The door will only unlock when power is supplied to the machine & the Emergency Stop push button is released.


Can you confrm if the Emergency Stop is released.

Re: VR Milling v5.69 released 23rd February 2020

If you can try it on a Non Windows 10 install it should work fine.

Still think it will be Windows 10 creating it's own directory. ( It may be worth searching the hard drive for one of the VRMilling files to see if it has created a copy elsewhere.

Is this a Windows 10 install?

If it is can you check you are logged on as an Administrator. It may be creating a virtual file.

Re: TOE80 Turret Problem

Looking at the electrical drawings the Parity signal on pin 5 is not used.

Re: Microrouter Blown F3 Fuse/Emergency Stop Switch

It`s to stop the Head dropping when the Emergency Stop is pushed in.

We don`t fit it to every machine but it is activated & released by the Emergency stop relay.

Re: ATC (auto tool change) Gearbox info

Hi Pete

Hope you are well.

We changed to 2 pawls as we found that the single pawl was being distorted over time with the grub screw pushing in to it which then caused the centre height to be out. At the same time they were made slightly larger as well.

Re: ATC (auto tool change) Gearbox info

I think we have a couple of motors in stock at Denfords if you are interested? The new Toolchangers we build now have stepper motors fitted but we did modify the toolpost control card on the older machines to limit the power to the motor. I will see if I can locate the drawing when I am next in the ...

Re: TOE80 Turret Problem

Have you checked that you have soldered the encoder back in correctly. The tabs are quite small & close together so you may have bridge 2 connectors.

Re: Microrouter Blown F3 Fuse/Emergency Stop Switch

If it blows the fuse again its probably the Z axis brake & the two diodes connected across 13-15 & 15-0.

Does the CPU power up at all when you connect the USB lead & does it show up in Device Manager on the computer?

Do you have the serial number for the Cyclone.

We should have a copy of all the specific settings on record at Denfords.

Re: Setting Spindle 0 on novaturn

The spindle has an encoder fitted to it but that will only read the relative position.

When the motor is asked to stop it just decelerates at a given ramp & stops. It could be anywhere so you would need to stall it somehow.

Re: Compact 1000 pro E-stop and off on switch

Are you sure the switch is being activated?

There is a bit a play on screw & it needs to be pushed towards the actuator before the 2 button head screws are tightened.
