General Mach Discussion / Mach3 configuration for EmcoF1 mill
« on: March 30, 2018, 10:35:48 AM »
Just assembled everything, and went on to try out the Mach3 as a running software. But, there are some hiccups.

I am using a ST-V2 bob, M542T drivers and some compatible motors. Also, I left the stock DC main spindle motor on it, and got a digital HX-SXPWM-A Pulse-Width DC motor speed controller from eBay. Bob is powered by independent 24V power supply.
Everything seems to be connected properly, I used shielded cables for driver/stepper connecting, but there is a problem...
Steppers are running as they should (configured ports and pins, and tuned them not to stall etc), but when I try to run the main spindle motor, its either not responding (depending on how do I check or un-check the active low setting) or its responding, but I get some movement on Z axis too (stepper movement is minimal, and spindle motor sounds really bad). If I change a setting for output signal, spindle motor works fine, but then I loose the stepper movement in any direction.
What could be the cause of this?
