Planning a mill project (its my 1st time at this) and came across a set of Mitsubishi HC-PQ 43 servos and matched MR-C drivers at a good price..
I'm struggling to get them to work at all though.. the drives and servos themselves are fine - the drivers show no errors; in manual mode, I can jog back and forward from the driver I/F..
I can't for the life of me seem to get them to work driven by my PC though (Mach3). The I/F itself is fine (I have tested the pin outs all work as expected showing 4.5v or so), but whatever pin combination for step and direction I try on the drivers, I get nothing..
I am working from the mitsubishi manual, which you can see here:
I am sure that someone is going to tell me I've been stupid and overlooked something obvious here (one things I read suggested that the driver required 24v logic rather than 5v).. but like I say this is all new to me and I'l having to learn as I go.. any help would be appreciated.
