Faisal,

Change the ActiveLow setting for your EStop pin and any other pins that are showing active when they should not be.

Hello Faisal,

As I mentioned in another reply, you have to figure out what you're using for a motion controller. Unless you are using the parallel port as a motion controller, you need to install the appropriate plugin for your hardware. You'll also need to assign step and direction pins for each of your motors. If you want to post your profile, I can take a look at your settings and help get you moving in the right direction. Your profile name is shown in the bottom right in Mach3 (when using a default screen). The file I need is saved in your Mach3 folder in your C: Drive with that same name. It will be in XML file format. If it's Mach3Mill, give it a unique name (ex: FaisalMill) and post it as an attachment here.

Thank you,
Bryanna

Faisal,

The first thing I encounter in your profile is a 'Locked' message. Are you able to get past that? Once I got past that, I checked out your ports and pins, which look reasonable. I also saw in both your profile name and the XML file itself that you are likely using a UBOB from CandCNC. If you go to Config>Config Plugins, is their plugin on the list? If so, is it enabled? If it is installed and enabled, try going to Function Cfg's>Reset Device Sel and then restart Mach3. It will give the option upon startup to choose which motion controller you would like to use. Make sure yours is connected and powered up (if applicable), choose it from the list, and test communication with something basic like your Estop or a home or limit switch. If you have communication, then move on to testing your motors.

I thank you Bryanna for your reply. I am going to Test it in the way you said. However, just to let you know that in the diagnostic page .. I found "M3 ++ LIM" light is Yellow red. Does that mean that something wrong with the motor as well???

I tried to down load Mach3 from one of my friend's comp. to one of my new machine with Windows 7, that also has parallel ports.... I have written the exact config. from the past so exactly copied after downloading and connecting to the new computer with the fresh down load of Mach3.. but Alas! same result it said Emergency External Estop requested again. Now one thing is different on the new one is once I click Clear and Reset it again it said, Limit Switch Triggered.... Does it give you and twist on the situation. Please consider this too and let me know if you can. I would rather go with my old Mach3 and old comp. machine than with the new machine...... As you know my email address so you can feel free to email me as well.

Thanks again

Faisal

Hello Faisal,

That LED lighting up is telling you that Mach3 is receiving a signal on the pin you have designated for your Motor3 limit switch on the positive side. If that switch is not actually being pressed, you just need to go to Config>Ports and Pins>Input Signals and find the Z++ pin. Change the Active Low setting and it should go out and you should be able to reset the emergency stop.
