Is there a way for LB to tell me info about my controller??? What model /version etc??
Have you had a chance to have a look at ‘Edit’→’Get Controller Info’?
@Rick I assume that option only available for DSP controllers?
I have not ?? what and where?
found it thanks!!!
It does not tell me what it is. I need to replace the one in this machine. I just do not which one to purchase. I will head to cloud ray and maybe get guidance.
Thanks for your suggestion
There should be some markings / sticker on the control unit itself. Post some pictures and we may be able to help identify the model number.
You should also see the model we think you are connected to at the bottom-center of LightBurn screen when connected.
There are no markings. I contacted the vender and no help there either… I contacted Light objects … no clue or help. I went to Cloud Ray and with their help I ordered a 644 2s I just got an email saying it has shipped and will arrive TODAY!!! OMG!!
Thanks everyone for help with this issue.
There is NO markings … We assumed it was a Ruida years ago. I went ahead and purchased a Trocen controller from light objects in Sacremento. I have it installed and wired up. I looked like 1 to 1 wiring where the 644 was not. (also could not find 644 tec support from CloudRay) Now I need their help to get it going with the head in the correct position etc. I will call them monday and set up a session @ 1$ a min for their services, …
After days of foolin with this Trocen controller and THEIR not so good support @ $1 a minuet I sent it back and ordered the Rudia 6442 again. Due Wed. The wiring for the trocen was not correct for the machine I have. NOT a good experience …
Finally figured out that the controller in this Morn Laser Engraver is/was a RDCL320 A. A Ruida.
I installed a 6442 again and got the machine to work somewhat. It does NOT go home correctly. If I do not stop it, it will crash into the limit switches and make noise.
With power off I place the head in the center of the machine. Power on, then the head takes off towards home (back Right), touch X limit then Y limit with a piece of metal (limit light comes on) and the head will stop and act like it has found home. I can move x & y in the correct directions with the keyboard. The Control panel shows X 0000, Y 0000. I have replaced the metal trigger piece on the head with others to try, NO JOY.
If it work manually WHY will in not work with the head?
I have been in contact with Cloud Ray back in forth emails etc.
They are on holiday now, so I am on hold 'till they get back.
Go through this:
Setting up a Ruida controller from scratch takes a little bit of time, but it’s not horrible.
OZ I did all those adjustments again. Using X only None of the limit polarity & Direction Polarity changes helped, and even made things worse. After all four changes, I put it back to where it was before the limit changes adjustments. I am wondering if the 6442 is compatible with this machine? Maybe the solution is purchasing a RDLC 320, like the one that was in this machine. I have been down for over a month now.
This is the latest: Power on: The head goes towards home & CRASHES and keeps trying to set the limit switches … ESC stops the crashing, the keyboard works, and I can move X & Y ok. Power off. Move the head to center of machine. Power On: head takes off for home, I trip the X first then the Y limit switches with a screwdriver. The machine thinks it is home now. X=0000 Y=0000 I made a 1-inch test sq in LB hit frame and head goes there. I did NOT turn on the laser. The machine thinks it found home …
So that’s it for now I am waiting to hear back from Cloud Ray, and “MORN” they finally reached out after only a month…
Thanks for your suggestions
Hope all is well …
