Abnormal Condition
« on: April 13, 2011, 11:35:36 PM »
I'm a newbie that is just starting to use Mach3 on my first machine.
When I start to run a file the DRO that usually says Normal Condition starts flashing yellow and shows Abnormal Condition. When I clip on the DRO it says "IJ mode is incremental". I've tried changing it to Absolute in the General config screen but it doesn't help.
As a side note the file appears to run correctly even tho the flashing DRO continues.
Any help/guidance would be appreciated.

Do you have a Gcode at the beginning on the program that change the IJ mode to absolute.

like G90.1 or G91.1

90.1 = Absolute
91.1 = incremantel

The bad thing about the Abnormal warning is it gets people worried. All it is really saying is the condition you have set as default has changed, so for example you may have the IJ mode set as Abs for default but your code changes it to Inc then you may get that warning message. Its nothing to worry about as its just saying the  the mode has changed.
