problem with my tool lenght sensor
« on: March 05, 2017, 11:39:56 AM »
hi all
i need your help  :o
i try to use a tool length sensor with mach 4 but i don`t unterstand how i can use the measurement.
what i`ve done:
i use a Ethernet smoot stepper plugin.
and i`ve already configured my input as a probe.
if i press the button on my tool length probe, the probe light in the machine diagnostic is going on.
so i think the configuration is ok.
if i press a button (for example) z position "measure z" something like a macro is executing but few seconds later nothing happen and the enable switch is flashing green. my cnc machine is doing nothing.
is somebody here who can help me with the settings, should i configure something more? not just the input from the tool length sensor?

What version of the ESS plugin are you using?? If its v194 then go back to v193 as probing is not functional in v194.
