[00:00:38] <heathmanc> would I use the same firmware for the 4i69?
[00:00:53] -!- voxadam [voxadam!voxadam@unaffiliated/voxadam] has joined #linuxcnc
[00:00:55] <heathmanc> i only see one 4i69 firmware in the package

[00:05:16] <heathmanc> or will that firmware work with 2x 7i29
[00:06:07] <PCW> No you need specific 4I69 firmware (he 4i69 has mainly been used by people using their own firmware)
[00:06:26] <heathmanc> sounds like i'm in for an adventure
[00:07:25] <PCW> not really its just theres not a whole lot of pre-built firmware available for the 4I69
[00:07:28] -!- rob_h has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[00:07:44] <heathmanc> to me, the 4i69 and a single board computer sound like the ultimate setup
[00:07:49] <heathmanc> rugged, compact
[00:07:56] <heathmanc> surprised there aren't a lot out there doing it
[00:08:28] <PCW> I think the 4I65 is more common for this (older/better supported by linuxcnc)
[00:08:46] <heathmanc> lol, maybe i should have ordered that
[00:08:55] <heathmanc> assuming it's too late now

[00:16:06] <PCW> freeby.mesanet.com/4i69_16_sv12.bit is a bitfile suitable for a 4i69-16 and 7I29s
[00:16:23] <PCW> its not a big deal to make bitfiles

[00:17:43] <heathmanc> awsome, I ordered the -25 though, would it be possible to get one for the 7i48 on the 4i69-25 also, can't order the 7i29 as it's not in stock
[00:21:45] <PCW> freeby.mesanet.com/4i69_16_sv12.bit
[00:22:04] <PCW> sorry freeby.mesanet.com/4i69_25_sv12.bit

[00:34:47] <Mr_Mayhem> hehe
[00:35:00] <Mr_Mayhem> But really, I do like mine.
[00:35:19] <heathmanc> any idea when the 7i29 might be in stock and the 7i42ta
[00:35:37] <PCW> I'll ask

[00:57:22] <NickParker|2> PCW: could using the wrong work.@card@,all be causeing my issues?
[00:57:27] NickParker|2 is now known as NickParker
[00:57:35] <NickParker> i'm on work.i25_x9card.all for a 6i25
[00:58:19] <NickParker> and i notice work.sixi25_x9card.all is an option
[01:01:03] -!- ravenlock has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[01:01:04] -!- terabyte- has quit [Quit: terabyte-]
[01:01:59] <NickParker> and my "issues" are that my compiled bit files keep the pc from booting unless i use a pencil to short the eeprom chip
[01:03:38] <Tom_itx> when i built mine i commented that out and used the specific card
[01:03:49] <Tom_itx> btw did you notice my how to on making bit files?
[01:03:51] -!- voxadam has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[01:04:15] <NickParker> Tom_itx: no i did not. last time i was in here you were starting it. link please?

[01:20:17] <NickParker> Tom_itx: so is the work.@CARD@.all field talking about what daughter card I'm using, or what anythingIO FPGA card I'm using?
[01:21:30] <PCW> the card selected is not likely to cause a problem
[01:21:32] <PCW> If you bit files are bad download the current source, build a _standard_ bitfile
[01:21:34] <PCW> using the fivei25.xise project file and modify (carefullY) from there
[01:21:50] -!- gmag has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
[01:22:44] <NickParker> I've just restarted from source. So if I'm wiring everything up through a breadboard, what should I put in @CARD@?
[01:23:34] <PCW> the card is for the FPGA card (independent of daughtercards)
[01:24:46] <Tom_itx> the @PIN@ is more for the daughter cards isn't it?
[01:25:11] <NickParker> Tom_itx: yes, that's what i thought.
[01:25:20] <PCW> Yes that determines the I/O pinout (and modules included)
[01:25:21] <Tom_itx> the @CARD@ sets up the parameters for the main card
[01:25:30] <NickParker> alright well I'm going to go with work.sixi25_x9card.all for the @card@ slot for now
[01:28:16] <PCW> either 5i25 or 6i25 card types will do
[01:30:19] -!- Tecan has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
[01:32:10] <NickParker> what's a good PIN file to start from for 6i25? My old one seems to have some issues so i'm starting that part fresh as well.
[01:33:10] <PCW> what issues?
[01:33:36] <NickParker> I've added it to the library but i still get the error "Cannot find <pin_new1> in library <work>. Please ensure that the library was compiled, and that a library and a use clause are present in the VHDL file."

