Mach4 Plugins / Mach 4 says ESS not connected
« on: July 13, 2020, 01:26:27 PM »
Hi there,

Currently I'm trying to config my ESS and Mach 4, but when I hit the config and go to the ESS plugin, it keeps saying that "it does not appear that you are connected to the ESS board." I have checked with the SCU software from Warp9, and it is receiving successful pings, and the board is receiving power just fine. I have also switched out the Ethernet adapter cable, and its the same result. The upper green light LED on the ESS is also just doing 2 short blinks (nothing else).

I am not sure what else to do here to fix this, anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,


Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on a 2.2 Kw spindle that has either UL or CSA approved certification? We're trying to build a CNC for our professor, and if anyone has previously bought one and could link it, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,


Thanks for the info, and its fine if I dont wire the enables?


Hi there,

Currently I'm trying to wire my MB3 breakout board and Clearpath servo motor through the Cpm-Cable-Ctrl-Mu120 Cable provided by Teknic. I understand how to wire the step and direction, and  I'm not wiring the enables because I have an E-stop and limit switches. I'm not sure where the wire the HLFB+ and HLFB-.

Does anyone with more experience be willing to help me understand the best way to wire these, as I am a little confused looking at the manual.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,


Heres the current configuration of the ESS for a visual.

Thanks again,


I wasn't aware that I had to have the ESS jumpers in a certain configuration. Currently all three jumpers are open. The power is connected correctly, and the fuse is still white.



So i tried connecting my power supply to the breakout board and ESS, and the board just wont turn on. Does anyone know why this is?

I'm putting which power supply im using along with all the equipment below.

-Wire Gauge - 16
- Power Supply - OMRON S8FS-G15024C 24V/6.5 Amps
- MB3 breakout board with ESS

I checked and made sure its outputting 24 volts to power the MB3, but it just wont turn on, is it because I'm using 16 gauge wire?

Any input would be appreciated,
