    Delta 1000 Jog speed settings

    I originally thought it was an rapid override problem but I don't think so anymore so starting a new thread

    On this mill, when the mode is set to TM0, the four jog settings (mode select 0) are
    0=slow,
    1=medium,
    2=fast and
    3=rapid
    and they work as you expect when moving the table around

    When we switch to TM1 (Rapid override), The override knob slows the travel down in any setting as it should but when set to full
    The 3 (rapid) moves slower than 2 (fast)
    0, 1 and 2 all seem to be the same as in TM0, but 3 is noticeable slower than 2

    I would believe these are in a parameter somewhere but I have no book (and when I dropped to DOS the computer just rebooted so that's a different problem I'll have to ask about

    Any help would be appreciated
    Thanks

    ...Yes, there is a Installation Manual you would need to figure out which Parameters to check. They cost about $210usd (ouch) from Dynapath. Hopefully, a fellow cnczoner with a Delta 1000/2000 has a manual and chimes in. Or just live with the rapid feedrate minor problem.

    PS- to access the Parameters do this Turn OFF the machine and restart after a few minutes...than Type "PAR" than hit ENTER...screen should change to Parameters. Would be a good time to backup with Transmit/Receive soft key too.

    Thanks
    When I was watching it boot I could see it go through the POST (memory check, press F10 to enter setup for the BIOS etc) and then it went into the machine boot so I'll have to try to catch it in between. Not much use if I can't find someone who know what parameter needs to be changed though. Hopefully someone will chime in

    ...you would need (I think) a PS2 or older AT type Keyboard plugged into motherboard to access the PC BIOS with F10. To access the Parameters or the PLC program storage just wait for the 1st Screen after completing boot up Photo 1.....than type "PAR" or "PLC" then hit ENTER.

    Should backup both the PLC Program and the MTB Parameters via RS232, HDD or Floppy...also somewhere other than the HDD in case it fails down the road.

    Re: Delta 1000 Jog speed settings

    Thanks, that's great, I was on that screen but pressed the drop to dos button and the machine just reboots. On his older machine I had to drop to dos and open text type files to get to some of the settings. I'll be going back later this week and I'll try what you've shown.
    (still don't know what parameter it'll need looked at but it's a start
    Thanks again

    Re: Delta 1000 Jog speed settings

    On the Delta 20/30/40/50M control, jog speeds in IPM are 1,10,100 and rapid. I have the parameter manual for the Delta 40/50/60 but I have no idea if it is the same / similar for the 1000/2000. Dynapath has been extremely helpful for me in the past, and the tech emailed me the parameter manual when I was troubleshooting rapid rates on my mill - I really didn't need/want 400 ipm so he sent me the manual and helped identify what parameters to check / change. I think that is one reason they are kinda expensive, is they really do provide unlimited lifetime support.
    For my mill, in X,Y,Z order parameter addresses are
    Max Rapid Rate 110,190,210
    Max Rapid Jog 113,193,213
    Rapid Jog prior to reference 116,196,216
    Of course my parameters are all metric (Tree?!)

    Maybe this will help. BUT BE SURE TO BACKUP your parameter settings before making changes. You mess that up and your problems get very big very fast!!!!!
