Y axis not working
« on: January 30, 2014, 05:44:49 PM »

Me and my friend are making cnc machine with 4 axis x,y,z and a. We are wiring one stepper motor at the time. X axis motor is running well, but now y axis is not working.

We wired everything the right way and motors are locked, the g code is running and x motor is moving but y motor is not working.

I'm using these motors and drivers


i don't have picture here but this is the configuration

motor outputs

             step pin / dir pin / dirlow active/  steplow active   step port    dir port
x enabled    2             3          x                    x                     1            1
y enabled    4             5          x                    x                      1            1
z enabled    6             7          x                    x                      1            1

input signals

everything except e stop disabled

estop enabled
port 1
pin number 10
active low- enabled
other disabled

output signals

enable1   1   14   disabled
enable2   1   2     disabled
enable3   1   6     disabled

output1 enabled 1 9 disabled

this is the configuration.Can you tell me what's the problem of Y axis. We didn't try Z and A because we are connecting one by one.

it's okay we found the solution. We played with pin numbers in output signals x is 2 and y is 4 now and i suppose z will be 6 and a will be 8
