smoothstepper and dmm breakout board
« on: November 25, 2011, 08:18:49 PM »
I know some of you are using the smoothstepper with the dmm breakout board.

I am having trouble setting mine up.  Everything works fine with the dmm board when hooked up to the parallel port.

I have installed the smoothstepper plugin.  It keeps giving me an error "external e-stop requested" in mach.  When I change the estop to active low the error gos away but I can not jog any of the axes.

The ss light is flashing red and the green light is solid.  I have the ribbon set to port 1 and all the pins are the same setup I used with the parallel port before the smooth stepper.

DMM has two BB. Which one are you using?

What plugin version do you have installed? And Mach3 version?

I just finished my new router with DMM servos and SS, everything is working well.

I'm using the SS plugin v015ogx2 and my BB is the DMB3621-4A and everything is working well.
If you can work with the LPT port, should work with the SS.
Maybe you can try with a lockdown plugin.
My driver for SS is v2.08.20
If you go to Plugin Control, SmoothStepper Data Monitoring. Are Sequence ID and Device Time data changing?
Do you have in Plugin Control, SmoothStepper ****************** Config, activated the output mode in Step and Direction?
My EStop is on pin 10 with active low activated

The next time you ask something I will ignore you.
