Mach4/ESS sort of working
« on: May 15, 2015, 02:10:29 PM »
When I say sort of, I mean inputs and outputs work, but I have no jog movement.  The DRO's do not move, so I know it's something in M4.  With M3, if there is something going on on the breakout board preventing motion, the M3 DRO's still show motion.  There are no limits or estop triggered.  Everything looks normal.  What would cause M4 to process inputs and outputs correctly, but not move any of the axes?

Thanks

Did you click the Enable button on the bottom left side of the screen.  No motion unless you enable it.

I have only ever had this happen once and it was to do with the estop on pin 10, it also showed a red light on the ess.

Enable is on and Enable 0,1 and 2 are lit.

That was it.  Thanks for the tip.  Even though the estop in Mach3 was sowing disabled, the ESS was in estop.  Reversing the pin state in the ESS plugin did the trick.
