Hi newbie

Welcome to MASSO.
Is there something specific you are looking for?
If so let us know and I can point you to it.

There is no specific CTRL key on the keyboard and if you are running version 4.01 some functions are not available because of this.
This has been fixed in the new beta software 4.02.77b
There is still no CTRL key but there is a key for everything you will need.

Cheers Peter

Good afternoon I was surfacing spoil board and had to hit estop because some dummie left a screw in it . When I restarted it my spindal it will only run at low speed. I am running the Beta version, and i cannot very vfd. [chinesse 2.2 kw special] I changed setting on vfd and can very speed manually . So is masso not talking to vfd or is the vfd not listening Where should i test for voltage 0-10 form masso or form vfd

Hi Newbie

Could you provide more information please.
  • What version Bata are you using 4.02.77b or the current beta version 4.02.91b?
  • How did you try to restart the program after the Estop? Jump to line or rewind and start from the beginning?
  • Are you saying that if you go back to basics and type10000 into the box next to the [Spindle CW] button and then press [Spindle CW] button your spindle will not run at 10000? If you then type 5000 into the box and press [Spindle CW] button again the spindle speed does not change? See the video below for more info
  • Did it all work properly before?
  • When it is running slowly what RPM is it showing on the F2 screen?
I am just trying to figure out if there is a software bug and if so how to reproduce it.

In answer to your question about testing the voltage just measure the voltage between Spindle control pin 1 and the MASSO GND. Just use one of the black terminals. At maximum speed you should see 10 volts and at half speed 5 volts etc. The scale is linear.
Cheers Peter

Good day Peter ; I am running betta 4.02.77b. After the estop I pushed spindle cw then cycle start I was running at 18000 rpm ,after restart it ran at about 12000 but it finished the job.I did not check rpm on screen , now there is no response. I checked voltage at masso there is no change between off and on both are reading milli volts . I unpluged vfd from masso made no difference in voltage.Yes it was working as it should before this incident. Please have a good day;

Hi newbie,

After pressing Estop the spindle speed is cancelled.
Pressing [Spindle CW] without issuing a new spindle speed will only output a few milli-volts.
This is not the correct way to restart after an Estop.
Either rewind and start from the beginning or use Jump to line.

I do not understand why you cannot get the spindle to run now.
Just to confirm that when you are testing the voltage on Spindle pin 1 you are issuing a speed command either in MDI S18000 or by entering speed 18000 in the box as shown in the video above before pushing the [Spindle CW] button. If you do not issue a speed command the speed will be 0 and the reading you get will be in the mV range.

This may help with understanding how to use the jump to line feature.
In the video it shows how to save the work offsets but that is now automatic so ignore that part.
If you have a power cut in the middle of cutting just home and the jump to line will show the last line that was machined.
Cheers Peter
