No pulse line box
« on: December 28, 2009, 04:39:43 PM »
When running driver test it says excellent, but there in no line in the box.  the pulse per second is 12305.  Sorry if this has been asked before but I could't find it.  Thanks Jimmy.

Try the special driver and see if that helps. It is in the Mach3 folder and double clicking it will install it, if you need to go back to the normal you will also see that in the Mach3 folder and again double clicking will install it.

Thanks for the quick reply.  I took another look and there is a line,  it is off the scale.  I can see some spike coming down from the top.  How can I get the line in the box.  Thanks, Jimmy

What do you have your kernel set to? I have never seen the line being outwith the box so dont really know what to advise.
Have you tried to see if your motors are working correctly the way it is?

With kernel at 25, pulses are roughly around 40 us so if your speed is 12,305 it would put you up around 80...at the top of the window wouldn't it ?

I have the kernal set to 25.  The motors do not run.  This is a new build and are just starting to try and get the motors to run.  Thanks, Jimmy

I'm not good with computers but I think it is 1600MHz.  I know it is old.

That should be plenty for Mach, min requirements is 1,000MHz. Memory is also important.
