Mach4 General Discussion / ESS Inputs and Outputs not doing anything
« on: July 05, 2018, 02:07:58 PM »
In the process of switching over to the ESS and I am having some trouble getting things setup. Trying to get the E-Stop and Enable signals going first. Have the E-Stop going from port3pin26 for the 5v to port3pin13 through a normally open switch. Have the pin13 set to active low and have Mach4 pointing to that pin in it's control menu. The problem is pushing the switch does nothing and Mach4 always shows the E-Stop clear, and if I set pin 13 to low Mach4 always shows the E-Stop tripped. As far as the enable signals go there doesn't seem to be any output.

Just got a ESS to replace a pokeys57cnc but now I can't seem to figure out how to setup to motor feedback from the Clearpaths.  I have found examples of how to wire everything up and get it set up in Mach3 to stop the system if the motors error out but I can't seem to find out how to do this in Mach4 with the ESS.  The pokeys57cnc had dedicated motor error inputs to handle this and I don't want to run the machine without having this setup in case the motors have an issue.  Any help would be much appreciated.
