if you just have a look where this New Forum Thread is placed:

Mach4 General Discussion -> New Forum!

you can think about, where the road is going too.

--> keep this Mach3 users out!

i am realy sad that all this mach3 knowledge will got lost, because a Forum without working search
function is just ridiculous.

Lag on CSMIO/Mach3 inputs doesn't allow me to stop the ATC on the cam signal (genevasensor).

made a Suggestion in the other thread

The max current from the cam sensor doesn't allow to drive typical relay directly, so can't use your idea from another thread

cam sensor -> optocoupler -> relay

So, I made a workaround, I'm switching the motor off after 160ms (CW) and 150ms (CCW) after the right tool has been detected.
After that only checking the cam signal.


you sayed it, it is a Workaround but not a solution. see cam sensor -> optocoupler -> relay -> there is allways a solution


This works for 99% of the time, I've added retry if that's not the case, but if something goes really wrong it will end up in an infinite loop.
I'll come back to the ATC later.


Workaround -> solution Problem again

hi,
your screenshot (machine) says everything what is wrong.

you are not trying to get the z-axis down, you are traying to do a probe
with radius comp (G41/G42) on.

G41/G42 + Mach3 is a no go (bugs) IMHO

ok i think the Problem is that the Inputs are not updated synchron.

try this code:

Code: [Select]
ToolRdy = false
While(Not ToolRdy)
If GetCsmioIn(BCD1) or GetCsmioIn(BCD2) or GetCsmioIn(BCD4) or GetCsmioIn(BCD8) then
'give the inputs a chance to update
Sleep(150)

'then read the BCD code
ActATCPos = 0
If GetCsmioIn(BCD1) Then
ActATCPos = ActATCPos + 1
End If
If GetCsmioIn(BCD2) Then
ActATCPos = ActATCPos + 2
End If
If GetCsmioIn(BCD4) Then
ActATCPos = ActATCPos + 4
End If
If GetCsmioIn(BCD8) Then
ActATCPos = ActATCPos + 8
End If

If (ActATCPos = (ToolSlot - 1)) Then
ToolRdy = true
End If
End If
Wend

BTW - I have all axis calibrated to less then 0.0005 in all directions except Z in Up direction

that is one of the bad sides if you are living in the imperial world, in the metric world it is more than you want in the Hobby world.

sorry that i have sayed this
