Input not recognized with USB controller
« on: August 27, 2015, 07:52:09 AM »
Hello!
I have a CNC lathe connected with the parallel port and a Mill connected with a USB controller (I don't know which one...).
Both work ok when cutting but with the Lathe I can feed inputs both physically (with Wires) and virtually (key strokes).
In this way I'm testing the probe functionality.
On the mill I can virtually map the digitize input and it's recognized correctly in the diagnose page (it blinks when I hit the keyboard letter mapped to it).
When I do a G31 scan the key stroke doesn't stop the mill and it keeps going forever.
Fearing it was a problem with mapping I mapped another key to the E-Stop and it works ok.
I then mapped it to the spindle index and while it blinks when pressed it doesn't update the RPM as it does with the Lathe with the parallel port.
How come?

When using an external motion controller the movements are implemented  / controlled by the external device.
May need to go to the seller to resolve.

Solved: the controller I have is both usb and parallel port. It doesn't support probe input on USB, it does on parallel port.
