[00:02:17] <A2Sheds> so sorry wrong channel
[00:02:28] <Ekkeri> damn, I ordered pcb from itead today, of course they have new year now :)

[00:05:02] <A2Sheds> new year is later
[00:05:04] <mshaver> Hey thanks for this pcb info! I normally end up at about $150 at GP because I buy a whole panel.
[00:05:09] theorb is now known as theorbtwo
[00:06:18] <Ekkeri> http://ekke.kapsi.fi/temp/.hall_v01.jpg quick proto for hall sensor testing.. :)
[00:06:19] <mshaver> Sparkfun has a similar service, but sometimes the wait times are high before they can aggregate enough orders to do a run.
[00:15:45] <Tom_itx> mshaver GP is good for a decent size order
[00:16:14] <Tom_itx> i found itead cheaper for what i got but i think the wait time will be longer
[00:17:10] <Ekkeri> what you mean by GP?
[00:17:15] <Tom_itx> Gold Phoenix
[00:17:18] <mshaver> I compared using LadyAda's web based comparator and GP was always the cheapest, but these new services are cool for trying out ideas!
[00:17:19] <Ekkeri> ok
[00:17:29] <Tom_itx> yea
[00:17:30] <Tom_itx> h
[00:17:43] <Ekkeri> mshaver, yup, waiting time just sucks :/
[00:18:08] <Tom_itx> especially now with their New Year approaching
[00:18:41] <Tom_itx> thing about GP is their canadian office closes before that then you run into the new year thing at the factory
[00:19:03] <alex4nder-> what's the turnaround time on GP?
[00:19:06] <Tom_itx> and no matter who, HK post is a part of it too
[00:19:24] <Tom_itx> i think about 6 to 10 days for me
[00:19:29] <alex4nder-> that's pretty good
[00:19:31] <Tom_itx> closer to 10
[00:19:41] <Tom_itx> they ship FedEx here
[00:19:45] <alex4nder-> I've only ever used advanced circuits.. and they're fast/quality, but expensive.
[00:19:52] <alex4nder-> (relative to the chinese guys)
[00:19:54] <Tom_itx> yeah
[00:20:24] <Tom_itx> are they the ones in Colorado?
[00:20:28] <alex4nder-> yah
[00:27:00] <andypugh> Never seen this before: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cordwoodcircuit.agr.jpg
[00:29:13] <mshaver> I've worked with this type of circuitry before in old tape drives.
[00:30:12] <andypugh> Looks like a whole lot of no-fun to repair?
[00:33:28] <andypugh> This is interesting too, like a CNC and encapsulated version of wire-wrap. http://www.hitachi-chemical.com/products_pwb_05.htm

[00:41:49] <danimal_laptop> andypugh: did your motor work/
[00:41:52] <danimal_laptop> ?
[00:42:36] <mshaver> andypugh:This is the computer I worked on at my fist job in 1981: http://users.monash.edu.au/~ralphk/burroughs.html
[00:42:49] <andypugh> danimal_laptop: Yes, though there is now an unexpected delay due to me messing up my PCB design
[00:43:34] <danimal_laptop> andypugh: nice (about the motor)! how much torque? More or less than expected?
[00:44:00] <danimal_laptop> pcb is probably easier to make/redesign than the motor
[00:44:20] <andypugh> danimal_laptop: Enough torque for the job, I think.
[00:44:31] <danimal_laptop> cool
[00:44:55] <andypugh> I probably ought to consider embedding a thermistor though :-)
[00:45:11] <danimal_laptop> it gets hot?
[00:45:20] <andypugh> Yeah
[00:45:47] <andypugh> Possibly PWM frequency, I need to experiment.
[00:46:09] <danimal_laptop> ah. is it a servo?
[00:46:19] <danimal_laptop> i forgot
[00:47:21] <andypugh> It's just a motor now, it will be a servo when I add the encoder PCB..
[00:47:34] -!- mikegg [mikegg!~mt-operat@c-71-56-61-208.hsd1.ga.comcast.net] has joined #emc
[00:48:37] <danimal_laptop> ah
[00:49:21] <danimal_laptop> but you're using a servo drive to test the holding torque or something?
[00:49:48] <andypugh> 7i39 + HAL
[00:50:27] <andypugh> But I have tested it in-situ and it worked.
[00:50:33] <danimal_laptop> nice
[00:50:54] <danimal_laptop> how long before you can tell us what it's for?
[00:52:12] <andypugh> I don't know, I am running out of time, in a couple of weeks I go to FInland, then I get back from there, go to China, then I will be 6 weeks away from home with no internets. Looks like the job won't be done till the summer.
[00:53:06] <Ekkeri> wow, what you do here in Finland? :)
[00:53:45] <danimal_laptop> bummer
[00:53:54] <andypugh> I am testing cars
[00:54:04] <andypugh> I will be in Rovaniemi
[00:54:58] <Ekkeri> ok, it's ~120km from my place :)
[00:55:36] <danimal_laptop> new fords?
[00:55:39] <Ekkeri> almost in the neighbor with our distances :)

