ok thank you.
Setup is clear now.

Torch on is on port2 pin1.

i assume when you click Torch ON button (1) on your Screen
-torch ON LED (2) is comming up
-torch ON LED (3) on your TC301 is not comming up ?

can you please post your XML file?
 the Manual says noting about the used Signal, exept
all the torch control is done via LPT port 2.

Thank You

i dont know your System/Hardware, and found no documentation about plasmaroute control box,
but normaly there is an Output (i.E. spindlerelay) witch Switches the cutter on/off (via M3 macro)

so if you post some Information of your box, and some screenshots of ports&pins -> spindle Setup.
also your XML would be helpful.

you can also try to replace this line:


Code "G0 Z1.0" 'retract Z to 1.0 Inch

with:

Code "G91 G0 Z1.0" 'retract Z to 1.0 Inch
Code "G90"

but i am not sure the retract goes into material, or the G31

best way would be to runn the code in VB scripter window,
and step through the code by using the >||, to see where
the fault happens.

btw have you watched the index Input in diagnostic Screen, when
the fault occurs ?

ok there is one important difference in you probing routines:

1. the edge finde Routine

Call SetDRO (2,0.000)
Code "G4 P0.025" 'Pause for Dro to update.
Code "G90 G0 Z.500" 'retract Z to .500 inch

here you set your Z-axis to 0 and the go up to 0.5 (absolute)

2. the z probe

Call SetDRO (2, PlateThickness) 'set the Z axis DRO to whatever is set as plate thickness
Code "G4 P0.25" 'Pause for Dro to update.
Code "G0 Z1.0" 'retract Z to 1.0 Inch

here you set Z-axis to plate thickness (what ever in DRO 1002 is) and the go up to 1 (absolute)

so if DRO1002 >= 1in you will go into material

if you go to diagnostic Screen and have a look for Torch ON Signal.

If THC is on M3 macro is waiting for this Signal.
