Change the valves to 5/2 pulse triggered (4 Outputs).

than the valve stayes in his last Position.


Hi Emil,

at least i would seperate axis Limit Switches (can stay in series) and the E-Stop chain,
create a inustrieal Standard estop circiut (e-stop relay and main power contactor for all Motors).
all this Software e-stop circuits are not save for my mind.


Hello Emil,

fist of all i am happy to se that you make progress.

regarding to your brain's for the eneable conditions, a couple of the signals should
be handled by mach3 not via brain.

all axis limit switches should be declared in port's/pin's input's
E-Stop should be declared in port's/pin's input's
Enable servo controllers should be declared in port's/pin's output's
servo ready signal should be declared in CSMIO plugin
servo reset signal should be declared in CSMIO plugin

so what is left:
vacuum/pressure limit should only stop automatic operation to be able to do something in manual.

for the e-stop you have normaly a hardware circuit with e-stop relay, this estop relay sholud also
switch off  (off delayed), via a bigger contactor, the main power othe drives and spindles.

normaly you get your licence file in a email as attachment,

yust put ( copy or drag and drop, however you want to call it) this file
into c:\mach3 folder.

you normaly get a file named Mach1Lic.dat witch is your licence.

copy this file in your Mach§ folder (witch is normaly C:\Mach3)

and then start Mach3 again.

are you sure that your 24vDC power supply is ok?
a digital Output is not "grabing" 4 Volts normaly.

by the way a normal 24VDC relay will also work with 20V,
but there must be something else wrong.



i am not the modbus Guru, but i think there are code examples for modbus in C avaliable
on the Internet, also here in the Forum is a lot Information how to configure/use
modbus in Mach3 like here:


i am sure one of the modbus guru's here will help with detailed Information

the rest (bring the modbus Register to a dro) is very easy.



you can not send direct into a dro,
but you can shift a modbus register via brain/VB into the dro.



witch format is the serial data,
modbus would help.


Hi BR549,

Just a thought, but it may not be a great idea to continously write to the Gcode buffer in that manner ( ten times per sec).  Maybe Maybe not (;-)

I would write directly to the DRO and quaulify it so that IF it is already set to 2000 ignore the write.

If (DRO) <> 2000 then
    Write to the ( DRO,2000)
End if

thank you, did not think about this.

so the code would be:

If GetDRO(18) <> 2000 then
End if
