smc4/smc5 supports inches?

No unit,
Depends on what unit the pulse equivalent is calculated in,If your program uses inches as the unit, the displayed result is inches, even though the interface displays cm

      • Can this controller be used to control Servo motors also? I bought a SMC5 controller and have it installed, but cannot figure out how to control my servo motors. Where do I send the encoder signal? I will buy more controllers if I can figure out this problem.

      • My SMC5-5-N-N controller will not reset when I press the round control knob or the bottom left corner button with the X and 4 dots.
        The square border around the word RESET turns green but the word RESET stays red and continues to flash.
        Because it won’t reset I can’t make it do anything.
        Is there a way to resolve this problem?
        Thank You for the help

            Sorry to take so long to respond.
            It has been a long recovery.
            The controller looks to be of high quality but
            I need to be able to convert from metric to inch.
            Please email me the firmware to convert from metric to inches or explain what I need to do to change this.
            Thank you for your help

  2. Is there a update to have the controller run in inches rather than metric?
    I have a 2021 version offline controller.

  3. Hi!

    My jog knob do not respond when I turn it. It has no effect.

    Pressing the knob work well and act as the “OK” button.

  11. Hello,

    Thanks for the updated software.
    We can’t get a response from the backlash value
    please let us know what matters need attention.
    Is the backlash unit in mm?
    Do I need to turn it off and on after typing a value?
    Does backlash work in mpg?

    thanks for your reply

    • backlash value unit is the same as pulse equivalent, pulse equivalent is calculated by MM, it also uses mm
      backlash value can only be limited in the G-code