[01:36:48] <Tom_itx> PCW do you try to synthesize the files for size when you can over speed?

[01:44:33] <somenewguy> can ngcgui always safely accept equations as input?
[01:45:27] <PCW> NickParker: make sure you use the fivei25 project file,
[01:45:28] <PCW> if not the bitfile generation options will make unusable bitfiles
[01:46:22] <Tom_itx> are there FPGA size options on it also like there is on the 7i43?
[01:46:44] <NickParker> PCW: I had been using hm2epp.xise. Switched now
[01:47:04] <Tom_itx> that's for parallel port
[01:47:08] <PCW> umm thats guaranteed to fail
[01:47:44] -!- jazzy has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
[01:48:13] <NickParker> Tom_itx: The page you posted just said to use it. Could you add that that's for parallel port?
[01:48:31] <Tom_itx> i used my setup as the example
[01:48:44] <Tom_itx> i thought i mentioned that
[01:49:19] <NickParker> oh yeah you did. you said "in this example i will be using the hostmot2 EPPHM2 firmware"
[01:49:41] <NickParker> sorry, didn't put two and two together over here that I might need a different project file.

[01:52:09] <PCW> you need

[01:52:14] <PCW> the right ucf file assosciated with the top vhdl file
[01:52:15] <PCW> otherwise you will get
[01:52:17] <PCW> bit hash/mish mash
[01:52:33] <Tom_itx> i'll add something to that effect
[01:52:34] <Tom_itx> to the page
[01:53:04] <Tom_itx> if i knew more about the specifics i would add to it
[01:53:17] <NickParker> alright I just compiled one without any errors. I've got some warnings though: http://pastebin.com/5XeaTjdA
[01:53:24] <NickParker> a lot of warnings I should say...

[01:54:27] <PCW> meaningless
[01:54:43] <NickParker> cool. Well time to grab a pencil, boot my pc and see if this one works
[01:54:55] <PCW> the ones I like are the case statement is complete warnings

[01:56:17] <Tom_itx> i didn't do anything there
[01:56:21] <Tom_itx> that i'm aware of
[01:57:03] <PCW> you just need to make sure the right one is assosciated (the card specific project files do that for you)

[02:00:14] <Tom_itx> PCW, do all the project files start with TopEPPHostMot2 as the top file where you select the board and daughter options?
[02:00:56] <Tom_itx> i suppose they wouldn't be EPP though
[02:01:05] <PCW> Top something
[02:01:16] <Tom_itx> so would it be fair to say TopXXXHostMot2 file?

[03:02:08] <CaptHindsight> "We Changed this Machine to Mach3 Controlled System" I wonder what it used to come with?

[03:03:52] <jdh> what solid looking routers?
[03:05:53] <toastydeath> I still want someone to scrape in an aluminum extrusion and use an air bearing
[03:06:02] <toastydeath> I think that's probably the cheapest and most accurate way to build anything hobby

[03:25:01] <NickParker> Hi all, back from dinner. PCW: I can't seem to recover my 6i25 yet. sudo ./mesaflash --device 6i25 --recover --write fallback.bit works, i can see sectors erase and get written and it says configuration updated successfully
[03:25:24] <PCW> did you cycle the PC power?
[03:25:28] <NickParker> but after that sudo ./mesaflash --scanpci doesn't see anything and --device 5i25 and --device 6i25 both say device not found
[03:25:35] <NickParker> yes, but it still needs the pencil to boot.
[03:25:50] <PCW> well then the bitfile is not right
[03:26:10] <NickParker> I can't imagine how i would have mucked up fallback.bit, but I'll grab a fresh one and try it
[03:27:45] <PCW> download the source/ select fivei25.xise project/build a standard bitfile (the supplied pins files) and try that
[03:28:14] <NickParker> ok will do after i reboot with my freshly downloaded fallback.bit
[03:28:54] <PCW> or better still just program with one of the supplied bit files

