4 Bit Digital Signal Output Turret

Introduction:

The 4 bit output type turret outputs the turret tool position in a 4 bit binary output as below:

  • Tool 0 signal – Binary 0001
  • Tool 1 signal – Binary 0010
  • Tool 2 signal – Binary 0011
  • Tool 3 signal – Binary 0100
  • and so on…

 

Tool changer logic:

On a tool change request from gcode, MASSO will make the Tool Changer – Output 1 high to turn the tool changer head clockwise till the desired tool has been loaded in position. Once the tool is in position the Tool Changer – Output 1  becomes low and Tool Changer – Output 2  becomes high to turn the tool changer head counterclockwise for 400ms and the tool load process is completed.

 

Step 1:

Wire the Bit 1, Bit 2, Bit 3 & Bit 4 signals to any free inputs from 1 to 32 on MASSO 

 
 

Step 2:

Wire the turrets control electronics CW and CCW signals on any free outputs from 1 to 16 or relay outputs from 1 to 6 on the MASSO

NOTE: Relays can only be directly controlled by MASSO on relay outputs connector
