MPG module
« on: November 04, 2014, 09:21:06 PM »
hello
i am installing a csmio/ip-a with a mpg module i wired the module to a panel with rotary switches and a mpg the mpg worked on the module i could see the leds blink but could get nothing out of mach 3 as i couldn't figure where to look. then  i connected the estop wires and nothing. i was going crazy then i looked at the electrical prints again and noticed the common cathode jumper to ground you need to have the jumper or wires connected or nothing will work something not mentioned in the manual. now everything works so far i have yet to try the analog inputs. i am curious as to how i can use the extra input and output does anybody know there address or is it a modbus thing. all that being said i was jogging today and have found it to be the smoothest jogging i have ever set up. :)

If I recall the CANbus address of the MPG module is 32, so that would be port 32 in Machs config.
