Update Mach3 to the latest version first. PoKeys requires it.

Which version of Mach3 and PoKeys software are you using?

First configure the Pulse engine (activation, type, motion parameters) using the PoKeys software - click on 'Save configuration' button in the Pulse engine dialog to send the settings to the device. The motion parameters must be confirmed by pressing enter in the fields (or else the background will be displayed in red color).

Then load the attached file in PoBlocks and send it to the device. First two axes should move in two second intervals, while the third axes should move based on the analog value on the input 41.

There are four PoIL code blocks used - one to start the pulse engine and the others for setting the reference values. To view the code, simply double-click on any of them. The PoIL code reference can be found in the PoIL.pdf document in the PoKeys installation folder.

Hi, James

Yes, you can.

Pulse engine has a long list of options and we haven't released a graphical block to support it. However, it can still be accessed from PoIL code.
Can you give more description on what you want to achieve? We might assist you then.

Matevě,
PoLabs

Check the 'Count' DRO in the Mach3 main window under 'Settings' tab. How does this value increment when the MPG is rotated?

Please export your Mach3 PoKeys plugin settings (there is Import/Export tab in the end) and send me the file to matevz[at}poscope{dot]com

How do you have the MPG configured? Is PoKeys handling the MPG jogging or Mach3 (option 'Let PoKeys handle MPG jogging' in the plugin settings)? Are you using LPT port or PoKeys for pulse generation? What MPG do you have? What is configured for MPG pulses per unit in MPG config (calib) in Mach3?
PoKeys uses current value of the Mach3's step size register.

We just retested both the MPG and LCD and these both work with Mach3+PoKeys57CNC

MPG:
Enable encoder 1 and set the pins 1 and 2 as A and B signals, then map it to DRO 101. You can check the MPG Count DRO on the 'Settings' page of Mach3 and it will change with you moving the encoder. Now, Mach3 knows about the motion, it's up to Mach3 configuration on how to use it (usually, MPG1 has to be enabled in the Mach3 settings first, jogging mode must be switched to MPG and Alt 1 button must be pressed to select proper axis for the MPG to move). You can save some of this hassle if you enable that the PoKeys handles the jogging as pendant (works only if Pulse engine is used in PoKeys device)

LCD:
Proper power supply is needed for the LCD to work correctly - powering the board via USB does not guarantee the required 5V for the LCD module. It is clearly stated in the manual that USB only power supply can be used for limited testing only.
Pin 18 is used for LCD contrast - PWM on this pin must be activated with a fixed duty cycle (e.g. 10%) and a moderate PWM frequency (let's say 100 us PWM period to produce 10 kHz)
LCD must be configured properly in the Mach3 settings.

Pendant works only if PoKeys is also used as pulse generator.

Pendant switches should be wired and configured in the PoKeys plugin (settings file is available on our webpage under downloads for the PoPendant1 and it can be imported) as described in the 'Pulse engine and Mach3 plugin' manual on page 20.

Can you make sure that you have the following settings the same?

Are you using the pins of the jog wheel for any other function at the same time?
