Cannot get motors to run
« on: March 15, 2011, 02:14:04 PM »
I need any help I can get.  Yesterday I was setting up my new router and was able to jog all my motors but when I shut off the computer and restarted it the spindle ran while the computer was booting up.  We uninstalled and reinstalled the software but got no response from the motors.  My DRO readouts show movement but nothing is happening,  Any thoughts?

Need more details of your setup but first thing to check is you have the correct port address set and that you have the correct port and pin numbers set for the motors.

Sward,

Mach should be up and running before you switch on your machine. All sorts of nasty things could happen otherwise  ;)
