General Mach Discussion / Tool height Sensor Problem
« on: July 29, 2017, 12:23:39 AM »
Hello Every one

I'm hoping some one could help me. My tool height sensor was working perfectly for over 8 months. then one-day it decided to stop working (whilst making a very expensive table top) it preceded to not earth out the probe and so the machine did not stop a drove the tool deep in the the sensor and then in to the the table top.
I have checked the wiring and all is fine so im not sure if its a problem with the break out board or a software problem with Mach3?
Has any one experienced this before? I can see on the diagnostics page that nothing is registering when i touch on the tool with the sensor.

Any help would be much appreciated

I am not sure what it is it has come up a few time have you looked back through the forum

Yeh i have found a bit of information. Most info i have found would suggest bad drivers. The gentlemen on this posting has replaced the drivers and solved the problem. Figures crossed.

Daniellyall Thanks for your reply

is the copy of Mach 3 registered to you or did it come with the machine

The software came with the machine. It is only running in demo mode. I was hoping to test machine before licensing. If it won't run on demo mode i guess il purchase now.  :)
I have downloaded the latest demo of mach3 but still the same problem.

Hey Guys

Im Brand new to the Forum. And I'm need of a bit of information.
I have bought a Chinese router and I'm struggling to get Mach3 to communicate with the Motion Card. I'm Getting the 8877 message as well. I have been on the manufactures of the Breakout board website and downloaded the driver from there as i was hoping it was a problem with the one supplied from china. but still same error message.
Can anyone point me in the direction of a driver they know works? Or shed some light on things?

Thank you very much
