SmoothStepper USB / Smooth Stepper Times Out.
« on: August 17, 2009, 03:33:53 PM »
I have a smooth stepper and if I am moving to a position and in mach, and at the same time click on say the homing/limits(tool table but can be any menu item) the Smooth stepper loses communications.
could this be the PC too slow?
celeron 2.4 gig
2 gig RAM
gforce mx video card

dose it matter if its usb 2.0 or 1.1?

Also when I get timeout error and rest wont clear it and have to restart mach.

any help will be apreciated.

Hi Everyone

I have a small problem with my retorfit, everything is working perfect except for one issue. I am using an MPG4 pendant from cnc4pc into an SS board, step mode works fine but my issue arrives in velocity mode. when press enable and rotate the mpg it works fine speeds up and slows down accordingly, but when i rotate the pendant and release the enable button at the same time the axis keeps moving at that speed without any rotation, if i press the enable button it stops. I know one solution is "dont do that" but it could be rather dangerous if left as is.  I am no way a programmer and did have a look at the brains but i think the problem is in the area on the input where it is based on the condition (ismoving) it don't seem to check if the enable triggers are still true, far as i can tell, if anyone has an idea it would be greatly appreicated.
