your code will only work, if you are in incremental mode (G91), not if you are in absolute (G90)

simply set a OEMLed in your ATC macro, then macropump is able to check, that ATC macro whants to set the Output
and enable it.

glad to hear, yout got it working. ;D

first off all, you have to tell us how you start the homing.

by pressing Ref All Home button?

so if you are able to set PWM Output to OEMDRO(1200) code for macropump would be:

Code: [Select]
If GetOEMDRO(817) <= 8000 then
End If

ok i try to explai, how i do it.

you have your XYZ probe and the tool setter. and you have to have a referenced machine.
your XYZ probe is the master tool, let's say tool99.
put a fixed toollength of 100mm in tooltable for tool99.

-now you do a probing with the XYZ probe at the tool setter.
-after probing your read the machine coord for Z-axis and store it in a OEMDRO (for example 150mm)
-anounce tool99 to System by G43H99
-now you can do a z probing of workpice surface with XYZ probe and Zero z for G54

-now insert next tool in this example tool1 and do a probe at tool setter
-let's say tool1 probes at machine coord for Z-axis 140mm

now you know tool1 is 10mm shorter than mastertool99.
fixed toollength of mastertool is 100mm so toollenght for tool1 is 90mm.
now, if toollenght for tool1 (90mm) is entered in tooltable, and toollenght is set
via G43H1 Mach will compensate this.

all this can be done within a macro.

hope i was able to explain the difference between Auto Tool Zero and Tool Lenght Compensation.

it was a Little hard to follow your code, but where are you saving the result of the actual tool hiegt Back to tooltable?

that is all clear, the entire question is, is it possible to map the analog Output to a "free" "custom" DRO, witch can be manipulated?

i have no Experience with Pokeys.
is there a possibilty to map the PWM Signal to a DRO in the plugin Setup.
could not find a good Manual about pwm Setup in the plugin.

If i understand you correctly i wil connect:

3 Input A+ to ZD+
7 Input A- to ZD-
2 Input B+ to ZS+
6 Input B- to ZS-

that is correct

"you will Need to wire Enable+/Enable- do a normal Output"

for example:
Enable+ to 24V on MB3 board
Enable- to Y301 on MB3 board

then go to Config -> Ports&Pins -> Output Signals

line Enable1    activate Enabled , Port ->3 , Pin -> 1
