Any idea how to access the analogue input on the IP-S from a brain? Need to do a rapid override and have no clue how to do it...

That was two outputs I was seeing Wink

Are you using the keyboard for jogging?

Deleted the XML and created a new profile again. Now this issue is gone. Have no idea how it was getting access to the old XML after I did windows restore.

Now got to the MPG. The way it is, is strange, because it appears that they made all the settings for me and I can't change it. I have a pendant with a momentary enable switch for the resolution select and the axis select (like they show in their example in the manual), but funnily this switch also enables/disables the MPG wheel, although physically they are not linked (like can be seen in their example). Is it the normal way it works? Also pressing this switch activates the two digital outputs on the MPG module as seen on the diagnostics LEDs. Have no idea why it happens.

Yes, have fresh Mach3 and XML with a new, different name profile. Will check regarding the .Net.

Yes, using the IP-S. So seems I still have something left over from the IP-A installation, though when I did windows restore it deleted everything including Mach3, so not sure where do I delete this.

Hi Hood,

Did a restore to Windows to a point before installing the IP-A software as I had a feeling there were some conflicts, and now those errors are gone Smiley

However, now have another issue - when trying to jog I am getting this error message. Ever seen this?

Hood,

Mach version .062, plugin version 2.1 (latest on the website), but also tried the one that came on the CD with the CSMIO which was version 2.05, I think. Thanks for the offer, will get the XML tomorrow. You have the IP-S on the Connect?

OK, have it partly worked out. You are right - it wants me to enter some value in the encoder index homing. After doing it, it continues to pop all sorts of other messages, like wrong slave parameters, wrong spindle parameters, and so on. Entering values for all these, it eventually allows me to do a save, but then after I exit and reload the config, all the settings are erased and back to default. Just can't wok this way. So you're saying you never had seen this... and CS Labs are not answering... Will may be try to call them tomorrow.

Hi Hood,

Supplying 5V to the pots fixed things indeed. Now facing another issue though. When opening the CSMIO plugin config window I am getting some invalid argument message, see a screenshot attached (msg1). Then if trying to save the settings I am getting an error message, see screenshot attached (msg2). Any idea what it might be? Didn't have this happen when I was playing with the CSMIO/IP-A.

Thanks, Hood! Will redo the analogue on Sunday when I get to the workshop.

Checked the datasheet for the above chip and it seems to be sourcing only, indeed. And as you guessed, it can take anything from 5.5V to 36V and have it on the outputs. Not the best solution for an industrial controller, though I can see some advantage in being able to output different voltage levels. Also, in a standard application I think you would most likely have common GND, not needing separate GND for every bunch of 4 outputs.

Thanks again. Think I can finish the wiring now.

Dan
