Is it possible that he meant the ModBus interface?

the guy in this video said in the comments that he wired his proma thc to the MPG port of the controller. 

https://youtu.be/Y8vRkYFuBqo 

Is it possible that he meant the ModBus interface? Please send me a pinout of that port. 

How else could a thc be wired to the controller? You advertised the controller as to be able to control plasma tables. 

This one on the video is 4-axis, it doesn’t support MPG, nor ModBUS. It just connected the quick IO

Only these functions can be connected externally

I am not sure how to connect a “torch on” signal via the output ports. 

I would like to do that with a relay but how do I tell the controller to send that signal via the connected port? Is that done in the G code? 

Could you give me a short example please? 

DC+ connects to power, DC- connects to GND, IN connects to OUTFor example, connect to OUT1
Relay module is set to low effective

M201
G04P3000
M101

This code is to close the relay after 3 seconds.
The output of M10x is virtual high, which can be regarded as the internal electronic switch is turned off, and the output of M20x is low, which can be regarded as the internal electronic switch is turned on and the current flows into the ground (GND). X is the OUT port number

It is better to use relay module instead of relay.
The solid state relay is + connected to power supply, – connected to out port

After stopping the G02 instruction, the milling motor goes through the path twice

I use two SMC5-5-N-N controllers. For both controllers, I find that after stopping the G02 instruction, the milling motor (with the M05 instruction) goes through the path twice. Delete row M05 to cut the circle once. This is true even if you have M04 or M101 instead of M05.
What could be the problem and the solution?

After pausing, it’s best to select the line before the breakpoint line, the controller can’t know exactly where you paused

what post processor can i use with smc5 – 5-N-N

what post processor can i use with smc5 – 5-N-N
In fusin 360cad cam
After wiring a two motor y gantry in parallel driver and motor with single signal, is there any way to wire two limit switches to auto square y axes with x axes?

Mach3 post-processing can be selected in fusion 360

Double Y-axis cannot be automatically balanced, unless you add a circuit to identify it
If it is just a limit, you can make 2 limit switches in series or parallel

SMC5-5-5-N-N controller set slave the A axis to Y axis

I just received my smc5-5-5-n-n controller. I cannot find The settings to be able to slave the A axis to the Y axis. My CNC machine has 2 stepper Motors on the Y axis typically you slave the A axis to the Y axis. How do you solve this problem?

There is no such function, but
Can connect two axis drive signals in parallel, or use an expansion board

SMC5-5 controller ATC toolchanger spindle

I have a question about your SMC5-5 controller. Do you know if it can be used for an ATC toolchanger spindle? It’s important that we can program it to do toolchanges.We will be using ATC spindles for our machnes, like this:  https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32582277189.html

But we are not sure if your controller can work with tool-changers, and how it is programmed. Can you please tell us if this controller has the posibility for programming the toolchanger?

Need to use AutoGM function to write the corresponding GM code,see here. https://www.shaogecnc.com/smc5-5-n-n/#G_codes_supported_by_AutoGM

what software I can use for smc controller

Commonly used CAM software can be used, as long as you pay attention, not all G codes are supported, POWERMILL ARTCAM UG, etc.
