Unfortunately, we are still working on determining the cause for the steps overflow issue. I think we will have the fix soon.

Hi, Gerd

The update 4.1.65 will be pulled and a fix will be released immediately.

Do you have the power supply and your computer connected to the same wall socket?

As I noted, the most probable cause for the problem is the current flowing through the PoKeys device (between the power supply and PC). It may seem unreasonable, but try rotating the power supply power plug by 180 degree.

Regarding E-stop: is this behaviour sporadic or constant?

What pin did you select as E-stop input?

The disconnect events are usually caused by large current flowing from/to CNC motor drivers to PC via USB. This can be due to improper power supply grounding. What power supply do you use? How do you have the grounds connected?

Can you post a picture of your machine setup?

Hi, Mark

If you have your PoKeys57CNCdb25 connected to your router, disconnect it first. Do you still get the 'connection lost' problems when starting and configuring Mach4?

Hi, Roger

The PoKeys57CNC by itself does not (yet) support the closed-loop control of the spindle speed.

However, one can realize this using the PLC LUA scripting in Mach4 - the spindle speed measurement are done by PoKeys57CNC and sent to Mach4. One can read the current spindle speed and adjust the PWM output of the PoKeys device that drives the spindle (via analog output).
Unfortunately, we don't have any example on how this is done, but will suggest my colleague to prepare an article on our blog (http://blog.poscope.com).

The kernel speed setting of Mach3 does not affect the PoKeys device operation.

Then,  X0.0031 Y0.0031 is one step in X and Y. This may be due to a rounding error in Mach3.

Regarding the inaccurate 'home' position - what are you steps per unit settings? These may result in partial step that can not be executed by the device.

The PoKeys57CNC will not be damaged by wiring drivers in parallel.

Regarding master/slave - PoKeys application is meant for testing and diagnosting only. All Mach3/Mach4 related settings must be configured via Mach3/Mach4 plugin! Both Mach3 and Mach4 support axis slaving.
