General Mach Discussion / Re: Help Needed on Debounce
« on: June 04, 2011, 08:31:37 AM »
Tweeky thanks the reason I asked so specifically regarding Rc is I have a lot of these lying around from the Old RC days they are ceramic and will fit these for a matter of course and try again after checking wiring. Do you think the length of cables could be an issue???

Also looking on the forum about infomation on fitting limit switches...

Thanks Chaps I also think it is noise but going to check wiring to the emergecy off switch,  I am going to run mach and see if the request still happens (without running mill and cutting obviously)
if the request still comes back then theres issues . because the way my mill is placed I have to have long wires to the control box could this also be causing the problem?? TWEEKIE I also was thinking about putting some type of filters on and I think it would be better on than off. I don't know nothing about electronics but in RC Racing I used to use 0.1 Microfad capacitors on dc motors to stop noise are these what you talking about..

I have a new system and put mach on - the problem is the  stop keeps lighting up and stopping everything debounce was set at 3000 so I uped it to 4 still not good then uped it to 5000 and sstill trigers happen  ruffly every 4-5 mins I thought 5000 was as high as I should go unless you all know different, and I thought this might have an underlying problem.

p.s pc has  an atom processor built onto the board.


About to build a small footprint PC with a Dual core Atom Processor,  this is purely to run mach,  space is a premium so ITX offers the size BUT it has only 1 expansion slot (pci) and one  parallel port. it has on board Graphics and this is my worry. do people tend to have problems with on board G.cards. I could fit a pci G card BUT if I run 4th axis would I need another parallel port and run into a dead end.

General Mach Discussion / Probing Software
« on: October 18, 2010, 01:43:39 PM »
Hi I am about to purchase a Probe from Arnie,  can anyone point me in the right direction for the best software to use with the Probe. Also a bit confused as to the procedure in using the probe, does the software automatically reference the sides of the component you want to probe etc. Any help and suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

 8) I know this is daft but what is screen 4. I use my shuttle pro to set up my machine like jog-feed zero axis etc. and have used a screen set called sim soft BUT this does not give me the controll I am afte,r so the Mach screen is back if I could call the jog screen (tab) this would be very useful.. thanks for you help any thoughts..
