I tried setting latch-enable to true and moving the axis and it goes false when the axis moves like it should.

When i try to home with home index on the axis movis to the + at search velocity until it hits the home switch then goes - at the latch velocity but never stops. also the latch enable pin never turns true.

Thanks

Did you connect the index pin from the encoder to the index enable for each axis?

ie... for the Y axis
net y-index-enable hm2_[HOSTMOT2](BOARD).0.encoder.01.index-enable <=> axis.1.index-enable

Thanks guys they all work now.

Any one have an idea on the rotary table clamp?

Thanks

I vaguely recall a "Locking rotary" patch.
git.linuxcnc.org/gitweb?p=emc2.git;a=com...9c2539426e3678504514
Which seems to indicate an undocumented INI file setting.
And that there should be axis.N.is-locked pins, for example.
I don't have access to an EMC2 machine at the moment, so can't say if this is merely a documentation problem, or if the pins don't exist.

Actually it is in 2.5 and the docs will reflect that in a few moments...

Wait....

I have not read through the whole thread - What kind of rotary table do you have and what are you hoping to do with it?

The 'locking rotary' setup within emc will only allow you to 'index' the rotary axis. (it will not allow you to do multi axis machining with the rotory axis involved)


Otherwise - you might just want to make the lock an m-code. say m100 and m101 and then you can unlock/lock it whenever you want.

The rotary is a Nikken CNC-200.

I only want the lock for an option when doing roughing or off center drilling. So the locking rotary in EMC won't work.

I haven't read up on creating custom m codes but what all can they control?
It will have to have a check built in to check that the axis is clamped before machining and unclamped before moving.
Also it should disable axis movement when clamped.

M1xx can set just about any hal pin as well as run any executable file like python and bash etc. So what you want to do is well within the realm of the M1xx. I use M1xx to open and close the collet closer on my CHNC and you just reminded me I need to add to not allow that to open if the spindle is turning...
