Only question left is whether this "closed loop" will stop a move when the target has been reached?

Hello,

When using encoder feedback, the encoder value is used as a starting point before doing the move. The motion will end once the calculated distance has been passed. Aside from that, the encoder value is continuously checked for max following error. While all this is happening, the Mach3 position DROs show the actual axis position, which is the value from encoder feedback.

Can I hit cycle stop in the middle of a program with your Hicon connector and I won't have any problems?  Currently that situation with teh ESS is leaving a bad taste in my mouth.  Having to press feed hold, waiting for motion to stop and only then being able to hit cycle stop.

with hicon, the feed hold is instantaneous.  no delay to empty the motion buffer.  If you hit stop, with or without feedhold, the motion will stop right away, but you will have to do "start from here" from a previous line in gcode so mach3 can regenerate the motion data.

hope this helps

If I hit stop without first hitting feed hold, will teh Hicon lose communication with MACH?
