Thanks for your reply.  Sorry if this is a stupid question but....  How do I know the BUFFINDEX address?  are you referring to the MODBUS Address?  Not clear on this.  Perhaps and example with some sample data would be helpful if you wouldn't mind??

THANK YOU!

Modbus / is it possible to call Modbus commands with G or M Codes?
« on: March 12, 2020, 05:59:39 PM »
I would like to be able to turn on/off a few devices (via PLC/Modbus) by using G or M Codes.  Does anybody know of this is possible?  If so... any info/tutorials would be much appreciated!

THANK YOU!

NEXT QUESTION!!!  What you explained works GREAT for Outputs already a part of the MACH3 architecture BUT, what if you run out of MACH3 Outputs and just want to turn on/off more devices via MODBUS/PLC. 

For example, I want to turn on/off the Air Compressor in my shop by pushing a button on MACH3 Screen.

Simply Put... in the example below... what do I enter to replace the OUTPUT1 identifier so it will be recognized by MODBUS instructions?

 DeactivateSignal (OUTPUT1)
Else
    ActivateSignal (OUTPUT1)


what do I enter to replace the OUTPUT1 identifier so it will be recognized by MODBUS instructions?

THANKS AGAIN SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!

OK, I just tried it....  Output is activated as expected but will not Deactivate.    I'm using Output 6 and copied your script only changing the "1" to a "6".  Any ideas what could be Wonky??  THANK YOU!!!

Well, honestly gang I'm finding it pretty hard to express my condolences as eloquently as those of you whom have previously posted.  This week started with Crappy news, got worse and this pretty much tops it all off. 

I communicated with Tom on a few occaisons and like Art, always realized his passion for the Laser/video probing concept.  His energy and positive attitude were infectious and it was always a pleasure to speak to him and exchange findings, ideas and the like.

I am really sorry to learn of his passing and can only hope that he has found peace and relief from his illness.  He will be missed.
