[02:01:49] <owhite> hey people I am trying to run a pico systems universal stepper card with the default .ini files, and I'm getting "waiting for s.axes"
[02:02:47] <owhite> http://pastebin.ca/2207414 dmesg
[02:02:49] <owhite> http://pastebin.ca/2207415 linuxcnc_debug.txt
[02:02:51] <owhite> http://pastebin.ca/2207416 linuxcnc_print.txt
[02:03:00] <owhite> relevant debugging files.
[02:03:06] <owhite> any suggestions?
[02:06:42] <jdh> did you try the diagnostic program?
[02:06:59] <owhite> which'n?
[02:07:09] <jdh> http://pico-systems.com/univstep.html
[02:07:18] <owhite> oh. yes. That's working.
[02:07:38] <jdh> right port address ?
[02:08:36] <owhite> yeah so that was something that I found confusing because there isnt one listed in the default. My parport is at 0x0378
[02:13:59] <owhite> users can specify the parport address with the line: "loadrt hal_ppmc port_addr="0x0378""
[02:14:16] <owhite> which seems to work, and if I change the address it then complains.
[02:14:41] <jdh> might try cranking up the debug level?
[02:14:57] <owhite> with dmesg?
[02:15:15] <jdh> in the .ini, change the debug line
[02:15:31] <jdh> (I know nothing of pico )
[02:15:40] <owhite> okay.
[02:16:45] <jdh> is this a livecd version?
[02:16:59] <owhite> I installed from livecd, yes.
[02:17:39] <owhite> ubuntu 10.04.
[02:18:25] <jdh> only thing I saw was teh fault in dmesg
[02:18:50] <owhite> yeah wasnt really helpful.
[02:19:23] <r00t4rd3d> I brushed off the top of this box i made with an apparently dusty brush. Good thing its dry :/
[02:19:24] <r00t4rd3d> http://i.imgur.com/5S7Ii.jpg
[02:19:36] <jdh> might try posting to the forum and see if the pico guy can help.
[02:19:56] <owhite> okay.
[02:20:03] <jdh> nice, did you do that with aspire?
[02:20:09] <r00t4rd3d> yeah
[02:20:18] <jdh> how long for the top?
[02:20:28] <r00t4rd3d> my flash makes the dust stand out mega lol
[02:20:46] <r00t4rd3d> hour and a half roughly

[02:21:36] <r00t4rd3d> nah, just gets fuzzy
[02:21:49] <r00t4rd3d> not the stuff to use for doing that type of shit
[02:21:52] <tjb1> Did you make the aluminum supports yet? :)
[02:21:55] <r00t4rd3d> no.
[02:22:09] <r00t4rd3d> that box was just a test run though, next will be in oak
[02:22:18] <r00t4rd3d> which carves alot better
[02:22:21] <tjb1> burl wood
[02:22:22] <jdh> what kind of bit?

[13:19:56] <jthornton> how do you calculate the frequency of the charge-pump component
[13:27:38] <skunkworks> I would guess 1/2 period?
[13:27:45] * skunkworks likes guessing
[13:30:17] <archivist> depends!
[13:32:03] <JT-Shop> that was my guess kinda sorta, but I'd like to put the forumla in the manual...
[13:40:26] <archivist> it depends on the device you are connecting to
[13:40:42] <JT-Shop> how does it depend?
[13:42:10] <archivist> you are pulsing a filter if it is often enough the voltage will be above a threshold, what is the filters requirements (it is external)
[13:43:44] <JT-Shop> what I'm looking for is how do you calculate the output frequency of the charge-pump component based on the base period lenght
[13:43:44] <archivist> so depends on the R and C or you may have a minimum frequency given by the devices manual
[13:46:01] <skunkworks> yep http://git.linuxcnc.org/gitweb?p=linuxcnc.git;a=blob;f=src/hal/components/charge_pump.comp;h=3a612d1ae2a0a6313b24a8ab6f7df0947adc55c5;hb=HEAD
[13:46:06] <skunkworks> 1/2 period
[13:46:21] <skunkworks> out = !out;
[13:49:01] <archivist> point user at http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?About_Charge_Pumps for special frequencies etc
[13:49:01] * skunkworks watches JT-Shop and archivist talk past each other.
[13:49:09] <skunkworks> ;)
[13:49:46] <archivist> that page also tells one how to get one based on some other period
[13:50:21] * JT-Shop knows very little about how charge pumps work
[13:50:25] <archivist> more than one way of calculating needs
[13:50:41] <archivist> that wiki page seems to have enough info
[13:51:00] <JT-Shop> don't most drive give a min freq that the charge pump needs to turn on?
[13:51:07] <JT-Shop> yes it does

