Title: Newbie here, be gentle with me!! :-) JOG Issues ?
Post by: cubby on March 27, 2017, 10:57:29 AM
This is a new build machine for Wood routing. Running Windows 7.
Samsung i7 with 8 gig of ram laptop using USB control board.
I've went through and set up the software settings and configs to the best of my knowledge. But it seems that isn't much.
Problem is X and Z axis are reversed,, but I can change that by swapping the wires on Breakout board.
When looking at the Jog Screen the X+ Y+ and Z+ are Green and not responding.
The X- Y- and Z- are Red and do jog the machine.
Thank you for your insight and expertise.   ???

Hi Cubs,

Welcome to the forum.

The colors of those jog buttons are fixed and do not change.

Which USB control board are you using ?

Hi Cubs,

Have you followed the installation instructions and set-up details for the Novusun controller ?

Try connecting a multimeter between the Com+ and Dix- terminals then when jogging the X axis the reading should change between 0V and 5V depending on jog direction. Does this occur ?

Tweakie,, found motor driver to be defective,, Ordered a new one today. And Will Bolt an aluminum plate inside my wooden control box to mount
motor drivers on to dissipate the heat better. Might have to mount a fan as well.
Will update when I get the Driver in.
