Any way that I could I get a copy of this special version for testing?

Otherwise I can stick with the Windows 7 64 bit version.  It seems to be working for now.

Correction: It seems to work for the most part, but sometimes I get

Galil Error: a time-out occurred while waitinf for a responce from the controller

Thanks a bunch, it's working great on two machines.  I'll let you know if I have any problems.

I have noticed an intermittent problem.  Sometimes movements in the Y direction just stop being executed.  The other 1425 I helped set up might be having the same problem, but its not near by to test with.


Example:  I can hold down the arrow key, and it will just stop jogging.  If I let go and press it again it will start jogging again.

I swapped the X and Y output and encoder inputs on my Break out box, and the problem switched to the other Axis.  This tells me its a problem in my motion controller or computer.

I swapped to another Galil 1425, and it also had the problem

I made a new profile in Mach3, it still did it.  I checked out galildebug.txt and it showed the proper commands.

I tried the stable and the experimental version of Mach 3, both had the problem.  Then I tried V4.3, V4.4, and the special version of V4.4 of galil.dll that was posted above.  All did the same thing.



Then I tried changing the Axis Mapping in the Galil Plugin.  This is where things get interesting.

When X is mapped to X, and Y to Y, I have intermittent problems with Y's motion stopping.

When X is mapped to Y, and Y to X, when I jog X on the computer, it will move Y on the machine, but only in one direction.  In the other direction it goes about .0002 and stops.

I'm slowly getting this tracked down, but if anyone has any ideas im open to ideas.

After combing through galildebug.txt some more I think I found a bug:

MG_BAB                                                       Slots=000  Response=" 0.0000:"  <ResetControl()>
SP ,30000003000000                                           Slots=000  Response="?"  <ResetControl()>
 Emessage = "6 Number out of range."
FL ,21474836472147483647                                     Slots=000  Response=":"  <DisableSoftLimits() State.nAixs = 2>
BL ,-2147483648-2147483648                                   Slots=000  Response=":"  <DisableSoftLimits() State.nAixs = 2>
GM ,00                                                       Slots=000  Response=":"  <SlaveALL(false)>
GR ,00                                                       Slots=000  Response=":"  <SlaveALL(false)>
DP ,6710151770                                               Slots=000  Response=":"  <ResetControl()>

The comma is in the wrong place on these lines.

I got similar results with all three versions of the Galil.dll that I had access to.  Is this a problem in the DLL or with Mach3?

This has been seen before. I can't remember exactly what caused it, but it was somehow related to there being more than two axes enabled in either Mach3 or the plugin, or both. Please make sure that axes other than x and y are  disabled and let me know what happens in the debug file.

Everything appeared to be set correctly, so I changed the every axis in the galil plugin to some other setting, saved it, and then changed them all back to the correct setting.

That seemed to fix it.  No idea what caused it.
