Title: OEM codes for buttons, DRO's and LED's
Post by: Hood on April 27, 2008, 04:07:52 AM
The xls contains a list of OEM codes for buttons, LEDs and DRO's. If any more are known that are not in the list please let me know and I will alter and re attach it for all to use.

Another version of the list can be found in this post. Read the post the newer list is in for more info.

Hey Hood!

Thanks for posting that! Good Stuff!

I have an embarassingly lame question...  Is there an OEM code for 'Fast' Jog.  I'm not even really sure if I am using the correct terminology.  It's when you hold down the Shift button and jog your machine.  Or maybe there is an OEM code for the shift button?

I hope I am making myself clear- if not let me know and I'll try and think of a better way to say this.

Thanks,
Sid

I think toggle override of rapid feeds 287 may be what your looking for.

Thanks Brett!  I tried it but it's not quite what I needed.  I wanted to be able to toggle between slow jog and rapid jog using the shuttle but, No worries- I've got PLENTY of time!  ;)

 sorry dont know :( if its not in the list then you may have to resort to making a VB button to change the feedrate DRO, not great at VB but it should be possible.

Title: Re: No Z Axis forward in Turn3
Post by: absolutecontrols on May 15, 2008, 09:28:36 AM
Hi ;)
 
    Just a quick question about Z Axis motor in Mach3Turn3. I have been using Mach3Mill on my router for a couple years and I just decided to mount a couple stepper motors and connect it up to my Taig lathe. Everything went ok except I don't get any response from the up arrow which should move my work platform towards the head stock. It works if I give it a "G00 Z-.5" under program control but now I seem to have lost the jog in that direction. I think the setup is ok, seems to work fine during tuning. What am I forgetting? Input pins and key codes look ok.
 
   
    Thanks

Post by: sshneider on May 15, 2008, 09:33:20 AM
I don't use a lathe but, I thought that the Keyboard shortcut for Z axis was the Page Up/Page Down keys.  Arrow Keys only work in the Motor Tuning config.  Maybe it's different for Lathe though???

HTH,
Sid
Title: Re: OEM codes for buttons, DRO's and LED's
Post by: Hood on May 15, 2008, 09:55:18 AM
In Turn I think the left and right arrow may be default for the Z, thats what I use. If its not default then its easy enough to set up, just go to Config menu then down to Hotkeys, in there presse on the Z++ and a box will pop up asking you to select a key, press the right arrow and it will be set, do the same for the Z--.
 The X Axis on my lathe is the up and down arrows, again whether this is default I am not sure but easy to set up as detailed above for the Z.

Title: Re: Responce to Sid
Post by: absolutecontrols on May 15, 2008, 01:31:06 PM
Hi Sid
 Thanks for the Reply. When I am using my CNC Router the page up and down controls the Z Axis but when I loaded the turn3 Lathe Mach3 program the default was set to Axis X (Tool Platform) and Axis Z for (back and forth towards the head stock). It surprised me too when I first saw it but when you think about on a Mill or Router the depth cut is the Z Axis the surface is just round here. I did see a options to select different Axis but it kind of made sense so I am working on it from there. It acts like it see the limit switch when using the up arrow but that's working ok. I did change the control for the Z Axis keys to the up and down arrow keys just to keep it visually correct. Maybe I'll try switching them back to the page keys to see if it is different. I know when I reverse the signal the problem reverses and like I said it works in the tune mode ok but then again the up and down arrow jog what Axis you have selected at the time. Thanks for taking the time out to reply. It works under program control just not the jog.... strange.
 
I'll Post something when I figure it out if I live that long.

Thanks again
Title: Re: No Z Axis forward in Turn3
Post by: absolutecontrols on May 16, 2008, 06:15:09 AM
Well it looks like changing the keys used to control the Z Axis in Turn3 is not a great idea. The Hot Key menu will let you do it but you lose one direction of travel. (At least it did to me) When I changed the Z Axis control keys back to Page up and Page down I got control of both directions of travel again. Sid was right... If I hadn't been changing so many things at one time I would have got it sooner. Oh well ..

  Off to other things. After getting it running I seen my little Tiag dose not want to cut .010 depth on a ruff cut on steel and I don't see how to enter a smaller value into the wizard so now I am off to written my own program in VB6 to get some smaller cuts. I may have to put some bigger motors on I though these 86 oz would do the job.


