Re: VR Turning and serial port.

Hi Max

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

Re: VR Turning and serial port.

Hi Max

VR Turning will work on either RS232 or USB depending on settings & as long as the machine has a SmartStep or DenStep control with a VR Eprom
fitted(2.0 Beta or 2.1)

Before that we used Dos software & a Dos eprom.

Re: Denford Easiturn PNC3 - Motor Drive Fault X Axis

Have you powered up the drive?

As I remeber it you need to release the E-Stop button & then power up the drives before you are able to home them.

Re: Novamill, first time in cnc (Mach conversion)

You can also fit a link between connector 1 & 3 which will supply 10volts & run at top speed permanently.

Re: Lost zero parameters on Fanuc OT-B

If you press & hold the axis limit override switch in you should be able jog the axis away from the limit switch.

It may have been too close or past the datum switch when you homed it so you could try again with the axis away from the switch.

Re: Novamill, first time in cnc (Mach conversion)

The spindle speed is controlled by an analogue voltage on connectors 2 & 3. It's 0 - 10volts depending on requested speed & should come from the control card.

Re: Lost zero parameters on Fanuc OT-B

I can only find the original Fanuc Data Sheet & the electrical record sheet for this one. You will need to input the 900 parameters then the standard parameters as in the link below, http://www.denfordata.com/bb/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=2977 You will also need to set up the 450 diagnostics to suit the m...

Re: Novamill, first time in cnc (Mach conversion)

Is the Sprint 400 powered up. (The red power LED should be illuminated).

Is the run contact on 4 & 5 closed.

Have you got a analogue signal to contacts 2 & 3. (2 = 0voltsDC - 3 = 0 to +10 volts DC depending on requested speed.

Re: Signal noise / jitter on all axis.

Looking at the clip the NextMove control is not powering up.

It may be worth unplugging all the connections apart from the power on the bottom right & seeing if something is pulling the control out. If the seven segment LED then turns on plug them back in one by one to locate the fault.

Re: M10, M11 chuck commands causing cycle stop

Hi Chris

Not sure on this then.

May be worth checking oil leve & air pressure just to be 100%.

Re: M10, M11 chuck commands causing cycle stop

You could try setting Diagnostic 453 bit 0 to a 1. (diagnostic setup marker).

It will reset counters & timers.

Re: machining a large model

You can stop the program at any point & then use specify a start block using the icon on the bottom left.

The icon has a picture of a magnifying glass in it & the line you stopped at should be present.
