General Mach Discussion / mpg ports and pins
« on: January 14, 2010, 06:25:31 AM »
i have been having problems with mach turn and an mpg. i had a mpg connected to a pokeys , in ports and pins /mpg/ had port 10  pin 1 for A.port 10 pin 2 for B.decided to use pport  instead and so chose port 1 pin 10 for A. port1 pin 11 for B.so i save and works properly. when mach is shut down and restarted, the configuration of the pokeys, port 10 is there.if wont stay changed to port 1.

thanks Scott, i have used the pokeys screenset and seen the tick counter working properly. i have had the mpg working , but only sometimes.close mach3, restart does not work. restart mach3, mpg works properly. although i find that the mpg is not as responsive and a bit of lag as compared to being connected to the parallel port. i have a lathe panel that i have been trying to make with all buttons and functions completely run by pokeys, with the exception of estop.just plug in usb and install. works very well.

PoKeys / mpg and pokeys plugin
« on: December 27, 2009, 04:57:04 PM »
i have the latest pokeys plugin installed. have upgraded the firmware to the latest from poscope.i have fast encoders enabled. when checking raw encoder output in the pokeys software , i get good fast encoder response. when mach3 is started, checking io of the pokeys, sometimes shows output , sometimes not. i have the mpg enabled in ports and pins, port 10 pin 1 for a, port 10 pin2 for b.
in the pokeys plugin config, encoder1 is set as mpg4.am i supposed to have a brain running for this to work? is the modio brain need to be enabled?

is the index led supposed to blink on off all the time when the spindle is turning? i have it flashing on about 5-6 times , then going off, then randomly lighting. i have rpm readings from 100-3000 rpm. my spindle motor is driven by ab impact vfd, takes step pulse for speed. i can enter into the spindle speed 1345 and the spindle rpm is being read by the spindle sensor as 1345 +- 1rpm so i know that the spindle sensor is working properly. this is by 2 parralel ports, cnc4pc bboards, and cnc4pc index pulse board.

i have tried reinstalling the latest version , still the same. tried using smoothstepper, still the same. reason i am concerned the index is not working properly in mach, and have been having problems threading.
