2FootSWInput port of foot switch. The connection method is: when the
pedal is stepped down, the low-level signal will be inputted to
this port; when the pedal is released, the port will be
disconnected or the high-level signal can be inputted to this
port; when the stepped-down pedal is held for not less than
100 ms, if the machine lies idle, it can be started for work; if
the machine is in the working state, the work will be
suspended; of the machine is in the suspension, the work will
be restarted, that is to say, the function of the pedal switch is
the same as that of the “Start/Pause” key. If the interval time
to the first stepping-down of the pedal should be less than
100ms when the pedal is stepped down once again, the
second stepping-down of the pedal will be considered invalid
by the controller.
3DrProcInput from protective port. If the machine needs to be
protected in the special state (such as door open protection),
the protective signal can be inputted from this pin. This pin
can be enabled and prohibited. This signal is not inquired by
the controller if this pin is prohibited; if this pin is enabled,
when the input is high-leveled or this input port is suspended,
the machine will be protected, the work suspended and the
laser closed.
4ShotInput for manual laser on/off. Low level is to open laser and
high level or no-connection is to close laser.

6Puxy5V Power positive (output)

The limit polarity is optional, that is to say, when the motion axis reaches the limit position, it will trigger a low-level signal so as to make the corresponding LED (under the cover) light; when the motion axis leaves the limit position, it will trigger a high-level signal or disconnect the limit signal so as to make the limit indicator go out, but when it leaves the limit, the corresponding indicator will light and the limit polarity become positive. The mistaken setting of limit polarity will result that the limit can’t be detected when the system is reset so as to lead to the collision of axis.

The pin definitions of Z/U axis limit input CN3 are the same as CN4.

X/Y/Z/U-axis limit inputs are compatible to 5V/12V/24V logic level inputs.

The polarity of directional signal for driver pulse signal can be set. Where a certain axis is reset, it will move to the opposite direction of machine origin, which means the polarity of directional signal for this axis is not correct. In such a case, the connection between this axis and the motor driver can be broken first (otherwise the controller cannot be detected to the limit so as to lead to the collision of this axis), and then such a polarity can be corrected after this axis is reset completely. Upon the correction, the reset key can be pressed against to reset the controller.

And, the pulse signal can be falling edge valid or rising edge valid. The default setting is falling edge valid.

Chapter 6 Interface Examples of Step-servo Motor Driver

Brief Introduction

The input signal end of step-servo motor driver employs the opto-isolator technology. For the step pulse signal, some isolate the side OC diode from cutoff to conduction (e.g. the valid falling edge of pulse signal inputted from the diode minus end) and some do so from conduction to cutoff (e.g. the valid rising edge of pulse signal inputted from the diode minus end).

When it is indicated whether the pulse signal of motor driver is the valid rising edge or the valid falling edge, it will be subject to the pulse signal inputted from the minus end of side OC diode.

Some input signals of motor driver are independent and some are internally of common anode, so some have 4 external leading-out wires and some 3 wires (only the pulse and directional signals are counted) as shown in Figure 6.1-1 and 6.1-2.

RDC644XG Controller has four groups of 3-wires motion driver interface, each interface has one direction signal, one pulse signal, and one 5V positive output, the direction signal and the pulse signal are all OC output.

RDC644XG controller must be common anode with the motor driver. The polarity of the direction signal can be changed in the factory parameters, and the valid edge of the pulse signal can also be changed.

Chapter 9 Manufacturer/User Parameters Details

Manufacturer Parameters

(1)Motor parameters X/Y/Z/U-axis parameters

Direction Polarity: Modification of direction polarity can move the motor to the opposite direction. The modification purpose can move this axle to the origin on resetting. If this axle moves far from the origin on resetting, it means the direction polarity of this axle is wrong in setting and should be modified.

Spacing/limit Polarity: it is used to set the high and low level mode of spacing signal. When the motion axle arrives at the spacing position and input a low-level signal to the controller, the spacing polarity at this time should be set to be minus.

Key Polarity: it is used to control the movement direction of the axle that is moved through manual operation of the keys. After the direction polarity is correctly set, if you press the directional keys on the operating panel, this axle will move to the opposite direction. In such a case the polarity of keys should be modified.

Control Mode: Double-pulse or direction + single pulse are optional; in general, direction + single pulse is selected.

Hard-spacing Protection: it is used for whether the hard-spacing protection of this axle is enabled.

Reset Enable: if the machine is provided with this axle, its “Reset Enable” should be opened; if no, its “Reset Enable” should be prohibited.

Motor Stepping: it means the impulse equivalent, the absolute distance by the corresponding motion axle when a pulse is delivered to the motor. Prior to the correct setting of this value, a larger rectangle can be cut with the machine (the larger the figure is, the smaller the difference is). The motor stepping can automatically be calculated according to the figure length and measuring length.