[00:56:13] <danimal_laptop> they need to come out with a small diesel car for the states
[00:56:57] <danimal_laptop> i test cars too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHyXBFMLbVY
[00:56:59] <Ekkeri> diesel is almost 2$/l here :)
[00:57:15] <Ekkeri> bensin is a little more
[00:57:24] <danimal_laptop> mine i the one without bumper lights
[00:57:29] <danimal_laptop> is*
[00:57:57] <Ekkeri> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzXVLbs41Ew&feature=share take notes
[00:58:09] <danimal_laptop> gas is about $3.50/gal here
[00:58:10] <Ekkeri> *make
[00:58:16] Jim_ is now known as Guest52864
[00:59:47] <Ekkeri> so about 0.93$/l, I'm surprised
[01:00:06] <andypugh> danimal_laptop: Aye, new Fords.
[01:00:57] <andypugh> and I can't help thinking that the mountain bike would be a lot better through there.
[01:01:42] <andypugh> (and my GasGas would be through in one bounce...)
[01:03:40] <andypugh> (And, yes, I know I am missing the point :-)
[01:03:44] <andypugh> Right, night all.

[01:09:47] <danimal_laptop> half the fun is making it through a techy section that a vehicle isnt supposed to do
[01:11:32] <FinboySlick> On the topic of fords, I regret not waiting for the new Fusion... It's beautiful.
[01:13:27] <FinboySlick> I won't be doing hillclimbs with mine though.
[01:14:30] <FinboySlick> danimal_laptop: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6I1oAPG0Ss <-- This your lathe?
[01:14:56] <danimal_laptop> FinboySlick: yes
[01:15:05] <FinboySlick> It's awesome.
[01:15:29] <danimal_laptop> thanks!
[01:15:52] <danimal_laptop> it's a little hardinge HNC, same as a few guys have on here
[01:16:23] <FinboySlick> The little gantry mill is interesting too.
[01:16:41] <danimal_laptop> just sold that one
[01:16:49] <danimal_laptop> never really used it
[01:17:01] <FinboySlick> Was it servo-driven?
[01:17:06] <danimal_laptop> used to be a part marking inkjet printer
[01:17:07] <danimal_laptop> yes
[01:17:38] <FinboySlick> It's pretty fast.
[01:17:45] <danimal_laptop> yea, 600ipm
[01:17:48] <danimal_laptop> not too bad
[01:17:59] -!- micges has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
[01:18:15] <Valen> that fusion thing is kinda odd, they go on about its efficency but something like a fiesta is more than double its efficency?
[01:18:16] <danimal_laptop> sold it to a buddy who is probably going to turn it into something cool
[01:18:16] <FinboySlick> If I push my mill to 600ipm, it'll go straight through the floor.
[01:18:33] <danimal_laptop> FinboySlick: hahha
[01:18:50] <toastyde1th> i always hate cutting thin, square sheet type stuff in lathes
[01:18:53] <danimal_laptop> yea, my big mills have never seen faster than 450ipm
[01:18:57] <toastyde1th> for some reason i always think i am going to saw my fingers off
[01:19:11] <danimal_laptop> toastyde1th: yea, thats why i usually close the door
[01:19:20] <danimal_laptop> never had a problem though
[01:19:33] <FinboySlick> Mine is relatively small, but it's way too heavy for those kinds of speeds, especially on steppers.
[01:19:49] <danimal_laptop> FinboySlick: what kind of mill?
[01:20:02] <danimal_laptop> my mill was capped at 100ipm with steppers
[01:20:28] <danimal_laptop> but its a 3+ton machine too.
[01:20:43] <FinboySlick> danimal_laptop: http://www.syilamerica.com/machine_x5speed.php
