On to next project. ATC carasel type.

Can I use the carasel component for this machine? It has 21 pockets. IT has a weird encoder that gives pulses for each pocket. I put an index on it at pocket 1.

From what I saw the component can only have 8 pockets?

LOL, sorry but i had to....







Carousel!
That should work, quite easily but i am not sure where you got the 8 tool limit.
I am sure i used carousel comp for a 16 pocket tool changer and it worked perfectly.
Attached is a config that was used while testing the functionality of the tool changer, will try to upload the end result whenever i can.

AH, that's good to know. I quickly glanced at the comp docs and read 10, 10,8, anyway I assumed 8.

Thanks for the configs.

The limit of 8 mentioned in the documents is saying that you can only have 8 carousel components, not 8 pockets.

I went back and read it more carefully.

I think I will do this is python also. After the last one I did, this should be a piece of cake.

Thanks,

Bob

I have used carousel component on a 30 pocket tool changer and I would never use anything else for this type of thing. Truly a very helpful piece of work. Thanks to andypugh.

The one that comes with the standard install is not the latest version of I recall correctly. You may need to download the latest version and install using halcompile.

I want to try to slow down the carousel before stopping:

pin out bit motor-slow

case 2: // moving
if ((abs(current_position - pocket_number) > 1) && enable) return;
motor_slow = 1;
if ((current_position != pocket_number) && enable) return;
motor_fwd = 0;
motor_rev = 0;
motor_slow = 0;
state = 3;
active = 0;
if (enable) ready = 1;

have not tried on the machine)
