Plugin that works for Chinese mpg pendant
« on: January 15, 2020, 09:12:34 AM »
Hello guys,
I recently purchased a mpg pendant from ebay it is the typical 4 axis jog pendant wired it does not have an enable button or a e stop all it has is the axis selector and x,y,z,a selector and the dial encoder. I have tried using every plugin , brain that I could find and nothing works . I have a hp a1140n desktop running windows xp pro with the 3.066 version of mach3 . I added a 2nd printer port and a c22 board . The problem is when mapped the keys/functions mach3 acts like it does not see the change so am I missing something or doing something wrong . Like I said I have tried every thing I can think of I have even went back and had all my wiring checked by someone else for a fresh set of eyes and it all looks right . Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do to gain control of my axis selection and my resolution selection

if it is hardwired to lpt2 you will not Need any plugin at all.

here:

is an example for a hardwired pedant.
anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

The pendent I am using is a little different than the one in this setup
1) I dont have a enable button on the side of my pendent.
2) The pendent I am using does not have an e-stop  button on it

I dont know if these differences will matter i have a c22 board but i can also plug the pendent directly into the pc as well
