Thanks hood ran the driver, the both coexist nicely and are selectable on startup.
BUT it still runs the same ;D

Cheers I really do appreciate the effort and personally volunteer run any crazy test to get to the bottom of this one.

Just an update

Performed another clean install of Mach3 Version 62 and used the latest ESS_v10da3 driver.
Ticked every setting again to recreate the mill xml but no go.
Not finished but definitely need to leave this one rest for a while as it is a massive time thief.
I remain willing to test again if any further information comes to light.

Is there any way you can try with the parallel port? If it still happens with that then you know its not the ESS, if it doesnt then its the ESS.

Hi Hood

Definitely tried this and it works well under the Parallel Port and not under the ESS.
I have been reading up though on the Break out Board Port buffer settings and direction eg in , out and auto (bidirectional).
As the ESS now sits in the middle so maybe their is a difference in how the data is managed.
The thing that has made me look is that there is a data buffer between the pins input and the stepper drivers connected to the BOB.
Will play and see if it has any effect.

Hi Hood

My apologies, despite my statement that it worked well on the PP, your advice pushed me to retest it again.
You guessed it the hesitation was also on the Parallel Port... extremely embarrassed on my behalf. :-[

I have a convoluted series of excuses but in the end I just better to move on and thank you for your continued assistance.
You managed to get me to recheck my assumptions and I thank you for that.

The only thing I will say now is I have seen it work many times very well on feed rate overide and it's up to me to retore it !!

Regard
Ross

Its good in a way as you have at least narrowed it down a bit ;D
Do you have any Brains or Plugins enabled? Macropump?
Try disabling any you have.

You might try creating a new profile from scratch. I have seen a corrupted profile do many strange and unexplainable things.
Happy machining , Jeff Birt
