FAQs / Re: Voltage swing
« on: October 07, 2009, 08:09:17 PM »
No one has had this problem. I still cannot get any voltage swing from mach 3. Is there a common set up for windows xp that i could try and see if i can get that work?
At least if can get the pin out work from P.P. I can then focus on the steeper and controller. I just to make sure the Mach 3 is set correctly \. Any help would be greatly appricated.
Could some one post how their mach 3 mill is set.

I am having  a problem with getting my stepper kit run. I think I have found the problem. When using the jog button i find the pin that is switching but the swing is from 3Mv to 23Mv when the x jog button is pressed. Do I need a different board before the BOB to pump up signal
Thanks

I just did volt pin out on the printer cable and do not get any pins to switch 5 volts. I check the printer adress and it apears to set up correctly. There are 4 pins that have a constant 5vdc.

The version is 7.0.6.1 I have  the bob wired per the instruction supplied. I did just try the drive test again and cannot locate missing vectors error came up.
I did  do the set up per vid on the web sight. I believe it is config correctly. The kit is from motiontek.ca. There is no ifo on the pinout for the Printer cable i just used the smae pins for the bob ie pin 1 pul pin 3 dir. I will try to cocntact motiontek and see if this is correct.
I also did the drive test before hooking motors and drive and it passed . I cannot seem to post the xml file. How do attach the files to post here. When i open the xml back up file I see the files but cannot open them its looking for some other program to open them with.
Thanks for help
Jim

Thanks for the info I did do check on PP and it appears to be OK  I did also use the other PP and doesnt work What I am wondering could it be that i am in some sort set where i can run the dros with out the motors running I did  see something about this on the video could this be it, it did ask me to install the driver during the software install.
as far checking the cable do you know which pins to check 5vdc during jog mode? and if i see know 5vdc it has something do with the way i have software up
 How do i export XML file.
Thanks again for the help

I have mach 3 running on windows xp and i cannot communicate to my driver board. the driver board is intergration solutions c10 Bi directional parallel port. I have gone thru the pin outs and they seem to correct but when jog with jog buttons the motors do run, the dro on the monitor is showing movement but no movement with motors. Im assuming this is any fix that im missing any help would great.
