One feature I would request and sorry if I have missed it, is a servo fault input, I guess ideally an input per axis would be nice otherwise a global fault input signal for step/dir servo drives. I am currently setting up such a machine and tried to tie the servo fault from the drives to the estop in signal as I couldn't see a drive fault input option, but that removed the existing estop input, seems there can only be one estop in signal.

A workaround could be to link the fault signal to a limit switch but it would be nice to have a following error report if that is what happens.

Great work otherwise, about the only thing I have to manually edit so far is the max velocity, using metric 100mm/min is way too slow for anything, but I am getting quick at editing the .ini file.

Cheers.

Russell.

It isn't clear which pins you have tried to use, but for each axis there is a pin
axis.N.amp-fault-in

You can also look at:
iocontrol.0.emc-enable-in
halui.estop.activate

Can that be done inside Pncconf ?

Being a new machine I am using Pncconf a lot to change settings, as I am setting it up bit by bit.

If I edit it manually I will lose the change once Pncconf is run again.

request for allowing usb devices to be configured for gs2-vfd setup

they are going to be dev/ttyUSB# where # starts at 0

also in the gs2-vfd config that is generated

the line

net spindle-on => spindle-vfd.spindle-on

need to be changed to

net spindle-enable => spindle-vfd.spindle-on

for it to work for me

Thank You
Calvin

ok I pushed a change for the ability to set the device name for the gs2 vfd.
And fixed the signal name spindle-on

next release of 2.7 series should have it.

ok found 2 more issues

7i76 encoder mode 2 is not being set properly in the hal file

loadrt hm2_pci config=" num_encoders=1 num_pwmgens=0 num_stepgens=5 sserial_port_0=00xxxx"

should be

loadrt hm2_pci config=" num_encoders=1 num_pwmgens=0 num_stepgens=5 sserial_port_0=20xxxx"


and I had an interesting error


net joint-selected-count <= hm2_5i25.0.7i76.0.0.enc0.count

should be

net joint-selected-count <= hm2_5i25.encoder.00.count

i have attached the config it generated

Thank You
Calvin

I dont think that's an error

(the 5i25 encoder is used for the spindle while the 7i76 MPG encoder is used for jogging)