[01:20:45] <toastyde1th> even for a machine that is several tons you should be able to get a few hundred ipm out of it
[01:21:06] <danimal_laptop> with the servos i was able to hit 450ipm, but the drives heated up so i keep it around 300
[01:21:07] <toastyde1th> we had an old OKK that was from like the early 70s and it did 400 ipm
[01:21:11] <toastyde1th> ah
[01:21:13] <toastyde1th> that is reasonable
[01:21:22] <toastyde1th> the servos on this machine are mammoth
[01:21:33] <FinboySlick> I pumped it to 200ipm, but I'm not sure if I'm going to microstep more (and loose the torque needed) or make it faster.
[01:21:56] <danimal_laptop> FinboySlick: mine had 1300oz/in steppers, VERY slow
[01:22:00] <danimal_laptop> nema 43
[01:22:09] <danimal_laptop> from the early 80's
[01:22:25] <danimal_laptop> thats a nice looking machine. too rich for my blood though lol
[01:22:42] <FinboySlick> I'm nema 34, 490 oz-in
[01:23:02] <danimal_laptop> those are probably a tad faster
[01:24:03] <danimal_laptop> i got 640oz-in servos on it now
[01:24:07] <danimal_laptop> much faster
[01:24:14] <danimal_laptop> and those are too small
[01:24:16] <FinboySlick> danimal_laptop: Were you refering to my machine with that 'too rich for my blood' comment?
[01:25:00] <danimal_laptop> mine just wouldnt do it
[01:25:11] <danimal_laptop> FinboySlick: yes
[01:25:23] <FinboySlick> I was sort of under the impression that I got cheap chinese crap.
[01:25:42] <FinboySlick> Then again, it's my first real mill... compared to my little sherline, it's awesome.
[01:25:54] <danimal_laptop> well the price tag is a bit painful
[01:26:18] <danimal_laptop> i'm used to big machines with crap controlers sold for the price of scrap iron lol
[01:26:22] <FinboySlick> I got it from the canadian distributor, it was an okay deal.
[01:26:49] -!- ries has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[01:27:30] <danimal_laptop> nice
[01:27:58] <FinboySlick> They decided to stop selling shortly after I bought it though, it's kind of worrysome.
[01:29:35] <danimal_laptop> ehh if it works good, i wouldnt worry about it. most of the parts are probably bolt on stuff that you can get online
[01:29:52] <danimal_laptop> if something went wrong
[01:30:09] <FinboySlick> If it dies, I'll probably just convert it to servo... Though the Y and Z axis are going to be a pain to get to.
[01:30:43] <danimal_laptop> yea

[01:39:34] <Valen> where you chickened out ;->
[01:39:50] <FinboySlick> It's my only cutter long enough for that job, I didn't want to break it.
[01:39:57] <Valen> ;-P
[01:40:25] <danimal_laptop> haha
[01:40:40] <FinboySlick> But yeah... I edited out the parts of me sounding scared, lost and confused afterward.
[01:41:02] <Valen> you will break cutters
[01:41:12] <FinboySlick> Oh I broke one already.
[01:41:13] <Valen> get the data sheets for them
[01:41:17] <Valen> follow the guidelines
[01:41:30] <Valen> and don't be too conservative
[01:41:40] <Valen> if you take it too easy you wind up rubbing not cutting
[01:41:49] <FinboySlick> Guidelines assume that I have coolant and/or chip clearing. These cuts are aimed at giving me those features.
[01:42:53] <Valen> get a source for cheap cutters ;->
[01:43:37] <FinboySlick> Heh, I still have revenu to spend this year if I don't want it all to evaporate in taxes so I don't mind buying good cutters.