Takeoff Speed: it means the speed of the motion axle in direct start from the idle condition. If this value is excessively large, it will make the motor lose steps, jar and even squeak; if small, it will reduce the running speed of the whole figure. If the inertia of the motion axle is larger (the axle is heavier), you can set a smaller takeoff speed; if smaller (the axle is lighter), and you can increase the takeoff speed. For

example, the typical value is 5~30mm/s.

Maximum Speed: it means the maximum limit of motion speed that this axis can bear. This parameter has something to do with the driving force of motor, the inertia of motion axle and its drive ratio. For example, the typical value is 200~500mm/s.

Maximum Acceleration: it means the maximum acceleration of the motion axis in accelerated or decelerated motion. If the acceleration is set too large, it will make the motor lose steps, jar and even squeak; if too small, it will cause the reduction of acceleration so as to reduce the running speed of the whole figure. For the axis with larger inertia, such as Y axis corresponding to the beam, its typical setting range is 800~3000mm/s2; for the axis with smaller inertia, such as X axis corresponding to the car, its typical setting range is 8000~20000mm/s2.

Scope: it means the farthest distance that the motion axle can move, which is determined in accordance with the actual condition of the machine.

Key Takeoff Speed: it means the starting speed to move the axis by way of the keys on the keyboard, which can’t be higher than the takeoff speed.

Key Acceleration: it means the acceleration to move this axis by way of the keys on the keyboard, which can’t be higher than the maximum acceleration of this axis.

Key Reverse: to control the motion direction when move the axis by pressing key manually. When set the direction polarity parameters correctly, if press the direction key on the panel, the axis will move to the reverse direction, so enable this item.

  1. Laser parameters

Laser Tube Configuration: single laser and double lasers are available for option and set in accordance with the laser-tube quantity provided by the manufacturer.

Laser Type: glass tube, RF laser (not need pre-ignition pulse) and RF laser (need pre-ignition pulse) are available for option.

Laser Attenuation Quotiety

Laser Tube Enable: when there are double laser tubes, user can enable laser 1 and laser 2 respectively.

Maximum Power Minimum Power

Laser PWM Frequency Pre-burning Frequency

Pre-burning Pulse width: when the laser is RF laser and need pre-burning pulse, you can configure the features of pre-burning pulse by pre-burning frequency and pre-burning pulse width.

Water protection enables: When the water protection enabled, the controller must connect the wiring, otherwise the machine will not emit laser. If disable, no need to connect the water protect wiring, controller will not test.

Laser PWM Frequency is used to set the pulse frequency of control signal used by the laser, in general, glass tube is about 20KHZ, RF laser is about 5KHZ; the maximum/minimum power (%) is used to set the limit power of the laser, that is to say, during the operation, the maximum power set by the user which can’t be higher than the maximum power and the minimum power set by the user which no less than the minimum power. When the laser power is attenuated after using for a time, then can set the laser power by the attenuation quotiety.

Prompt

If it is only provided with the single laser, it will show the one-path parameter.

  1. Other Manufacturer Parameters Machine Configuration

Machine Type: In most cases, the general engraving machine should be selected and other types used for specific purposes.

Feeding Mode: single-way mode and two-way mode for optional. If it is single-way feeding, it is unnecessary to check the coordinates, feeding can be conducted in the single-way mode; if it is two-way feeding, the system will check the maximum and minimum coordinates. The odd sequence means feeding should be done to one direction and the even sequence means feeding done to the other direction. The initial direction for the first time can be changed through setting the directional polarity or modifying the plus and minus values of the feeding length. This parameter is valid only when the “Z axes function” is configured to “Drive for Feeding axes”.

Power-Off-Restart Delay: it can be set to be 0~3000ms. After the electricity grid power-off, the power supply of the system will be not dropped to 0V at once. There is a delay during the time. The delay value set here should basically consistent with the actual off-delay value. If the deviation of set value is larger, on the de-energizing for continuous engraving, either the figure processed for the second time is not closed with that before the cutoff, or it is coincided with that too much.

Transmission Mode: generally choose “Belt Stepping Type”, the control algorithm will be changed a little when other types are selected.

RDC644XG (Ruida) Controller User Manual

Prompt

After modified the configuration parameters in the manufacturer parameters, such as directional polarity, control mode, laser type and laser PWM frequency, the system should be reset. Such a modification can function upon

the resetting of the system.

  1. Enable Parameters

Cover Opening Protection: If enabled this item, the controller must connect the protection wiring, otherwise, the machine will not work.

Enable the blower: if use Wind signal of output port to control the blower switch as layers, you must enable this item, otherwise, the Wind signal outputs other signal.

RDC644XG (Ruida) Controller User Manual

Prompt

The Enable Parameters are to enable or disable the above functions. If the machine is provided with the parameters for the single-laser in the manufacturer parameters, the display entry of enabling parameters will be

changed accordingly.

User Parameters

Cutting Parameters (Only affect cutting methods)

Idle Move Speed: this parameter decides the highest speed of all non-lighting lines for the machine in the movement process.

