First Time Setup and I am losing my mind
« on: July 20, 2010, 02:31:57 AM »
I am running there KL-G540 setup with Mach3 on a Vista 32bit.


I have tried the XML files from the gecko website, keling website, and tinkering around I cannot get it to come out of reset. I get a estop requested message. I know the port and pin are correct with 1 -15 in the setting. Also in the diagnostic page in Mach the m1home - m4home have a yellow box next to them. I turned the limits off to get rid of this,


Anyway went through all the wiring 5 times already and everything is wired correctly.

When the charge pump is off the motors lock. And the estop will fault when pressed.

Also the lpt port is set to epp and is running properly. and I have the correct port set in mach. I just do not know where to go from here. Any help will be great

Is the E-Stop LED showing on the diagnostics page? If it is change the active state of it in Ports and Pins and see if that helps. If you can now get out of Reset then first thing is push the E-Stop to make sure it works after changing the active state.

The led is blinking???!!!

The estop came wired like the following.

10 connects to the estop

12 connects to the V- on the psu

Another wire connects to the other side of the estop to the V-

I was just playing with the active state when unchecked or in high it blinks when in low state it blinks faster!!

Thanks for all your help Hood it really is appreciated.

Attached is the schematic and the xml file and a link to the controller I purchased.

http://www.kelinginc.net/ControlSystem.html it is package F

Also pins 1-9 on the g540 are going to a db9 port and nothing is connected to this port. I am about ready to just disconnect all those wires.

Your pdf doesnt seem to have uploaded correctly, while I have a look at your xml  I am wondering though if you have the patch for Vista installed?