[05:27:54] <Ekkeri> automata, hi
[05:28:11] <Ekkeri> automata, what kind of vfd do you have? modbus working ok?
[05:28:39] <automata> I have a Fuji Frenic Mini and a control Techniques SKCD200220
[05:29:05] <automata> I have nearly finished writing the modbus driver for the FUJI
[05:29:43] <Ekkeri> just Fuji-commands, or did you have to do something else too?
[05:29:44] <automata> but I think I am favouring the Control techniques as it can take a frequency input
[05:29:55] <automata> just fuji commands...
[05:30:01] <Ekkeri> ok
[05:30:36] <Ekkeri> I have Hitachi, just wondering why there isn't modbus interface for it, seems to be quite popular
[05:30:37] <automata> the FUJI modbus implementation is stupid... they have this one semantic layer called code types
[05:31:07] <Ekkeri> not sure if SJ200 even has modbus thou..
[05:31:27] <Ekkeri> yes it has
[05:32:28] <Ekkeri> http://www.wallacecompany.com/machine_shop/EMC2/modbus/ almost there.. :)
[05:33:42] <Ekkeri> maybe I will ask if he ever finished that..
[05:37:30] -!- FinboySlick has quit [Quit: Miranda IM! Smaller, Faster, Easier. http://miranda-im.org]
[05:41:56] <automata> Just got of the phone with the Control techniques guy!!!
[05:42:22] <Ekkeri> :o
[05:42:34] <automata> He said that the CT drive can do frequency input and prvide frequency outpt
[05:42:51] <automata> So the whole modbus line can be cut out!!
[05:43:01] <Ekkeri> why would you need freq output?
[05:43:15] <automata> in any case I plan on finishing the modbus drivers for both the Fuji and CT
[05:43:49] <automata> to monitor the actual spindle speed... so I can show a pretty actual spindle speed widget!!!
[05:43:52] <Ekkeri> I will use pwm input but still use modbus for status reading etc.
[05:44:12] <automata> the Hitachi VFD has a PWM input?
[05:44:41] <Ekkeri> yup, and analog 0-10VDC too
[05:44:50] <Ekkeri> and 4-20mA current
[05:44:57] <Ekkeri> sadly that PWM needs to be 10V
[05:46:13] <clytle374> A circuit to convert to 10v is pretty easy
[05:46:29] <Ekkeri> show me one :)
[05:46:37] <automata> Even the CT drive needs 10 V frequency input
[05:47:05] <automata> I was planning to use a 4n35 opto-isolator to push it to 12V
[05:47:21] <automata> is there a better way?
[05:48:30] <clytle374> Not famialr with 4n35, but yeah sounds good.
[05:48:45] <automata> Clytle374: what would you use?
[05:49:34] <clytle374> Anything you're familiar with ;)
[05:49:45] <Ekkeri> automata, why 12V then?
[05:49:57] <automata> 10V is the threshold
[05:50:43] <automata> But 4N35 works only till 200 kHz (that has to be kept in mind.)...
[05:50:50] <Ekkeri> ok, that PWM input can take up to 24V in different mode, but it says "PWM need to be 10V"
[05:51:02] <Ekkeri> well, my max. freq. is 32kHz
[05:51:12] <Ekkeri> was thinking to use something like 30kHz
[05:51:20] <Ekkeri> should be enough for the servos too
[05:51:24] <automata> I am thinking goig 10 kHz
[05:52:06] <automata> converting the existing gs2_vfd to monitor CT or FUJI seems to be an easy task...
[05:52:43] <Ekkeri> ok, nice to know
[05:53:20] <Ekkeri> can those optos be used with differential pwm?
[05:53:52] <automata> I am not sure...
[05:54:05] <automata> maybe someone more knowledgable can advise
[05:56:31] <clytle374> If the outputs can handle the input requirements, I can't think of why not. But if you have the isolator next to the output board, I'm not thinking isn't needed
[06:01:10] <Ekkeri> not needed, but mese board outputs differential pwm

