Mach4 and ESS servo motor reverse - not being applied?
« on: December 02, 2017, 05:25:33 PM »
I'm running Mach4 and ESS. 2 of my servos are running in the wrong direction and I would like to correct it. I read that Mach4 has a "reverse" checkbox under the motors tab. I click the reverse for each of the servos running in the wrong direction, "Apply" and restart Mach4, yet the servos still turn in the same wrong direction. Does Mach4 support reversing the servo direction like this?

Any ideas how I would correct this issue?

Have you tried changeing the active high/low in the ESS pins config for direction.

Thanks Daz. That worked perfectly. All axis are moving in the correct direction. Hopefully I can take a test cut by Christmas...