[03:41:23] <Tom_itx> i thought they ran on air bearings
[03:41:27] <eric_unterhausen> know your dimensions with .001" accuracy
[03:41:33] <toastydeath> they do, that's why we're incredulous
[03:41:47] <toastydeath> cuz that shit LOOKS like it's got some linear bearings slapped on a casting
[03:41:48] <Tom_itx> the one we had would just float
[03:42:12] <toastydeath> Air bearings are extraordinarily tolerant of surface variations
[03:42:30] <toastydeath> linear bearings, not so much
[03:43:46] <toastydeath> which means you can scrape an air bearing in and it has no problems whatsoever
[03:44:17] <toastydeath> vs being forced to grind and lap something
[03:44:40] <eric_unterhausen> I went to Ziess last fall
[03:45:08] <toastydeath> how was it?
[03:45:23] <eric_unterhausen> it was interesting, wish I could have learned more
[03:46:26] <eric_unterhausen> they didn't hide anything from us
[03:46:43] <toastydeath> damn
[03:47:03] <eric_unterhausen> main thing I learned was that you shouldn't buy a better machine than you need
[03:47:22] <Tom_itx> why not?

[03:56:28] <eric_unterhausen> reminds me, I gotta upgrade the computer on my zygo
[03:56:56] <eric_unterhausen> too bad I don't have 80k, the new machines are really nice
[03:57:01] <eric_unterhausen> same specs though

[03:58:39] -!- mozmck [mozmck!~moses@client-] has joined #linuxcnc
[03:58:47] <toastydeath> (speaking of scraping aluminum for air bearings on hobby machines)
[03:58:50] <eric_unterhausen> for a precision machine maker, any synchronous that is obvious with a measurement from a zygo is a problem
[03:58:57] <toastydeath> we took two air bearings and a big stainless pipe
[03:59:07] <toastydeath> just a relatively straight 3" pipe
[03:59:34] <toastydeath> stuck two air bushings on either end, and it turns out that if you pretend the pipe is a spindle
[03:59:43] <WalterN> woo
[03:59:53] <toastydeath> you wind up with a virtual straightedge you can use to guide a machine with
[03:59:54] <WalterN> tomorrow I get to go on a business field trip
[04:00:15] <WalterN> going to go look at a bunch of equipment
[04:00:30] <toastydeath> two gauges on either side and spin the pipe, and just use the A-B method of spindle measurement
[04:00:51] <toastydeath> straightedge accurate to your bearing's error
[04:01:07] <toastydeath> .00001" or better on just some old junk pipe
[04:01:15] <toastydeath> over 8 feet
[04:01:30] <eric_unterhausen> didn't that company get started selling moglice or something like it?
[04:01:37] <eric_unterhausen> Drew is a smart guy
[04:01:38] <toastydeath> New Way didn't
[04:01:53] <eric_unterhausen> I thought that's where "New Way" came from
[04:01:54] <toastydeath> drew started with in place machine reconditioning

[04:03:51] <toastydeath> he just has NO idea what he's doing a lot of the time, and the people around him DO, but don't help
[04:04:23] <WalterN> toastydeath: looking at employing a guy?
[04:04:26] <toastydeath> he's also willing to give it ago
[04:04:30] <toastydeath> * a go
[04:04:35] <toastydeath> and keep at it until it starts to work
[04:04:41] <toastydeath> WalterN, ?

[04:06:09] <WalterN> thats what I'm trying to figure out
[04:06:24] <eric_unterhausen> toasty and I both know the guy
[04:06:27] <toastydeath> the guy i'm talking about is not a machinist but has a lot of good ideas
[04:06:43] <eric_unterhausen> probably too many good ideas :)
[04:06:43] <toastydeath> ideas that have (in my opinion) obvious and immediate utility as products
[04:07:03] <WalterN> ideas are cheap, implementing them isnt
[04:07:06] <toastydeath> what he doesn't have is machining or engineering expertise
[04:07:31] <eric_unterhausen> I think he's getting better about that
[04:07:40] <toastydeath> and so he bangs his head against the wall on projects that would be done SO quickly otherwise
[04:07:50] <toastydeath> just because he can't get support from inside the company
[04:08:03] <WalterN> so why dosent he fix it?