Thanks for the help Sid

This is the list I have been working on for a while. This is just a small part of some of the work going into Rve.4. Its likely you want need a list like this at all in Rev.4  ;) but this needed to be done to get to that point. Hopefully it will help with Rev.3. Really the first 4 columns is all you need to pay much attention to. The vb call column (column 5) is just for reference. Some will be get/set OEMLED, button, dro but it is not noted in this list. I think you will find column 6 (New Number good to sort by. The idea was to group by similar function. If you find any of the new descriptions misleading or think they should be grouped different let me. No guarantee it will change anything but I'd like to know what you think. This isn't being posted to encourage lots of questions or debate just some of our notes that I hope will help you. But, I would like to know if you find the grouping and new descriptions accurate.

Hello Hood, et al,

Could one of you please tell me or point me to an explanation of how you open the gcode file on a screen?  I have been looking into screen design, and am trying to make one of my own, and I think I can "hook up"mostl the buttons I need, whether they are standard functions, or VBscripts, except how to load the gcode file.  I know every one needs to do this, but I just haven't been able to find an example.  I don't see it listed on the standard function list, which is odd.  Is it done in VB?

TIA,

Hi Rimawi2008,

Not trying to fob you off but you really need to read through some of the Mach manuals to get an idea of the way Mach works and the terminology used. The documentation can be found here http://www.machsupport.com/documentation.php
Then come back with your questions. Doing it this way will save you a lot of time.  ;)

Many thanks for all that work.  It is most useful.  I'm hoping you can assist with helping ID the Port 1 and 2 pins.  There are LED's on the Diagnostics screen (12 for Port 1 and 12 for Port 2) but they are not identified as to which pins the LED's match.  The OEM codes are sequential, Port 1 has #137 through #148 and Port 2 has #149 through 160.

I've identified only the following and hope you or someone else can help with the others:

137 ???
138 ???
139 ???
140 - Port 1, Pin 15:  A "Home" on my machine
141 - Port 1, Pin 13:  Z "Home" on my machine
142 - Port 1, Pin 12:  Y "Home" on my machine
143 - Port 1, Pin 10:  E Stop
144 - Port 1, Pin 11:  X "Home" on my machine
145 ???
146 - Port 1 Pin 16 or Pin 17? Not sure which
147 - Port 1 Pin 16 or Pin 17? Not sure which
148 ???
149 Port 2 Pin ???
150 Port 2 Pin ???
151 Port 2 Pin ???
152 Port 2 Pin ???
153 - 160 are Port 2 Pins 2-9 if enabled as inputs

Thanks for any assistance

I am just setting up lathe tooling under Mach3turn, and I notice that the DRO for "Tip Direction" does not do anything (does not reflect the tool table, and does not record inputs).
I have checked the DRO and it is set to OEM code 106 (correct as per documentation I've found). The main problem is I have no idea if Mach is using the value from the tool table.
Entering a G40,G41,G42 command in the MDI produces a change in the axis position (DRO only, no axis movement), but this does not help.
Can anyone shed some light on this?

Not exactly. You can look at the report view in MachScreen to see which are used in screen sets but user leds and dros do not have to be visable to be used in VB. You could open all the VB in Notepad++ and search for userdro and userled.

Thanks Bret,  I now have a handle on DRO's that have been used.

Now a second question:  I would like to attach some code to the E-Stop/reset button that would be used to initialize another button.  I can't find a way to do it in Screen designer.  Any ideas?

That's a bit tricky. The reset button kills everything else, script and all so.......... you will have to think about that. Give us some more details if you can.

Title: Re: OEM codes for buttons, DRO's and LED's
Post by: Quin on December 22, 2013, 11:02:55 AM
Hi Bret,
Attached is the scrip for my button that incrementally adds .010” to the Z work offset.

The processing LED (1214) is used to prevent clicking the button while the scrip is processing.  The loops slow down the script execution.  Without these features, if the operator clicks too rapidly DRO 49 will not reliably register the increment.

Here is the problem I am trying to solve.  If the operator exits Mach3 without canceling, DRO (1006) will retain its value.  Upon restarting the retained value will be shown but DRO49 will have been automatically set to it’s original work offset table value.  If he runs a part program under these conditions he will be cutting at finish dimension rather than at the added value shown in DRO(1006).

Also the message box that Mach3 presents on exiting: “Save fixture settings?” can be confusing.

