I can fire plasma and manually jog, THC runs great. But when I run gcdoe, it dives into material

can you pls post your GCode , maybe something is wrong there.

Torch/code freezes after M03....


That is correct behaviour - the the torch is firing on the M03 signal BUT mach3 is NOT seeing an Arc-Ok signal so it will NOT move at all.

The Proma is either not sending or not seeing the arc-ok.

As a test, go ports&pins and disable Arc-Ok IIRC this should let it move without seeing the signal.

he did this allready see one or two sides before

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 ?

ok your M3 macro is Standard, should be no Problem.

what are your Settings in

Config -> Ports&Pins -> Spindle Setup ->CW Delay Spin Up ?

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.
