General Mach Discussion / Re: Mach3 crashes using LPT but not USB
« on: July 01, 2016, 08:26:06 AM »
Hi - I've already removed all the plugins except the Flash-Flashscreen plugin (is that needed?). Never had any apart from the UC100 - and that is gone now

I heard there was a list of compatible PCI LPT cards, anyone know where? I might try adding one.

thanks

Hi sorry mean't to say the drivertest comes back perfectly with an excellent result.

I was wondering what the recommended settings were for the LPT port? e.g ECP, EPP using an interrupt or not?

thanks

Aditionally - I have changed absolutely nothing else! Literally a switch between USB and LPT1

General Mach Discussion / Mach3 crashes using LPT but not USB
« on: July 01, 2016, 05:55:12 AM »
Hi, I until recently have been using a UC100 usb notion controller. However due to technical problems have had to go back to using the LPT1 port.

When using the USB I could leave the mahine on for days or weeks without a single problem, howveer since changing to back the LPT1 the WinXP machine crashes (locks up completely) at least once every 24 hours.

Using:
Mach3  062 
LPT1 0x378  ECP mode
25000hz

Anuy ideas?

thanks
Rimmel

Update - the team from cncdrive (people who make the UC100) have contacted me and are running tests on a lathe test bench system.

I knew they would - these people are very good with support of their customers

Hi Rich

True, not enough info at the start. But consider the poor novice who doesn't even KNOW what info is needed.
(I am sure I was like that at the start too.)

Cheers

Well even if 100% of the info wasn't provided it helped me get to the bottom of the problem AND understand the system a bit more. Isn't that what forums are all about? It sure helped me - especially the threading diagnostics.

thanks to all.

Blimey! That IS a new one on me!
Oh well ... onwards. Much pride in solving the problem.
Cheers

Me too - never had a problem with the UC100 apart from at one point it didn't support G04 in ms - so when you added the line "G04 1000" the UC1000 translated it as 1000 seconds! I did contact the manufacturer on that occassion and they sorted it out (I think, as I started not using MS). But they knew about it and put me on the right path, so if something can be done with the UC100 I am sure they will sort it.

That is IS that is the problem of course - but for me removing the UC100 fixes it immediately.

thanks again
Rimmel

After having a lightbulb moment I realised I am using a motion controller for the breakout board - it's a UC100. Now if I remove the UC100 then the problem vanishes (tested for 2 hours and could not replicate the problem - more than 60 .tap interations). Reconnected the UC100 and within 6 interations of the .tap program it errored again.... and again :-( Disconnected and all good again.

The UC100 is on the latest everything (firmware, plugin etc) - I have contacted the manufacturer but no reply as of yet. I do like the UC100, it makes everything really snappy - but at present I cannot use it.

Thanks for all the input and sorry for not realising I had the UC100 installed (it's very small and I am getting older is my only defense).

thanks
Rimmel
