It's time to get the KRmc01 moving.

In this section I am going to get the MASSO motor control leads connected to the G540.

 

 

KRmc01 MASSO to G540

 

MASSO Axis Configuration

Before starting make sure you have set the MASSO to inches.  If you want to use metric units, you will have to convert the settings shown here.

Set the X axis

  • Distance Per Rev: 1
  • Pulses per Rev: 10000
  • Max Feed: 100
  • Accel: 10
  • Travel Min: -99
  • Travel Max: 99

Set the Y axis

  • Distance Per Rev: 1
  • Pulses per Rev: 10000
  • Max Feed: 100
  • Accel: 10
  • Travel Min: -99
  • Travel Max: 99

Set the Z axis

  • Distance Per Rev: 1
  • Pulses per Rev: 10000
  • Max Feed: 30
  • Accel: 1
  • Travel Min: -20
  • Travel Max: 20

Note that you can lower the Accel rate on all axis to suit your comfort while jogging.

Also, the A and B axis are not being used at this time.

 

 

Connect the Step and Direction Wires

I added 8 wires between the G540 DB25 connector and the MASSO axis connectors.

  • DB25 Pin 2 to MASSO X S+
  • DB25 Pin 3 to MASSO X D +
  • DB25 Pin 4 to MASSO Y S+
  • DB25 Pin 5 to MASSO Y D+
  • DB25 Pin 6 to MASSO Z S+
  • DB25 Pin 7 to MASSO Z D+
