Startup and shutdown sequence
« on: June 26, 2015, 02:19:59 PM »
Hi,  just wanted to know what the correct startup and shutdown sequence is.  I am using uc-100 controller.  Do i turn machine on then mach3 for startup and then for shutdown turn off mach3 and then machine?

It doesn't matter in my opinion. I don't know anything about the uc-100.

Imo, the machine should not be powered up until Mach3 is running. And the machine should be powered off before Mach3 is closed.

I start up with the E-stop pressed, just in case a signal fires the plasma torch unexpectedly.

I generally just turn everything on and off but the E-Stop is always in before shutdown and startup.
