Thread: Higher end Chinese controllers?
The NEW990TD-b also has a socket on the back for a pendant.
There are about 4 or 5 manuals for these type of controllers and they all differ, often to the model you may have.
Pays to read 2 or 3 page by page and select what matches your controller best. English isn't bad, Dean found a purler there though.John S -
Most of the controllers have a connection for a pendant on them (although I've never paid attention to that bit in the manuals for those that come with a MPG built in...).
I've found another make, Weihong, to add to the list of candidates. They make the original NC-Step, however from first glance their panel systems seem to be a bit more up-market/modular. I'll need to have a read through of their manuals and find some prices to add to the comparison.
There are some brilliant translations though.
Ones that stick in my mind are the Bamboo hat, or mechanical hand tool changer, and weldings. There have been a couple times in the past where I've had to make use of a thesaurus to figure out what they've been trying to say.Avoiding the rubbish customer service from AluminiumWarehouse since July '13.
Best one I ever saw was a reference to a water buffalo ???
Couldn't manage to work that one out though so got the spares list and cross referenced the picture.
It was a hydraulic ramJohn S -

quote from other thread:
After talking with a couple of manufacturers unfortunately that seems to be the case. The typical answer i received was:
Our CNC controllers are using standard G code, the system can be directly copied from the U disk file to the system processing, but can not directly use the U disk online processing.The file size depends on the disk space of our system.The largest disk space of our system is 128M.
Its incredible but the mini controller DDCSV1 beatas them on that front. I will continue its review in the relative thread. Just would like to say here that it reads and executes 10 million line file without a glitch. From start to end. There were some glitches at first and at the end i found that was because i was not using the original pen drive. Once i started doing that, 2 weeks of perfection till today, working 8h per day at least non stop.
If you wonder how i managed to make 10 million line file. Very simple. Milling 1300x1000, trochoidal using 6mm bit. it was not big on size though. So at the end that memory limit could not be such big problem as it seems.
That good enough for you? I don't think a bigger file can make any difference evaluating the controller. I paused it in middle and changed tools, re zeroed and started again/ broken tool/. I stopped it later, remembered the line and when i had time started from line 2 500 000. Controller was busy 15 minutes until it went to that line and started perfectly from there. I don't have doubt the DDCS V1 is a working controller. I know how to square with it the gantry, how to tool change and all that stuff. It homes perfectly and mind that, can be made to repeat 5 times at the sensor and you control the backoff.
I will write all that in detail when i have time, but i am impressed.
Boyan what is the significance of the 233mB file shown in the pic.Thelargest disk space of our system is 128M...Clive
