fault : external e-stop required
« on: February 22, 2014, 10:40:32 AM »
Does anybody know what it means? Or fixes?
It happened a couple of times last week during cuts. Everything stops.
I just need to press reset and start a new piece, but its annoying
running a bulltear plasma table with sheetcam and mach3

Thanks

I'm guessing it actually said "External E-Stop Requested" which indicates that Mach received a signal on the assigned e-stop pin either by mechanical means or from electrical "noise".

Sorry, youre right,
forgot to say, i have my floating heat switch wired as a safety stop with shielded wire in place of the blue jumper wire in the bladerunner box, in case ohmic sensing fails.
If i disable e-stop in ports and pins, will my switch still work?
