denford\VRTurning\NovaTurnNS.mnt
& not
C:\Program Files (x86)\Denford\VRTurning\NovaTurn.mnt

Re: VR Turning and serial port.

Hi Max

Yes you can replace it with the 2.1 EPROOM & then connect using VR Turning.
