Hello Forum,

I have an Industrial Brand 48 x 48 x 10 CNC router running Mach3/Win7. I bought the system used and it all seems
fine. I went and set up the soft stops in Mach3 and now when I shut the CNC Router off with the power switch, the Z axis and spindle descends several inches! First time it happened, it scared the you know what out of me. I have since turned soft stops off before shut down. The Spindle will stay where it was. Anyone know why this might be happening? Thank you.  BSA-LLC

PoKeys / PoKeys57CNC 10 PIN IDC connector to CWD250 ground wires/pins?
« on: March 08, 2020, 04:59:47 PM »
Hello, I have a "Industrial Brand" CNC router that I am converting to use the Poykeys57CNC board because it actually has documentation and many more inputs/outputs available. I have the Pokeys wiring ribbon cable kit to run my ribbon wire from the PoKeys BOB 10 Pin connectors to CWD250 stepper motor controllers that came with the router. I saw one helpful video where the person just cut the ribbon cable ground wires off the cable but I am thinking they should be there for a reason? But where does one wire them to on the CWD250 stepper controller? I have what little info that CW-Motor provides but it does not answer this question. Any helpful suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks, BSA-LLC

Hello Forum,

I have a post on the forum where I was trying to trouble shoot a BOB and limit switch issue  (actually they are NO proximity switched wired in parallel). I have decided it would probably be better if I just bought a new PoKeys57CNC BOB and wire it into my "Industrial Brand" CNC router because the 57CNC BOB has real documentation and it has more inputs and outputs available than my existing BOB that has NO Documentation and only 3 inputs that I can see (Limit Switch, E-stop and one labeled H ???) .

My question to the forum is, can I install a new BOB and use the Pokeys57CNC plug in with my existing copy of Mach3 or do I have to completely reinstall Mach3? The instructions that came with the router says you have to place an .XML file into the Mach3 folder in order for the Mach3 to work with the router. I can see some .XML files in the Mach3 folder on my computer but there is not just one? 

Anyone gone through this process before? What is a .XML file? Some kind of profile file?   Thanks, BSA-LLC

FAQs / Homing/limit switches- type No or NC? Not working on my CNC Router
« on: February 18, 2020, 08:51:54 AM »
Hello Forum,

I recently bought a used "Industrial Brand 48x48x10 CNC router. It has Mach3 Ver 2.0 loaded and running. It has 3 magnetic limit switches (LMF1-3005NA NPN Normall Open) installed but they do not stop the travel of any axis of the router? I used to have a Digital Wood Carver CNC router table and its limit/home switches that I installed were NC cherry switches. These worked fine. I was reading the Mach3 manual and they talked about double NC limit switches wired with an inline resistor. My question is, can I get these proximity switches to work or do I need to change them out? I want to have the machine operate with limit switches. I have a Tormach CNC 1100 Mill and its limit switches work, of course. Any constructive suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks BSA-LLC
