What happens whe power supply is gone?
« on: April 06, 2011, 05:42:58 AM »
That's the question does any body know if MACH3 can take into account the interruption point of a file when . for axample the power supply is gone and after its recovered we wish to continue without executing the whole file. thanks in advanced.
and other simple question how could I choose the sequence order when making REFERENCE ALL
Thank very much

Use Run From Here to start at a chosen point in the code, it only works on licensed versions of Mach.

Edit the Refall button and rearrange the order, you do that from Operator menu then Edit Button Scripts and the RefAll will be flashing, click on it and the editor will open.

Modify your wiring so that teh power supply holds in a relay in the E-Stop circuit. If the power supply drops teh machine goes into E-Stop and Mach will stop executiong the program because of the E-Stop. That is a rather common way to wire industrial machines. One of the conditions for the E-Stop to be cleared is that the machine has electrical power. Otherwise you could possibly have an E-Stop cleared when power comes on and things could be moving and who knows what could happen...
