Hello everyone.
I am finishing my pendant to control my CNC milling machine manually. It is developed from a Pokeys 57 device. It has a tactile keyboard that controls all functions, a 4x20 character LCD and an MPG.
Everything works well with a macropump except the MPG. It has a very strange behavior, since I am only able to make it work if I set the MPG1 and MPG3 in Ports and Pins and in the Pokeys mapping, I encode the Fast Encoder 1 that I have connected in pins 1 and 2, so that I can manage the DRO103: MPG3 count DRO. In this way, if I move the encoder, I see the pulse count in the Pokeys IO Status and in the Settings tab of Mach3.
The problem is that the axis selector that I have written in the macropump logically does not work and to select the axis that controls the MPG I have to do it through the button of the interface of Mach3 or by pressing ALT + C on the keyboard.
My version of Mach3 is R3.043.066 and the Pokeys plugin is verison 3.15 of 2/28/2018.
If I only select MPG1 in Ports and Pins the axes move alone without control.

I have read and reread all the forum posts related to PoKeys and MPG and I have not found anything similar.

Can you help me?

Sorry for my bad english ...

Tonight I discovered the reason for the strange behavior of my pendant. It turns out that a brain that I designed some time ago remained active and interacted with the MPG1. I disabled the brain and everything started to work perfectly.
Thank you all
