General Mach Discussion / Re: XYZ Can't Find switches Why!
« on: August 09, 2015, 02:53:36 PM »
OK...All working again DON'T HAVE A CLUE WHAT I DID!!! Poked and clicked as advised. The only thing I did different was I disconnected all but the power from the G540. Shut it all down for 30 seconds turned it back on got green. Turned it off hooked common wire back to port 4 turned it on. WALA! I can only guess the G540 has a reset...I don't know! TWO WEEKS! I need a shot and since I can't buy you all one... Get a glass and have one yourself. THANKS to ALL AGAIN!

Ok....I tested all... rewired and I have three green lights and when I trip each switch the forth comes on. Mach sees them but still won't back off after reference home.  I also did the Automated Setup and it did set. But still won't back off and zero.

Any Ideas.

So if the Z-switch is the first one hit that would be the end and my start checking point? And if continuity is good I'm then thinking a bad terminal in the Gecko 540?

 Nick...Thanks for your guidance... Diagnostics dose not recognize switches when manually tripped. Config - Ports & Pins - Input Signals - Automated Setup of Inputs can't find them ether.

thanks

motor gets to hot to hold on to. I put a set screw in the coupling Because I thought it was expanding and slipping a tad. I'll try the heat sink and fan.

Thanks for the help Garry, cut it back from 30.6000 to 15.000 and it still started climbing 1/2 way through the file. it's almost seems after the motor heats up it begins to climb. do you think it could be a hot G540 controller?

General Mach Discussion / Climbing Z axis
« on: July 16, 2012, 04:50:28 PM »
 I'm having an issue with my Z axis slowly climbing out of my material as my relief file runs...it looks like it starts to climb around 50% of the file has run.
Question two I tried to run the file in reverse run to see if it happens in reverse but I can't seem to start the file in reverse. do I have to run the file all the way before I can reverse run? I attached the work after the scales of justice file ran
Thanks

General Mach Discussion / Master and Slave not in sink?
« on: August 19, 2011, 05:36:12 PM »
Hi All, Why does my slave axis "A" end up .5" off Home after running a file or jogging around. And is it possible to set the steps of the slave. I'm a Joe's cnc 4x4 builder.