[14:30:45] <R2E4_> RGSO is the drive enable. IT shows a contact, so you think all i need to do is provide a contact to enable the drive?
[14:31:18] <R2E4_> I need to find out what VTG, 15G IA and IVTG1 are....
[14:31:27] <archivist> you could do some tracing of wires with a meter
[14:32:03] <R2E4_> IT goes to the controller, I know where they go.
[14:32:12] <R2E4_> I just dont know what they do
[14:32:37] <archivist> do you have the controller docs
[14:33:26] <R2E4_> yes, it doesnt get down to that level though. I have all the wiring for the controller and machine also.
[14:33:41] <R2E4_> I am really close but before I rip anything apart I need to find out
[14:33:41] <archivist> things like the enables may be connected together
[14:34:18] <archivist> wire names can be a good clue on the wiring diagram
[14:35:48] <archivist> you can also run it and scope the signals
[14:36:07] <R2E4_> The wires that go from the drives to the controller are multi-pair wire.CN1, goes to a connector on the controller
[14:36:17] <R2E4_> yeah......
[14:37:21] <R2E4_> I am also worried about phase, there are in the controller screen etc that talks about AB phase and sections limited to that, which I do not know what that does.
[14:38:40] <archivist> encoder AB?

[14:47:58] <R2E4_> Tach goes into servo amp. What exactly does the amp use that data for?

[14:48:44] -!- kiw has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
[14:50:07] <R2E4_> So the control knows where it told the axis to go, the motor moved and the confirmation of the move gets sent to the controller via encoder.
[14:50:33] <R2E4_> If there is an error, what would linuxcnc do with the diff signal?
[14:51:43] <archivist> which diff
[14:51:58] -!- chillly has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[14:52:17] <R2E4_> the diff between what the controller told it to move and what it actually moved, (from encoder)
[14:53:23] <archivist> the loop in linuxcnc sees the error and moves the axis accordingly
[14:53:53] <R2E4_> Thats what I thought, but I have heard others speak differently about it.
[14:54:20] <R2E4_> IT knows where it is suppose to be, if its not, it sends it there.

[17:07:00] <CaptHindsight> you just have to keep feeding it balls by hand
[17:07:12] <mozmck> Might be hard to find prior art on that one though...
[17:07:40] <Gigs-> I'm sure there's even similar patents issued from back when it wasn't the uspto's policy not to grant perpetual motion patents
[17:08:05] <Gigs-> it's a pretty "classic" design ... probably first thought of in the 1500s or even earlier
[17:08:26] <Gigs-> at the latest, the renaissance
[17:08:30] <CaptHindsight> perpetual patent machine
[17:08:34] <mozmck> askpatents.com
[17:08:49] <mozmck> saw this the other day and it looks interesting.
[17:09:19] <Gigs-> yeah, it's been around a while, it's a good idea but apparently it's not completely working
[17:09:47] <mozmck> I don't know, I read about it here: http://joelonsoftware.com/
[17:10:09] <Gigs-> related there's also some open libraries of prior art
[17:10:28] <Gigs-> funded by the big guys that have thousands of patents ironically
[17:10:57] <Gigs-> there's some things IBM or ITT might not want to patent, but they want to get prior art documented to prevent anyone else from patenting

[17:12:03] <CaptHindsight> A giant silicon valley "fruit" co just filed for a patent for something we are building for them and have been building for years
[17:12:24] <CaptHindsight> lots of prior art
[17:12:26] <Gigs-> the major problem in my mind is that the USPTO seems to "default to issue"... but really I think very few patents should actually be issued
[17:13:09] <CaptHindsight> the definition of "obvious" has been made very specific for the USPTO
[17:13:13] <mozmck> From the site I just linked: "The number of actually novel, non-obvious inventions in the software industry that maybe, in some universe, deserve a government-granted monopoly is, perhaps, two."
[17:13:35] <Gigs-> even just watching Shark Tank on TV... you see startups holding ridiculous patents sometimes
[17:14:10] <Gigs-> Mark Cuban tore into someone who had a patent on channels in clothing to run earphone wires through, that was nice to see at least
[17:14:26] <CaptHindsight> heh
[17:14:32] <Gigs-> since that idea has been around for ages and at least two of the investors had been making similar products for years
[17:15:47] <CaptHindsight> plus there are tons of overlapping patents
[17:15:55] <Gigs-> in the EU it's much harder to patent software (or at least it was), they used to require that the software patent only be in the context of a business method
[17:16:13] <CaptHindsight> the attitude is to grant and let the courts decide
[17:16:14] <Gigs-> you couldn't patent say a wavelet codec, you could only patent using a wavelet codec to send x-rays etc
[17:17:46] <Gigs-> I think that's a good example, the first guy who figured out how to do wavelet perceptual lossy codecs should have probably gotten a patent... but every tiny variation on it shouldn't get its own patent
[17:18:59] <CaptHindsight> http://www.freepatentsonline.com/6994809.html this was filed just to show how silly this has become
[17:19:13] <Gigs-> is that the swing

