E-stop not working
« on: October 15, 2010, 03:31:42 PM »
Hello All,

I am having trouble getting the E-Stop to work.
I am using Mach3 and the C10 rev10 board.
On the C10 the input jumper is set across 2-3 for pull-up.
The E-stop is across 10 and 5V.
I have the Z-zero (probe) on 12 and the board ground which is working fine.
In Mach3 pin setup:
E-stop is enabled to Port #1, Pin #10 & Active low
Probe is enabled to Port#1, Pin #12 & Active low

If I change the C10 input jumper across 1-2 for pull-down the E-stop works
and the Z-zero stops working.

I am curious how others have setup their E-stop.
Any help is appreciated,
Dan

Hi Dan,

If you are using pull-up on your inputs then the e-stop should be connected between 10 and GND. If you are using the n.c. contacts on the e-stop then the function will be 'active high' within Mach. (or 'active low' if you are using the n.o. contacts).

Hope this helps.
