I'm still using the plugin from 4746, copied into my production install. I've yet to find a later plugin that works unfortunately.

Ok guys, starting with build 4688, I have included a plugin that will handle the WHB04B-4 and WHB04B-6 XHC MPGs.  It will eventually support the older WHB04 but I haven't gotten one in yet to test with.

To be clear, it supports the MPGs that look like this:

Hey all, I'm using the plugins copied from the development version in to 4612, seems to work great apart from the step/cont jog
- For versions up to 4746 i have repeatable steps but not continuous mode
- For versions after that up to 4839 i have continuous at all speeds but no steps

Just wanted to confirm if that's what others are experiencing at this stage or if there is a solution to this

Watch my YouTube video, and I'm using mach4 version 4.2.0.4839, with whb04b-6 video proof that it working. Also make sure you don't select MPG # 0, because it not work. You have to select MPG #1 and above then your axis's steps travel will work. Go over my video.

OK thanks Nleo22, switching to MPG #1 worked, continuous and lead mode work well along with 0.1 and 0.01mm steps which is pretty workable, 1mm steps do not work which i think has been mentioned previously.

I took a break and upgraded my motion controller card to an ESS. Combined that with the fantastic MB3 break out board from CNC Room. Solved several mysteries with my spindle control. I thought I was in the clear....
I was almost successful getting the plugin from build 4839 to work about two weeks ago, but missed an important step. So I ordered a ShuttlePRO V2 ($150 USD)and had zero luck with that :o Really didn't know what to do next. But the clock was ticking, and my patience was just about done. So I really appreciate the info you have shared. Thank you. I can finally go back to work. Oh yes...and I can return my ShuttlePRO V2 and put the cash into material purchases.

Thanks again for taking the time and effort!
