I don't know how to do that, it doesn't work.

So I don't think you will SEE the inputs from mach  ?????

Just a thought(;-) TP

But the proper wire connections, should light the probe LED on the Mach diagnostic screen.

Can you post (or email me) the probing script you are using within Mach.
Tweakie.

Yes, but I don't know what a probing script is. Tell me how to find it, and I'll get it to you.

That is where I am connected. The probe input on the MPU11.  H3 Pin 6, Mechanical Probe input, and H3 Pin 5, Probe Return.
When I run the CNC11 program to check the pin connection, it says that H3 Pin 6 is input 769, not 481 as it should be.
The MPU11 I/O map doesn't have an input 481. It starts at 769 and goes to 786.

I have tried to contact Ajax, they do not respond. They have been no help at all.
There installation manual has conflicting data. The I/O mapping numbers change.
The fiber optics do form part of the probe connection, from the MPU11 to the DC310B.
Thank you for the reply
I will keep trying

Thank you for the reply
My Ajax board connects with an ethernet cable, not thru the parallel port. The Ajax board has a plug on the board marked "probe", its connections are at pin 10, +12volt, and Pin 5, -12volt. I ran another software program (CNC11) and the LEDs on its diagnostic screen showed I was connected to the right pins. When I restart Mach 3, the LEDs won't light. I can't check the continuity of the wiring because it uses fiber optics. I'm not sure how to contine.

Well I did, that's the problem. The LED didn't light up, so I need to know why. I verified the wiring with another program. It showed contact on the right pins. When I go back to Mach, it does not light the LED on the diagnostic screen.

Yes, the I/O map shows my connection as pin 10. In ports and pins, I enabled probe, and set pin to 10.
Is there any way to verify what pin Mach is seeing, besides the LED on the diagnostic screen? Whould the connection show in the XML file?

I'm trying to hook up a probe to the probe input on my Ajax running Mach3. I can't get a responce on the LEDs on the diagnostic screen. I'm not sure where to go from here.

If you do go with ajax, I would be happy to help you get it going.
