M03 Won't turn my spinle on MO5 works fine
« on: October 18, 2009, 03:02:27 PM »
I'm a newbie, so take it easy on me!  My geode contains the code to turn the spindle on (M03-Colombo 5hp), but when I hit cycle start, it doesn't start the spindle.  I've been stating the spindle manually.  At the end  of the program, my spindle will shut off on the M05 code.  Anybody have any idea's what the issue is and how I can resolve it?  BTW, the S word appears before the M03 command as well. 

All other spindle operations seem to work fine.  The spindle button on the screen works fine.

Thanks!

Gary

You have to map the M3/M4 commands to Mach's logical output numbers and map the output pin that should turn on your spindle to the same Output. Look under Config->Ports&Pins. You will be interested in the Spindle tab and Output tab.

BTW, also look at the Support tab on this for for Documentation. Download the Mach manual. It has all the info you will ever need on configuring the spindle.
Happy machining , Jeff Birt
