Mach 2 Screen Questions
« on: April 11, 2007, 12:55:37 PM »
I'm trying to slowly understand this program. So far it works alright, but what exactly does the following "circled" items do?

Output1 is red; is this normal? It seems that anytime I have problems, this is red... then again, it may always be on, (not sure?)

And when I set the spindle to 100 is bumps up to 10000 after running through the drilling process... why would the spindle change in speed?

Any ideas would be great.

Output one may be setup to work with your spindle... so turn on the spindle and see if the LED turns on. you can change the settings under the ports and pins

The Spindle speed may be getting set in the Gcode file "S1000" or it could be the minimum speed of the spindle

Hope that helps

Hey Brian, thanks for the reply!

I will check to see if that output1 is as you say it is, spindle-related. Also, the code does have a S10000 in there like you said! I just don't understand why it all of a sudden started to show up... (maybe I just wasn't paying that close of attention, which is pretty possible.  :P )
