General Mach Discussion / Re: RPM and counting ?
« on: April 02, 2010, 01:25:34 AM »
I am running into a similar situation.  I have a spindle sensor that I added onto my lathe CNC conversion and am having trouble getting it working.  The sensor requires 12 volts to power it and since I do not have a 12 volt source on my board (Hobby-CNC driver board) I am using an old PC power supply.  I have power going to the sensor and I have the "normally closed" wire going to pin 10.  The sensor also has a "normally open" wire which I am not using currently.  I can get a signal to show in my diags screen but Mach3 is not getting feedback from the sensor some how.  It does not show the Limit opening and closing when I rotate the spindle.  I attached a pic of the sensor, any ideas fellas?  Thanks!!

Well that didn't work either.  The driver test failed.  It ran the preparation fine but when it initiated the driver test it crashed the VM.  Not sure what is going on but it sucks!  If anyone has it working in XP mode on Windows 7 I would love to see your VM settings.

One thing I did not do in my 64 bit version at home was run all the windows P updates.  I am trying this on my work machine but it is a 32 bit machine so this may be an unfair test, we'll see.

I tried running Mach 3 in Windows XP mode and when I start up the program the VM crashes.  I am able to run the driver test just fine but I just cannot get Mach 3 loaded.
