Ref All Home - problem
« on: September 01, 2015, 01:36:28 PM »
Hej,

I have marked Auto Limit OverRide but when I press Ref All Home it doesn't work.

Best Respect

Hi Amnon,
 I'm not sure what you are implying, but using the Override you manually jog the axis' well clear of any of the homing/limit switches (being careful to jog in the proper direction as it will allow you to crash if you jog into the switch) then do a Ref All.

Hope this may help,
Russ

Hi Russ,

Thank's, I wasn't clear enough, my limits and homing are connected in series and using only 1 pin on USB port. When I do a home move, first the axis Z moves up, hits the home switch then stops and does not backoff. I can see switches still active on the Diagnostic page. Auto limit override is on,  I did try the debounce at 2000 ... no Change.
I have breakout board:

Debounce in Mach will have no influence as you have an external controller. Look in the plugin and see if there are any filtering/debounce options.

You seem to be using an older version of Mach, maybe your plugin is incompatible with older versions, that is often the case for external controllers.
Ver 3.043.062  is probably the best one to get, the latest (066) has multiple issues and I would not recommend.
You can find previous Mach versions here ftp://machsupport.com/Mach3/

If that does not help attach your xml and I will see if I can find an issue in it.

Hi,

Unfortunately no change. Whats more, I separated limit switches from Home switches, when I Ref All Home only Z axis homing without zeroing axis. Strange.

Afraid you are using a pirate licence, that may or may not be contributing to the problem.

Seems you were also supplied with a pirate licence for Mach.
