[19:57:35] <CIA-62> EMC: 03cmorley 07master * r26ddd2301c17 10/src/emc/usr_intf/pncconf/pncconf.py: Remove last bit of code for tlo_along_w - its defunct
[19:59:41] <cradek> chester88: tlo_along_w isn't quite defunct since we haven't merged tlo_all_axes yet
[19:59:54] <cradek> but it's a safe bet that it will be merged, IMO
[20:00:37] <chester88> Ok it's defunct in pncconf. The option is gone. ya micges asked me to remove it
[20:01:03] <chester88> happy holidays guys
[20:01:21] <cradek> cool
[20:01:50] <micges> chester88: I was thinking about tlo_all_axes branch to do this fix but it's ok
[20:02:12] <chester88> oh I see- I miss understood
[20:02:35] <micges> it's ok
[20:02:45] <micges> as to pncconf testing:
[20:02:52] <cradek> micges: do you feel like that branch is close to merging?
[20:03:26] <micges> 1. changing units on the first screen doesn't change suffixes on fields
[20:03:59] <chester88> yes . the next commits change that- actual adds another screen
[20:04:12] <micges> cradek: yes
[20:04:38] <micges> cradek: but I'll let you know , I want to do some test few days
[20:07:15] <micges> cradek: and I want you to do some test with random toolchanger
[20:07:54] <chester88> micges were you testing with actual hardware? servos ? steppers?
[20:08:27] <cradek> micges: anymore I worry more about nonrandom because I am not exercising it
[20:08:27] <micges> pncconf don't allow me to finish creator yet ;)
[20:08:41] <cradek> micges: but of course I am happy to help you test when you are ready
[20:10:03] <chester88> micges please explain
[20:10:36] <micges> cradek: ok
[20:11:28] <micges> chester88: I've grayed button on z table limit page
[20:13:00] <micges> chester88: wait for moment I'll do test again on new master
[20:13:06] <chester88> k
[20:20:26] <micges> chester88: basic machine info: spin box with base period have max of 199000 ns (strange)
[20:20:54] <micges> mesa cards count can be only one
[20:22:00] <chester88> I will add ability of more cards when everything else works
[20:22:18] <chester88> what max should base be?
[20:23:12] <micges> don't know max allowed but two cards are quite common
[20:23:37] <cradek> my vmc has two 5i20
[20:23:52] <cradek> it's pretty easy to need more than 3 plugs
[20:24:01] <micges> max spindle override spin have init val 200 but have max set to 190
[20:24:16] <chester88> yes I guess I was hoping evrybody guys the larger card now :)
[20:24:17] <micges> cradek: there is any max?
[20:24:39] <cradek> micges: motherboards only have so many pci slots
[20:24:53] <micges> I see
[20:25:18] <cradek> I bet very very few people have 3 cards
[20:25:28] <micges> chester88: the same with max feed override spin
[20:25:31] <cradek> above that I bet it diminishes even faster
[20:25:50] <chester88> biggest prob I have with adding more cards is I cannot test. I only have one
[20:27:27] <micges> chester88: I can test
[20:27:59] <chester88> you may be sorry you saif that :) lol
[20:28:51] <chester88> I don't follow the max spindle override problem . you mean it won't spin to 200?
[20:29:08] <micges> if you have done skeleton, I have electronic change on one machine to two mesa, I can give it try for debugging stage
[20:29:27] <micges> chester88: yes, init value is 200 but max is 190
[20:29:53] <chester88> I have not done any work for two cards. Actual haven't even though how I would do it.
[20:30:14] <micges> so you have to set max to 200 or set init val to 190
[20:30:29] <chester88> I'm trying it and it spins up to 200? oh are you using metric?
[20:30:53] <micges> yes etric
[20:30:57] <micges> metric
[20:32:38] <micges> chester88: did you locate all issues?
[20:33:27] <chester88> what are you referring to?
[20:33:40] <chester88> translations?
[20:34:26] <micges> I mean spin boxes issues I noticed
[20:34:38] <chester88> no
[20:35:01] <chester88> this is undr GUI configuration, general gui defaults?
[20:35:49] <micges> yes
[20:37:10] <chester88> you cannot set max override to 200 percent?
[20:37:26] <micges> yes in metric
[20:37:48] <chester88> strange I can.
[20:38:08] <micges> with spin box buttons?
[20:38:35] <chester88> yes
[20:39:25] <chester88> so you mean it starts at 200 but if you lower it you can not but it back to 200?
[20:39:35] <micges> exactly
[20:40:14] <chester88> ok you metric what else xyz machine? Axis display?
[20:40:20] <micges> so it is something with localisation
[20:40:49] <chester88> not sure how to fix that
[20:41:28] <micges> ok this is minor
[20:41:31] <micges> next
[20:41:37] <chester88> next :)
[20:42:42] <micges> still in metric on mesa io setup page there is wrong number of GPIO (I have 48 instead of 72)
[20:43:16] <micges> default of that page is 5i20 firmware svst8_4
[20:43:39] <micges> suffixes should be hz instead of htz
[20:43:54] <cradek> frequency?
[20:44:27] <chester88> no number should be 48. it is the number of gpio not pins
[20:44:38] <micges> and I cannot set any pwn stepgen or encoder values other than 0
[20:45:01] <chester88> hmmm I can
[20:45:02] <cradek> if frequency it is spelled Hz, not hz or htz
[20:45:10] <chester88> ok
[20:45:52] <chester88> as you change the number of components the GPIO number should go up and down
[20:45:55] <micges> and on PID pages I have many float errors due to ',' sign
[20:46:51] <chester88> ahh someone else complained of this. He was from Germany. I don't know how to fix it but I think he did.
[20:46:59] <chester88> I will look in my emails...
[20:51:54] <micges> chester88: so this is mainly why I can't end creator ;)
[20:52:57] <chester88> I would bet. It works pretty well for me. If I remember he changed something locally and the , . problem was fixed > I am still looking
[20:53:38] <micges> ok
[20:53:54] <micges> I can do some more checks when you find it out
[20:56:06] <chester88> k
[21:07:13] <chester88> micges: what language are you using?
[21:07:25] <micges> Polish
[21:08:59] <chester88> K I emailed the guy for more info. I can't find the email. He may have just found a way around the problem
[21:10:39] <micges> cool
[21:11:01] <micges> let me know about progress
[21:12:33] <chester88> Ok Thanks for feed back!
[21:12:52] <chester88> It helps alot!
[21:14:11] <micges> good work
[21:14:45] <chester88> Thank you. I'm trying!
[21:15:00] <chester88> I will think about the two mesa card deal
[21:15:19] <chester88> ttyl
[21:21:27] <micges> cradek: it could be cool if we add callbacks for hal pin changes
[21:21:41] <micges> if we had*
