The plug in was updated also

Ok, so I tried moving the encoder to another input (5), and still had the same problem. I then reflashed the csmio and bingo, after a reboot of the device it started working perfectly again.

Thanks all for your help and thoughts

I've had a quick look through the XML config, and I can see the values I'm chaning in MACH3 are updating in the conifg

EncPPR1 and Steps1 are of the value

ok I've doubled checked the wiring, there is only 6 cables going to the servo, so no built in encoder there. I've also double checked the encoder is connected to the right input on the CSMIO.

I also tried disconnecting the encoder, which resulted in the machine not able to detect move moment of the Y axis so I get a PID error as expected. So I'm sure the machine is looking at the correct encoder, but can't understand why the changes I'm making to the config are not having any affect?

The encoder doesn't connect to the servo amplifier, it only connects to the CSMIO, unless there is another encoder built into the old bridgeport servo's?? I'll go an check the cables in the workshop

I have changed the steps per on the motor tuning and setup page, oddly this made no difference

Sorry yes, y axis looks to be ok apart from scale being wrong

No, I haven’t . Where is that setting?

I load the plugin configuration, click on the y axis, then under index homing is encoder pulses/Rev, I've changed this figure but it makes no difference. Am I in the correct place?

ok, so it looks like the encoder was faulty, I've now changed the encoder and index homing is now working.....ish!

Now I have a new problem, The machine doesn't home in the middle of the Y Axis anymore. My thought is this is becuase the new encoder has a different number of pulses per revolution compared to the old one. The old one had a 1250 PPR. This is my new encoder, (which is the same as I use on my z axis, which works perfect) https://www.cui.com/product/resource/amt10.pdf

Where in the software do I change the PPR to the new figure, I assume is 2048 ppr?
