Spindle Lock Error G76 Thread Cycle
« on: February 10, 2014, 11:34:46 AM »
Hi All,
Does anyone have an idea what this error means?

Used a PC (PC1) to set up Mach3 turn on my SC2 lathe and cut a thread to check all was working ok, and it was and still is for PC number 1.  Copied the XML to another PC  (PC2) and now on this one I get the following errors in the Last Errors file:
Mon - 16:11:10 --- Threading Calc:  Vel (IPM): 178.7176 Actual Calc Pitch: 0.8000 Spindle: 223.3971

Mon - 16:11:41 ---Too Slow for Pulley..Using Min.


Considering a bit further, the only difference between the two computers is the parallel address port, I imported my XML files for the preferences into a databse and found no differences.
I need to understand where this is coming from as it must be due to a PC clocking issue or something like that. Hoping that if the cause of the error can be established I can rule out thios PC complelety.
Hope you can help.  :(

Looks like you have the Threading test plugin enabled. you should not use this now as it was a test for early versions whilst Art was trying to find issues with the threading using the parallel port.

The Plugin Control menu has only a Video Window.  This is a new install and I have not applied any plugins as yet.
Do you think it is actuating somehow or by some other means, how can I confirm the plugin is disabled?

Hi Hood,
I have just cheched all plugins are disabled but still producing the same error log, is there anyone who can source this error condition.  As it had a 10-90% duty cyucle on the index slot, I have just made a new index pulse card with a 50% duty cycle, this alo made no difference. 
Regards
Paul

Attach your xml and I will have a look through it and see if I can find an issue.

Hi Hood,
Yep, date is set correctly , I am in the UK!  It is 9:47pm.

Just seen that the Mach3 version on PC1 is version 3.00 where the version on PC2 is 3.044.066, I will try to install the olders version on PC2 and see if this error still happens.  I do have two Mach3 Licences!

Enclosed:
The last run of thread TEST 2_LP1.txt
produced the last errors_LP1.txt
using the Mach3Turn_LP1.xml

Thank you.
I'm off for a cup tea now :)
I will bae back on line tomorrow...
