Matty Zee,

In one of the post you wrote "Many of these VFDs are missing relays, temp sensor etc, maybe yours is missing the RS485 transceiver chip?"   I have looked throw the VFD and I am missing the "Multi-Output FC FA FB relay" and their is a location on the first board that is missing a surface mount semiconductor chip"  Do you or anyone know the location of the RS285 transceiver chip.  Another question is does any one have a schematic for this device?  I made the changes you suggested last night and Mach sent 01 03 01 08 F1 8E and received 7F 7E 7F.  Another interesting thing is a few seconds after pushing the spindle button I received a E-stop.

What setting do you have for VFD register PD164?

The E-stop is normal plugin behaviour if the comms fails. If it doen't receive a confirmation of the message it sends, the safest thing to do is e-stop so the machine doesn't plunge the spindle into your wood if its not spinning.

I find it hard to believe that the "01 03 08 F1 8E" is all the plugin is sending. are you sure there isn't more data being sent?

Hi Matty
I have tried many times to get your plug-in to work, but every time I try to put the plugin into Mach3, it comes up with a screen saying "Plugin defective - load again"
Needless to say, I have re-downloaded your zip file at least half a dozen times, and tried each time but with the same result.
I have tried 'saving'then unzipping the file, and 'run'from the download site - same result.
Has anyone else had this problem, or have any suggestions?
Cheers
Noel  ???

rtfm  :P
Requirements
In addition to the DLL, the plugin requires the Microsoft .NET 3.5 distribution. It can be downloaded here as full redistribution.
http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/0/e/20e90413-712f-438c-988e-fdaa79a8ac3d/dotnetfx35.exe

that should fix your issue

bolingerbe, i'm not sure whats going on with your problem. It seems although your receiving a couple of bytes, i think that may just be noise or something (0x7,0x7E are 0b01111111 & 0b01111110). Double,triple check your baud rate, your wiring and VDF register settings. You need to get it working so that it displays the correct values for PD001 & PD002 in the setup dialog.

Matty Zee,

Once again thanks for your assistance.  I made some voltage measurements with a volt meter, and O-scope and it appears that my converter dead out of the box.   I have a few more on the way that where posted as possible working converters.  I will post more when they arrive but they are on the slow boat from China.
