"galil card not connected"
« on: March 08, 2016, 01:01:39 AM »
Hi all,

I have registered a Galil card (DMC 18x0) , set the PID parameters, and can move motors with it using the DMC terminal, servo design kit, etc, but when I open Mach3, it says "Galil card not connected".

I only have a Demo copy of Mach. Is that the problem?

Also, on startup it asks which controller to use: "Galil-st-Barker......." or "Galil-Barker......"    what does the "ST" extension mean? I downloaded both Galil Mach3 plugins. But what is the difference and which should I use?

In the PDF instructions it says to configure the plugin and there are screenshots of the settings. Where do I find these settings specific to the plugin?

Thanks in advance!

OK I found the Config>>Config Plugins menu and selected the Galil card I'm using. Still not sure what the difference is between the Galil plugin and the Galil ST plugin, but making good progress now...

That is explained on the plugin download page.  ST is short for Smart Term.  The old driver suite from Galil.
