rcaffin can you show where you increased that buffer by a screen print i can't seem to find it..
i am using version 10da2 of the ess pluggin..thanks
Its under Plugin Control, something to do with ESS config, bottom left hand corner of screen.
Can't fire up actual CNC right now - big storm, brown-out on some phases of grid ... Running this machine on special mains.
I'll look later.

Cheers

Again Referencing:

Tested with Mach R3.043.058 and ESS plugin ESS_v10da2.

Commands DoOEMButton(22) (23) and (24) are working fine.

Command RefCombination(x) is not working correct.
It is working with single axis (1,2,4,8...) argument but not with combination of them.
For example: RefCombination(3) moves only x axis,
RefCombination(6) moves only y axis.

Is this bug in ESS plugin?

Regards,
Andreas.

Hi mach3user

See attached. BLHC, with '2000' in it. It came with 1024 in it I think.

thanks rcaffin will look into it on my system just waiting for better weather kinda cold in the garage but I am changing out the older USB smoothstepper with the Ethernet one since I have had intermittent stops due to noise that no matter what I tried it would not go away and the newer version is suppose to be more noise resistant(that and I have a c25 breakout board too)....
I think the plugin for the ess Needs a little more evolving but it's looks close enough for me so far..

:)

Same experience. Now immune to noise.

I got mach3 connected to the smoothstepper ethernet and it moves my Sieg KX3 axis fine but it does not turn on the spindle. Is there any settings I need to set for this?

I suspect that you don't have Mach set up with the right pin for whatever physical connection you have to the spindle. Detailed checking ...

Using the KX3 profile and it works fine on my desktop computer with a parallel port. Same setting for the pin no?

Actually, maybe not. I know Greg did make a few changes when he extended Port 3. Check at Warp9 web site.

Hmm right now its set in ports and pins config as

steppin# 14
dirpin # 16
Dir low active enabled
step low active enabled
step and dir port 1

Should I maybe play around with this setting?
