PoKeys / Re: 57CNCdb25, Mach4 and Gecko540 m03-05 relay control problem
« on: October 23, 2016, 07:29:18 PM »
NeoTO,
Thanks, I sure didn't think that through very  well! That got the spindle working, but after setting that up,  the X axis quit moving. All else seems OK. I can't see any relationship there, but nevertheless... the problem follows when swapping motor connectors at the motors, or on the G540. I'm at a loss as to how to troubleshoot for loss of step/direct signals with the Pokeys interface.  This is my first experience with mach4 and Pokeys, and i can't seem to find any troubleshooting information. Any Ideas on this issue?
Thanks,
Roger

PoKeys / 57CNCdb25, Mach4 and Gecko540 m03-05 relay control problem
« on: October 22, 2016, 02:40:57 PM »
I have designed and built a small CNC PCB drill, controlled by Mach4, Pokeys db25, and Gecko540. I included two relays to control the spindle motor on/off, and a spare. M-codes will not affect the relays, but by inverting outputs (pins 1 and 17) pin activity, the relays will run the spindle motor when not in e-stop and stop on e-stop (and vice-versa).  This tells me that the relays are connected and working correctly. What is missing to get mo3-05 to toggle the relays?
Thanks,
Roger

Good.
Adding a Mach4 version of that in the Mach4 section would work for me...
Thanks,

NeoTO,
that installed the driver, no more Mach4 crashes.

I was unable to find reference to that setup file on  the PoKeys website...

Thanks again,

PoKeys / 57CNCdb25 Fast_USB Driver Not installing for Mach4
« on: June 30, 2016, 01:47:26 PM »
I have a Pokeys 57CNCdb25 connected (USB) to Win10 laptop with mach4 running.

I'm trying to set up the Pokeys without a (G540) drive controller connected.

I Installed required files into plugin folder per instructions.

Mach4 crashes when saving configuration, and when restarting Mach4, configuration dialog exists, but not fully configurable.

Bulk interface appears in device manager with missing drivers noted when plugged into USB.

Fast_USB Driver/folders do not exist anywhere in the system.

Can Fast_USB Driver install without a drive controller connected?

What am I missing?

Tool Path Limits persistence would be good for me...

Very trivial considering, but...
Please include the standard colors dialog in the color editing popup.
