Renishaw Renikey pairing macro for LinuxCNC

20 Feb 2021 17:35 #199546 by ZincBoy
If you have a Renishaw RMI-Q interface on your mill, there are macros available on Renishaw's website for free download to allow you to pair/un-pair the probes. Attached is a port of that macro to LinuxCNC that I use on my mill.

It expects the probe start pin on the RMI-Q to be connected to the pin in your HAL. The pin number is configurable. The macro takes two parameters, the first is the probe number (1 to 4) and the second is the operation. An operation value of 1 starts pairing the selected channel, 2 un-pairs the selected channel, and 3 un-pairs all channels.
