    Mc500v probe possibilites?

    Ok so this had me stumped. I feel like I'm understanding it when I'm looking at it but to sit down and try to write out a foreign language to me... I find that I don't really know where to start with it. In the mean time I've been playing with the machine and collecting tooling. I got some...

    3 phase mishap, machine stuck in estop now?

    Seems to be. Last night I started the machine twice and run through every possible combo i could think of on/off/estop buttons and everything seems to be totally back to normal. I did this all before bed though, ill load my tools and give it another test today after I get home I do agree that it...

    3 phase mishap, machine stuck in estop now?

    Sticking contactor potentially?? I pushed this contactor on this other power board and heard the noise I've been looking for so I went back to the control panel and everything worked fine. I wonder if it was just not seated right or something. Is this a sign the contactor is going out or is this...

    3 phase mishap, machine stuck in estop now?

    Ok so the technical term i was looking for I found in my manual is "composite control power supply unit" that will now be dubbed "cps" for short. Which does transform 200+v down to 5v 12v and 24v To clear up any general confusion from how I described the situation -got mill home -hooked up...

    3 phase mishap, machine stuck in estop now?

    So I checked last night and got my x axis off the home switch and still nothing.. (y and z were in the middle of travel) I broke out the multimeter and started plugging away at my power converter that supplies all the other voltages to the machine and I have no power 5v/12v/24v The easy fuses i...

    3 phase mishap, machine stuck in estop now?

    The converters don't have a brake. My servos have brakes but I'm not hearing the contactor that unlocks the servos when you give them power on startup. I'll have to pull some fuses and check. The mill also seemed to work fine with the 10hp phase converter and immediately after installing the 15hp

    3 phase mishap, machine stuck in estop now?

    I have a 86 matsuura mc500v2 with a yasnac mx2 control and a phasamatic r15 phase converter. I also picked up another phase converter that i decided not to use cause it's a 10hp but the machine also seems to startup fine on it. When I was replacing the 10hp with the 15hp I must of not used my...

    Matsuura mc500v2 random th error alarm

    This is the cable I used and dnc device. I'll try to swing by the shop today and ohm out the cable and figure out the exact configuration of my cable.

    Matsuura mc500v2 random th error alarm

    So I'm looking for the machine pinout in the manuals and I haven't seen much yet. Is this something I just need to peek in and see what pins are being used and then post the schematic that came with my dnc device?

    Matsuura mc500v2 random th error alarm

    Ok so I checked out the baud rate suggestion and switched everything over from 9600 baud rate and 2 stop bits to 4800 baud rate and 1 stop bit and the thing is running great. I put an hour of cnc cutting time on it with zero errors. I was previously only getting like 30 percent of the program...

    Matsuura mc500v2 random th error alarm

    So in my parameter manual 6021 d5 1 executes on/off control of rts during dnc operation 0 sets rts state to on during dnc operation 6022 d0 1 enables read of iso tape possible even without parity 0disables read of is tape without parity 6026/6027 d5 1 does not allow the control code (dc1-4) to...

    Matsuura mc500v2 random th error alarm

    I honestly hadn't tried anything yet just because I wasn't 100 percent sure it's what I thought it was. I will set a lower baud rate between the two devices tomorrow and check back. I'm feeding from USB-through the dnc box if that matters

    Matsuura mc500v2 random th error alarm

    83 matsuura mc500v2 mx2 yasnac control I been getting my machine all dialed in a figuring out the features and what not and I finally got to let some cnc chips fly with the thing, and its awesome!! Thing is a total tank and the tool changes on its own is awesome. Only issue is I seem to get...

    Mc500v probe possibilites?

    Does g31 (skip function) skip the rest of the current block when it senses the input signal from the probe (1000)? I was under the impression skip function just skipped the next line but idk.

    Are the when supposed to be if? Are you needing the my variables defined or am I just so far off track that it's unreadable?

    Mc500v probe possibilites?

    First of all I'd like to admit that s%#&s a little deeper than I thought out here in macroland.. I went and printed off a hard copy of my yasnac and after rereading over and over again. Here is my attempt at a macro homing x axis on a square. I want to verify i'm at least on the right track...

    Mc500v probe possibilites?

    I gotcha, I found a macro section in my yasnac manual (270 pages) last night with a list a variables that matched some of the numbers and made way more sense that what I had in my head yesterday. I should be able to actually take a stab at a macro today after work sometime.

    Mc500v probe possibilites?

    So my macro shouldn't even have g code per say but rather using the list of inputs and outputs to tell the machine what's going on? Those are out of the machine manual, I'll have to go pull up my yasnac manual and see if it has stuff about macros. I found some useful diagrams in the yasnac...

    Mc500v probe possibilites?

    I started writing up something, if I use g10, is the coordinates in reference to the machine home reference or is it in relation to current position?

    Mc500v probe possibilites?

    1) interesting.. The old bridge port I would say has been around the block a time or several which is where I got my 1-3 though number. I haven't got to machine on my matsuura yet but it seems to be in really good shape. Maybe the accuracy of my edge finder will go up when I officially get...
