Ok not enough info on my part.  have you loaded a zeroing script in the auto tool button? What pin do yo have your probe set ? what sort of breakout board do you have?
Regards

Is impossible to add! Because is not figured as lpt as needed. In diagnostic, pin ports are not visible but only in uc100 panel (15 imp.).  I've a cnc 3020 last type with black box controller.

OK the UC100 is a straight USB controller (nothing to do with the LPT port).  You should have pins on the UC100 that you hook the probe to. The UC100 then translates those pins back to Mach3. You would then need to set the pins in Mach3 that MATCH what the UC100 expects for the probe.

IF the UC100 even supports a probe. The info SHOULD be in the UC100 setup manual.

Just a thought, (;-) TP