[17:22:31] <Gigs-> I "invented" a sort of pin gauge... people have wrote me to ask if it's patented
[17:22:54] <Gigs-> mixed feelings there since I really don't think it should be patentable, but part of me knows the USPTO would probably approve it anyway

[17:29:00] <IchGuckLive> no snow for this winter as to count
[17:29:14] <Gigs-> much different cultural attitudes toward that sort of thing in china
[17:29:33] <mozmck> Gigs-: yes, you can even be sued for plagarizing your own writings! pretty neat...
[17:29:53] <CaptHindsight> lots of factories in China operate making the actual product during the day and then after hours so "extra" parts get made that always fall off the trucks
[17:30:16] <Gigs-> on Wikipedia we give people copyright warnings for posting their own work that they published elsewhere first, that sucks... they never understand and just think we are crazy
[17:30:31] <IchGuckLive> CaptHindsight: THATS the fun part that makes the profit
[17:31:01] <CaptHindsight> it's fun finding sneakers with 3 different logos on them, all made in the legit factory but assembled elsewhere
[17:31:05] <mozmck> that is crazy if someone else does not hold the copyright.

[17:31:47] <IchGuckLive> there are so many exact the same but noeone has parts
[17:32:02] <Gigs-> mozmck: as well a lot of the time it's stuff they did as part of their job and people don't realize that work generated as an employee almost always winds up copyright to the company not to them personally
[17:32:17] <mozmck> interesting. Oh, well, I despise copyright and patents in general.
[17:32:38] <mozmck> Yes, and most publishers "own" the authors works too.
[17:32:46] <Gigs-> yeah so it gets sticky fast

[17:34:43] <jdh> I need an oxygen analyzer that will measure 0-5ppm O2 in helium. Any suggestions?
[17:34:57] <Gigs-> whew, that's low
[17:35:08] <jdh> well, 0-50ppm, but accurate down to at least 5
[17:36:08] <Gigs-> what's your budget? I have the feeling you are in the pricey industrial range
[17:36:26] <jdh> less than $10k would be good
[17:36:46] <Gigs-> check Omega sensors
[17:36:50] <CaptHindsight> jdh: under what conditions?
[17:37:26] <jdh> Capt: pre-weld, room temp, clean gas

[17:40:26] <Gigs-> heh I go low tech you go super high tech
[17:40:53] <jdh> the helium itself is pure enough. It is welding in an enclosed box. Also needs a cooldown area
[17:42:23] <Gigs-> you could do a little circuit off the box through the oxygen reactor/adsorber to keep the atmosphere in there clean
[17:42:42] <CaptHindsight> sintering reactive metals has the same conditions and problems
[17:44:01] <jdh> inserting/removing parts always allows a little atmosphere in, even with positive pressure.
[17:44:32] <Gigs-> I don't know how much the box I linked to is, but I suspect it's probably right around 10k
[17:44:47] <CaptHindsight> can you have more that one airlock?

[17:49:51] <Gigs-> as expensive as helium is an oxygen scavenger system is probably going to be cheaper in the long run if you currently just flush until your levels drop

[17:50:32] <jdh> nitrogen embrittlement
[17:50:45] <Gigs-> even at a few ppm?
[17:50:53] <jdh> dunno about that low
[17:51:37] <jdh> oxygen scavenging would be good from a process perspective, but I still have to measure.

[18:30:54] <andypugh> No, it isn't.
[18:31:38] <andypugh> The foam liner is meant to compress. The shell is meant to remain intact to hold the foam liner in place.

[18:32:40] <Gigs-> but they don't make them out of steel for a reason :P
[18:33:04] <andypugh> Mainly weight. And rust.
[18:33:26] <R2E4_> Whats the popint of the helmet if it doesnt take the impact?
[18:33:34] <Gigs-> now I want a brushed titanium helmet even though I never ride a bike
[18:33:40] <R2E4_> ITs the same priciple as the safer barrier in Nascar no?
[18:33:47] <andypugh> When I retired the plastic hat (bought a fibreglass one) I tried to smash it with a sleghammer. I failed.
[18:34:24] <andypugh> A helmet is made of two parts. A tough, resilient shell and a sfot, deformable foam liner.
[18:35:06] <andypugh> The foam liner absorbs the impact. The shell holds the whle thing together, spreads the load and protects against penetrating injuries.
[18:35:33] <andypugh> This is a subject I know a fait bit about. I used to work in crash testing.

