Do you think adding a video card would possibly fix that issue? There is a two week wait for SS.


I just ran a drive test on it and at 25k, 35k, 45k and 60k and very clean, Which is pointing more to the parallel card. The C10 Breack out board doesn't have any Opto Iso on it I have a Bob Campbell board on the way. And I put a Smooth stepper on oder but they are two weeks out. I Shoud have my new Parallel card tomarrow I will try it on the computer tomorrow.

Thanks for everyones input, Wayne

I forgot the Xml File

General Mach Discussion / I beleive this is a PC Hardware Conflict
« on: June 23, 2008, 01:41:23 AM »
I have been using Mach for 3 years now on many machines I have built three Hotwire, 3 Router tables and 1 and a half water jet, the half is the one that's eating me starting at my brain.

Here's the problem I have a industrial PC (from China) It's got a built in Keyboard and flat screen LCD PC has On board Video and the parallel port is out putting 3.3v but I have a C10 breakout board. All of the inputs and relay outputs are working fine. I have the A is slaved to the Y axis with matching gear rack, motors, gears, drives (Y and A have separate drives) I'm using G340s (Step multiplier x 5) with 500 Cnt Encoders. on 50:1 Planetary gear boxes so I need 5000 steps per rev. and 150 Vel, and accel 30 Motors were tunned with a Oscilloscope with a pulse generator at 40 msec pulse rate

Checked, double checked, Constupid checked the Configuration I had the kernel set at 25k and increased it to 45k in which improved when it was set to 25k if I hit the arrow key for x axis jog the A axis jogged roughly and error-ed out the G340s after 1/4 th of an inch of travel, Y axis jogging moved the X and Y and error-ed out the Geckos after and 1/8 th of an inch and racked the gantry. I had a G100 on this but had too many conflicts with the Chinese computer.

But now I'm at wits end. I have the following in the XML file:
 Axis   Port    Step Pin     Dir Pin
 X          1          2           3
 Y          1          4           5
 A          1          6           7

As I said I get complete limit, E-Stop, and Input#1 checking good.

I have a PCI 32 bit multi I/O parallel port card coming from http://rogersmachine.net/PCIport.html but what else could cause such a problem, Oh I forgot to mention that I was jogging on 5% of 150 inches per minute when it was wigging out any higher and it errors instantly.

I'm posting the xml file.

I pulled the Computer out of the machine and brought it home. Every thing was great and I thought every thing was perfect, until I took it back out to the machine and connected back up with the "G100" yes that's right I thought all along it was the PC and Keyboard the G100 has never had any problems connecting and running the motors but ever since I started using this particular G100 It has been a beast from hell. I have it running on another router and it runs fine but this one is just eating me alive, it's on a water jet. The problem of feed rate wont increase and "Stop" shuts down the outputs but continues to run the code, Ive notice the lockdown version has it's issues too. So I installed the latest development version. I just bought another C11 - Multifunction CNC Board from MachMotion (over nighted) I'm thinking after all I have read about the Grex I will not buy any more.

I found the problem with the "run from here" issue it's a good thing that I had a copy of my Lic. file after installing reinstalling over and over I deleted the intire Mach3 Dir. Thank heavens for this forum

Strange thing happened I changed the Keyboard and the Stop button worked correctly and the feed override worked correctly, but the “Run From Here” doesn’t work now. This I really need.

Thanks, Wayne
