Hello!

I just buy a MPG and ... i plan to work on mach3. But after some time i decided to use LinuxCNC.
So my MPG is for mach3 (seller say that).
My question: is there anyway i can use that MPG on LinuxCNC and if answer is YES, how?



PS: this is a link to the pendant i buy (CNC MACH3 USB Industrial Electronic Handwheel 4 Axis Manual Pulse Generator MPG Pendant Handwheel )

It will probably work to an extent. It might even be compatible with one of the existing drivers (XHC_HB04, XHC-HB06).

I would try plugging it in and using the hal_input component to see what can be seen in HAL.

linuxcnc.org/docs/2.8/html/man/man1/hal_input.1.html

There is a rather old but still useful page on the wiki:
wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Simple_Remote_Pendant
wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Adding...imple_Remote_Pendant

Start off slowly by reading the docs, the devs put a lot of effort into them.

linuxcnc.org/docs/2.8/html/hal/intro.html

There is some simple examples you can work through. Basically HAL is just a way to connect things together, each HAL component can be though of as a black box with inputs & outputs.

I build my own machine with alot of automatic things and good machanic. But is better for me to pay to someone to make my MPG work then i spend alot of time in something i don't understand. Anyway thanks for information.
