Sorry, I can' understand why it's blank. I just cloned the profile and this one should be OK.

E-Stop and MPG "B" are both on pin 15.

Are you certain that the MPG wiring is connected properly ?

Maybe attach the data sheet ?

Hi Russ, thanks for the tip.
I'm afraid this isn't the reason why it doesn't work, I've moved e-stop to another pin, and it's not physically connected anyway, just emulated. Nothing happened, I've tried both AB pairs again...
I'd love to post the datasheet, but I did not get any and there was not one on the Ebay.
As I said, I've tested it with osciloscope, though, and only A-B combinations produced an output (not A-A or B-B etc...), and both looked good to me, the other one (bottom contacts) was just inverted...
Here's the link to the Ebay item:

As Russ has said you have the pin set to 15 for the E-Stop even with no physical E-Stop connected then it will be a conflict in Mach if you have the MPG to that same pin.
I would expect you to go into reset as soon as the MPG is turned.

One other thing, you are using a pirate licence, that may or may not be an issue with the MPG but it is an issue with asking for help from the Mach forum ;)

misko,

Since you are using a pirated Mach version we cannot support your requests for any type of assistance
until you resolve the license issue.

Strongly suggest you purchase a license.

OK, I've bought the license, I've got the PC with the software already installed with the router. Sorry I never even thought it was pirated, Anyway, I hope that's solved now...

Only other thing I can see is the MPG (on tab screen) is set to Step/Velocity mode.
That doesn't work great even when set up , much better to have either in Multistep (for small controlled distances) or Velocity for normal movement.

You can also calibrate the MPG via the Function Configs menu, the first two options should be done but personally I wouldn't bother with the last one.

I've tried all the optons there, too, one by one, but no movement whatsoever... Also tried to calibrate, same result... Thanks...
