EStop Problem
« on: May 02, 2015, 12:18:02 AM »
Ever since I added an Ethernet Smooth Stepper I've had a problem with my Estop. When I hit the Estop the G540 stops the steppers but Mach 3 continues to run. I have to manually stop Mach and reset everything. I have the Estop wired to pin 10 as per the gecko illustration. I know I just probably missed something on the setup, but for all my searching I can't find the missing step. Anyone have any ideas? I usually find all my answers here without posting so I guess I'm a lurker. I finally get to jump in.
Thanks

Do you have the E-Stop set correctly in Ports and Pins? Not just the correct pin number but you also need the correct port number assigned. The ESS has 3 ports so it will depend which one you are connected to as to whether you have port 1, 2 or 3 set  for the E-Stop port.

Hood, you're the Guru. As usual you're right on. I just played with ports and pins until I hit the combo that worked.  Thank You.
