Rotary Jog Control (Manual pulse generator)

Mach 3 Setup details.

Using your rotary encoder as a jog control through your Mach3 software

Your MPG will need a +5Vdc power supply to power it, it will also need 2 x spare pins on your breakout board to connect the A and B phases of the rotary encoder.

In the example described here we assume you have a suitable power supply inside your CNC machine control box. If your Control box is from Rhonmac-cnc it has a +5Vdc supply readily available.

We are using pin number 10 for phase A and pin number 11 for phase B for this example.

Find a suitable mounting point for your encoder on your controller enclosure and mount using the 3 studs, nuts and washes at the rear of the encoder.

Step 1

Configure Ports and Pins.

Select the ports and pins dialog box,

 

Select the encoders/MPG tab.

Enable MPG#1 by clicking the check box, the red cross turns into a green tick, enter the information in the other check boxes as highlighted below. Once completed click apply to enable the change in settings.

Double check your settings.

Step 2

Wire up phase A and B.

Earlier we said we were going to use pin number 10 for phase A and pin number 11 for phase B. These wire up to the breakout board if using a Rhonmac-cnc breakout board No Rm2-25DB, you can wire directly to the screw terminals number 10 for phase A and number 11 for phase B. wire directly to the rotary encoder.

Use a 2 way bulkhead socket and plug for safe wiring through the control box enclosure.  

RM 2-25DB Breakout Board

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3

Connect the ground and +5Vdc supply.

Connect the power Ground (0V) to any of the No 25 pins on the breakout board, there are plenty on the Rm2-25DB breakout board.

Connect the power lead to the +5Vdc power supply.

Time to test everything out. Check out your Mach3 settings and then your wiring if all is ok then switch on.

Assuming all is ok then select the axis you are going to move with the encoder and try it, check the dial movement against the Mach3 DRO to check the actual axis movement for each detent moved on the encoder dial. If the actual movement is not what you have expected experiment with the Counts /unit setting in the Encoder/MPG settings.
