Need setup help for smoothstepper and C25S BOB
« on: August 28, 2016, 02:29:58 PM »
Ok I got the C25S plugged into my smoothstepper.  Smoothstepper is configured with my network card and seems to be recognized in mach4 but I need to know what to set in the smoothstepper and Mach configuration in mach4.  As is my motors will not respond to jog but they are locked so I know they are getting signals.  I looked at one of the videos from  Daz but the smoothstepper he used in the video was an early version so all the configuration screens were different.  I have the latest versions of everything.  Below is my system.

I have (5) Gecko 251S drivers for XYZAB axis and they are connected according to Gecko instructions.

Smoothstepper board NOTE: I do not know lf the jumpers are set right so I left them as received.

C25S BOB with port (1) configured as pin 2/3 X pin 4/5 Y pin 6/7 Z pin 8/9 A pin 1/17 B

NEMA 17 motors

I think I covered everything hopefully someone can help me with the correct settings.

The ESS settings information is here http://www.warp9td.com/index.php/gettingstarted/setting-up-the-smoothstepper-and-mach4#MachFourInitialESS_NEW_PLUGIN

Yeah I tried using the procedure in that link but the screens images are not the same as that of the latest plugin.  
I'm using the 6 axis screen profile that comes with Mach4.

Is there an updated Smoothstepper procedure for the latest plugin 186?

It is my understanding that it is the latest documentation which is linked above (Andy is probably working on the update but everything takes it’s time).

Have you tried using the SCU ?

Well unless I have relevant procedure I'm left to guessing and that's not going to work.  I just don't know enough about this stuff to make guesses.
