It freezes the Z when the actual feedrate drops below the setting you provide. 

Just a thought,(;-)TP

Yes this is how it works, freezes the Z.
It was successful.

But after so long i have changed the arc controller. The new one has a freezing option below 30V and works very good at the corners.
Check your arc controller, it may have this option ready.

Hi again.

The sensor phc has the input of "hold". That means if you send a signal to that port the thc will stop movind up and down. This is a little bit different like mach3 stop his own Z axis.

I have exprienced yesterday offline in mach3 plasma screen set, if the blended speed goes slower than the given one the output 6 goes active and then back again if the blended speed raises. That is all without a brain.
What you think ?

Best Regards

To be honest I didn't like the method of the speed calculation.
Happens some time to reduce the cutting speed while cutting, for better cutting quality.
That means that the "hold" command will be always on...

If you can see the output6 doing what you want, then you can use it.
But where is your output6 mapped to?
I cannot find any related output for hold.

regards
