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

    • 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.

  10. Hello, who has experience with tool radius correction G41/G42. In my case this works fine up to a 180 degree arc. When you make an arc larger than 180 degrees, it goes wrong. The tool moves half the diameter, so ignore G41/G42. When I program a circle of 2x 180 degrees with the arc center shifted 0.01mm it works fine. So on the half arc a rectilinear displacement of 0.01mm. This seems to me to be a bug in the software. Please share your experiences! Greetings Dick Veldhuis
