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.

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

I got Z axis running under test mode, making movement up / down and recognizing itself in mach3. What is M1 home m2 home and m3 home? My M3 Home is lit up with torch on, m1 Home is lit with torch up, m2 home is lit up with torch down.

M1 M2 M3 home are the home liit Switches from X Y and Z axis.
so it Looks like you have  configured home Limits (Config -> Ports&Pins -> Inputs) to the same port and pin like the torch signals.

Should it be toggled on flashing?

ok just to confirm wiring:

power supply V+ -> G540 terminal 11
power supply GND -> G540 terminal 12
power supply GND -> Proma terminal COM
Proma terminal UP -> G540 terminal 1
Proma terminal DWN -> G540 terminal 2
Proma terminal ARC -> G540 terminal 3

Mach3 Config -> Ports & Pins -> Inputs
THC ON       - Enabled checked - Port 1 Pin 12
THC UP       - Enabled checked - Port 1 Pin 10
THC DOWN - Enabled checked - Port 1 Pin 11

Mach3 1024 Screen set -> diagostics -right hand side about middle

there are three LED's Torch ON , Torch UP , Torch Down

put just for test a wire from

power supply GND -> G540 terminal 1

now Torch Up LED should be on.