[13:52:09] <JT-Shop> but I did find my answer on that wiki page
[13:52:54] <archivist> I do wonder at the islands of information without links to each other
[13:53:27] <skunkworks> heh
[13:53:39] <archivist> like this page http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/hal/components.html
[13:54:25] <JT-Shop> that was an attempt to expose the 'hidden' man pages for components for the PDF readers
[13:54:35] <JT-Shop> and needs mucho work
[13:55:08] <archivist> I keep landing there and it is a dead end at the moment :)
[13:55:21] <skunkworks> cool - the wiki has a few example circuits..
[13:56:58] <archivist> I do wonder if manuals like say the php one where the page itself gets comment which can then be folded into the main doc (php has been slow at actually doing that though)

[14:46:33] <skunkworks> pcw_home, (reading back) so you don't see a problem using the velocity estimate from the mesa encoder for a tach replacement back velocity mode amps?
[14:46:49] <skunkworks> *back to
[14:49:18] <pcw_home> No as long as theres enough phase margin, so for standard DC drive machine tool type of things its probably OK, though you may need to bump up the servo thread rate to a couple KHz

[14:50:26] <pcw_home> (so no Atom MBs if thats needed)
[14:53:42] <skunkworks> atoms can't go much above 1khz?
[14:53:56] <pcw_home> Nope
[14:55:05] <pcw_home> Not without real time warnings (which match my measure jitter of ~75uSec or so in the servo thread)
[14:55:16] <pcw_home> measured
[14:56:04] <pcw_home> My other test machine (an ancient Opteron) is OK with 6KHz
[14:56:29] <skunkworks> pcw_home, it is in reference to http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/threads/55882-CnC-programs-Turbo-Mach3/page10?highlight=linuxcnc
[14:56:37] <skunkworks> (about half way down and on_

[15:00:16] <skunkworks> pcw_home, the newer asus motherboards that I tested.. I ran the livecd for a few days - the latency didn't go above 39k...
[15:00:53] <pcw_home> I suspect that theres something in the Atoms the blocks access to hardware (Video DMA maybe?) so a latency test that doesnt access hardware misses this
[15:03:04] <pcw_home> The thread numbers are available from HAL so a HAL comp that reported the max jitter would be nice
[15:03:25] <pcw_home> available to HAL I should say
[15:04:08] <FinboySlick> pcw_home: Are atoms ill affected when it comes to just stepgen too, or is that not demanding on the CPU at all? (sorry for not knowing much of what I'm talking about ;)
[15:06:43] <pcw_home> I'm not sure. The atoms base thread jitter look really good but I have not tested it.
[15:06:44] <pcw_home> I was just poking around with the servo thread to see why you cannot run faster than
[15:06:46] <pcw_home> about 1 KHz despite really good number in the latency test
[15:07:18] <FinboySlick> I'm just about to place an order for a 5I25 if you have some LP in stock.
[15:07:45] <pcw_home> (and the fact that MBs with much worse results in the latency test perform better)
[15:08:07] <pcw_home> I think they have both available

[15:14:17] <FinboySlick> pcw_home: And from our earlier talk, defining which pin does what is a matter of programming a custom firmware?

[15:15:48] -!- bengan has quit [Excess Flood]
[15:15:54] <FinboySlick> OK.
[15:17:59] <pcw_home> Theres a single file in the source that determines what modules are included (stepgen, PWMgen, encoder etc) and which pins these modules connect to

[17:42:02] <mrsun> and i who didnt think that american stupidity could go any further then fractionals or wahtever its called :/
[17:42:04] <Jymmm> jdh++
[17:42:08] <JT-Shop> I use 11ga, 12ga, and 14ga all the time
[17:42:15] <tjb1> We very rarely use fractionals :P
[17:42:23] <tjb1> I deal in deicmel 99% of the time
[17:42:28] <jdh> I like 12gauge and 20gauge, the others seem pointless.
[17:42:41] <mrsun> and farneheit ... now america has sunk to a far far down new low :/
[17:42:47] <JT-Shop> 12 gauge is better, more knock down power
[17:42:48] <tjb1> $189 for a 6x10' sheet of 11 gauge steel, sounds good
[17:43:07] <tjb1> then I have to pay some guy $50 to bend it...
[17:43:19] <jdh> mrsun: is a human friendly measurement
[17:43:42] <mrsun> jdh, how ? when you got different thicknesses for the same guage number for different materials ...
[17:43:50] <mrsun> tell me exactly HOW that is human friendly :P
[17:44:01] * JT-Shop goes back to work
[17:44:02] <jdh> mrsun: I meant F. 0 is cold, 100 is hot.
[17:44:07] <Jymmm> mrsun: I think jdh meant F
[17:44:08] <tjb1> thats why you use deicmal and piss on gauge
[17:44:11] <mrsun> jdh, ahh =)
[17:44:16] <mrsun> no its not human friendly

