Title: OEM trigger??
Post by: learman on October 02, 2007, 08:20:30 AM
hello
using Mach 3 to induction harden pins for Ford,, and it works awsome!!  I have setup external start, stop button using oem triggers.  the problem is when I press the stop button It stops the g code but leaves whatever outputs that have been turned on,, on,, I have looked through the oem tigger names and cant seem to find one that will shut all outputs off. 

Thank
Josh

General config, check "turn off outputs" under pgm end section

Have a look at the Brain, shouldnt be too hard to reset the outputs to what you want.

Hello Josh Learman,

I am an automotive induction heat treater also, close to Detroit.  I have built a scanner and "lift and rotate" and  several drop fixtures with PLC's but I never considered using Mach 3 as a control, it could save a lot of money and standardize all my interfaces  I just completed a three axis engraver (A personal project) but still trying to stop occasional "External Emergency Stop Requested" messages.

Induction noises from the stepper motors I suppose.  But that is nothing compared to High Frequency Induction noises.
I would be interested in how you control your logic signals around all that noise.
