when you say indexed the motor- not the encoder end i hope.

LOL, No I just had to index the flange that bolts the servo to the machine. What i don't understand is that it worked before I did the motor work. I tried it on the A-axis and I can't get that to turn the wrong way either.  Strange!!! :)


Thanks,

It's like the "Dir LowActive" isn't working anymore for some reason in config>ports and pins>motor output, for none of my motors. I reinstalled the plugin, but it had no effect.

I trying to get MACH3 ver 3.043.022 (evaluation version) to work with a Galil 2143 with Galil Plugin V4.4.00
So far Galil Plug in config works and jog is able to move my x, y. and z motors
I loaded Roadrunner gcode and clicked Cycle start button, nothing happens
I looked at the GalilDebug.txt. Nothing unusual with : prompt.
However it looks like nothing got sent out after I clicked on Cycle Start button

Will appreciate it very much if I can get some help.. being kind of new, I am at a lost

Many thanks

The jumpers are no longer used. You set the motor type to +/- 2 or +/- 2.5 to select active high or low step and direction.
Please look at "MT" in the manual.

Now, I use a mach3 plugin and I choose the motor type MT = 2.
I can set a mach3 to close loop fuction.
I was not an analog-digital servo motor, I can select the motor type is MT = 1 or not

Closed loop is only valid for a servo system. You must select one of the stepper types in the plugin.

Please help me a little longer. ???
1. I have a digital servo motor.
2. I have a motion control Galil DMC-4143.
3.mach3 software.

I want to make the machine as a close loop.
I've tested as follows.
 - I've set motion drive DMC-4143 by galil tool soft ware (MTA = 2) and set motor type in galil pulgin (Motor type = servo motor) and I jog command from an error on the mach3 then drive DMC-4143.
But if I set motor type in galil pulgin (Motor type step), I used to jog from mach3 it ok. But it was not a close loop.
How do I fix it.

Thanks.
