Hello again. I am sorry for the late reply.
I have caused the system to not break down.


when I run the code with T0101m6 I only get activated (output 9).

  I've tried to change

(If Not IsActive (Input22) Then
       NewTool = 1)

to

(If IsActive (Input22) Then
       NewTool = 1)

It should be right in my case.

But nothing happens spindel just keep rotating :(

try this code, now you should see in Status line witch TC place is detected by the Inputs

Code: [Select]
OldTool = GetCurrentTool()
Tool = GetSelectedTool()
MaxToolNum = 4      'Max number of tools for the changer

Message "OldTool: " & OldTool & " NewTool: " & Tool
Sleep(200)

If OldTool = Tool Then
Message ("Selected Tool already loaded")
Exit Sub
End If

While Tool > MaxToolNum
Tool = Question ("Enter New Tool Number up to " & MaxToolNum)
Wend

Call StartTool

While NewTool <> Tool
   Call CheckPins
   While IsMoving()
   Wend
Wend

Call StopTool

SetCurrentTool(NewTool)

'//// Subroutines /////////

Sub StartTool
   ActivateSignal(Output8)
   'Code "G4 P4.0"    'Wait for the tool to rotate past the sensor
      While IsMoving()
      Wend
End Sub

Sub CheckPins
   If IsActive(Input22) Then
      NewTool = 1
      End If
   If IsActive(Input21) Then
      NewTool = 2
      End If
   If IsActive(Input20) Then
      NewTool = 3
      End If
   If IsActive(Input19) Then
      NewTool = 4
      End If
  Message "NewTool= " & NewTool
  Sleep(200)
End Sub

Sub Stoptool
   DeActivateSignal(Output8)
      While IsMoving()
      Wend
   ActivateSignal(Output9) 
      Code "G4 P1.0"    'Wait for the tool to rotate onto ratchet stop
      While IsMoving()
      Wend
   DeActivateSignal(Output9)
      While IsMoving()
      Wend
End Sub

added some more debug info in this code. pls run this code and (assume you use Mach3 Standard
turn screenset) go to Diags. an use the History Button.
post the Textfile after running the macro.

Code: [Select]
OldTool = GetCurrentTool()
Tool = GetSelectedTool()
MaxToolNum = 4      'Max number of tools for the changer
debug = true

If debug = true Then
Message "OldTool: " & OldTool & " NewTool: " & Tool
Sleep(200)
End If

If OldTool = Tool Then
Message ("Selected Tool already loaded")
Exit Sub
End If

While Tool > MaxToolNum
Tool = Question ("Enter New Tool Number up to " & MaxToolNum)
Wend

Call StartTool

While NewTool <> Tool
   Call CheckPins
   While IsMoving()
   Wend
Wend

Call StopTool

SetCurrentTool(NewTool)

'//// Subroutines /////////

Sub StartTool
   ActivateSignal(Output8)
   If debug = true Then
Message "Output8 On"
Sleep(200)
   End If
   'Code "G4 P4.0"    'Wait for the tool to rotate past the sensor
      While IsMoving()
      Wend
End Sub

Sub CheckPins
   If IsActive(Input22) Then
      NewTool = 1
      End If
   If IsActive(Input21) Then
      NewTool = 2
      End If
   If IsActive(Input20) Then
      NewTool = 3
      End If
   If IsActive(Input19) Then
      NewTool = 4
      End If
  If debug = true Then
Message "NewTool= " & NewTool
Sleep(200)
  End If
End Sub

Sub Stoptool
   DeActivateSignal(Output8)
   If debug = true Then
Message "Output8 Off"
Sleep(200)
   End If
      While IsMoving()
      Wend
   ActivateSignal(Output9) 
   If debug = true Then
Message "Output9 On"
Sleep(200)
   End If
      Code "G4 P1.0"    'Wait for the tool to rotate onto ratchet stop
      While IsMoving()
      Wend
   DeActivateSignal(Output9)
   If debug = true Then
Message "Output9 Off"
Sleep(200)
   End If
      While IsMoving()
      Wend
End Sub

I want to try with a simple macro.


ActivateSignal(Output8) when (input 22) is on then DeActivateSignal(Output8)

ActivateSignal(Output8)
If IsActive(Input22) Then
DeActivateSignal(Output8)

End if

Code: [Select]
ActivateSignal(Output8)
While NOT IsActive(Input22)
Sleep(50)
Wend
DeActivateSignal(Output8)

would be the code for a simple test
