Got it!  Two switches are wired but only 1 is mapped.

Mauri,

I switched out the 201x for a 203v and it does work better!
Thanks!

I will try it thanks!

I was wondering about the fractional vs integer step number.

I have 20000 steps per revolution with a Gecko 201x drive.

That would be 55.56 steps per degree rounded.  I have entered 55.56 in Mach4 motor settings.

Should I have used 55.555555?

Thanks

I have an A axis which is working well except when I jog 1 degree repeatedly, I get 1.01 then 2.02 then 3.03
The addition of hundreds is not always consistent.  I expected that a jog of 1 degree would always show a DRO of 1 more degree.
It also happens when I use a Gcode move to 1, 2, and 3 degrees.

Is this a step per unit issue or something else from the plugin etc?

I have a Pokeys57E and a CNC4PC C62 BOB.

Thanks
