Mach 4 tracking limit error
« on: June 04, 2018, 09:28:41 PM »
Ok I am new to mach 4 and the Hicon integra board. I am using clear path servos and can only get them to make a small move before getting error of tracking limit exceeded on all axis. I am not sure where to start to fix this problem and was hoping someone out there has had this problem as well and could point me in the right direction. I have the tracking error limit set to 6400 in the clear path software and even tried to turn it off just to see if i could get movement more then a pulse or two. Your help is much apperciated!!

Is the error showing in the VSI debug window or Mach4 history log?

I have figured out this problem thanks for the response. but I have another question. The spindle set up on the DCM or RLC relay in order for the spindle to turn on when I hit the switch it should be reading 24v correct? I can hear the relay kicking on and off but Im not getting any voltage from it.

If you have the relay common wired to +24V then the relay output will source +24V.  Normally, the relay common is wired to the DAC which will output 0-10V depending on the speed settings of the spindle in Mach4.