[17:45:04] <tjb1> because you dont know F :)
[17:45:14] <mrsun> 212F ... well thats very ... well dragged out of the ass
[17:45:21] <jdh> 0 isn't very cold, and 100 is too hot to be useful (for humans)
[17:45:21] <mrsun> pulled
[17:45:55] <tjb1> How did it feel being pulled out of your ass? :D
[17:45:57] <mrsun> and as its not even a linear scale
[17:46:06] <mrsun> so how the heck can it be human friendly in any way
[17:46:32] <tjb1> 0-100c = 32-212f, you guys like decimals?

[20:36:10] <tjb1> Thats not mine FinboySlick
[20:36:26] <tom3p> io thought of adding a one shot but cant suss what relation it would have to the thread timing
[20:36:43] <tom3p> andypugh, ^^^ (thx
[20:37:00] <andypugh> If you addf-ed one at the begining, and one at the end you might get something.

[20:38:43] <tom3p> i forgot/dis-remembered that addf had that possibility

[20:40:58] <andypugh> pcw_home: But you can't call the same function twice in the same thread.
[20:41:54] <andypugh> (I just tried :-)
[20:41:57] <pcw_home> You only need one call (unless I mis-understand)

[20:42:25] <andypugh> The idea was to get a square wave high at thread start, then low when it finishes. I think
[20:43:01] <tom3p> i dont have to have a sqr wave, i could edge detect, & just wire input to output ( i think thats pcw's idea)
[20:44:59] <tom3p> i was creating new velocities for a process (sensors not inside emc but moved by hal )
[20:45:20] <tom3p> and didnt want to spit out a new velocity mid-servo period or spit out many per period or... none for a few periods
[20:45:41] <pcw_home> If you are trying to get a output synced to the beginning of the thread its a bit awkward
[20:45:50] <DJ9DJ> gn8
[20:46:18] <pcw_home> (as the write part of I/O is done last)
[20:46:49] -!- DJ9DJ has quit [Quit: bye]
[20:47:01] <pcw_home> a comp that writes directly to a parallel port would work however
[20:47:47] <tom3p> hows that different?
[20:48:16] <pcw_home> normal LinuxCNC thread order is read inputs do calcs write outputs
[20:48:30] <tom3p> yep
[20:49:17] <andypugh> Yeah, a simple comp with two functions, one to set the p-port high, and one to set it low.
[20:49:40] <pcw_home> as long as you are ok with that any I/O bit will be OK but if you want it done at
[20:49:41] <pcw_home> the beginning of the thread its more trouble
[20:50:22] <andypugh> Surely you just have to add that function first in the thread.
[20:50:42] <andypugh> There is no hard-coded requirement that writes come last.
[20:51:12] <andypugh> (Though you do get all sorts of comms faults if you addf hm2_write before hm2_read. DAMHIK)

[22:07:02] <tjb1> Actually r00t4rd3d im guessings its 69mm

[22:08:10] <r00t4rd3d> lots of info on it
[22:08:51] <PCW> Those drives have that funny "GND to disable" input so easiest is probably to do what
[22:08:52] <PCW> JT did and add relay with a NC contact than grounds all disables until a output bit (one of the 7I77s outputs)
[22:08:54] <PCW> is turned on by Linuxcnc
[22:09:13] <r00t4rd3d> tjb1, someone in that thread said it was 69mm also
[22:09:27] <sliptonic> PCW: Confirm 7i77 TB3? Encoder?
[22:09:43] <PCW> TB5 sorry
[22:10:11] <tjb1> My caliper isnt deep enough so I am not positive
[22:12:06] <tjb1> r00t4rd3d: What do you think, 1/2 or 3/4" thick clamps?
[22:12:10] <tjb1> Im planning on 2 of them
[22:12:26] <tjb1> Or maybe one like 4 inches long, that would be sexy
[22:13:02] <PCW> The other possibility with enable (drive pin 8) is to put a fairly stiff pulldown to ground (say 1K) and then use one of the enable OPTOs to pull it up to +15V
[22:13:27] <PCW> drive pin 8
[22:13:38] <sliptonic> PCW: Original wiring has J1-pin4 connected to the tach. J2-pin1 was connected to control.

