The PxMM can work with data from an external or shared drive. Mounting is the software process in the PxMM that enables it to read and write data to/from a shared drive. If the mounting process fails in the PxMM the following message will appear in the IDE Controller Message Log.

Shared Drive failed to mount. ExitCode: 1, Message:Network configuration: Mount the shared directory gcode to /mount/shared

One common cause in a Windows 10 operating system is that the SMB1 was disabled. To enable it:

Embedded Motion Technology - Frameless  Mounting Considerations

  • The benefits of Improved System Performance, Reduced Maintenance, Smaller Mechanical Footprint, Higher System Efficiency are understood
  • Customer still has a key question in mind …  
  • I like the frameless design concept but how do I mount the motor components into my machine?

Mechanical Mounting Considerations

  • Customer’s own bearings
  • Customer’s shafting / drivetrain

After the motor and winding designation have been selected, the motor design should be incorporated in the layout phase of the mechanical design. A frameless brushless type motor may be either totally frameless, framed with an armature adapter machined to fit the customer’s existing shaft, or partially housed with a mounting flange or tabs for mounting the stator. 

Does Kollmorgen have best mounting practices for the KBM and TBM frameless motors? This would be good information to put on this site.
