MAch 4 and Darwin Homing Problems
« on: September 05, 2016, 10:36:19 AM »
Good Day All,
I am new to the forum but have been playing with ArtSoft software for some time now. I recently download latest versions of Mach 4 and Darwin Plugin and purchased a licenece for Darwin. I have the setup everything and everything is functioning except the homing.
I have homing switches setup in Darwin using inputs 11, 12, and 13 and they all funtion in the Mach Diagnostic tab but when i hit home all the machine makes a quick noise like it wants to home and then disables.

In my version of Mach 3 running on same system everything funtions fully.  I have tried pretty much everything i can think of and am looing for help. Maybe i am not setting something up right in Mach configure or setting too many things.

Any help or Thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Are there any messages in the error/status line (bottom left of the Mach4 screen) or in the "history" window (click the "History" button to the left of the error/status line?

Hi Bob,
Thanks for checking back, Problem solved! I guess i was not thinking logically enough. I was using the  input signals from parallel port instead of input signal i assigned to parallel port through Darwin. Does mach 4 support or have a plugin for the WHB04 handheld wireless remote. I use it quite often in Mach 3 and would hate to loose it in mach 4.
