one more idea:

pls doublecheck that the port and pin you have configured is nowhere else used in Input configuration.

i have tested this Little GCode:

F50
S0
G1 X0 Y0
M3
G1 X10 Y0

here:

i have two situations tested

1. run Programm without THC ON Signal -> machine waits after M3 until THC ON is high.
2. run Programm with THC ON allready high -> Machine start's M3 immediately (after CW Delay Spin Up time)

so i am a little bit out off ideas now.

BTW Config ->Ports&Pins -> Spindle Setup -> Special Option's are all disabled ?

this is the only part witch is  urgent for now:

Notes:
 When in THC mode, motion will not begin until THCON (Torch OK) signal becomes active.

How can I make sure of this? Any if that’s the case then why won’t Mach wait for it when’s THC ON isn’t enabled?

don't ask i haven' done the Software for that THC controll in Mach

What is my M3 MACRO? Sorry.

here a part of Mach3Mill_Install_Config Manual Appendix A Torch Height Controls
in Mach3

Notes:
• Turning spindle ON sets the THC correction to zero. Min/Max step counts are then effective from
the current Z.
• Only licensed versions can enable THC mode.
• When in THC mode, motion will not begin until THCON (Torch OK) signal becomes active.
Motion may be delayed by Pierce Delay.
• Pierce Delays tells the system not to move until delay seconds have passed since spindle (torch)
was turned on.
• Config/spindle Torch AutoOff setting shortens delay in takeoff, and also turns off torch automatically
if motion stops.

are you sure THC ON is comming when Plasma fires ?
Mach will wait for this signal until it starts X/Y

ok made a test on my mill (cs-lab Motion Controller)

what i did:
1. loaded Plasma Screen
2. configured three Inputs Torch ON - Torch UP - Torch DWN
3. Turnen THC ON (Programm run Screen), also set Config -> Ports&pins -> Mill Option -> Allow THC up/down
4. Set THC Min and THC Max to -20 and +20 (mm i am working in metric, therefor i had to modify Screen dro's to see the sign)
5. then i was able to drive Z axis up and down within THC Max / Min range

hope it helps.
Thomas

BTW are you running Mach3 in Demo? remember that THC is not working in DEMO, but can't find this anymore.
