newbe - Xylotex Z-Axis not working - please help.
« on: April 06, 2007, 12:15:52 PM »

Hi,
 
My Z-axis will not work. (X & Y Axis are fine) The motor is good (I tested it and the cable), The Z-Axis does lock the motor up on power up.
 
I'm using mach3 and I have the 425oz/in  Xylotex 3 Axis driver board.

my motor outputs are..

STEP X - Pin 3
DIR X - Pin 2
STEP Y - Pin 5
DIR Y - Pin 4

These work fine, but I can't get the Z to work, what should I do ?

could it be some dumb pins like 22 & 23 ???

Thanks for the help

What pins are your Z axis, I would set it up for pins 6 & 7.
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

Problem fixed ! It was a chepo db25 cable. I had asked the electronics store for
a good cable but they sold me a chepo.

Thanks everyone for all the help !    :-*
