    Re: Overcurrent and run away

    I'm bumping this, hoping to find out how this was resolved. I'm seriously considering a DMM upgrade to my Multicam MG.

    Re: Y axis servo drive for MultiCam MG204

    My MG has the same motors. They are 8 pole BLDC and completely unobtanium. I've spent months looking for them. I called Minarik without success.

    Mine has Hengstler encoders which are no longer...

    Re: KDM Keypad Membranes

    I wouldn't think twice about paying that for a new OEM quality overlay for my KDM10. Maybe I'm the only one, but I'll put that out there. For several years now I've been thinking about how I could...

    looking for KDM10

    Yes, that's right, I'm looking for a replacement KDM10, that clunky steel box which is velcroed to some older machines. My MG series router came with one of these, rather that the KDM20. It's a small...

    Re: need info on 210-MB

    I have been unable to find out what the process is for homing the ATC, so I'm considering ways this process could be reverse engineered.

    Do these controls create a log file that could be examined...

    My next move if I were in your situation would be to try it with windows 98. I just checked my local CL and there are win 98 install disks available for $10.

    Re: putting older Komo machine back in service

    I tried moving each axis in the minus direction until the hard overtravel alarm was tripped and then backing off about an 1/8", then checking the ZRN box in parameter 1815 and restarted.

    It was...

    Re: need info on 210-MB

    Thanks! I've also discovered that if I uncheck ZRN in parameter 1815 and restart that the machine reverts to hard limits. I'm able to jog anywhere then and reset ZRN.

    greenb_60097, what I was referring to by "both ports" is the host PC. Mine is an ancient Dell which has 2 ports, one of which works perfectly, and the other other one just slightly. It sees the...

    Re: need info on 210-MB

    Okay, I took my best guess on where zero points of the axes should be and the X and Y look okay so far, but I think I got the Z wrong. I'm trying to jog it to another place to try again, but I'm...

    Yeah, I was just jogging it around playing with that. The first few times I tripped the overtravel, I tried using the overtravel bypass button and it didn't seem to work, but I just discovered it...

    Re: putting older Komo machine back in service

    Resetting the position of the absolute encoders after the backup battery runs down is a pretty simple and straightforward process which is well documented. It's parameter 1815. I've found it and...

    Re: putting older Komo machine back in service

    No dice. I still have the ZRN alarms active. It seemed logical that you would run the homing routine to have it find the prox sensors, then set the zero point from there, but maybe I have to clear...

    Those sound like pretty conservative settings for your equipment. Are you short on vacuum?

    Similar screen on the PC, but with way fewer physical buttons.

    Re: putting older Komo machine back in service

    There's an item in the same list (mode) as MDI, jog, memory, MPG, etc. labeled "home". I can't get it to do anything. Is this what I'm looking for?

    Re: need info on 210-MB

    It turned out all I had to do was uncheck the "auto-rotate" box in the operator panel to make the manual drawbar release and magazine rotate buttons work. Duh!

    Next up is figuring out the "home"...

    Re: need info on 210-MB

    Okay, I found that the coils on the drawbar air solenoid valve connect to pins 10 and 36 on TB127, which is the lower of the two ribbon cables going into the controller. Does this tell me anything...

    Thanks, this was very helpful, I found the parameter, although I'm still trying to figure out exactly where "home" should be, so I haven't set it.

    Re: putting older Komo machine back in service

    It's parameter 1815. I just need to figure out where "home" is. The reason the encoders lost their zero reference is because the batteries ran down, so I'm replacing all of them.

    Also, as part of...

    putting older Komo machine back in service

    Hi, I recently bought a 1998 vintage Komo Innova CNC router at auction. I didn't get any manuals with it, just a couple of schematics.

    The first problem that needs to solved is restoring the...
