Hi Guys & Girls i am still having issues with the THC upgrade and Fire Control. I am in Oz and had the first OG table in the country.
About 18 months ago we extended our table to accommodate full sheets of steel and it has run flawless ever since with all the original electronics and Mach3.
I was about to build my own THC System when the upgrade was released so we decided to purchase the upgrade thinking it would be more reliable being a fully integrated system. Well so for it has been far from a reliable system and since our business is our table i need to get to the bottom of these issues.
At the moment i have gone back to using Mach3 to keep up with orders and when we get a chance we keep trying to work out the bugs so any help would be great.
We have performed all the checks that are listed in the trouble shooting guide and i will list the problems and results.
Problem 1) SOLVED
Table in Rapid movement was to fast for our long lead screws on our extended table. The answer to this was to modify the code in the post processor in relation to rapid movements.
Problem 2) We keep getting an error with THC turned on, i have seen a lot of people with the same or similar problem where it pierces the stops with an error message (See Below) I have tried adjusting the pierce delay all the way from .4sec all the way to 3sec in .1sec increments with the same results for all. If i turn THC off and just use IHS it works fine.
When i perform the voltage test i get 118v Raw before the VIM and 1.6v after the VIM which is all with in specs (sorry i forgot to write down my live voltage when performing a straight line cut)
All other test where ok.
Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks in advance.
