Mist and Flood control
« on: October 06, 2010, 06:31:37 PM »
Both mist and flood control buttons do not activate the relay in our controller with smooth stepper, not sure what would happen if only using the parallel port.

We switched back to the standard Mach screen and all works as it should.

I retested this - works as it should on PP.
flood and mist buttons both turn on the mapped mach logical signals and the corresponding PP pins.

I don't have the SS test bed hooked up at the moment so I could not quickly test the SS.
I'd suspect a SS configuration issue - as both 1024 and MSM make the exact same calls to mach for these functions.

More diagnostic info could be had by trying M7, M8 and M9 via MDI - do those work on the SS?

G'Day Dave,

My fault, had the pins configured incorrectly. All works as it should.
