MPG Pedant on 7i43 was created by mane
Now i want to hook up a pedant with XYZ and increments 0,01 / 0,1 / 1.
In a first step i want to add the encoder wheel to my configuration.
I checked the documentation, there is an example with 2nd parallel port card and C22 interface card. But with my 7i43 i have enough GPIO.

link MPG Pedant example

question i these sections:
# The inputs to the mux4 component
net scale1 mux4.0.sel0 <= parport.1.pin-09-in
net scale2 mux4.0.sel1 <= parport.1.pin-10-in


# The MPG inputs
net mpg-a encoder.0.phase-A <= parport.1.pin-02-in
net mpg-b encoder.0.phase-B <= parport.1.pin-03-in


I need the correct pins based on my config and what pins i have to add here?

Many thanks in advance.
Manfred

Which firmware are you using on the 7i43?
You might well have some encoder counters available.

From my hal setup:
loadrt hm2_7i43 ioaddr=0x378 ioaddr_hi=0 epp_wide=1 config="firmware=hm2/7i43-4/SVST4_4.BIT num_encoders=1 num_pwmgens=0 num_stepgens=3"

I guess that the 1 encoder you currently have enabled is for the spindle?

So change num_encoders to 2, to create one for the MPG.
Then look at the dmesg output after LinuxCNC has started to work out which pins it ends up using.

You don't need an encoder HAL component, you have encdoder counters in the FPGA, and you don't need to "net" the A and B phases either. Just connect hm2_7i43.0.encoder.1.counts to the jog counts inputs.

No, at the moment spindle is in manual mode. Only a motor switch and a small gearbox.
I choose one encoder only for the MPG pedant.
I will take a look with dmesg tomorrow. Thanks so far.

Powered the MPG with 5V and connected A and B form MPG to mesa to these pins.
(P4-05): Encoder #0, pin B (Input)
(P4-07): Encoder #0, pin A (Input)
But i guess thats not all. At the moment MPG has no effect on my system. At the moment its only a configuration with no machine behind.

You should see the 7i43.0.encoder.0.counts pin change when you move the mpg (you can see this with Halmeter)

But the counts need to be connected to the axis (and joint, in 2.8) jog inputs in the HAL file. That part will be the same as the parallel port config.

You can ignore the index.

I tried to do as you described in halmeter. 7i43.0.encoder.0.counts pin watched but nothing changed by by rotate the encoder.
Added a pricture of my setup. The encoder is connected to 5V and A and B are connected to connector 4.

Maybe there is something wrong with my cabeling.

Yes, you have your wires connected to P4 pins 9 and 13

A good example of why a picture is a great idea, we would have been chasing this for weeks. :-)

Connecting to the correct pins i see now encoder signals A and B in halscope.
Next i have to connect the inputs.
