MPG is not recognised
« on: June 08, 2015, 04:06:20 PM »
Hello Guys :)
I am new here. D:

I have retrofitted a 18kW Lathe from the 80's with CSMIO/IP-A and Mach3.
I was able to solve the most problems, but the MPG is making me nervous. :o

The encoder in the MPG is connected to the CSMIO Board and gives a nice signal out (Attachment).
I am also able to read the signal in Mach3 out.

For testing I configured the two Pins on the B and C homing input and in the diagnostic screen I can see the same action like in the attachment


I have configured the MPG in Port's and Pin's on Port 10 and Pin 12+13
On the CSMIO Board its on the Pins 12+13 (with zero counted)

When I switch on the MPG mode (and select the axis) and turn the MPG the LED's on the Board are lighting..
But nothing moves.

If I go to the MPG calibration wizzard and I klick e.g. on "Call Detent Size" and turn the MPG one step nothing happens. When I click calculate it calculates 0.

I hope anyone can help me.


Yours Burkhard
