MPG controller with a rotary encoder

I want to change the hand wheel from MPG controller with a rotary encoder, but the issue is that the software was limited at 15000 steps and after that, i need to let and push again the side button or change the axis/speed and let me another 15000.

Theoretical these settings of 15000 can be changed from factory menu, but I don’t have the access code for that zone.

Can you help me, or do you have any other solution?

MGP is currently designed is this
After reaching 15000, release the side control switch and press it again to restart the count. If there is no side control switch, you can only switch the gear to clear it.

  1. Hello
    I have a question for the SMC5-5-n-n controller :

    is it possible to connect an external switch for the feedrate?
    does the control have a single block function in automatic modus?

    thanks in advance

  2. Hey,

    I would like to get the latest firmware version from you guys, my current version is: ShaoGe CNC V4.1.0, ID:5587AAEF 665F5F13 75DC86FD 00000003.
    It concerns controller SMC5-5-N-N.
    I am very satisfied with your controller and use it with full satisfaction. Can you also send me the documentation of the new firmware?

  3. SMC4-4-16A16B question.
    Can the i/o ports be controlled thru the g-code cnc program?
    Such as turning on/off a function while in run mode?

  4. Hello, im new on this Community Bit very satisfied with the smc5.5.

    Is it possible, that the Controller moves the axle out of the end Switch by itselfe?

    And can you send me the latest Firmware ?

    Best regards

    • If you point back to the mechanical origin: the axis moves to the origin switch, and when it touches the origin switch, it moves slowly in the reverse direction and leaves the origin switch until the switch is released. If there is a problem with the switch, it stops at the set overrun distance.
      upgrade need give me your serial No.

  5. I’m helping a friend with his CNC that I helped him build. He has been using it a couple years. Wiring the pendant to a plug that goes in the back of the SNC5 was hard to find info on. I made an instruction sheet with photo on the process. I have not tried it because we are wiring the SMC5 but it should be running soon.
