Re: RotoCAMM TS-400E

Tidy looking machine - especially for the price!! You'll find out how many hours the spindle has had in Vpanel somewhere.

I'll split the connector and get the wiring - took a photo for someone else on here but seems to be gone. Hopefully once you get that fitted it'll be fully functional :D

Re: RotoCAMM TS-400E

No and yes :D The machine connects to computer via USB. The serial connector was connected to a switch on the machines original housing (missing I presume?) - if the door wasn't closed the machine wouldn't work. So - you've got to short out a few wires on the serial connector in place of a switch. I...

Re: RotoCAMM TS-400E

There's one of your problems then. You'll need a serial plug that fits the expansion socket - 2 pins need connected.

Post a few pics and take it form there. Might be an obvious fix...

Re: RotoCAMM TS-400E

I'm guessing you've rotated the emergency stop button to reset it?

Re: RotoCAMM TS-400E

Here's Vpanel Not sure if the mods allow this attachment though...

With this installed on your PC you'll be able to test the machine.

Re: RotoCAMM TS-400E

It lives again! Literally gave it blood offering and managed to get the fianl piece finished. Worth a very nippy thumb :D Really weird. It could do everything - including outputting a toolpath - but would freeze when trying to set a new home position. Time will tell if this is a one off anomaly...

Re: RotoCAMM TS-400E

Well - the day has finally come… I think the machine is dead :| It mostly works fine but when I try and write a new parameter in VPanel - a new home or Z position for instance - Vpanel just freezes up. Not the computer as tried old laptop too. Will dig out a new USB lead tomorrow but I'm not hopeful...
