Sounds like you better go over your wiring.

Hi
Servo config will move the servos.
Power down servodrives. Very important. The drives don't like hot plugging
Plug usb tuning cable into drive.
Power up drive
You will see all the drives you have connected with usb cables listed in the servo config window.
Click on drive you want to move or tune.
Click on connect to drive.
You will get a data loaded from drive message or something to that effect.
Go to pid tuning. Set your parameters. Click on download. when you click on analyze it should move. If it doesn't then you have wiring issues or or soothing else beyond my knowledge! Also when tuning Balazs said to make sure you have a full rotation of the servo when your tuning.

Don't be afraid to contact Balazs directly. He is really helpful. There is often a slight lag because of the time difference but he has always gotten me straightened out. Which is why I know it's a bad idea to hot plug the drives!

Hi
I'm running these drives. I have a post over at CNC zone you may want to check out.

I'm very satisfied with them.

I've had nothing but great results with my Dugong drives
You'll be very happy.  The tuning software rocks.  One thing to watch out for is hot plugging the usb cables into the drives. They don't like that. Power down the drives first.

Well neither of those ideas made a difference but thanks for the suggestions. Before I try a clean install I'm going to post this over at the yahoo group.

Thanks

Try using the standard Mill screen and see if it still happens. I have simulated with your xml and both homing and verify will move the Y axis in the negative direction according to the DRO.

I'll give it a try and report back.
Thanks for the help

I am afraid I dont have a clue but if you want to attach your xml I will see if I can simulate here and see if I can figure out what the issue is.
Hood

Thanks Hood
I'll send it along on Monday when I'm back at the shop.

Cant think why that would happen if the homing goes the correct way.
When you verify does the DRO also show it going the wrong way?
Have you restarted Mach after your changes?
Hood

Yes I always get the weird ones!

I restarted, and changed the axis direction back and fourth and restarted.  The Y axis DRO counts in the direction of movement so it's commanding it to go Y+. Also the Y will keep going until the other 2 axis touch off and then the Y reports back what ever distance it has traveled as it's error.
I really like the verify feature especially when you make changes to the machine and want to keep an eye on error.

General Mach Discussion / Verify moves Y axis the wrong way

Hi
Verify has been working properly for me for a while now. I just installed new Dugong drives and their BOB. With the new setup I had to reverse the Y axis direction in Homing Limits screen.  When I reference the drive it moves in the proper direction ( Y-) but when I use the verify button it moves in the Y+ which is away from the switch. X and Z work as they should.

Any ideas on this one?

Thanks
Derek