[11:22:27] <awallin> automata, mrsun: you probably want a spindle to run in velocity mode. you can have the encoder index pulse reset the encoder count, so you never have to count up to more than one rev. if you also want spindle positioning (C-axis) you need some HAL-magic to switch between velocity/position modes of control.
[11:23:27] <automata> I am trying to make the HAL-magic for the switching.
[11:23:47] <archivist> or we need an improvement to the wrapped mode
[11:23:54] <automata> My problem is complicated by the fact that I have a total of 4 spindle modes...
[11:24:31] <automata> I need to operate an ac servo as the C axis for synchronized motion as well as a spindle axis.
[11:25:01] <awallin> normal rigid-tapping should not need a servo-spindle (c-axis)
[11:25:02] <automata> Further I also have 2 other spindles (run from the same inverter but with different speeds)
[11:25:23] <automata> I am not doing rigid taping...
[11:32:14] <archivist> other spindles from the same inverter?
[11:32:26] <automata> Two spindles from one inverter
[11:32:48] <archivist> switched or at the same time
[11:32:51] <automata> I am hoping to use interlocked contactors to do that...
[11:32:58] <automata> Switched
[11:33:15] * alex_joni smells smoky problems

[11:35:50] <archivist> add an inverter then spindles can work at the same time
[11:36:51] <automata> awallin: I am not doing rigid taping.. The C axis is a spindle but I need very high accuracy synchronized moves.
[11:37:12] <automata> Also I donot want to rely on G33 for doing that.
[11:37:28] <automata> We are using an AC servo for the C Axis.
[11:37:42] <awallin> double-chuck lathe?
[11:38:03] <archivist> with live tooling
[11:38:04] <automata> archivist: This is a 3 station machine. So, two spindles can never operate simultaneously...
[11:38:59] <archivist> er, why not :)
[11:41:14] <automata> I am also writing the CAM for the machine... so I want the CAM writing part to be simple...
[11:42:02] <automata> I donot mind doing some juggling in HAL once if it saves the hassle of not worrying about G33 later..
[11:42:25] <automata> Again I could be wrong... but this is the path I have currently chosen...
[11:43:51] <automata> I have never worked with G33 before so, I am not sure about its accuracy.
[11:44:19] <automata> Also I am not sure of it's behaviour with multiple queued moves
[11:44:39] <automata> i.e. G2 followed by a G1 followed by a G3
[11:45:34] <automata> Further in the Cam I may have circular interpolation between the Y and the C axis...
[11:46:00] <automata> so that may be hard with G33 (That is my assumption)....
[11:46:36] <automata> which is why I choose the path of buckling down and writing the HAL-magic for servo spindle...
[11:46:46] <automata> I am still open to suggestions though...
[11:46:48] <awallin> g33 is similar to a g1 move I think. and g33.1 has the return-move also
[11:47:49] <awallin> g2/3 can only be done in the xy, xz, or yz, planes afaik.. that g2/3 can be synchronized to your c-axis or some other spindle/encoder you have

[11:51:27] <awallin> hm, I guess with the current emc2 you can't sync a g2/3 with a spindle encoder. you need to have a C-axis spindle.
[11:51:46] <automata> how? g1z1a720 is a linear interpolation...

