Hi UGV,

Welcome to MadModder.

Do you have a drawing of how the tools are retained for your ATC? I am interested in doing something similar for an ER32 spindle.

Nice work, ugv!  :thumbup:

I have just traced out the wiring of the keypad matrix of the controller:


If you need a graphic of the controller front for any reason, I have made the following one:

You can use it for anything you want, I release the above image into the public domain, however, credit is always appreciated.

Thanks UGV,

What diameter balls are you using and what is the force exerted by the spring?

I have just discovered the root of all evil.

Doesn't that tab control look suspiciously similar...

Our nice controller is based off this reference design:
http://nuvoton.mcuzone.com/N32905.html
This can actually be bought from AliExpress. However, I am currently not able to spend ~80€ on one of these (30€ shipping to Germany).
They include the holy grail, the DVD with source code to a lot of things we don't have yet.  :bow:
Unfortunately not to the CNC functions, but to all OS functions, but I am starting to grasp how the CNC functions work.
Having this kit would also enable us to modify the boot screen. We could also use a more modern user interface such as Qt Embedded and we could finally upgrade the system.
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/N32905-NUVOTON-ARM926-core-based-Soc-with-on-chip-32MB-DDR-MDK905-EK-T43-USB-LCDC/1808063633.html
Seems like the Chinese like to copy from each other. The above package is probably what they used initially for developing our beloved CNC controller.
The above MCUZone site shows well what the technical specifications of the processor are.

I'll keep you all updated.

Hi Merlin!
Fortunately, this contains so many things I have been missing and can't get to work just yet. Like drivers for the keypad, drivers for SPI, I2C and all the communication interfaces it uses to connect to the motor controller chip (huge FPGA, no documentation at all). This kit also contains all the NDA proteted code it seems and a proper datasheet. It also contains the kernel and tools to reprogram our board with a different splashscreen and kernel.
So yes, the most useful thing we could do.

Thank you so much!  :beer:
But I can't accept this offer. It's too much I think.

As we are all taking the benefit from Benedikt's Great work, i could suggest that all of us we can collect the requested sum and send to him, so we all can moving forward with the project...
My 2 cents, lets see what's the thought of the other members...

:mmr:

That is really generous from you, johnsattuk and Merlin  :beer:
How about dividing the price up. I would be paying 40€ and anyone who likes to donate can donate maybe 15€/$.
I am really thankful for helping me out. That will help a lot to advance this project! :)
The least I can do is give you credit on a Thank You screen, as soon as we have a decent user interface built.
However I would still like to add, I can't guarantee that I can make it work. I am investing good parts of my spare time to keep this project going but I can't promise that I can make it work ultimately. There is still a good bit of work left.

A project is a project,  can work or not,  no one know,  but it worth try,  otherwise we don't have any chance to do it,  so I am perfectly happy to give my contribution.....  In all case even just having our personalized splash screen will worth for me!

Benedikt has a paypal account and I think maybe this would be a good way to pay for that Dev tool, comments ?

Hello, in the DDcsv1, a very low beep sounds when the limit switch is activated, there would be some way to amplify that beep.
