And, how do I make it so that I can enable from pendant (and not have to hold button permenantly)?

i am affraid there is no way to skip this enable button (without linking it inside the pedant), but it is some Kind of safety.

Now - how do I assign emergency stop button in the configuration screens please?

here it starts to get hard for me because i don't have a hicon Controller and don't even use Mach4,
but lets try

Device -> something with Hicon
Input Name -> something like [P14] Input 10

However, it does light up some of the green lights in Diagnostic -> Hicon -> Hicon Status Screen; indicating that I probably have a configuration problem. In TPS's post showing the Hicon Configuration, I don't understand what those settings are (MPG0X, MPG0Y, MPG0inc0, etc.), or why they have been assigned P14 1,3,5,6,4,2,0 ?
MPG0 X, MPG0 Y, MPG0 Z, MPG0 A is the selection of the axis you whant to move
MPG0 Inc0, MPG0 Inc1, MPG0 Inc2 is the step distance you whant to move (0,001 0,01 0,1 1mm...)

P14 1,3,5..... are the physical Inputs from Hicon where your Hardware signals (pedant Signals) are wired zo.

Press the enable button on side of controller (whilst axis selector is in off position) ======= P14 2 lights up
means MPG0 Inc is selected

Press the enable button on side of controller (whilst axis selector is in x position) ======= P14 1 & 2 lights up at same time
means MPG0 X and MPG0 Inc is selected

Press the enable button on side of controller (whilst axis selector is in y position) ======= P14 2 & 3 lights up at same time
means MPG0 Y and MPG0 Inc is selected

Press the enable button on side of controller (whilst axis selector is in z position) ======= P14 2 & 5 lights up at same time
means MPG0 Z and MPG0 Inc is selected

Press the enable button on side of controller (whilst axis selector is in 4 position) ======= P14 2 lights up
means MPG0 Inc is selected but MPG0 A is not selected -> Looks like wiring problem

Press emergency stop button ======== P14 10 lights up
means E-Stop button is wired correctly but is is not assigned at the Moment we will have a look for this later

Turn wheel clockwise ===== P14 9 Flickers
Turn wheel anticlockwise ===== P14 8 Flickers
means the turn wheel seems to bee connected correct

Turn left black knob (OFF x Y Z 4) ======= nothing happens
Turn right black knob (x1 x10 x100) ======= nothing happens

i think you have to press the enable button hold it and turn the knob to see P14 1..x seen changing.

i also think you have to press an hold enable button during Operation.

Code: [Select]
- Vital Systems Hicon Integra MPG06ED at around $400/$450 (I remember the postage and duty for my controller was very high for whatever reason)

IMHO your pedant is a clone of the MPG06ED

Code: [Select]
But here's a question ….
If you plug the Vital Systems Hand-Wheel into the Hicon Integra Controller, don't you then have to configure all the pin inputs in Mach4?

the configuration i posted in REPLY#7 is from Vital System Manual and recomended for MPG06ED and should also work for your pedant.

and this should be the setup

thats how i would wire that thing

back to the Basic question.

if you have a look to this: http://www.machsupport.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/VBScript_Commands.pdf
Manual you will see that VBA and cypress VB script are very simular.

in this Manual: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=3&ved=2ahUKEwjC4uDXyr7iAhVb8aYKHdLyA6gQFjACegQIAxAC&url=https%3A%2F%2Fforum.strojirenstvi.cz%2Fdownload%2Ffile.php%3Fid%3D56730&usg=AOvVaw2suuC-ECkZF7kK6JRlQfjA

you will find all Mach3 specific functions. there are also examples for the most needed things in there.
