General Mach Discussion / Relay Problem
« on: August 29, 2013, 03:08:24 PM »
I'm running Mach Plasma the first relay I set up worked fine then all of a sudden the torch stopped firing.
I thought I had a bad relay so I replaced it. I changed nothing but relay. I can get it to fire in Mach Mill but not in Plasma.
C-10 BOB w/ relay wired to pin #9
Spindle set @ Output#1,
Output#1 is set to Active, Port 1, Pin 9, Active Low.
I have tried other pins but they will not work either. I've tried everything I could think of including reinstalling Mach 3.
Like I said it was firing great until it mysteriously stopped working. I'm baffled ???

General Mach Discussion / help
« on: January 07, 2013, 04:25:17 AM »
My setup is like this.
1 motor & driver for x
2 motors & drivers for y
My problem is I can only get the slaved motor and driver in y axis to move.
When I switch drivers still only slaved one will move. Same happens when I switch motors.
Only the opposite motor will work which is still the slaved one.
Something else funny, the x axis always works fine no matter what step and dir pin I use in software. For example I have x set physically on pins 6 for step & 7 for dir. It will still move no matter what pin configuration I use in Mach. This is my third build and have never encountered this before. I have checked and re-checked all my connections, wires, motors, drivers, etc. Every thing checks-out. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
