Title: lost config settings
Post by: Lindsay on April 06, 2006, 09:38:41 AM
So far things have been running hunky-dory with Mach 2 and my servos. Last night though, my configuration went wonky, i.e. pin/port settings, motor reversals and slave axis. Nearly tore the machine apart when the two y motors took off in opposite directions. Good thing I still have decent reflexes.
Little tinkering to reset controls and align mechanical components - nothing serious in the end.
I don't remember doing anything different to change things.
Has anyone heard of this happening? Do I need a priest to get the poltergeist out of my shop? Memory pills?

I have a suspicion it is not Mach, but an intermittant faulty encoder.
These sound like the symptoms I have experienced in the past.
