General Mach Discussion / Re: second post and I need help

Yes I did get it fixed and the machine runs great. What I found was a bad din rail terminal block connection. Drove me nuts for days.

General Mach Discussion / Problem with homing
« on: June 16, 2009, 07:55:49 PM »
When I try and home my router Z works just fine, then Y homes fine and when it starts to do X it acts like it is just trying to move the X motor and not the A that is slaved to it. The two run together just fine except when trying to home or reference the gantry in X. I have been through everything that I know to check (even though at this time it is not alot) and can not figure it out. I used the video on setting up the switches and soft limits and reviewed  it again to try and make sure I did not miss anything.
Thanks

The stepper drivers are Keling KL-9082. They have plug in connections on them that make it real easy to swap the connections. This way I could just move the motor wiring to the driver for another axis and test the motor circuit and it was fine. I then tested the motor and driver by pluging in the wiring from another axis to the Y controller and it ran both directions. I then plugged in the cable from the BOB for the Y axis into the driver for the Z axis and the single direction problem moved with it. So the system works from the controller out. It just does not seem to get a signal out of the board but in one direction.

What I did was unplug the connector for Y and plug it in to the Z controller and then Z would only move one direction. With the wiring from Z plugged in the Y controller the Y axis would run both directions. I with you, I think the problem is in the BOB and going to request another one this morning.

I got my router powered up for the first time yesterday and everything went good till I got to the Y axis motor tuning. I can only get the y Axis to drive in the plus direction on the table. I verified the setup in Mach, tested the motor on another driver (it ran both directions), moved the control wires to another controller and the problem followed, and I have an led indication on the board that I am getting a signal from Mach. The board is a CNC4PC C11G. Everything came from Keling and he has been very helpful and I have an email into CNC4PC. Is there anything in mach to help with further diagnosis? It all seems to point to the board.
Thanks

Well this is my first post and I just got my software loaded yesterday. I am building a cnc router for my sign business. It has a 50" X 100" work area with room for a rotory axis at the end. It moved under it's own power for the first time yesterday afternoon. Looks like a great deal of information and knowledge here and I hope to use it often.
Thanks
Jimmy
