    Default LASER CONTROL CARD

    Looking for laser control card manufacture that supports AC servos; preferably something that can be setup by the user with minimal effort and without having to contact someone overseas.

    Recommendations are welcome

    Do you have the interface software that is required to set the parameters for that card or know where to download it?

    You could try Lightobject.com Sacramento (Elk Grove) DSP CO2 laser machine & Parts. Solar panel & Electronics Supplier all of Northern California
    The last version of their controller (blue board) I think supports the 2 pulse or pulse and direction outputs.
    Marco, the owner, is in China until Jan but I think he is still contactable through the forum on the website. I have just upgraded to the latest 2012 board and they are very good and super smooth. The board/software are in a constant state of upgrades and improvements which make it a pretty impressive set of tools for the laser. I think it is based on the Leetro design.
    At the top of the page you will find the link to the support forum.

    Lightobject is not for servos. It is for steppers only.
    Real servo-cooperating card has encoder inputs on board just like MPC6575.

    There is no DEMO LaserCut. You need to have USB Key to rus software.

    My understanding is that you would be running servo drives after the DSP board to run the servos unless you are after a one stop solution and then you would have to go Galil or something like it for a LOT more dollars. I am not aware of any software to easily set them up either. Maybe a European reseller might have a card for it.

    Have the 6575 card now; it’s been two months from the time I installed it and the machine is still all gooned up. The best I can figure is the control card settings are not set properly. Tired of waiting, tired of receiving parts that do not fix things, tired of lack/poor documentation…

    The biggest problem I have had with these type of cards is setting up the limit switches. You have to be so specific which way you do it and whether you set it for High signal or Low signal.
    can you post some pictures of the settings screens and sub screens so we can have a look at them and maybe we can help you out a bit.

    Richard,
    That is the very crux of my issue; it is unclear to me on how to access these settings from the manufactures manual.

    If I had an instruction set or knew the location of said interface I would attempt to correct these issues myself.

    The only reference within the manual is to the HMI and bin settings but it is not well defined

    Poor documentation and poor after sale service is normal for LEETRO and most of Chinese Companies.
    I am setting all Leetro MPC cards in our machines but it is too far....

    So far Leetro has answered the mail; I have requested the setup procedures for the card. It is my hope they provide this data/answer the mail.
    My position on this matter is establishing a second source that is more robust and easily supported; if you have the setup documentation/interface I would be interested in a copy if you are willing to share.…

    If you can do a few screen grabs then we might be able to point you in the right direction but not being able to view what is on the screen makes it very hard.
    Have you a link to the laserCut software that I can download and have a look myself?