Idle Move Acceleration: it means the highest acceleration of all non-lighting lines. Idle stroke speed and idle stroke acceleration can be set higher to reduce the working time of the whole figure, but if they are

set too high, it may cause the jarring of track, so comprehensive consideration should be given to the setting.

Turning Speed: the turning speed at closed-angle corner, the lowest speed in the whole cutting process. Turning Acceleration: the acceleration speed at the closed-angle corner when cutting. If the two speeds are set too large, vibration will be happened when turning; if set too low, it will influence the cutting speed.

Cutting Acceleration: it means the highest acceleration value in the whole cutting process.

Acceleration Mode: it is divided into T acceleration and S acceleration. T accelerate will quicken the whole cutting process, but it will result in that its cutting effect is inferior to that of S acceleration.

One Key Setting: This is one recommended cutting parameters settings button; it is not a parameter, there are several groups of parameters under this button, which is convenient for selection.

  1. Scanning Parameters (Only affect scanning mode) X- axis Starting Speed

Y- axis Starting Speed X- axis Acceleration Y- axis Acceleration

The above four parameters are used to set the starting speed and acceleration of two axles when scanning. The higher the two speeds are, the quicker the scanning is.

Scanning Line-feed Speed: this parameter is specially used to control the highest speed at which that the previous line vertically moves to the next line in the scanning mode. If the space between lines is larger during the scanning or if the distance of each block is larger during the scanning and deblocking of figure, it is necessary to position each line or block accurately. In such a case the speed of scanning line-feed can be set as a lower value.

Scanning Mode: it is divided into general mode and special mode for option. If special mode is used, the laser power should be increased. The smaller the speckle percentage is, the more the laser power reduces. The laser power to set should be larger in order to reach the same scanning depth. The purpose to select the special mode is to make the laser light at high power and short time. On the depth scanning the effect that the bottom is flatter is obtained, but it should be noticeable that if the speckle adjustment is not appropriate, it can achieve this goal. If the high power remains short, the lighting mode will influence the life of the laser. The system will default the selection of general mode.

Spot Size: When the general mode is selected as the scanning mode, this parameter will become

ineffective; when the special mode is selected, this parameter will become effective. The controller will control this parameter among 50%~99%.

RDC644XG (Ruida) Controller User Manual

Prompt

The cutting and scanning parameters can’t exceed the limited ones in the axle

parameters. If so, the setting will become ineffective and the system will automatically cover the parameters with the axis parameters.

  1. Feeding parameters

Before-feeding delay: can be set 0~300s, the upper axis will be moved after the last processing finished and delay this item. It is convenient for the user feeding and select during the delay.

After-feeding delay: settable at 0~9.9s. It can facilitate the feeding device’s delaying vibrated after moving to the correct position and waiting for the 2nd work after the feeding axle stands still completely.

If feeding line-by-line: if enabled feeding line-by-line function, the virtual array graphics on Y direction will be processed in the same position.

Line-by-line feeding backlash: You can compensate the feeding length due to the inaccuracy for feeding axis moving.

  1. Reset Parameters

Reset Speed: it means the speed of X/Y-axle linkage reset to the origin.

X- axis Startup Reset Y- axis Startup Reset

Z- axis Startup Reset U- axis Startup Reset

You can select “Yes” or “No” in the field of the above four parameters, which is used to confirm whether each axis can be reset on the startup.

  1. Frame Setting

Frame Mode: “Blanked Bordering” means idling to start border preview; “Outputted Border Cutting” can manually cut off the well-processed figure; “4-corner Dotting” means to emit the light at four corner points of the frame to make a point and turn off light. The size and position of this figure can be checked intuitively through the four points. The bordering speed is the speed value set on the keyboard when the system is idle. For light output, its minimum/maximum power is the corresponding value set on the keyboard when the system is idle (The laser power on the 4-corner dotting means the well-set maximum

power).

Margin Distance: It means whether to extend a certain length outside the actual frame of the figure on the preview/cutting of frame.

RDC644XG (Ruida) Controller User Manual

Prompt

If the frame crosses the border, the interface will prompt it. If the Enter key is pressed at this time, the system will cut the border at the maximum/minimum

coordinates first, and then border the figure. This bordering can be given up.

  1. Other User Parameters

Array Mode: Two-way array or one-way array can be selected. Two-way array means the to-and-fro cutting of array in sequence; one-way array means the cutting of array from one direction to another. On selecting one-way array, the elements of each array are the same in action mode and completely uniform in action fluency, which takes a little more time than two-way array. Two-way array is the default option.

Back Position: The origin (the relative origin) and the machine’s absolute origin can be selected. This parameter decides the parking position of laser head after each work.

Focus Setting: it means the distance from the focal point of laser head lens to Z-axle origin. When there is no automatic focusing function, this parameter becomes invalid.

Backlash X: The X axes’ backlash, accurate to 1um.

Backlash Y: The Y axes’ backlash, accurate to 1um.
