CSMIO-IP-S & THC problem
« on: May 31, 2013, 07:44:42 AM »
Hello forum

I try implement the CSMIO-IP-S controller in my system (OEM). The machine
is a plasma cutter with THC. THC with a capacitive sensor.
I have the following problem.

Although THC function works fine when I disable THC function I
can only move Z axis with G00 or G01 codes once (jogging works fine).

Let me explain step by step the problem.

On Mach's default screen I press THC button.
The head moves down and stops properly.
I disable the THC function and on the MDI screen I give G00 Zxx input.
The head moves up to xx.
I press THC button on the main screen again.
The head moves down and stops properly.
I disable the THC function and on the MDI screen I give G00 Zxx input.
The head does not move!!
After Reset we can perform again G00 Zxx for one time.

Sometimes I get "ePID fault... press RESET on MACH screen" error.

The same thing happens also in gcode. only the first G00 Zxx is performed well.

CSMIO-IP-S Firmware 2.030 (4axis, x,y,z,a slave to y)
Mach3 v R3.043.066 (NOT demo)

Thank you in advance

Cant help much with the THC as I have never used plasma but it may be worth trying 057 or 062 versions of Mach just in case 066 is your problem as it does have various issues.

SOLVED

I implemented "doOEMbutton (124)" in my M05
This resets the height corection value every THC disable.

Thank you
