got a new pc but mach is giving wrong output signals on it
« on: September 17, 2011, 01:38:18 PM »
ok,
i got my new pc wired up. The jog keys are working, the inputs/outputs everything is okay. Spindle runs good, flood, mpg is also fine.
But my new pc goes mad sometimes.
1--When a tool is called, it doesnot give the output signals to the turret controller board sometimes.
2-- it sends the two output signals pin 14 and 16 sometimes when not needed. (i have used the pin 14 and 16 for jog mode indicators and two leds are driven from these ie: mpg or continous mode) usually one of them should light up. when it happens, i have to reset mach to get it to work again.

what's wrong with my new pc?
Hood, where are you? ::)

with thanks.

Sounds like macro problems or maybe duplicate pin assignment.

i have double checked it. But no clue.
Any tips to make the mach more stable (suppose for a batch run of 200 parts)

SOMETIMES with new computers they RUN "TOO" FAST and can cause problems with CB and macros running out of sync.

NOW that is just MY opinion from past experiences.  Your mileage may vary due to local variables,

Just something to check, you may have to add some wait states into your macro code now.
