Re: correct parameters?

It could be. Not sure if we have any documents either.

Does it say what model it is?

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).

Re: nova turn software issue

Re: New

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: xyz homing issue

Does the X axis move towards the Home switch or away from it when you ask it to home? Have a look at the machine parameters for the NovaMill below from an older machine. It should be similar.

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: 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.
