  • No DCC

    Help!
    I was using a video camera on my B & S Excel UHA last week. I had turned off all Probe electronics to make it work.

    Now, after reinstalling the PH10, machine will not do anything in DCC, either probe cal or program, no matter if DCC is turned on, it prompts for manual points.

    What am I missing?

    Using old 3.2063 version.

    Did you change the jog box to step mode ?

      Are you using an iterative alignment? Depending how you created the program it may prompt you to take you manual alignment hits even if the machine is in DCC.

      This is only time ive seen PCDMIS do something like that though.

      Sorry Im not much help.

        If you don't have a red light on the PH10, the controller thinks the probe is touching something and it will not move. Have you turned the power back onto your probe head controller?

          ??

          All indications are normal. Not in step mode, probe light is on. No iterative alignments. Program looks normal, probe qualifies fine, just won't run DCC.

          Even in DCC mode, wants manual points.

          Maybe something tripped in .ini file?

            It is apparently still reading as if the probe DCC is off. You must have a cable still loose or hooked back up incorrectly. Either that or you may need to restart your computer and controller for your CMM. I would unplug them and let them sit for about 5 minutes and then give it a try. Good luck

              This now does not seem to be a probe problem. I can program a feature, with DCC mode on, and it does not recognize that DCC is on. The program looks fine, but if I try to execute any DCC feature, it prompts for manual hits.

              In DCC mode, it only allows me the option for a manual TTP scan.

              The probe appears to be working fine...manually.

              Way out of tech support range in this shop...now in crisis mode.

                If you had unplugged any cables I would definitely go back and check connections. Make sure they are secure and in the correct location. I seem to remember someone having a similar problem some time ago. It turned out they had plugged a cable back into the wrong port.

                  DCC and Manual can be toggled anywhere in the prg. Did you check that there is not a command to go manual at some point shortly after your DCC command? Hit Alt + F3, will bring up a search and do a search for manual. If you have hardware problems you should get something different than a prompt to measure manually.

                    Solved

                    I ran a system restore on windows, and things are working now.

                    Wierd, but good.

                      I think perhaps your Max Speed setting had somehow been set to 0.

                      Out of interest, what video camera system are you refering to?

                        It is a RAM optical camera.

                        I had some difficulty, perhaps due to unfamiliarity, in getting PC-DMIS to accept jog box triggered points. It was very slow. The mouse pointer had to be in the graphics window. I sometimes had to press "end" more than once.