[22:18:47] <sliptonic> I'm assuming differential input is preferable to single-ended input.
[22:20:14] <PCW> OK then it was jumpered for differential input so TB5.3 goes to J2 pin 2 and J1 pin4, TB5.4 goes to J2 pin1
[22:22:11] <Jymmm> r00t4rd3d: Here's a tip when V-Carving... to clean up the lil "nips" that remain after carving, use a green scotchbright to knock them down/off. Doesn't damage the wood either (as long as you're not too hard on it)
[22:22:29] <tjb1> r00t4rd3d: I was thinking of this.

[22:22:40] <Jymmm> r00t4rd3d: MUCH faster and easier than sanding or rotary tool
[22:23:36] <tjb1> What happens when you sandblast wood?
[22:23:45] <sliptonic> O.k. Thanks. JT-Shop: Any more details on your relay/disable solution?
[22:24:00] <PCW> So if 1K or so will disable drive that might be simpler than a relay

[22:30:02] <uw> scale then?
[22:30:13] <PCW> so 1K (maybe lower) between J1 8 and 9 to disable and 7I77 ENA+ to J1 pin 10 and 7I77 ENA- to J1 pin 8
[22:30:14] <PCW> (make sure that D3 is not jumpered so J1.8 is an enable input only)

[22:36:46] <roycroft> hi folks
[22:37:08] <roycroft> some time ago someone here recommended an intel atom d525 system board as working well with linuxcnc
[22:37:16] <roycroft> i purchased one, and, indeed, it does work quite well
[22:37:31] <roycroft> the board has been discontinued, however, and i wonder if anyone has a recommendation for a replacement
[22:37:48] <roycroft> this is what i originally purchased:
[22:37:51] <roycroft> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813121442
[22:38:11] <roycroft> newegg list it as oos, however other vendors show it as discontinued
[22:39:04] -!- ChanServ has quit [*.net *.split]
[22:39:45] <sliptonic> PCW: One more thing. Old wiring had limit switches wired into J1.6,7 Should I continue with that wiring in parallel to the 7i77 inputs?
[22:40:09] <andypugh> roycroft: I think PCW found one.
[22:40:35] <roycroft> one of the same board, or a suitable replacement?
[22:40:49] <andypugh> I am happy with the Intel DN2800, though it is PCIe and the graphics card has issues (OK at 1024x768 on the VGA, but not much else)
[22:41:24] <roycroft> my current project is a pbx, not a cnc controller
[22:41:46] <roycroft> however, the digium fxo/fsx boards have similar interrupt sensitivity
[22:42:04] <roycroft> so i thought a board similar to what i got for the cnc controller would likely do well
[22:42:24] <roycroft> and that intel was cheap, which i also like
[22:42:58] <roycroft> the dn2800 is a bit more, but still relatively inexpensive
[22:43:08] <roycroft> i don't care about graphics at all
[22:43:20] <andypugh> It runs from a 12V jack, which saves buying a PSU
[22:43:26] <roycroft> the thing will boot linux, and i'll occasionally need to go type at the console
[22:43:54] <roycroft> that's pretty cool, although i may need +5v for the digium board
[22:44:28] <PCW> sliptonic because those are active low they may or may not work with the 7I77 inputs (which expect active high inputs)
[22:44:43] <andypugh> http://www.amazon.com/Intel-Dual-Core-Mini-ITX-Motherboard-BOXD525MW/dp/B0041RSC94
[22:45:12] <roycroft> hmm, i didn't see that vendor before
[22:45:14] -!- i_tarzan has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[22:45:25] <andypugh> roycroft: You can pull 5V off of motherboard headers, or the SATA connector.
[22:45:29] <roycroft> i tried ordering from another amazon vendor who took the order and then informed me that they could not fulfill it
[22:45:48] <PCW> so if you have 24V control power, 7I77 inputs would be wired like +24 --> NC limit switch --> 7I77 input
[22:46:10] <roycroft> yeah, i could find 5v if necessary
[22:48:02] <roycroft> perhaps the thing to do is purchase some of the d525 boards while they can still be found, and then hope not to have a need for any more for a while
[22:48:29] <PCW> Theres alao this one:
[22:48:31] <PCW> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128452
[22:48:57] <PCW> also
[22:49:23] <roycroft> thanks!
[22:49:28] <roycroft> that's more what i'm looking for
[22:49:34] <sliptonic> OK, cool. Thanks!
[22:51:08] <PCW> I think thats a pretty close clone of the Intel D525