[18:37:40] <Jymmm> archivist: and the bike?
[18:38:06] <archivist> jumped back on and continued the journey
[18:38:13] <Jymmm> I tested my helmet on the asphalt once
[18:38:39] <archivist> I just rolled around on a grassy verge
[18:39:02] <Jymmm> It survived, my leather boots got a hole via friction burn them though
[18:39:10] <Jymmm> in^
[18:40:34] <R2E4_> Both the shell and the liner compress if hit hard, spreading the forces
[18:40:34] <R2E4_> of impact throughout the helmet material. The more impact-energy
[18:40:34] <R2E4_> deflected or absorbed, the less there is of it to reach your head and
[18:40:34] <R2E4_> brain and do damage. Some helmet shells delaminate on impact.
[18:40:34] <R2E4_> Others may crack and break if forced to take a severe hit; this is one
[18:40:34] <R2E4_> way a helmet acts to absorb shock. It is doing its intended job. Impact
[18:40:34] <R2E4_> damage from a crash to the non-resilient liner may be invisible to the
[18:40:35] <R2E4_> eye; it may look normal, but it may have little protective value left and
[18:40:35] <R2E4_> should be replaced.
[18:41:01] <R2E4_> I guess both voices could be right.
[18:41:28] <R2E4_> Thats from http://msf-usa.org/downloads/helmet_CSI.pdf
[18:42:05] <andypugh> The shell will often be damaged during a crash. But it isn't _necessary_ that it be damaged in order for the helmet to do the job. And that was the statement I was objecting to.
[18:42:37] <R2E4_> yeah your right
[18:42:56] <Loetmichel> andypugh: hrhr, tell me about it
[18:43:06] <Loetmichel> i have destroyed about 10 helmets to date

[19:51:41] <CaptHindsight> fun stuff today
[19:53:20] <heathmanc> anybody got a source for decent nema23 servos?
[19:53:48] <heathmanc> besides keling
[19:53:59] <heathmanc> haven't heard anybody ever really talk about them
[19:54:33] <CaptHindsight> andypugh: what was that source of yours? they had really high torque
[19:54:41] <R2E4_> I pulled the shafts .5" latterally out of my keiling steppers.... on my router
[19:54:57] <CaptHindsight> heathmanc: I use lots by Parker
[19:55:12] <CaptHindsight> AC servos
[19:55:16] <heathmanc> just looking for something peak torque 300-400oz in, incremental
[19:55:26] <CaptHindsight> heathmanc: keling only has DC servos
[19:56:15] <andypugh> Omron?
[19:56:52] <CaptHindsight> yes, but I think he might be looking for DC. Which are you looking for heathmanc?
[19:56:56] <andypugh> heathmanc: Do you want new, or would you take second-hand?
[19:57:13] <heathmanc> second hand is fine if they aren't some no-name
[19:57:19] <heathmanc> i would prefer DC
[19:57:35] <heathmanc> AC would work, would get some pwm amps from pico probably
[19:58:22] <Tom_itx> heathmanc i got mine from keelinginc
[19:58:40] <Tom_itx> steppers that is
[19:58:55] <heathmanc> I have bought steppers from him before, this is for a servo system
[19:59:12] <andypugh> I wonder how well these hybrid stepper systems work? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CNC-Hybrid-Closed-loop-Step-Servo-Drive-Driver-2HSS86H-4-5N-M-Motor-Encoder-/281237656097?pt=UK_BOI_Industrial_Automation_Control_ET&hash=item417b121221
[19:59:14] <Tom_itx> the steppers were fine
[19:59:33] <Tom_itx> his servos are skewed rotor
[19:59:35] <heathmanc> I don't know, I see them everywhere now
[19:59:41] <Tom_itx> at least some of them are
[19:59:51] <heathmanc> i just need something to interface dumb and let linux and mesa do their thing
[20:02:06] <heathmanc> would prefer them to be DC to use with mesa 7i29

