nice work :D.

if you can emulate the Switches by using optocoupler Outputs, the rest can be done in M3,M4 and M5 macro
easily. if you are usin Mach3 i can help if Mach4 sorry not.

that is a bug i brain Editor.
the brain will run with correct Setting, it only uses Default Settings if you what to reedit the Signal.

accordind to your Picture lets try to get the y-axis running.

Config -> Port's/Pin's -> Motor Outputs -> y-axis
step pin->5
dir pin ->4
both active low enabled

SW5 to SW8 all 0

assuming you want to run your machine in imperial Units and the Motor should make 1 rev/inch
Config > Motor Tuning -> Y-axis
step's per -> 400
velocity -> 80
acceleration -> 40
don't Forget to press the SAVE AXIS SETTINGS button

in this configuration you should be able to run the Motor in jog mode.

General Mach Discussion would have been a better place for this thread.

anyhow some more Information about your System would be helpful.
-what OS are you running
-what motion controller are you using
-what stepper Controller
-witch Mach Version
-how are the Motor connected to your axis
-Pictures Pictures Pictures

with the information provided, it will get realy hard to help without using a magic glasball.

AWG22 sounds very small for Motor cable, there is no reason why not replacing them to bigger ones.

Good morning
(I'm a newbie)
I know this is not a forum for Chinese cnc's. I just can not find help anywhere.
My CNC is a DIY machine made from imported(China) parts and locally sourced parts.
Normally i love to solve my own problems but sometime you hit the roadblock.
MPG that i purchased overseas works fine to some extend (handwheel) works but all the selectors (axis)are dead.
Wiring checked and there should be no problem, but i'm not sure if Mach3 needs extra settings beside MPG enabled(after all it works or not )
Configuration is as follow.
Table size 480mmx480mm (not too big more like a router)
Controller board STB4100 (USB)
Software: Mach3 rev.3.041
Stepper motor boards: TB6600
MPG: Unknown make (Chinese)
I would appreciate if someone could point me to the topic that covers this kind of configuration.
Thank you,
welcome to the Forum. PLS post your Problem in the main Mach3 Forum, not in the New People welcome thread.

1. open Main Menue -> Operator -> VB Script Editor

2. copy/paste the complete code into the Editor

3. use  >|| button to excecute code line by line

4. see what code is doing
