ref all home setup
« on: September 04, 2010, 09:37:03 AM »
Hi, this newbie needs help. Have fitted limit switches and all work OK. However when I press the "ref all home " button nothing happens.The machine should go to all switches as I understand it. Any help would be appreciated.

Do you have the home switches enabled under Port & Pins -> Input Signals?

Hi, yes the switches work fine, they stop the machine and show in the diagnostics page. Its just that the ref all home won`t work ! :'(

You say they work fine and stop the machine.  That implies that they are properly enabled as "Limit" switches.  However, I believe, if they are not enabled as "Home" switches, you will see no motion when you press "Ref All".

On the Ports and Pins -> Input Signals page I mentioned before.  Are the "X Home", "Y Home" and "Z Home" enabled with valid Port and Pin numbers?

Have you checked this, and a reload of mach may help but make sure you either save the xml or know the settings.
