Macropump problem?
« on: August 03, 2007, 07:09:43 PM »
Hello all, I think I am having a problem with my macropump..... When I first Start my MACH3 i get a popup window that is empty but has the title RunLoop Macro thread dummy. Has anyone seen this before? My Macropump is also not doing what it is supposed to.. at least as far as I can see.....

Any Clues? Anyone?

Thanks

Mike

Open your macro pump code in the editor and single step the code... Do you get any errors?

Also please be sure that you have the code in the proper profile.

Thanks

Brian,
 I did open the macropump cpde, I single stepped through it and it all seems to work. It is stored in the Macros directroy in the proper profile subdir.  I Placed a Message command which should execute every 4 times the code runs..... I get nothing. The macropump is monitoring all of the inputs on the system. I have the inputs emulated by hotkeys for testing, so if I press the right hotkey the macropump should light the appropriate led... Right?

I think I must be missing something silly (As usual) but for the life of me cant find it..

Mike

Brian, This is the XML I am Using. The machine I am currently running MACH on is just a test platfrom to prove out the interface. so Its configuration is not necessarily setup completely or correctly. The FInal System is running with a GREX which I dont have connected to this one... and may possibly have a MOD-IO board as well... so If the Macropump issue might be caused by something to do with the configuration my apologies in advance.

Thanks

Mike

You need to have the macro named
macropump.m1s

and for that XML you need to have the file in the Mach3/macros/spRUNG directory. If you do that it will work... Also you need to restart Mach3 to activate OR change the macro pump.

Hope that helps

Brian, I am working on this project in a couple of places, on the machine I use at Home which is networked with work and accesses the same Mach DIR XML etc I get the Macropump Thread dummy pop-up, but on my system at work I dont get the popup. I am trying to test out the input configuration etc, I have this in my macropumo code to mintor Inoput and set an LED in response to an INPUT The Output 1 get activated on a Software ESTOP but that is about the only thing that happens.....I have never had much luck with inputs, my own system has the triggers assigned to buttons and not using the macropump as I could never get it to work..... so any pointers would be appreciated....

for a test put this line in the macro pump

Call SetDRO(0,0)

then try to jog the X axis ... it should keep writing the axis to zero

also if you would like to set the led you need to have a Call

Call SetUserLED(1000,1)


Hope that helps

Here is your code and I have tested it in the macro pump... so test this and see if it work..

Sub Main()

ES=GETLED(0)

If ES=True Then
  ACTIVATESIGNAL(OUTPUT1)
Else
  DEACTIVATESIGNAL(OUTPUT1)
End If

Call SetUserLED(1201,IsOn(INPUT1))
Call SetUserLED(1202,IsOn(INPUT2))
Call SetUserLED(1203,IsOn(INPUT3))
Call SetUserLED(1204,IsOn(OEMTRIG1))
Call SetUserLED(1205,IsOn(OEMTRIG2))
Call SetUserLED(1206,IsOn(OEMTRIG3))
Call SetUserLED(1207,IsOn(OEMTRIG4))
Call SetUserLED(1208,IsOn(OEMTRIG5))
Call SetUserLED(1209,IsOn(OEMTRIG6))
Call SetUserLED(1210,IsOn(OEMTRIG7))
Call SetUserLED(1211,IsOn(OEMTRIG8))
Call SetUserLED(1212,IsOn(OEMTRIG9))
Call SetUserLED(1213,IsOn(OEMTRIG10))
Call SetUserLED(1214,IsOn(OEMTRIG11))
Call SetUserLED(1215,IsOn(OEMTRIG12))
Call SetUserLED(1216,IsOn(EMERGENCY))

End Sub

Function IsOn(sig)
 
If(ISACTIVE(sig))Then
   IsOn = 1
Else
   IsOn = 0
End If
End Function
 
Main

thanks
