PoKeys 57U, Mach4, Buttons and you.
« on: December 26, 2018, 06:32:40 PM »
Hey guys - n00b here. So, first, I tried the search function and didn't come up with anything since it's apparently broken. I did google it, and found a thread with what appears to be exactly what I need, but can't get to the thread. ugh.

So... first off, I am relatively 'technical', but LUA is confusing.

I am looking to map signals via Pokeys 57U to physical buttons for the normal stuff, like coolant/mist on/off, spindle etc. I have the simple stuff working - like cycle start/stop. I am 100000% certain this has been covered, but again, with the broken search - it's nearly impossible to locate. I'm hoping someone has a link saved, etc.

BTW, I have the PoBlog link and that got me started, but it seems very generic. If I had a working script in front of me, I could dissect and reassemble for my setup.

TIA

Here's some code for you! You'll need to setup your inputs in your device settings and Mach4 settings then code like this goes in the Screen Start script in the Signal Library section. I included ALL of mine, but it should give you a clue where to start. There's coolant/mist, spindle on, setting speed to 1000 (Mach4 doesn't remember the last speed when shut down so this is a work around for me trying to start the spindle with no speed set!!!) It's commented so you should be able to figure some stuff out for the basics.

Thank you Tom I see how Pokeys pins are associated with and read as Mach4 I/O pins but Mach only has 64 pins. If I had 80 pins on my Pokeys devices how would one read input pin 75?

Thanks for any help.
Tony

Tony,

PoKeys inputs don't have to match Mach4 inputs. You can assign whatever PoKeys input to any of the available Mach4 inputs. I guess you won't be able to use all 75 PoKeys inputs, but 64 at least!! I have a 57E so only 55 inputs, not 75, but nonetheless.......

So in Mach4, Config/Plugins/Pokeys, configure pin 75, back to Config/Control, inputs tab and set that to whatever Mach4 input you like. Then write your code.

If I misunderstand, well, that's pretty normal:)

Tom

Thanks Tom,
I just noticed in the Mach4 API there is 150 output and 185 input "pins". I guess I could use an unused function like ISIG_MOTOR31_HOME ,Motor 31 Home, for a custom function. I'm just trying to understand all this before I buy the Pokeys57E, PMDX424 controller, 4 Gecko G320X servo drives and Mach4 license.

Edit: Or is there a way in code to set and get the state of the Pokeys device pin directly? Example please.

You passed me up now. No idea about all those inputs/outputs or functions!!

Sorry,
