How many microsteps? 200 X 10 TPI = 2000. 2000 X Micostep?=?

1000 but none of that matters yet. Nothing is going to happen until I get the pp working.

The pp port works. I can pulse the pins and they change.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IF WORKING:
So what is the voltage swing for pins 2,3,4,5,6 at the computers PP?
You may find that they are different but just list the high and low,please.

Then please confirm , via your drive manual the min pulse required and also the min volatge required.


Some other settings you need to change or try are in the pic.

I assume that you had Mach open and tried jogging the axis when you did that.
So, for PP port pin 2 & 3, take a voltage reading from pin 2 to ground and also pin 3 to ground ( not at the end of some cable but right at the pc connector), with Mach open. Watch for a change in voltage as you jog the X axis from one direction to the other.

Use the attached XML

I am sorry, use this xml as i have assigned the right and left arrow key for jogging the x axis.

Thanks Hood,

Make the following changes  and try measuring the voltage again.......

Rich, I hate to tell you this but that is the xml you sent. All I did was renamed it and saved it in Mach3. It did make a difference after I set the port to 1. The dir pins are now changing but no motor movement. I will check further tomorrow afternoon.
