Index Pulse Problem
« on: September 21, 2011, 11:29:49 AM »
I'm in the process of converting an EMCO Compact 5PC Lathe to work with MACH3 and have the X and Z axis working fine but cannot get MACH3 to read the Index Pulse.
I drug out the O'Scope to take a look at the pulses and I don't see anything wrong there.
Attached is a drawing of the pulses and it looks like to me that they fall within the parameters mentioned in the MACH3 Turn manual.
Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks,
Orin

You will find info on setting up the index and testing in "Threading on The lathe"  write up which can be found in Members Docs.
