  1. Replacing a Bridgeport Boss 8 EMC3 board with the right one.

    Has anyone replaced a Bridgeport Boss 8 Emc3 card?
    Most have caution labels.
    Opperator Control- xxxxxx
    Front pannel- xxxxxx

    Do the numbers have to match exactly?

  5. Re: AC Servo Amplifier guess the control mode puzzle challenge.

    Nobody wants to venture a guess? This is like solving a murder on a TV crime show or putting a puzzle piece in the puzzle. The fun is in the challenge.
    I certainly need more guessers.

    My semi-fun project is to get one of those cheap Sanyo AC Servo amplifier working that you can't get control pin information on being a custom model. The issue is the schematic shows a 50 pin...

    What do you mean by "performance or other features"? Compare the two systems assuming you buy 1000ppr encoders ($75.00/axis) for both systems.

    Yes EMC2 outputs step and direction.
    It might actually be fine after a fault. I will be testing mine shortly.

    I would think since the encoder is tied to the drive the encoder signal can't be...

    No reset after fault?

    Will the Pico Gecko Interface card let you fault a step/direction servo drive in EMC2 and still keep the Zero positions? It looks like you could stall out a drive and still get back to the Zero...

    From what I could find out the problem is that EMC2 needs the encoder feedback to go to the controller. With the Viper 200's it goes to the drive. The Pico card splits the encoder signals so they can...

    Viper200 in EMC2

    I want to use my Viper 200 drives with EMC2. From what I can find it won't work because EMC2 uses PWM and not step/direction for servos.

    Gecko's have the same problem however there is a Pico...

    If anyone is still interested the Bridgeport Boss 8 & 9 (R2E3, R2E4) use 250 ppr encoders which gives you position accuracy of .0005 per step. Taken from the manual.