What I would like to do either on exiting or opening Mach3 is to:  Set DRO(1006) to zero and set DRO(49) to the DRO(1011) value.  How can I do this?
Title: Re: OEM codes for buttons, DRO's and LED's
Post by: Chaoticone on December 22, 2013, 01:21:31 PM
No way to do it on exit that I know of. You could add your functions to a custom macro and add that to the initialization string in general config. When you launch Mach it will run the initialization string. Optionally you can set the initialization string to run on each reset.

initialization string in general config

Add your code in the VB script editor and save as M1000.m1s in your profiles macro folder. Then add M1000 to the initialization string.

These links should help if you haven't got them already.

Have recently completed my router with 2 steppers on the X axis. One moter wired in reverse (a axis) and slaved to X. Homing switches are set up on each individual axis.
Problem (1) is that machine homes on every axis but does not reverse off each switch, and problem (2)is after homing the x axis it will not run in the correct direction when jogged by the arrowed keys. After I have reversed the X axis motors to allow jogging in the correct direction the x axis will then not Home in the correct direction.  Hope someone can help Thanks Humbuk

Post by: Hood on December 24, 2013, 02:42:10 AM
You can reverse the homing direction from Config menu then Homing and Limits page.
Regarding your first problem, do the LEDs at the side of the axes DROs turn green? If they do then the axes have reversed off the switches.

Hi Hood,I will check out the Led's on the DRO'S, havent noticed that one. With the other problem, do I set to run in the correct direction for normal operation, and then reverse the homing on the limits and home page, in other words is there a definate procedure to follow.
Humbuk
Title: Re: OEM codes for buttons, DRO's and LED's
Post by: Hood on December 26, 2013, 05:28:22 AM
You need to set the X Y and Z motion to be the correct direction first. Which way that will be depends on the type of machine you have but one thing is constant and that is the relation of tool to work.
For example if you have a knee type mill the table moving left will be a positive move in X as the cutter would be moving positive in relation to the work piece.
 On something like a gantry router then the gantry moving right would be a positive move as again the cutter is moving positive in relation to the work material.

Once you have X Y and Z set correctly for direction then you can tell Mach the direction you wish to home, ie positive or negative. If you home positive then ideally you want to set a Home Off value equal to the travel of your axis. For example if you had a 500mm X axis and you homed positive then the Home off value would be set as 500. When you homed the axis would be fully positive and the machine coords would be set to 500. That would mean the machine coordinates zero for X was correct as X0 in machine coords would be fully negative.

Its a bit confusing to read but when you see it you will work it out as long as you remember its the relation of tool to material and not necessarily the motion of the axis.

If you haven't found it yet, go to the Config menu in Mach3, then General Config. It's in the middle of the screen, slightly to the left.

Hi Gerry,

I was using a legacy version (1.84) which did not have the general config menu. I converted to the latest version am now able to insert my macro into the initialization string.  It seems to work OK now. I just hope that everything else will work as intended with the latest version.

Hi Hood, back on deck with finishing my router. The set up for homing and jogging in the correct direction is now fine. 1 have a question regarding home switches. currently I use a 5 axis break out board, 1 connection each for 4 axis incl slave , 1 for spindle on off. Can I run the homing switches in series and connect to just 1  board connection so that I can also set up a tool material height micro switch. The Mach 3 simple setup says yes for a 3 axis setup, but it doesnt refer to a 3 axis with fourth slave axis
Regards Humbuk
Title: Re: OEM codes for buttons, DRO's and LED's
Post by: ger21 on January 03, 2014, 07:08:08 AM
The master and slave should be on separate pins if you want the gantry to auto square when homing, but the other two axis can share a pin with either the master or slave.

Hi, I have the router running nc files and homing all ok. I have one problem, I have noticed that a power point or light swiitch when turned of or on is sending a pulse to the cnc and throwing the safety /stop button. All micro homing switch leads are earthed. any ideas to stop this please.
Also I have set up a tool depth set micro , it sits about 200mm in from the end and side of the table and is clear of the machining area. How do I tell mach 3 where this micro switch mechanism is, set the tool depth (surface of the work piece) and then get the XYZ axis  to return to the zero point to start work. I am using Enroute pro for all my toolpathing which sets my tool at top of surface.
I now run all my homing and slave homing switches on 2 inputs on the breakout board, so I now have 2 connections free 1 being for the tool depth micro
Best regards Humbuk

I have one problem, I have noticed that a power point or light swiitch when turned of or on is sending a pulse to the cnc and throwing the safety /stop button. All micro homing switch leads are earthed. any ideas to stop this please.

I would be inclined to fit a mains filter in series with the power input to your CNC (of sufficient current rating).

