Mach + CandCNC MP3000 help please
« on: August 29, 2014, 01:08:44 PM »
I'm upgrading my plasma table to an MP3000-DTCHII from CandCNC and have now gained connection to the various boards and control of the motors and also fired the torch etc.

On my last setup which was mach3 with a Proma THC, I had my limit switches at each end of the axes all wired in a normally closed series chain and Mach3 would decide if they were limits or homing switches depending on what it was doing so when referencing the axes they were read as homing switches but at all other times they were read as limit switches.

This worked really well but I can't figure out how to reproduce it in the new setup.

I have the chain connected to the "Limits" input on the I/O board but do not know where that shows up inside the mach setup.

The Z home switch is really the floating head sensor and that is connected to z home and shows up as such in mach.

Anyone here got an MP3000??

Thanks

This is resolved now, just needed to find the correct mapping for physical inputs to ports and pins, Tom at CandCNC provided the info.