[20:12:15] <andypugh> heathmanc: I am using the Mesa 8i20 with great success.
[20:12:21] <heathmanc> i have so much crapy lying around i need ot get rid of
[20:12:31] <heathmanc> not sure i want to fork over the money for 4 8i20
[20:12:45] <heathmanc> and they are overkill for a taig mill and a 7x14 lathe
[20:13:22] <andypugh> You get 5 for the price of 4 with the bulk discount :-)
[20:13:39] <heathmanc> i have a bunch of mitsubishi mr-j2 and allen bradley ultra3000 drives
[20:13:56] <heathmanc> lol, if i needed 4 that would be great!
[20:13:56] <jdh> i'll pay for the fifth one.
[20:13:56] <andypugh> So why not use them?
[20:14:27] <CaptHindsight> the AB Ultras are nice
[20:14:31] <heathmanc> the allen bradley stuff is nice, but the tuning is a pain.. i just want something dumb and only tune one loop
[20:14:41] <heathmanc> i have ultra3000s on the taig mill right now with 270watt motors
[20:14:55] <heathmanc> but they have smart encoders that are sin/cos
[20:15:22] <heathmanc> and two of the amps don't have a recent firmware so they commutation doesn't autodetect quite right the first time they are turned on
[20:15:29] <CaptHindsight> do you have a scope for tuning?
[20:15:49] <heathmanc> yes, i have a tektronix digital scope
[20:16:08] <heathmanc> truth be told, i am really an amater
[20:16:14] <heathmanc> amateur even
[20:16:29] <CaptHindsight> it's just takes some time to tune
[20:16:38] <heathmanc> that's not the biggest issue
[20:16:44] <CaptHindsight> some people just don't like to bother
[20:17:06] <heathmanc> when i enable the drive after it's been turned on the first time, the servos hunt for a while in one direction until they find whatever they are "looking for"
[20:17:10] <heathmanc> after that, it's fine
[20:17:27] <CaptHindsight> hunt fast or slow?
[20:17:29] <heathmanc> but I'm looking for something more compact than that setup, and something i can move easily to a lathe
[20:17:34] <heathmanc> slow
[20:17:44] <R2E4_> IS pulse coder another name for encoder?
[20:17:49] <heathmanc> it's a firmware issue with the drive, and AB doesn't just give up firmware
[20:18:01] <CaptHindsight> yeah
[20:18:19] <heathmanc> so instead of using them as intelligent encoders, i have to select sin/cos and a serial commutation
[20:18:34] <heathmanc> but it isn't quite right.. the drive that has the newer firmware works great
[20:20:34] <heathmanc> so, with the 8i20, was the setup pretty easy?
[20:20:34] adfa is now known as voxadam
[20:21:01] <andypugh> Not for me.
[20:21:17] <andypugh> I had to write a driver, and the bldc HAL component.
[20:21:19] <andypugh> :-)
[20:21:26] <CaptHindsight> what year is that older ultra3000 from?
[20:21:26] <heathmanc> i am moving to a single board computer, and a 4i69 anything io on a pci-104 bus
[20:21:26] <andypugh> It should be easier now.
[20:21:57] <CaptHindsight> heathmanc: what firmware rev?
[20:22:52] <heathmanc> a date code of 1502
[20:23:00] <heathmanc> and firmwares from 1.3 to 1.4ish
[20:23:05] <heathmanc> needs to be 1.52 minimum
[20:23:21] <heathmanc> i have 7 of these drives total
[20:23:26] <heathmanc> only one has 1.52
[20:23:37] <heathmanc> they would work great for a regular incremental encoder
[20:23:38] <CaptHindsight> 2098-DSD-010 or the -005?
[20:23:52] <heathmanc> i have four of the 005
[20:23:59] <heathmanc> and one 010, and two 020
[20:24:15] <CaptHindsight> I might have a home for them if you decide to get rid of them
[20:24:17] <heathmanc> the last 3 are sercos models, but run fine not on sercos
[20:24:47] <heathmanc> they are great drives, the ultraware software is nice
[20:24:52] <heathmanc> but again, I am a hobbyist
[20:25:13] <CaptHindsight> I mostly use them to control linear servos
[20:26:02] <heathmanc> i am just looking for something more compact
[20:26:18] <heathmanc> need to find something to do with the mitsubishi mr-j2s amps also
[20:26:30] <heathmanc> don't have any extra servos for those

