General Mach Discussion / Re: CSMIO / IP Probing fails

you have to have a real Hardware Input on the Controller, Simulation via keyboard will and can not work,
because the probing is running on the Controller.

you can also post your code, if you want.

sometimes 4 eyes see more than 2. ;)

only possibilty witch is left, that your x- probe Routine is not ok, or?

ok you are doing a Referenz on index pulse.

means the ref Limit Switch is very secondary.

reference on index pulse means go t reference Switch reverse direction and look for the next Zero pulse of Encoder.

it has done this before and it's an easy fix, just flip the belt round one step on the pulley and re-ref = all ok.

this teels me that you have a seperate Encoder for Feedback Loop, witch is belt driven.

ok if you shift this belt for one step, it is "normal" that yor home pos shifts as well (index pulse !!)


yes you have to set yout Motor outputs as well

port 1
Pin 2: X Axis Step (active low)
 Pin 3: X Axis Dir (active low)
 Pin 4: Y Axis Step (active low)
 Pin 5: Y Axis Dir (active low)
 Pin 6: Z Axis Step (active low)
 Pin 7: Z Axis Dir (active low)

i found some Information about your Controller, but anyway you will Need a prallel to parallel cabel,
parallel to usb will not work i think.

seams to be very simular.

that's what i found in the gali pluging Manual:

The Galil PlugIn is capable of using a probe for various probing
functions. This is accomplished using the Galil high speed position
latch functions. Unfortunately, the latch inputs share general purpose
inputs on the Galil ICM. Galil axes A, B, C, and D use inputs 1, 2, 3,
and 4 and Galil axes E, F, G, and H use inputs 9, 10, 11, and 12 for the
latch inputs.
IMPORTANT!!!! A probe should be wired to ALL latch inputs for any
moving axis on your machine! For example, if you have a 3 axis mill
and you are using Galil axes A, B, and C to drive them, then the probe’s
output should be wired to inputs 1, 2, and 3. This is because the G31
probe command will move in all 3 dimensions. If you have 3 axis mill
with a 4th axis rotary driven from Galil axes A, B, C, and D, then the
probe’s output should be wired to inputs 1, 2, 3, and 4.
When setting up Mach for probing, it is imperative that the “Probe”
signal is enabled in “Ports and Pin” on the “Input Signals” tab and the
port and pin should be mapped to one of the Galil latch input pins. For
example, if your 3 axis mill uses Galil axes A, B, and C to drive Mach
axes X, Y, and Z, then the probe’s output signal should be wired to Galil
inputs 1, 2, and 3 and the Mach Probe signal should be enabled and
mapped to port 1, and one of pins 25, 26, or 27. Which pin is mapped
really does not matter since all of the inputs will be active upon a probe

you have to set in ports&pins->Inputs the Probe to the port and pin your probe is wired to.
than check in dignostic Screen for the digtize ledto go on, when yur probe is hit.

have you tryed:

value = GetInput(XX)