[13:44:51] <Mjolinor> can someone tell me if the encoder rev count is based on time between rising edges, pulse width or what?
[13:46:47] <jdhNC> I would guess index pulse counts
[13:46:59] <Mjolinor> ok
[13:47:02] <Mjolinor> :)
[13:47:10] <Mjolinor> not sure a guess will cut it but I will assume so I htink
[13:47:13] <jdhNC> emphasis should be placed on the 'guess' part.
[13:47:38] <Mjolinor> my IR opto switch si too slow so I was going to put a pulse stretsher on it but taht will make the pulses fixed width
[13:47:53] <Mjolinor> if it is edge triggered that is OK but if it uses pulse length then it won't work
[13:48:03] <Mjolinor> and the answer does not seem to be availabel to my googling
[13:48:47] <Mjolinor> http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.distributions.emc.user/21629
[13:48:52] <Mjolinor> seems to suggest edge
[13:48:58] <archivist> what are you trying to do
[13:49:06] <Mjolinor> count revs :)
[13:49:52] <Mjolinor> trying to spend £1 on an opto switch instead of £10
[13:49:57] <Mjolinor> :) tight me
[13:50:03] <archivist> rpm or actual revolutions , just use one of the encoder types
[13:50:17] <Mjolinor> both
[13:50:24] <Mjolinor> but my opto switch is not fast enough
[13:50:40] <Mjolinor> it has a 30us rise time adn that is too slow for the slot width
[13:50:42] <awallin> for estimating velocity you probably want two modes: at low speed you measure the time between two edges. at high speed you count the number of edges in a fixed time.
[13:51:13] <Mjolinor> as long as it is edges it will be fine but if it counts time between rising and falling edges then what I am doing will not work
[13:51:40] <archivist> use a simple slot type opto
[13:51:45] <Mjolinor> i am doing
[13:51:53] <Mjolinor> but it si not fast enough to produce a pulse
[13:52:22] <Mjolinor> the opto takes about 40us minimum for a pulse, I need 10
[13:52:23] <archivist> I have a couple on the lathe (original fitment)
[13:53:02] <Mjolinor> so I will stick it through an op amp and make the pulse but I can only make it fixed width, I cant ge the opamp to trigger both way son the small change in opto output voltage that it makes at 2000 rpm
[13:53:18] <Mjolinor> the one that was original on my lathe is fast enough
[13:53:30] <Mjolinor> but it only had two so I needed to add third to get direction
[13:53:51] <Mjolinor> so I just made a enw board with 3 on and need to make it faster
[13:54:48] <archivist> direction! on a lathe... why bother
[13:55:11] <jdhNC> threading?
[13:55:20] <Mjolinor> good question
[13:55:37] <Mjolinor> one could also say why bother doign it in the first place :)
[13:56:46] <Mjolinor> because it is an interesting series of problems that are within my capabilities :)

[16:08:01] <bilboquet> sorry i've commented and not uncomented estop
[16:14:32] <bilboquet> I just got my cnc and I was not yet of experience with this kind of machine. it's a CNC3020 (cnc-shop) in the documentation they explain how to connect to mach3
[16:20:03] <cpresser> bilboquet: there is a kind of setup-wizard you can use
[16:20:08] <cpresser> its alled stepconf

[17:57:57] <IchGucksLive> someone has a boardlayout for eagle to detect the rotation of a spindle ?
[18:00:39] <Tom_itx> quadrature?
[18:01:21] <IchGucksLive> no i gone use a cny70
[18:02:55] <tom3p> ? like this ? http://www.jojos-homepage.de/ft/cny70/SchaltplanCNY70.jpg there is no direction
[18:04:25] <IchGucksLive> yes i gone use a lm358 for amplifiere

[18:26:41] <IchGucksLive> it works perfect quick setup with a LED and a handdrill
[18:28:08] <tom3p> it tells you velocity but can it tell you direction?
[18:28:28] <tom3p> thge led brightness is analog of velocity
[18:29:00] <IchGucksLive> why do i need direction
[18:29:12] <tom3p> someone has a boardlayout for eagle to detect the rotation of a spindle
[18:29:14] <IchGucksLive> Turns/min
[18:29:47] <tom3p> sorry it sounded like you asked for direction what are you asking? you already have velocity,
[18:30:20] <IchGucksLive> the speed in turns per nin i got a "stufenlos"
[18:30:42] <IchGucksLive> infinitely variable
[18:31:16] <IchGucksLive> ther is a pull lever on the side
[18:31:45] <IchGucksLive> i think i gone build this on the last link for myown
[18:31:52] <Tom_itx> if you read the rising and falling edge on both you can get direction
[18:31:53] <tom3p> i misunderstood, you have a signal that you can connect to hal? a clean sqr wave or is it analog dc?

