    Re: 4th axis feedrates

    Hi Mark,

    Say running the GCode with your TP settings I'm getting different times.

    With Facet Angle 0.5 degrees - 66 Seconds
    With Facet Angle 5.0 degrees - 42 Seconds

    I can understand my 0.5...

    Re: Hurco BMC20 Dynomotion Retrofit

    Hi Troy,

    If it is an inductive proximity sensor I think it should be basically a coil of wires with no moving parts and never wear out.

    Re: 4th axis feedrates

    Hi Mark,

    Also what Version of KMotion are you using in case we are able to come up with a patch to try?

    Re: 4th axis feedrates

    Hi Mark,

    We're looking into using the Collinear tolerance to combine/filter/smooth out the microscopic Z motions. If they were in X and Z like this:

    Hi Adrian,

    Sorry, but I don't think there is an easy way to predict the accuracy of such a system without an extensive analysis that takes into consideration all the mechanical dynamics, masses,...

    Re: Setting Zero and divide by 2

    Hi Stig,

    Here is a patch for V4.34. Copy to <>\KMotion\Release\ folder.

    The Set Dialog should then look like this:

    428450

    Please let us know if it works for you. Changed sources are...

    Re: Setting Zero and divide by 2

    Hi Stigoe,

    You could configure a User Button to do this. See the CenterFindByHalfKMotionCNCDROX.c example.


    #include "KMotionDef.h"

    #define TMP 10 // which spare persist to use to transfer...
  8. Re: Intro questions - Windows/Kflop/Kanalog and a 17k pound milling machine conversio

    Hi Dancy,

    No, only one Kanalog can be connected. However besides Kanalog IO up to 4 additional Konnects can be added for an additional 192 IO (128 inputs and 64 outputs). Note for timing and...
  9. Re: Intro questions - Windows/Kflop/Kanalog and a 17k pound milling machine conversio

    Hi Dancy,

    Not exactly sure what you mean. But Kanalog connects to KFLOP and converts KFLOP's 3.3V UART signals to proper RS232 levels. So since your system will likely have a Kanalog you can...
  10. Re: Intro questions - Windows/Kflop/Kanalog and a 17k pound milling machine conversio

    Hi Dancy,

    You would want the RS232 to RS485 adapter.

    There is a PC program called modpoll that we often recommend using first to verify functionality from the PC and to verify which modbus...
  11. Re: Intro questions - Windows/Kflop/Kanalog and a 17k pound milling machine conversio

    Hi Dancy,

    You would need to research the protocol. Possibly ModBus? If so, it would most likely be doable. Kanalog has an RS232 port. You would need to obtain an RS232 to RS485 converter.

    Re: Tree325 Retrofit Started

    Hi mmurray70,



    You should be able to do:

    MDI("G40"); // tool comp off

    if KflopToKMotionCNCFunctions.c is included. GCode must be halted beforehand.

    Re: Tree325 Retrofit Started

    Hi Peter,

    I'm not sure restarting the code should necessarily always turn off the Spindle.

    End of Program and Restart (M30) will turn off the Spindle.

    Another option might be to have Halt...
  14. Re: Intro questions - Windows/Kflop/Kanalog and a 17k pound milling machine conversio

    Hi Dancy,

    Step-by-step guides are difficult as each system is different. You are expected to understand the overall process: Interface to your hardware, configure the axes, tune your servos,...
  15. Re: Intro questions - Windows/Kflop/Kanalog and a 17k pound milling machine conversio

    The Galil DMC-4080 is a great product similar to KFLOP with lots of built in IO, but I take exception to it being "higher performance" than KFLOP.

    KFLOP's servo update rate is > 2X faster (90us vs...
  16. Re: Recovering from powering off KFLOP in middle of Gcode file

    Hi Greg,

    It isn't clear to me how removing the zero's helped as if KFLOP lost power and re-booted it would default to zero anyway. Note that in the future you should be able to power down the...
  17. Re: Intro questions - Windows/Kflop/Kanalog and a 17k pound milling machine conversio

    btw that video lead me to this video where KMotionCNC is used to make a cool part on a different mill for their very cool "Joker" motorcycle. I wish I spoke Russian. Its at the 20min mark.

  18. Re: Intro questions - Windows/Kflop/Kanalog and a 17k pound milling machine conversio

    Hi Dancy,

    You might try this simple test. To have +/-10V Analog and differential encoder inputs you would add our Kanalog Option.



    I'm not sure what "glass greys encoders" are. Are they...
  19. Re: Recovering from powering off KFLOP in middle of Gcode file

    Hi,

    Since power was shut off to KFLOP the encoder positions in KFLOP have been lost. And since with power off the axes may have drifted then the actual physical positions may not be the last...
  20. Re: Intro questions - Windows/Kflop/Kanalog and a 17k pound milling machine conversio

    Hi Keshka,



    Real-time operations are handled by our KFLOP Controller so Windows doesn't need to be real-time responsive. I'm not aware of Windows background functions ever being an issue.

  23. Re: PID Servo Tuning with SnapAmp Chicken and Egg Variables

    Hi Jason,

    It isn't that critical. The Stimulus is white noise that is passed through a low pass filter. White noise basically contains all frequencies and will have a lot of energy at very high...
  24. Re: PID Servo Tuning with SnapAmp Chicken and Egg Variables

    Hi Jason,

    75hz and 35 deg sounds good. But unfortunately Bode plots only tell the truth if the system is linear. Linear means that if you inject signal A into the system and get some output and...
  25. Re: PID Servo Tuning with SnapAmp Chicken and Egg Variables

    Hi MadTooler,

    Seems pretty accurate for a large router. You might put a dial indicator clamped to the table and measuring to the spindle. Then apply like 1 lb of force to the Spindle and...
