Title: MPG & Keyboard Jog question
Post by: kencor1 on May 03, 2010, 04:56:24 PM
I have just installed a CNC4pc MPG2 and the brains that go along with it. I am using a smooth stepper also. The mpg is working fine, my problem is that I can no longer jog with the keyboard. Does anyone know how I can use either the MPG of Keyboard to jog?. Even if I disable the brains I still cant jog with the keyboard unless I reinstall my XML file from before I enabled the brains, but as soon as I enable the brains I can no longer use the keybeard no matter what I do.

Dont know anything about the pendant and its Brain but what happens if you press the Tab key and change the Jog mode to constant? If it changes back to MPG instantly then its the Brain thats doing it and I would imagine it would be possible to add to the brain so that you need a button press to set to MPG mode.
