VB and the development of wizards / Re: vba and vb-differences

back to the Basic question.

if you have a look to this: http://www.machsupport.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/VBScript_Commands.pdf
Manual you will see that VBA and cypress VB script are very simular.

in this Manual: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=3&ved=2ahUKEwjC4uDXyr7iAhVb8aYKHdLyA6gQFjACegQIAxAC&url=https%3A%2F%2Fforum.strojirenstvi.cz%2Fdownload%2Ffile.php%3Fid%3D56730&usg=AOvVaw2suuC-ECkZF7kK6JRlQfjA

you will find all Mach3 specific functions. there are also examples for the most needed things in there.

Using my bench PSU at 10v it was giving 2965rpm one way and 2971rpm the other.

It was also creeping with the inputs shorted out.

I ran the auto zero speed set function which killed most of the creep.

Then adjusted the gain to 305rpm/V

It now gives 3000rpm forwards and backwards.

Did it fix the issue?

No :(

are some informations witch might help.

maybe you can contact the guys via PN

the G-Code would be interesting.
maybe there are G0 moves in?

found some german documantation witch says Encoder index pulse is connected to pin15.
but no Information wether port1 or port2.

you can try and error, just set up ports/Pins -> Inputs -> Index to pin15 and
when you turn spindle by Hand you should see something in diagnostic Screen from turn screenset.

happy to see you got it figured out.
so some cover's, some fixtures to get it off and on reproducable and a lot of learning about CNC turning (i think).
good Job  :) :)

did a Little bit of searching. all i found is this pinout:

Pin assignments for the DB 25 male is
Pin        Application             Description
1          RELAY                    Switch output eg (motor on)
2          Direction X axis
3          Cycle X axis
4          Direction Y axis
5          Cycle Y axis
6          Direction Z axis
7          Cycle Z axis
8          4th Axis
9          4th Axis
10        Free
11        References switch Z   
12        References switch Y
13        References switch X
14        RELAY Output eg coolant
15        Reference switch 4th axis
16  - 24  Free
25        OV DC, Earthing

The 9 pin connection pins are as follows for the reference switches
1    X1      Machine point of origin port 1 X Axis
2    Y1      Machine point of origin port 1 Y Axis
3    Z1       Machine point of origin port 1 Z Axis
5    +12V DC
6    X2       Machine point of origin port 2 X Axis
7    Y2        Machine point of origin port 2 Y Axis
8    Z2        Machine point of origin port 2 Z Axis
9    OV DC

but not Information on witch port/pin's the Rotary Encoder will Show up.

maybeyou can run a parallel port test tool like this: http://www.xlentelectronics.nl/LPTTest/LPTTestUtilx64r.htm
and have a look witch Inputs are flashing if you turn the Encoder.

i assume you run at parallel port of your PC

depends on what Hardware (Controller/PP) you are using.
ive us some more Information about your Hardware (Manuals Pictures).

here is my quick and dirty solution, not realy tested for all cases, but i think you can get the idea
