What plugin to use for old 55?
« on: December 19, 2011, 03:00:51 PM »
Hi guys,
So I am back again with my toys and need som advise.What is the latest plugin to go with my old 55's?
Please take look at my site where I have some pictures and how my 55 is setup. http://www.93x57r.se/tecno-cnc/Mpg.html
Been looking around and I cannot get a clear picture of what plugin to use
so if you guys would help an old fart to get back on track with his project I would be grateful.

Cheers
Bengt

Hi!

There are two plugins:
- made by Scott and Art. The file is on www.poscope.com
- made by Brian - There is a link on www.poscope.com
You can use both. Newer PoKeys56U are compatible with PoKeys55, so you can use both with both plugins.

Thanks Boris,
found a file in c:/mach3/
Anyways that did not help much to setup 1 MPG - Matrix keyboard - LED matrix - LCD - 2 analog inputs and 1 digital input.

Went back to the old plugin, still I have problems with that one to. Yesterday matrix keyboard was OK in Mach3/Pokeys test page but not today.
MPG is OK in single step and multistep but *********s up in velocity and step/velocity. Not able to get anything OK in those two modes.

If I recall all this was functioning before way back, but why now all kinds of peculiar behaviour.

Everything is OK with Pokeys when test the functions (not LED test that is mirrored in X axis. Same in PoKeys screen LEDs are mirrored ( all connected to latest sample schematics in documentation)

MPG in Mach3 is very SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW that we know but this slow?

Cheers

Hi!

First plugin is written by Scott Schaffer, second by Brian Barker.
I think that new should gave you more performance, but it is under work.

OK, the first is no longer supported  ???
The new one is far far away from ready  ???

So what do all PoKeys users do in the mean time? Play poker or what?

No really, there must be a way to get MPG to function with the old Plugin. Have to dig deeper into this....

So I hear, but many of us are not so lucky.

Single step and Multistep works OK.  Velocity Only and Step/Velocity does not work, can somebody please explain what the heck is going on.

Btw, today the Matrix keyboard works on the testpage so go figure what causes this behaviour.
