Got it fixed

I'm replacing the cable from my pendant.
It has a MPG and a E stop on it.
The old cable is breaking down and insulation is crumbling.
Also, a straight cable would be easier to use instead of the coiled.
Does the new cable new to be shielded?

Any ideas where to start?
I'm  going to reroute new wire to the Estop switches.
Bypass all the old wires.
Then, check settings on the pins page.

I have a Hurco mill that was retrofitted in 2011.
It has ran great over the years.
After sitting idle (no power) for about 5 months,when I power it on the Estop won't  reset.
Both Estop buttons and wiring check ok.
The Estop light on my control panel stays lit up, and the main screen 'reset flashes'.
It has been so long since  I've  messed with the pins and settings in mach.
Can someone tell me which pins in the settings I can check/reset/ toggle?

Thanks  so much.

I recently had a scare where my computer that ran mach3 on my mill was acting up.
There is a copy of my .xml file on a jump drive, but since the build was so long ago, what screen pics. would be helpful?
My thoughts were to take a pic of each screen  with the current settings,too.
Any other advice or shortcuts  to help with this procedure.


I think you will find that Version R3.043.062 is the best one to use.


Thanks for that info. Much appreciated.👍👍👏👏💯

Thanks  for that  info.
When I searched Google,  it just showed the latest version on several host sites.
Will let y'all  know how update goes.

Any ideas where I can download a  newer version? Not necessarily  the newest, maybe something around 2013???

General Mach Discussion / Wanting to upgrade mach 3 to a newer version

My mill is using an older ( licensed) version of mach 3.
It seems that it's  around a 2010-2011  year edition. At the time of my retrofit, it was the latest edition.
It the past there was a few problems where the spindle wouldn't  reverse in auto tapping, etc.
What would be the latest upgrade that some of you would recommend?
Right  now I don't have the info on the computer that is running the system.
 That can be provided tomorrow if necessary.
Thanks in advance.


Thanks again for all the help.
