Hi there,

I just changed from a parallel situation to USB, Parallel is just too old and not stable enough for me.

I bought an XhC Mach3 USB control card (4 axis). I wired everything, checked and double checked. Y/Z works fine. The X-axis only wants to move in 1 direction when toggled. I tried about every function n Mach3, i just cannot invert the direction, and am not able to make it goi in both directions. I checked the wire from driver to the controlcard and "beeped"it. The cable is ok. All drivers have exactly the same dipswitches activ, same drivers, same steppermotors.

The last few hair i have go grey, can some-one help me ?

Thanx in advance

Fred

swap motors to identify is motor and wiring ok, swap just driver to ensure driver ok, double check config.

i swapped the wiring between USB card and Driver from X axis to Z axis. Now the Z axis only moves to one side only, and X moves normal.

Does this mean the USB control card has a malfunction?

I found the error. It was the direction wire that did not make good contact.
