rayh: the first one specified in the io= is parport.0, the next is parport.1, etc
or whatever the parameter name is for hal_parport
Hey thanks guys.
did you have success?
I found the addresses for both ports.
In the morning I'll try to figure out if the problem is outboard in the estop circuit or if it is a bad parport board.
I can disconnect the estop signal in HAL, connect it to a temp sig, and use sets to change it.
so there are still some IO problems? was it recently working or is this a new setup?
This is a broken 2.04 bdi that was upgraded to 6.06 by MattS.
Unfortunately he was not able to test.
sounds like a bit of a challenge to do remotely
If it's easy anyone would do it.
haha that's true.
We can't afford to make emc2 to easy, we'd be out of work!
besides, I'd rather have powerful than easy.
There you go.
jmkasunich: is the motenc_pidtest.hal file what you used to 'tune' the mazak
I don't remember, I'd have to look at it
no, I didn't use that on the Mazak
it uses siggen to make a circle
it seems like a reasonable way to do tuning
IIRC, peteV may have created that file, to help out a friend of his who was doing a retrofit
I may have contributed to it a little as well
ok. It is a basic setup that looks like it could be used for my setup.
I still would not know what to change to tune ;)
setp pid.0.Pgain 0.01
setp pid.0.Igain 0
setp pid.0.Dgain 0
setp pid.0.bias 0
setp pid.0.FF0 0
setp pid.0.FF1 0
yes - I mean cause and effect
yeah, thats the trick
its very very hard to _explain_ tuning
Seems to be a closely guarded secret
no secret, just a skill that is best learned by doing
I think I got an ok feel for it by experimenting
I almost have the encoder mounted on the large servo.
right - I just need to jump in.
I still haven't tried out FF2
jmkasunich: a 1/4" set screw isn't enough to keep the sprocket on the servo shaft (it even had a flat spot)
we where disasembling a cincinati lathe and its hydrolic servos where only coupled with a keyway. No spit coupler or even setscrew. And that was profesionally designed
wow - sorry about the spelling.
AC_ERROR([modversions.h is missing. This is a known problem on
the BDI-TNG distro. Please re-run ./configure as root
to replace it. You will only have to do this once.])
NONE:0: /usr/bin/m4: ERROR: EOF in string
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
well that is not a very useful error
MODEXT=`$RTS --module-ext 2>/dev/null` || MODEXT=".o"
does this do what the author intended -- set MODEXT to .o if $RTS exits with an error?
huh, I guess it does
I'm surprised by that too
(I wouldn't trust it)
steves_logging1 is now known as steves_logging
jmkasunich: can you install the libgtk2.0-dev package on the bdi4 farm slot?
