ESS motion control device not listed
« on: December 12, 2019, 05:53:51 AM »
Hi all,
 I'm making the switch to Mach4 from 3 and having some troubles before I'm even out of the gate!

I have the latest version of Mach4 Hobby,Licenced, and the latest ESS plugins downloaded and copied these to files to the mach4 plugins folder.

But I'm not seeing the ESS listed when trying to load the motion control device in Mach4.

I've done the SCU ping test etc and that tests ok.

any help would be much appreciated.

Liam.

Liam, you need to go to the list of plugins, enable the ESS plugin, then restart Mach. Then you should see the ESS as an option for a motion controller.

The only plugins listed are:
Keyboard inputs
Modbus
Regfile
Shuttlepro
Simulator


I don't need to change the file name do I?

Oh!

I was looking under the plugins tab not the control tab.

Found it, thanks.
