MILLING DOUBLE SIDED PCB’S WITH CNC USB CONTROLLERS This tutorial will help you with production of double-sided PCB’s with your CNC machine. Before you start, please be sure that machine is properly set-up and calibrated. Gerber and drill files should be generated with correct parameters. Since tutorial for single sided PCB’s already describes the gerber […]
HOW TO CONNECT PROBOTIX MOTOR DRIVER WITH 10 PIN CABLE? It is easy to create 10pin cable for Probotix driver – just “cross” two wires to other side.
Ich werde versuchen ihnen zu zeigen, wie Sie ihre CNC mit PlanetCNC Software einstellen. Ich werde meine Portal-Maschine als Beispiel verwenden, aber Sie können es auf allen Maschinentypen auf diese Weise tun. Ich benutze Metrik (Millimeter) Einheiten, aber alles ist mit imperialen (Zoll) Einheiten außer Zahlen, die unterschiedlich sind (1mm ist etwa 0.03937inch), gleich. “Schritte […]
Here you can download schematics, pcb, firmware and software – everything needed for DIY build. DIY controllers are same as assambled Mk1 from my shop – no differences. You can use this work and make derivative works based on it but only for noncommercial purposes. For commercial purposes you need written permission from us. Preprogrammed […]
HOW TO CONNECT AND SETUP MPG PENDANT? Settings Enable “E-Stop” to use E-Stop switch connected to CTRL1 pin. Enable “Invert” option, if your E-Stop switch is active low (NC type). Enable “Use MPG” to use MPG pendant. Most common PPR value for MPG is 100 pulses per revolution. Enable “Reverse” to set reverse MPG direction. […]
USING “PROMA COMPACT THC CONTROLLER” WITH PLANETCNC CONTROLLERS All cables should be shielded. Everything should be properly grounded and earthed. Plasma torch is a big source of EMI, so consider a proper filtering. Hardware: There are two common versions of Proma THC controller: 1.) Proma Compact THC SD controller THC controller itself generates “STEP/DIR” signals […]
WHAT ARE 5 PINS NEXT TO LED? Ext pin can be used to connect EStop or Pause switch. Ext pin must also be enabled in settings “Settings/Misc/ExtPin”. Don’t forget pull-up or pull-down resistor! Other pins can be used to connect external LED or reset button.
HOW TO USE MOTOR ENABLE/DISABLE SIGNAL WITH E-STOP? Controller can generate motor enable/disable signal on output3 when e-stop is pressed. You need to uncheck “mist output” and check “enable output”. You can also invert output signal. You can rewire output3 signal to enable pin. Source
1. If you don’t have a license you need to send us activation code and controller serial number. 2. If you have registration key, open “License activation” dialog and paste your registration key . 3. If you have license data file (.dat, .lic or .zip) you can import it. There is no functional difference if […]
CNC USB CONTROLLER DESKTOP SHORTCUT TUTORIAL If you have multiple CNC machines(Machines of different dimensions or different types of machines) with its designated controllers, and you want to use them with only one computer, it comes very handy to create desktop shortcuts with preset settings for specific machine. This way you can avoid importing setting […]
How to configure network settings for Mk3? Computer can communicate with Mk3 controller via USB or Network connection. If you choose to use Network connection then make sure that your computer with installed CNCUSB controller software is connected to network with network cable. One side of network cable goes to network switch, the other side […]
