Ok, i pulled the enable and reset lines from the CSMIO and stuffed the enable into 0v and the motor started creeping so there is life here ;)

however no difference on jog from mach

and the encoder still stops showing when i go out of reset??

The drives outputs look like they sink and on the IP-A the inputs can be used either way so you are fine with the drives outputs to IP-A Inputs.

Have you got the drive configured as analogue input?
Didn't see any mention of tuning in the servo manual but you would normally have to tune it and then tune the IP-A.
Not sure what you mean by encoders stop, is that the DROs in Mach, the readout on the drives screen, count in plugin?

errr, not sure will have to look at that.

no idea on tuning, not done any, cant see any mention in manual

when mach in reset the encoder alters the DRO in real-time when motor twiddled
when out of reset the DRO does not alter any more when motor twiddled

looks like it's -10 - 0 - 10v only.

Ok if you have it set up for -10 0 +10v command then that is correct.
Not sure why it is stopping outputting to the DROs in Mach but as it is showing whilst Mach is in reset then it may be that the IP-A is not configured correctly.
If you attach your xml I can have a quick look.

Ok, will do.

Where it is now, i take it out of reset, press left or right jog and i get the "ePID error" come up and it goes into reset, the motor does not move.

Is there setting software available for these servo drives?

I know with the Kinco drives fitted to my lathe, the software lets you flip the active high/low settings for inputs and output, which you couldn't do via the front panel. Or at least if you could, it wasn't mentioned anywhere...

I think there are pn settings for output/input states but i have it on manual control for enable now and all others disconnected.

I need to get movement I think before going into controls.
