    I have retrofit a BP12 Optima before, similar hardware. List what you have in mind for your retrofit and I'm happy to make suggestions/corrections.

    I want to change the PLC and NUM control with linux cnc and mesa cards. The mechanic part of the machine it is OK. The PLC and the NUM 750 it is ancient.
    I I want to use so much as possible from the parts that exist. I have 3 Indramat servo ,1 main spindle ,15 vertical drills in T form 3 horizontal drills and 1 mill cuter.
    Every help i can get it is OK. If you want something specific about the machine just post on threat.I can also read and write in German.

    Thank you very much.

    Do you have experience from former retrofits?

    A Mesa 7i92, 7i77 and an additional card for more IO would be ok for a start. The VFD takes 0-10V, just like the Indramat servo amps.

    i think this mesa cards could control everything on the machine. (6i25 + 7i77 + 7i74 + 7i71 + 7i70) I want to follow the way from lavalu under Lonnox - Home. They have a guide how to do.
    I do make the retrofit i have to cooperate with a electronic technician that make the rest of our support in workshop. I am a carpenter cabinetmaker special wood constructions .
    The reason that i want help it is that if somebody have already make it to give me a guide so i can make it step by step quickly because i have need to work wit the machine.
    Also if someone knows which cam can i use with linux CNC can post.
    I write everything on this forum and if we be much maybe i start a wikipage so others can find the way easier.

    Share the knowledge.

    Here is my linuxcnc config for a Homag/Weeke BP machine: https://github.com/aShure/cnc-config...r/justinbieber

    Open the readme in an editor that understands the markup syntax and it'll look nicer.
    io.hal contains the inputs and outputs.

    One Mesa 7i77 does not have enough outputs to control all functions. I used additional GPIO from the Mesa FPGA with galvanic isolation and relays.
