    Had some time tonight since I had to wait for my daughter to fall asleep so I could be the Easter Bunny. I would really appreciate it if you could test this and see if it fixed the problem, I can't seem to reproduce this so I have no way to test.
    I added if string null/empty don't send.

    Seems to be OK now. I enabled and disabled it twice, and it opens just fine now.
    The values written in the profile for the min and max match what's on the spindle setup page.

    The plugin writes min and max RPM to pro file on closing...I set the HYPLUGIN SetUp window to not allow these fields to be left empty and only allow 0-9 digits.
    I missed this yesterday, and neglected to tell you that I never entered any values in the plugin Config window, since I don't have my RS485 converter yet.

    But it looks like you've fixed it.
    Hopefully my converter shows up early so I can test it out.

    I was so focused on what code did when the calculate button was pressed I overlooked that if button was never pressed but plugin enable it can obviously cause this. I think I got it covered on all ends now, if all else fails and field is empty it won't write to pro file.

    Thanks for your help,
    Dan

    OK, so Amazon came through with my RS485 converter, $7, delivered on Easter Sunday.
    It took me a little bit to get it running, but it's pretty slick.
    Couple little things.

    I think the reason that it didn't initially work, was that I didn't click the Calculate button. I was glancing through the instructions, and didn't know it was required.
    Perhaps change the two buttons to:
    Save Port Settings (Save)
    Save Motor Settings (Calculate)
    This would make more sense to those that don't read manuals (Most people).

    If it were me, I'd remove the second com and baud rate text boxes, and just save what's in the combo boxes? Or is there an issue with that? I found that slightly confusing?

    Minor issues:
    I have my min at 8000 and max at 24,000.
    If I do an S12000, and an override of 50%, your Sact field shows 6000, and it should show 8000, as that's what the VFD is at. And strangely, the VFD goes to 7980, and not 8000, when it's commanded to a speed lower than 8000?


    And not your problem, but FYI, if you have an analog voltage wire connected to the VI terminal, with 0V on it (I think, I didn't check), the analog VI was restricting the voltage to 11880rpm. If I types in S20000 in MDI, it would go to 11880. Very strange?? Enable PWM was not checked. As soon as I removed the VI wire, all was well.

    Bottom line, you've done a fine job, and a great service to the UCCNC community. Well done.

    I'm going to do a new video showing the control with your plugin.
    I also have a link to it on my website. I'll also add a link to the converter I bought, and the driver I found for Windows 10 x64.

    Thankyou Gerry that means alot coming from you.

    The PWM has to be checked in spindle set up, if "step/direction spindle" is checked max rpm will be 11880. There's a post on this in the cncdrive HYPLUGIN thread and I never got around to adding to set up instructions, it is mentioned here in post #86.

    Yes the RPM speed can go below min RPM setting with spindle override, it won't go above 24000 rpm though. I been holding back uploading HY6 that implements the Amp feature to tweak all these issues mentioned so it could be called final release.

    Don't know what version you are using but the testHY6 has the Amp feature.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    I meant to mention the Amps setting.
    I didn't try it, but I think that you may be mistaken.
    Keep in mind that I have no idea if I'm right, but, I think that the ±1.0 amps I'm seeing is correct at no load, and should be the number that you should be displaying?
    Until I start cutting, I won't really know though.
    I got a 1/2" collet yesterday. I put a small brass rod in it, and grabbed it with a leather glove while it was spinning. I could get it up to around 2 amps.
    Some online calculators are telling me that1 amp is about 0.4HP, which would seem about right to me with no load.
    Imo, you should never be displaying more amps then the max you have set in the VFD. In my case, 8.5.

    But I could be all wrong.

    Video almost uploaded. Will post in a few minutes.

    The plugin Amp field is displaying whatever is outputted by the HY VFD, the same as what the VFD is displaying. All I did was add it to set amps(PD142) of VFD which I believe is correct. The VFD displays out amps above this setting(PD142).

    I can be very wrong also... That's why I haven't technically uploaded yet,removing the PD142 read and write will be easy and 1 less step for the plugin.


    GREAT VIDEO!!!

    After doing some reading I still wasn't able to come up with definitive answer but what your suggesting is starting to make a lot more sense than what I was assuming. One thing that's for sure is this out amp reading outputted by the HY VFD definitely increase's under load and that's all I was after. For this to be used as a tool for fine tuning cuts and protection to spindle.

    I intend to set it's display exactly as the VFD outputs it like you suggested.

    Thanks for your help,
    Dan

    Default Re: HYPLUGIN UpDated to 97

    Hello all, I have a new updated version of this plugin and should be and hopefully last providing no reported bugs. Anyone using this plugin should download since a lot been rewritten(especially below 95) and new features were added and some minor bugs fixed.

    Minor bugs fixed:

    1. Spindle override would allow rpm to go lower than rpm min setting and was fixed.

    2. Using 2017 screenset slider for spindle override, if going back and forth quickly the rpm would sometimes prematurely set and was fixed. (Even though the only time doing that would be for testing )

    3. The test version I uploaded for ger21 and others have downloaded had issues with the amp output and was rewritten and fixed.

    4. Tried to make buttons more clear in the hyplugin configure window. I do strongly suggest reading setup instructions because 1 step missed plugin won't work.


    New Features:

    1. Output spindle/motor Amps. The Huanyang VFD outputs several types of info but this I found to be of use. You can monitor load on spindle while cutting and can easily adjust with spindle and feedrate override. This feature does require you to add a new field, what I did is just copied Sact field in screenset edit in UCCNC. It's in setup instructions enclosed with zip.

    2. RPM ONLY. I added this due to a few request. If you check this box plugin sends no commands for cw and ccw on and spindle off. This feature is used if you use other hardware for spindle on/off. It's in setup instructions enclosed with zip.
