Hi, I sent you a PM regarding buying your screenset but have had no response. Is your screenset still for sale?

Well, no joy there,
It does exactly the same. however if I initiate g code and while the program is running activate the engage armature switch the axis move then trip move then trip.

Thanks for the input though

Phil.

Hi Chad.
with the computer disconnected and the engage armature switch activated it does exactly the same thing as before.
If the polarity on the servos are reversed it simplr reverses the direction of travel on that axis.

Thanks
Phil

Hi Chip,
Thanks for the speedy reply. I have attached the xml file.
I have tried three computers all with the same results-IE drive to full extents on all three axis when the "engage armature " switch is activated.
The system is a closed loop servo system By Lowcost cnc retrofits 3 X MCG ID23-005 / 420oz.in, and 1 Ametek 600oz  the units seem to be of good quality and I have no reason to doubt their integrity, much more likely that its my inexperience.
The first and preferred computer was a P4 1.8gig IBM, I then tried a compaq laptop and my desktop p4 all with the same results.
Pins are:
X axis step=2
X axis dir=3
Y axis step=4
Y axis dir=5
Z axis step=6
Z axis dir=7
A axis step=8
A axis dir=9

Thanks for the help
Phil.

Hi to everyone,
I am biulding a square column mill conversion and hooked up the X,Y and Z axis yesterday. despite having Mach3 fully operational, pendant working etc there seems to be no comnunication between the computer and the motors, I have checked the port addresses and everything seems to be in order, the only thing that happens is when the engage armature switch is selected the axis all move one way until disengaged or hit the end of travel. It probably is something really simple that Im missing however any help would be welcome.

Thanks
Phil.
