The motor enable signal (if used) must be mapped to dedicated motor enable signals (on the motor connectors) or the general purpose PoKeys pins. We will update the plugin to allow the use of the relay outputs or open-collector outputs also.

The capability of USB connection depends heavily on your computer's hardware. Some manufacturers provide sub-par USB controller drivers that may deliver full speed in transfer speeds, but be very slow to exchange the data both ways (to and from the device). PoKeys devices depend on constant exchange of information between the PC application and the device - if the system and drivers can't cope with it, the PoKeys device will not be able to fully reconstruct the motion data received from Mach.
There is a troubleshooting option in the PoKeys configuration application that tests for operational speed and it is planned that such a test to be incorporated into the Mach4 plugin directly.
If you experience problems with slow USB connection, please inform PoLabs support about it and provide information on your system information (motherboard type, operating system version etc.).

The kbd48CNC MUST be connected to the PoKeys device with the cable originally provided. It should not be extended!

What are you referring to regarding that not all actions work? Mach3 or Mach4? In Mach3 you are free to remap signals on your own in the 'Mapping' section of the plugin settings. In Mach4, the keyboard uses the default set of actions and since not all are supported by Mach4, some actions may not work. However, you are free to use the 'Map to Mach4 signals' option and configure all buttons and LEDs on your own in Mach4 directly.

I assume you are referring to Mach4 plugin and not Mach3...

Check the Mach4 configuration of output signals, especially the output enable signal.

The adjustment pot is really small and relatively stiff. Are you sure that you indeed rotated it? Observe the flat region on one side of the pot head.

PoKeys57CNC does indeed support probing. It may be unclear to me what you mean by fusion probing, so can't answer it.
Regarding the polarity of the probe input - the plugin does not expect this to change during runtime. The best way to solve it to use the NO switch and the touch pad in parallel.

1. Never use PoKeys software if Mach4 is running. You can inadvertedly change settings of the device that can make the device operate incorrectly in Mach4...
2. Check that you have the latest Mach4 plugin (8.21.0.3344) and the PoKeys firrmware (4.2.32)

1. Check that you have latest Mach4 plugin (8.21.0.3344) and latest PoKeys firmware (4.2.32)
2. Run 'Troubleshooting' from the PoKeys application
3. Close any other application that may be using PoKeys device when you use Mach4

The maximum scan rate is needed to get the 'normal encoders' (which can be connected to any pin) to be processed in time. However, you shouldn't be able to detect any issue with the non-maximum scan rate in your setup.
Are you using Mach3/Mach4 or Pulse engine on its own?
