    Default Kflop/Kanalog/Mach3 setup motor how to ?

    Hi guys,

    got a newbie question here, i've install mach 3 then the kflop plugin on top.

    i've setup the wiring with the encoder -A +A -B +B on the kanalog. when i move the motor i see the number change in kmotion, so that good.

    i ve got 2 questions:


    1- for my servo amplifier my connection goes 1- analog sheild signal 2- Analog differential + (plus) 3- Analog differential - (minus)

    so do i take the kanalog +/-10V to the 2-analog differential + (plus) and the kanalog gnd to the 3-analog differential (minus)

    2- how do i calibrate the motor in with kmotion ? i didn't know where to go ? do i go into config/flash ? or do i calibrate in mach 3 directly.

    oh i was able to get the version send via kmotion so i'm doing something right.

    thanks for the help guys first time with kflop /kanalog Kflop/Kanalog/Mach3  setup motor how to ?-capture-png

    note to self found config for step on youtube:

    search to see if they have one with mach3 and kanalog integration.

    yes

    First get everything configured, tested, and tuned in KMotion.exe using encoder counts before running Mach3. Then set your system resolution in the Mach3 Motor Tuning. See the wiki:
    Dynomotion

    You might also read some initial testing and tuning steps here:
    Kanalog Hardware Info - Dynomotion