[18:32:36] <tom3p> a sqr wave can be counted per minute, but an analog dc value would need an adc conversion

[18:32:54] <IchGucksLive> i go for 9V battery

[18:38:50] <Tom_itx> i'd be more inclined to use a schmitt trigger on the output
[18:40:10] <tom3p> and the eagle lib in iowa http://www.engineering.uiowa.edu/~eshop/Eagle/lbr/ look for cny70.lbr
[18:40:25] <tom3p> Tom_itx, yeh clean it up
[18:40:38] <IchGucksLive> lib inside board is open
[18:42:39] <Tom_itx> what's the focal length of the cny70?
[18:44:39] <Tom_itx> qrb1114 and or520-nd are a couple others
[18:44:59] <Tom_itx> qrd1114 as well
[18:46:26] <Tom_itx> iirc the omron one is pretty tiny
[18:46:27] <IchGucksLive> i testet with 5mm to the drill wheel with black rubber to get the falling edge
[18:47:43] <tom3p> the data sheets show the tests at 0.3mm http://www.vishay.com/docs/83751/cny70.pdf damn close
[18:48:03] <Tom_itx> yeah they all have a short focal length
[18:48:35] <Tom_itx> http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?lang=en&site=us&KeyWords=qrd1114
[18:49:10] <Tom_itx> 1.27mm on that one
[18:49:17] <IchGucksLive> tom3p: look at the curve below up to 8mm
[18:49:58] <tom3p> yeah, the curve shows the current falling off after 0.3mm and useless after 10
[18:50:21] <tom3p> it works but gets weak fast
[18:50:31] <IchGucksLive> i see
[18:50:58] <IchGucksLive> so i gone test this tomorrow at 1mm and 200rpm
[18:51:03] <IchGucksLive> 2000

[20:54:00] <JT-Shop> thanks
[20:54:06] <mhaberler> sure
[20:54:27] <JT-Shop> I was thinking it might catch my eye better if the background color was red when running in reverse
[20:54:48] <mhaberler> let me know if you find anything odd or unclear in the gladevcp manual
[20:55:02] <JT-Shop> I've been googling but don't come up with a simple solution to it
[20:55:09] <JT-Shop> Ok, will do
[20:55:12] <mhaberler> hm, let me see
[20:55:28] <JT-Shop> I'm trying to do everything by referencing the manual
[20:57:33] <mhaberler> the research part is always figuring which widget supports which methods, so I usually google for 'pygtk label set foreground' or so
[20:58:07] <JT-Shop> ah, I wasn't using pygtk in my search
[20:58:36] <mhaberler> hm, seems hard: http://faq.pygtk.org/index.py?file=faq07.005.htp&req=show
[20:58:52] <mhaberler> one option is to use several images
[20:59:03] <JT-Shop> yea, found my way to that page
[20:59:14] <mhaberler> fwd/green, fwd/red; rev/green;rev/red
[20:59:15] <JT-Shop> display an image instead of the text?
[20:59:27] <mhaberler> yes; kinda cludgy
[21:00:01] <mhaberler> let me see, maybe there's a way - you want level-dependent colors?
[21:00:24] <JT-Shop> yes FWD green REV red Off nothing

[21:29:57] <JT-Shop> mhaberler: cool, thanks
[21:31:05] <mhaberler> onlx X windows can be colored; gtklabel doesnt have an own X window; but wrapping it in an gtkeventbox gives it an x window which can be colored. I have no idea what eventbox does beyond that ;)
