Stirling just make sure you explain what happens during an outage IF you get caught in the bad cycle where the Gen is spooling down after resyncing to the grid and a power outage reoccurs and the transfer attempts to transfer BACK to the Genset with it spoiling down. Especially IF you are below 10hzs on the genset.

Stirling Not Hardly, you are still invited to the party  I very much admire you for your programming skills. That is something I cannot do, don't have the logic gene it takes to do it.

IAN , if you want to work on a mach PORS (power outage recovery system) It would be GREAT new Mach feature for the mach tool box.

You are the VB code geewiz,  (;-) TP

IAN many years back this is how we did it in mach. I dug up part of the discussion. It was a very simple approach back then. It does assume you had accurate home switches.

Re: Power outage macro –


We call it the ARF ( Auto Restart FUnction)

It is a piece of code that runs in the Macropump

Every () minutes open the Restart file and write the Program name AND current
line. Close file


If you need to restart press the ARF button which

REFHOME the machine, Retreives the LAST notes from the restart file, Loads the
program by name, Then update the RUN FROM HERE line # DRO and restarts the
program run by use of the "RUN FROM HERE" function.

The only thing the operator has to do is when the RFH screen pops up is verify
there is a clear path for the machine to return to the restart position and
press Cycle Start.

THis is the link to the stop restart function with the plasma.   NOTE plasma does NOT require you to use the RFH feature so it may NOT apply to very situation. In plasma all you need to do is set next line and fire the torch then RUN.

Also note that teh RFH does not work worth a hoot with plasma when using the Zref routines for THC.


IF you have some more ideas throw the  bone on the porch and us old dawgs will chew on it for a while


Just a thought, (;-) TP
