Ref All Home Moves .2 and stops. Won't go home
« on: December 23, 2013, 05:23:17 PM »

I have Z home enabled. X and Y are disabled. I have soft limits of +/-100,000. The input switch is not active.

I hit the Ref All Home button and the Z axis moves +.200 and stops. The Z DRO resets to whatever the initial value was. That is, if it started at -2.00, it travels .2, stops @-1.8  and resets the DRO to -2.00. No error message.

What am I doing wrong?

In Config >Homing/Limits, do you have a Home Offset of -2?
If so, then noise is probably triggering your switch.

The home offsett is zero. I don't think it is noise as the behavior is consistent.  I can have the Z anywhere on its travel and have the DRO set to any number. It always moves +.2 and stops.

Thanks for the offer Hood. It was operator error. The button had the legacy DoButton code. I switched it to DoOEMButton and it worked.

It's running through a DSPMC. That may have something to do with it.

Well there are known issues with it and homing, most likely when using external controllers. I have gone back to 056 or 057 .
