Dwell is blinking
« on: October 27, 2013, 01:25:13 PM »
I´m rather new user of Mach 3. an I' m trying to calibrate the spindel.
I  control the speed and read the speed from mach 3, that's ok.
But when I tried to calibrate the spindel using Autocalibrate, then the spindel stop.
After that it's impossible to start the spindel again and the Dwell is flashing.
What could had happened and how do I reset this?
Need Your help!

I would guess than you have a dwell setup for the spindle with a LARGE value and every time you call the spindle M3 to start it is waiting on the dwell to finish before starting.

(;-) TP

IIRC, in ports and pins, general page, should have a dwell time setting.
I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not like the passengers in the car! :-)
