I’m going to build a power feed(s) for a milling machine and I need to control it both in jog and constant speed modes, both in forward and reverse. I see that the T249 can be controlled via 1 quad encoder connected to 5V, TX and RX pins, but only in speed OR position modes. It seems that there were additional pins that could be set to an encoder (now I can’t find them in the manual) and I was hoping that I could control one encoder at AX, TX for position mode and another at speed mode connected to the mystery pins that are now lost to me. If not, can I control position with an encoder at AX, TX and speed with a potentiometer connected to the SDA/AN pin. I seem to feel the need to control the 5V and switch it from encoder to the other encoder/potentiometer to keep them from accidental simultaneous operation or error.
Please tell me that this is possible because it would save me a ton of chasing my tail to find something else that might work. Yes I know there’s got to be an Android solution but I’m 65 and it’s been 20 years since I’ve done any programming.
Thanks in advance for telling me that it can easily be accomplished with the Tic. If not, curses! B Smith
