Elapsed Timer problem here also, now starts counting as soon as i start Mach. By the time Mach is ready to use, the counter has already counted to 14 seconds. I think it appeared somewhere after version 2491.

Setting up MACH4 with a CSMIO/IP-S

Step/Dir servo powered spindle will not start unless spindle speed is changed via G-code 'S' command or override.

Some of the problem went away with build 2580. M4 works now, but M3 does not.

Based on the behavior, I would speculate that MACH4 only sends speed change info to the plug-in, because altering the speed started the drive.

It would seem that the speed data needs to be sent to the plug-in with any spindle start command. Why M4 works and M3 does not is a mystery.

M3 used alone does not start the spindle, however the following:

S5 M3
S1000

results in the spindle starting. Prior to Build 2580, the same workaround was needed with M4, but that seems t be working now.
