Yes, I found it, sure, thanks, but I have asked you about guide for setting up ESS, Mach4, VFD and C41 for on/off/speed/fwd/rev spindle control.

I just started the Spindle work today.  Got buried in work and other things, now I have the latest MACH4 release, latest ESS release, and have homing and gcode working fine.  WOrking on the spindle control of the VFD using the C41R2 board from CNC4PC, will post if I get this working.

Following up on the C41 board and spindle control.  I'm just setting up a similar configuration now and wanted to know how you got it working.

Thanks

Thanks for your reply on a year old post. I managed to get mine working last night. Still a few quirks to work through but it feels like most of the heavy lifting is over.

IF anyone still checks this thread, could you post your config for the spindle. I am working on the same thing with no luck getting an output from the c41. Relay clicks on when hitting the On screen buttons, but the 0V-10V output always reads 0V.

Have you tried turning the spindle on via a gcode command?

Yes I've tried "M3 S10500" output still stays at 0V

Hi,
you have yet to establish whether signal is leaving the ESS to the BoB or not, it could be that it is but
the BoB is not doing its thing or there is no signal output from the ESS.

Can you monitor the ESS output?
