windows 7
« on: June 13, 2012, 10:56:53 AM »
Hi guys, I haven't been around lately because I has been overseas for a couple of years now.  I have just recently instilled Window 7 on my desktop and I seem to be having problems with my Mach3 Pro board.  First of all I reinstalled Mach3 and the jog function doesn't work now. I can't find the documented information on the board anymore due to a lot of things changing while I was away. I am using 130 style stepper motors and trying to get my old CNC started again. My controller is a rev 1 unipolar stepper motor unit. I will keep looking around for my manual but I believe its been thrown out at some stage. I have forgotten settings and program setup. For some reason, I am not sure of my speakers on my desktop aren't working anymore.

Overview needed:
Direction pinouts and step pinouts
updated software to run Win7 operating system (including Updated info)

is the driver board a hobby cnc pro board?


ps. if so the pinouts should be printed on the surface of the board.

SOLVED: After installing Win7 and reading the guidelines on using the software (MACH3). I decided to firstly reinstall MACH3 and run the DriveTest.exe file, this indicated that my clock speed was faster than the clock of 25 hz, so I changed it to 35Hz and the program is running fine now.
