IMACH P5, acceleration, MACH Version
« on: March 03, 2011, 02:53:09 PM »
Just got the VistaCNC P5 pendant and noticed stalls when reversing directions in C or S mode ... seems the acceleration was a bit low - anyone else seen this issue?

The P5 manual rec's 2.63 or higher which is what I'm using. Any benefit using MPGs like the P5 with newer MACH versions?

Any settings i should be aware of? My machine has run well with CNC jobs for the past 8 years... using Gecko 201's, std parallel port, 74ACT buffers as per Mariss.

Also - any issues with higher accelerations on typical MAXNC BSA antibacklash nuts?  My MAX is oversized, Mitch way back when made me a 22" x, 20" Y and 22" Z so it's a bit more mass than a standard 15...

Also have issues with the P5 losing comm with MACH 3, just stops working. unplugging and replugin the USB seems to get it going again.
