Problem with Mach 3 Mill Reset
« on: May 03, 2007, 07:30:47 PM »
Just downloaded the latest copy of Mach 3 (.068) and it still has a problem with power off resets. I have my spindle controls setup on two relays, one for each direction. They are controlled by pins 8&9 and are active low. When I reboot my PC and load Mach 3 Mill both pins go active after I reset. They will stay that way and even do some strange toggles until I cycle the spindle 2 times in the diag screen. I can move the other axis's and it still will not set these pins correctly. Luckily my relays prevent the possiblility of both being on at the same time so I didn't have a shop full of smoke. Obviously I do not want the machine coming up with the spindle on however so this needs addressed. After this first episode I can close and open Mach 3 all day long and it works fine. Just the first power on load causes the problem.  >:(
