Smart Serial not working in pathpilot

More
14 Apr 2016 07:57 #73278 by KevinCT
Hello all this is my first post here,
I am trying to get pathpilot working with the mesa 6i25-7i76, I have a pc setup with two drives one with PP installed the other with linuxcnc2.7. I have the SS IO working in Linuxcnc Clicking relays and triggering inputs, works great.

I have followed the tutorials on PP on non Tormach machines but I cannot get the SS IO to work.

I have attached the dmesg ouputs from both the working linuxcnc and PP, also the slightly modified HAL I am using in PP

Linuxcnc 2.7

no problem Kevin , i;'ll guide you through and help etc ,
i notice you posted this in another section to.

looking at your files , it appears you don't have field power connected to the 7i76 , this is required prior to starting the PC
as the serial port requires power before the 6i25 is powered up . you should then find the analog output as an option
on the spindle tab ,

and it should then give you a modified config to suit , pathpilot is fine with the 7i76 , so long as you have modified the files to load the 7i76x2 bitfile and not load the origional pathpilot version , if your not sure , just give me a call .
but please allow time zones etc , i'm in the UK .

Thank you,

Field IO is connected to 24v, it is working when I boot into LinuCNC 2.7 but not when i boot into PP.

Must I bridge all the Field IO +V "VFIELD" terminals together?

Thanks again.

Kevin.

Hi Kevin ,
no you dont need to bridge all the field terminals just apply gnd to pin 8 and 24v pwr to pin 1

cr1 should be lit once you power up the pc (5v rail )

i notice your not finding the analog spindle ( needed for the 7i76 ) from the pncconf
make sure your using the correct bit file and load pncconf and dont forget to accept to update the pins , this if 24v is applied to field power BEFORE start up
if you start the pc before power is applied it will not load the GPIO and sserial , this shows as errors soon as you come to list pins .

archive your config folder Kevin and email them to me

which version of pathpilot are you using , there's quite a bit of editing to do to get pathpilot up and running properly .
take a look at the log file in your gcode folder for clues , any errors and pathpilot will not load .

sent you a PM
Sarah

I have done it the way you describe in your Tutorial, but why can you not just rename the 5i25_7i76x2.bit file tormach_mill3.bit and replace the one in the mesa folder, then you wouldn't have to go find all mentions of it and change them.

How do I load pncconf on pathpilot?

Everything works great in LinuxCNC 2.7 and I literally shut down the PC then restart in PP and the smart Serial isn't happy. so I am fairly confident the physical requirements are being met.

I have messed around so much trying to get this to work I think I better start from scratch and send you those configs.

I copied my hal and ini files into the tmc configs folder and then ran operator_login script using the terminal to "debug" until pathpilot gui started. I am guessing I keep breaking something along the way.

this is copied from the terminal after running operator_login

look at the log files in the gcode directory , it will tell you the error
any error at any stage will result in pathpilot not starting and closing down

yes you can rename the bit file to the same as pathpilot , but dont forget to remove the pathpilot one
they are located in /lib/firmware/hm2/5i25/
you'll need to use sudo to copy the file across

your error is here

Are you saying this error should cause PP to fail and close? If so I may have broken something else too, PP still starts up it displays this error in the status if you click he e-stop it repeats the error message.

I am going to reinstall PP and start from scratch.

how are you installing pathpilot ?
and which version of linuxcnc , if you have both installed be careful you will have a confilct of rtai kernels
as pathpilot only uses the older 2.6. kernels that it is compiled for .

once you hit estop , the only way to recover is then to restart the pc , from power down

you need to remember at the moment , linuxcnc uses debian wheezy or jessie & pathpilot uses the older Ubuntu 10.04
so their are significant differences, both in kernels & linuxcnc functionality .
