i have been trying to upgrade to M4 for more than a year. M3 runs like it should be on an intel nuc I5 with 16GB RAM, with CS-MIO IP/s from CSLabs. on this PC i run M4 as wel.... i continuously get PID errors when moving the axis. had several times contact with CSLabs, and they updated their firmware once in 1.5 year... still get the PID errors.
i went back to M3...tired of testing. M4 in combination with CSLabs products is definitely not the right combination

thanks all for the replies.

CS-Lab / update to M4 .5000 version
« on: January 07, 2023, 03:22:04 AM »
i have an EMCO mill converted to mach3 and that runs for a few years now. i use CSLABS CSMIO/IP-S six axis and pokeys for the pendant. the pc is an intel nuc with W10/8GB internal RAM. i converted it to M4 (previous version 46..) all went wel, i made the software for the toolchanger, perfect. (https://youtu.be/a72-Q8TJUow) i did an upgrade to the .5000 version. now CSLABS comes with PID fault: error 1092
i reinstalled M4, made a new clean profile and entered all the setting.. nothing works.
i hope to get some ideas...

VB and the development of wizards / Edge detection on input
« on: January 13, 2016, 01:15:19 PM »
i need to detect a falling edge of an input to control my turret

i think the code is right but it hangs mach3?

wanted_position = 6
counter = 0
marker = 0
'input 1 = the couter of the turretpostion

message "c = " &counter
sleep(100)

activatesignal(output3) 'start run turret
While ismoving()
Wend


While (counter <> wanted_position)

   If Not isactive(input1) And marker = 0 Then
      counter = counter + 1
      marker = 1
   End If
   

   If isactive(intput1) And marker = 1 Then
      marker = 0
   End If

   message "c = " &counter

Wend

deactivatesignal(output3) 'stop turret

tnx for your reply!

General Mach Discussion / G84 reverse time
« on: September 08, 2013, 02:15:38 PM »
I am testing my emco vmc100 with mach3 every works fine but i do not understand one thing

I use the g84 for tapping that works oke except that if the tap is at the bottom the spindle reverses but it takes a second or so before the z-axis moves up. I think that should be immediatly?

Thank you for your reply

Machscreen Screen Designer / System hotkeys
« on: September 08, 2013, 02:07:31 PM »
Hi,

I use the 1024 mach screen and i made an extra page in tis screen set. All works fine except the systemkeys like jogging the axis with the keyboard arrow keys. If i select an other (standard) page the keys work well

Tnx for you reply

what i want is swinging the a-axis while the z-axis is moving to a position. how is that posible in vb?
i made this but this wil move the z-axis first and then swing the a-axis. i want this simultaneously

counter = 0
code "g1 z90 f100"

While counter < 20
 code "g0 a0.5"
 While ismoving()
 Wend
 code "g0 a-0.5"
 While ismoving()
 Wend
 counter=counter+1

thank you for your reply.

PoKeys / pokeys 56u analog FeedRate Override issues
« on: December 08, 2012, 08:55:43 AM »
hi,

i use the latest mach and pokeys software.
if i map encoder 1 directly to FRO (DRO:821) it works great, but it would be perfect if i press reset FRO that the encodervalue would be reset too to a value of 100.
if i use analog input on input 41-47 and if i map this to DRO:821, feedrate override does not respond correctly, or not respond at all.

tnx TanTan
