hi ray,

i have no schematics jet. i think you best start with the interfaceboard wich you would like to use. the berger lahr drives need a supply too. if you have the components you can connect them together and see if the drives will work.

thanks

hi anyone,

i think my problem is solved (with help of ron). using only "T5" on the MDI line starts the M6start macro. but the toolnumber is not interpreted correctly by the m6start macro. typing "M6 T0505" works well.

hope this will help others.

Hi ron,

I am doing quite well with my ATC for my emcoturn120 but i hope you can spend a little more time for me. my code is actually working completely as a button script. When I copy the code into the M6start macro, and I type T2 or another T6 request in the MDI the macrocode is executed but…..

If I type T6 in the MDI line, I would like to change to the sixed tool. How can I pick up the wanted toolnumber in my m6start code. As soon as I type T6 and the M6start.m1s is executed the “newtool=getselectedtool()” is forced to zero.

i did a little test with the next instruction in the M6start macro;

MsgBox ("newtool = " &GetSelectedTool())

if i type T3 in the MDI line, the m6start runs automatically but the selected tool is resetted to zero.

(i reinstalled mach3 and did no configuration changes; so it is a fresh an clean installation).

i hope you can help me again, i think i am almost there

Thanks for your reply.

hi ron

I AM SORRY, i found the problem. let me explain to you what i did.
i began thinking why the outputs of the second port could be disabled almost immediately after is enabled them. i early day i have been programming PLC's. when that happend in PLC's most of the time i had used the specific register twice. this was exactly what happend i my system. a few months ago a have made some test programs in brains. i used the output 5 and 6 and these programs where still enabled in brains control. i disabled the specific brain and everything works fine now.

i hope it did not keep you awake....

thanks Antoine

hi ron,

you are right. your test program works fine. the problem is in my hardware. u use 2 parallelports; one (LPT1)on the motherboard of the computer and one extra PCI port. the outputs connected to the first port (lpt1) work exactly as they should. but if i use the same program to control the outputs on the second port they just pulse. if i write a VBscript with one line: activatesignal(output6), output6 is high for just a 0.1 second or so.

i don't understand the difference between the two ports?

thanks antoine

hi,

thank you for your reply. I cannot get the code statement working. i open a vb window, type just the commands:

ActivateSignal(Output5) 
Code "G4 P2"

then i compile and run the program. the program ignores the code statement!
another strange thing is that my outputs 1 2 3 and 4 on my first i/o card can be switched on by the statement ActivateSignal(...). the output 5 and 6 just pulse with the same statement. does that has something to do with hardware or has mach trouble with outputs 5 and 6.

thanks
antoine
