are you running Constant Velocity or Exact Stop mode?

to call a macro within a macro is a nogo in Mach3, i think it is written somewhere in the documantation.

a good alternative is to us the #expand instruction of cypress.

for example create a file mylibary.m1s in your macro Folder, put some code (Sub's or function's) in:

Code: [Select]
Public Sub DoThis()
MsgBox "Sub DoThis was called"
End Sub

Public Sub DoThat(ByVal X as Long,ByVal Y as Long)
MsgBox "Sub DoThat was called with parameter X: " + CStr(X) +" parameter Y. " + CStr(Y)
End Sub
Public Function DoThiswithreturn (ByVal X As Integer) As Boolean
If X > 100 Then
DoThiswithreturn = true
DoThiswithreturn = false
End If
End Function  

put at the end of your macro witch whants to use this routines this:

#Expand <\..\..\macros\Mach3Mill\mylibary>

sample for macro would be:

Code: [Select]
Sub Main
Dim RetValue As Boolean


DoThat 1,2

RetValue = DoThiswithreturn(50)
MsgBox RetValue

RetValue = DoThiswithreturn(150)
MsgBox RetValue
End Sub

#Expand <\..\..\macros\Mach3Mill\mylibary>  

you can use this exand in all macros witch whant to use the same routines.

should be OEMDro(3)

ok sounds like you have all 'basic' tests allready done.
maybe you can give me some more detailed Information about your wiring,
just  to confirm. (ok i know that is "i know every better mode")
all that sounds like a grounding (0V) Problem.


for a test would be good to connect a potentiometer (10k) to tha analog Input
and measure the voltage there.

no sure i foud the right Manual, but the one i found is talking about a
analog Input select Switch for 0-10V and 4-20mA.