[21:06:22] <heathmanc> so a 4i69, 7i47s, and 7i37com and 4x8i20 should work
[21:07:24] <heathmanc> well, no 7i47s, a 7i44 and them something to control analog out for spindle
[21:09:04] <andypugh> Cheapest setup would be 5i25 + 7i74 + another DB25 IO card for the GPIO.
[21:09:27] <heathmanc> i already have a 5i20, 7i37com, 7i48, 4i69
[21:10:29] <heathmanc> so i will be using the 4i69 on the single board computer
[21:10:42] <andypugh> Ah, in that case you would only need the 7i44, and it is fairly cheap: http://store.mesanet.com/index.php?route=product/product&filter_name=7i44&product_id=96
[21:10:48] <heathmanc> right
[21:10:55] <heathmanc> but that doesn't give me analog spindle control

[22:29:43] <heathmanc> they are 270watt
[22:29:48] <heathmanc> overkill for the taig
[22:30:01] <heathmanc> but the plan is a bigger mill in a couple years
[22:30:18] <andypugh> 270W is rather small for the 8i20, it lacks resolution at low currents (or so I think PCW has said)
[22:30:53] <andypugh> What voltage are they?
[22:31:02] <andypugh> (How fast do they run at 50V?)
[22:31:14] <heathmanc> they are 230V
[22:31:25] <andypugh> Hmm.
[22:31:37] <heathmanc> these won't be the ones i am using, they have intelligent absolute encoders
[22:31:46] <andypugh> 7i39 will probably spin them a bit slowly then.
[22:32:26] <andypugh> We have been working on BiSS and SSI, the drivers are there in Master
[22:32:58] <heathmanc> these use stegmann i believe
[22:33:01] <heathmanc> don't know how that compares

[22:34:10] <heathmanc> i have some 200v 400w sanyo denki P5 ac servos that i would like to use also
[22:34:17] <heathmanc> but again, some funky encoder
[22:34:23] <heathmanc> they are for my cnc router project
[22:37:37] <andypugh> We need to work on these funky encoders.

[22:38:30] <andypugh> I rather like resolvers.
[22:38:39] <heathmanc> I like whatever works
[22:39:05] <heathmanc> what kind of resolvers are you fitting on it?
[22:41:36] <andypugh> I don't know, it was something like £2 on eBay because the guy had no idea what it was,
[22:42:29] <heathmanc> Are you in england?

[23:09:58] <syyl-> dont tell her
[23:10:21] <andypugh> I hope to get rid of it in a year or so.
[23:10:50] <andypugh> Some fool will prbably pay good money for a combined CNC mill/lathe :-)
[23:11:35] <syyl-> of course, it seems like a good idea ;)
[23:11:40] <andypugh> (and it does actually do good work as long as the parts are small and the cuts are light)
[23:13:28] <andypugh> It isn't a good idea to take a 7" lathe and stretch it to 9". It is then a bad idea to make it a 9x40 rather than 7x20. It is an even worse idea to then bolt on a milling head, as V-flat lathe beds make lousy milling tables.
[23:14:05] <andypugh> It is then an even worse idea to convert such a machine to CNC :-)
[23:14:24] <syyl-> ;)
[23:14:37] <syyl-> i had a lough :D
[23:14:44] <heathmanc> lol, but that's how you learn what you really want

[23:17:49] <andypugh> Yes, indeed. Which is why I went on to convert a proper machine made in Yorkshire by folk who knew what they were doing, using proper-sized motors and custom iron castings rather than milled aluminium.
[23:18:41] <andypugh> I am pretty proud of the Harrison conversion, I think it is a bit like Harrison themselves might have done it.

[23:34:54] <nlancaster> andypugh, the lathe is "the" basic machine tool. all others including other laths can be built with a lathe.
[23:35:25] <andypugh> nlancaster: And the sky is blue and water is wet :-)
[23:37:31] <nlancaster> uh?
[23:37:48] <nlancaster> i am serious. the lathe can replicate itself. and machine all hte parts to build a mill.
[23:38:16] <nlancaster> if asked which came first, the lathe or the mill? The Lathe!
[23:39:45] <CaptHindsight> http://www.camachinetools.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/greece-ancient-athenian-agora-mill-stones.jpg the ancient greeks had mills
[23:40:27] <CaptHindsight> never heard of an ancient greek lathe :)
[23:40:46] <nlancaster> they had them
[23:41:04] <nlancaster> and a mill stone, is not a "Mill"

[23:55:15] <i_tom> CaptHindsight: ancient lathes look nearly close to as we know it today
[23:55:45] <i_tom> the workpiece was rotated by the energy of falling water or human force (slaves)
[23:56:09] <i_tom> for sure the lathe is invented before the mill
