In the user manual for PoKeys57CNC - pages 9 and 10.

Hi, Dan

Pin numbers are indicated on the pinout diagram of the PoKeys57CNC device. Search for 'PoKeys pin' blocks in the diagram and you will find pin numbers.

As I already responded in the same message on the ticketing system, we are sorry for your lost workpieces.

As noted there, we will be doing a test procedure to try to replicate the jogging problems you have to avoid having such issues in the future. As was in the past, all issues that we are able to replicate are solved ASAP.

You can use the shared slot communication support - this way you can communicate between Mach4 and PoBlocks project. In Mach4, enable shared slot support in the plugin settings and in PoBlocks use either the dedicated shared data blocks or share the port of an existing one. In LUA, registers can be accessed as 'PoIL shared #num'.

This should be simple - use Digital input block (don't forget to uncheck 'Initialize function' property) for each key pin, wire it to Rising edge block (under trigger/timing blocks), wire all outputs of those to OR gates (set the Inputs property to maximum value of 4 to reduce the number of these gates needed), then the single output signal to a Pulse timer, that activates the PWM output Smiley

The PWM has been fixed in the latest plugin release.

Yes, it is. The only limitation is that PoBlocks application and Mach4 can't run at the same time since only one application on the PC can access the device at a time.

Develop the project in PoBlocks, the disconnect the app from PoKeys device before starting Mach4.

Hi, Gerd

We are unable to replicate this issue with the latest plugin and Mach4. The additional unneeded messages have been removed a while ago, but the overflow problem on MPG jogging action is something we are unable to replicate.

1. Never run any other application that accesses the PoKeys device in parallel with Mach3!
2. Check that the DRO 817 changes according to your code.

As we responded in the support ticket, configure the PWM output to be mapped to a DRO in %, not a fixed value in %.

A fixed value setting will result in a fixed value on the output - this is useful for setting up LCD backlight and contrast, but it is not intended to drive a spindle with it...

Select 'Mapped to DRO in %, select DRO 817 in the list, configure the multiplier to 0.00417 (so that when spindle DRO reads 24.000 the result is 100) and check the check box below to turn off the PWM output when spindle is turned off.
