I have a Ruida 6445 controller on my machine that I recently retrofitted. I am getting it dialed in pretty good. I decided to setup my “Y” axis under both the Y axis and the U axis parameters. My plan is to use a switch to change both step and direction signals between the Y and rotary axes. This would be I think far safer then to swap motor power leads whilst the amplifiers are under power.
So what I was actually wondering was are their any parameters or information getting written to the controller when the rotary option is turned on? Or would it be possible to write to both the Y and the U parameters when this option is turned on? I would actually like to store parameters for the rotary under the U axis and get those moved to the Y axis when enabled. At this point I could jog the actual Y axis manually and my limitation of the rotary would not be limited to the Y axis length.
