dspMC/IP Motion Controller / Re: Shuttle Intermittent Recognition
« on: February 03, 2018, 02:34:06 PM »
For my own notes, I got it to work twice in a row with this sequence; unplug USB pendant, plug in USB pendant, power up DSPMC, boot Mach3.

dspMC/IP Motion Controller / Shuttle Intermittent Recognition
« on: February 01, 2018, 03:11:16 PM »
I have a USB shuttle connected (ShuttleRU - http://cncpendant.ru/en/shuttleru.html). It is recognized sometimes and sometimes it is not in Mach3. I have the "Enable Mach3 USB MPG Mode" checkmarked in the DSPMC configuration window. Rebooting the PC or laptop or Mach3 does not help. I have not found any consistent way to get it to work. I don't know if it is a DSPMC issue or not. Do you have any suggestions on how to debug it?

The DSPMC is loaded with 4.0.41.

I used the firmware that Vital Systems sent me. I don't have the firmware number handy. But I suspect if you download the latest firmware, you will get the fix.

I tried it and it solved the G31 problem. My edge detection buttons are working again. I ran a circle pocket program and that also worked. It looks ok.

Thanks.

That did occur to me last night. But the diagnostics page shows the probe flashes the Digitze LED and it does not trip an Estop when activated. But even if they were,  that does not explain this sequence:

After G31 error, reset DSPMC, restart Mach 3, and  hit the Mach 3 Reset button. All is ok. Mach 3 Reset button stays green. The probe going active does not cause an Estop. Only after a G00 or G01 does the Estop trip, and the Reset button flashes. I cannot reset Mach3 until I reboot Mach3. The Estops messages are continuous. The Diagnostics screen does not show the Estop button active.

I cannot get G00 or G01 to work until I reprogram the firmware.

The only plugin I'm using is for the Russian pendant, ShuttleRu (Andrey67 on CNCZone).

The problem persists.

I reprogram the Flash with 8.24. It loads successfully and I reboot it.
I start Mach 3
I test that I can move the x axis with a shuttle
I test that I can use a G0 or G01 command
I execute a G31 command without the probe being detected. All is well to this point
I execute a G31 command and detect the probe. An emergency stop occurs and Mach 3 posts the message 'ERROR: Following error limit exceeded on Axis 0. Servo disarmed'
I hit the reset button.
I make a shuttle move ok
A G0 or G01 command results in emergency stop and the error message 'E stop button pressed'.
Hitting the reset button and trying again gives the same results.
I turn the DSPMC off and back on. This does not clear the problem.  A g0 or G01 results in the error message 'E stop button pressed'. I have to reload the firmware.

The G31 causes the problem and reloading the firmware clears it.

Nothing was changed before the problem started.

I reloaded the DSPMC firmware and FPGA load. That fixed it.

Changing polarity on the estop signal makes the axis go drifting off and I am not able to reset.

Plugin 4.0.17

dspMC/IP Motion Controller / Estop Button Pressed Error
« on: August 11, 2015, 10:17:11 PM »
Something has changed on my mill. I boot up Mach3 and the DSPMC. I can move the table with my pendant. If I try to enter a G01 x1, I get an error 'Estop button pressed'. This message continues to be reposted continously. There are no other messages in the log.

 I don't have an estop button. There is an estop button assigned in the inputs (port 1 pin 10). Its always been that way and has worked fine. I cannot disable that assignment. If I do, when I check it again, it is enabled.

The diagnostics screen does not indicate an estop is present.

Only a reset of the DSPMC clears the problem.
 
Ideas?