Thanks Tweakie, chasing up the electrician for the filter.
I have been running large files on the cnc to basically become familiar with motor tuning, speeds, positions on the table. These files are used on my large ART CNC router.
I am coming up with an intermittant problem where the program stops running and it comes up with message "radius to end of arc differs from radius to start" I know the file is ok as I have already cut this file on the large machine. Why would this be coming up especially when I could run this file again and it wouldn't faulter. It also does it with other files as well

Regards Humbuk

Some versions of Mach3 are more tolerant than others with regard to this intermittent problem (load the file first time,it fails - load it a second time and it is OK).
It is worth checking that you have the correct IJ Mode set in Config / General Config and perhaps as a general rule ensure that it is defined at the start of all your Gcode files with G90.1 or G91.1 as appropriate for the way in which arcs have been created in your CAD / CAM.

Hello Hood,
I want to know how I can use an external button to toggle an  UserOEMLED.

I have used all the "named  inputs" in mach3 and I want to use.

I want that when I press a physical button in control panel at input #17 to activate he led.

Please let me know!
Regards,
Ghantos

'simple button
'Paste the contents of the button

 If GetUserLed(1032)=1 Then
     SetUserLED(1032, 0)
     DeActivateSignal(OUTPUT17)
    End
  End If
 
  ActivateSignal(OUTPUT17)

Hello friends ,
Maybe you don't understand me well.

I want at the end to run a macro with an external button (not a button on the screen)
What you explain here is how to activate an output by a screen button.

Please let me know!

Ghantos

Input settings set OemTrig # 15 port and pin your signal
paste it to macropump and restart mach3


Sub Main
  If IsActive(OEMTRIG17) Then
     SetUserLED(1032, 1)
     'ActivateSignal(OUTPUT18)
  End If
Sleep (50)
End Sub

Hello Andmar,
Thank you for the reply,
I have another Question regarding the MacroPump.

If I have a an endless loop that could be "Broken"
By any logic condition such as input trig, button pressed... And after the loop I have some more vb code like calling function s or subs or any simple vb code.
What happen in this case?
Is the macropump still wait until the loop is broken??

Example:
--------macro pump-------
Sub main ()
While(IsStopped)

Code -------
Code ---------
If isactive(input17) them
--------
--------
Wend. ,end of loop

And now in the same macro pump I have

Code--------
Code------
Code ----

End sub
The question is the vb codes after the loop are executed even before the loop if finished??

Please let me know!
Regards,
Ghantos

hi
in theory you age, but you have to determine what are you going to do with this macro
maybe there is another solution to this simpler

The xls contains a list of OEM codes for buttons, LEDs and DRO's. If any more are known that are not in the list please let me know and I will alter and re attach it for all to use.
Hood


Another version of the list can be found in this post. Read the post the newer list is in for more info.

Perhaps I'm missing something, but is there an OEM code for spindle override (s-ov) reset?

I need to map a Pokey's button to it.

What is the magic OEM button code for "auto tool zero"
Title: Re: OEM codes for buttons, DRO's and LED's
Post by: ger21 on December 30, 2016, 06:24:32 PM
There isn't one.
OEM codes are for built in functions.
There is no built in auto zero function.

Auto zero routines are user written macro's.

still not sure, but maybe you are looking for something like this


IF GetOEMLed(806) then
  ActivateSignal(OUTPUT6)
Else
  DeactivateSignal(OUTPUT6)

Hey guys.

Does anyone know why my MACH3 brain does not have some of the DROs?

I looked into the list posted by Hood and another one by Brett and a few other lists that I could find online. All of them includes these:

For example:
75 - Stock Size DRO
836 - Current Tool length DRO

I know there was a couple more that are missing, but I can't remember them.

I use MACH3 R3.043.066

Did later versions of MACH removed some of the DRO's ?

just type in the number, not all of them are in the pull down list.

Thank you for the reply,

I tried, with no success. "old codes" and "new codes". Tried to set it in the pull-down field and "Use DRO Number" field. Still can't pull out Tool length DRO...

Yes, that's how I did. I can create a rung 836, but the output is always 0.0000 while tool length is set as 7.250 (or any other value).
I tried as well "OEM 180 Machine Z coord - Z Work Offset - Tool length" with the same result.

In the end, I managed to get Tool Length by using OEM 42 (Tool Z Offset). It works like a charm!
And I got stock size by calculating values from other DROs.

I already used some other DROs that are not in pull/down list, and they work fine i.e 124, 126.
