Shuttle RU
« on: February 05, 2020, 03:17:01 AM »
Hi;
I’m not sure that this is were I supposed to post this , but I will like some help
I have a shuttle RU , and the axis tends to run away if I use the jogging wheel , and it does until I press the stop button in the shuttle , or until I press the ESC in the keyboard.
Can someone please guide me on how to implement the ESC in one of the shuttle buttons? O I’m using the ESS , and Mach3
Thank you
Mariano

To implement the Escape (ESC) function on one of the shuttle buttons of your Shuttle RU while using ESS and Mach3, you'll need to configure the button's function within the Mach3 software. Here's a general guide on how to do this:

Open Mach3 software on your computer.

Go to the "Config" menu and select "Ports and Pins."

In the "Ports and Pins" window, navigate to the "Input Signals" tab.

Locate an available Input Signal that corresponds to the button on your Shuttle RU that you want to assign the ESC function to. This may require testing different inputs until you find the correct one.

Once you've identified the input signal, double-click on the corresponding "Button #" field.

In the "Edit Button #" window that appears, select the "OEM" button option.

In the "OEM Code" field, enter the code for the ESC function, which is typically 1.

Click "OK" to save the changes and close the window.

Repeat the process for any other buttons on your Shuttle RU that you want to assign the ESC function to.

Close the "Ports and Pins" window and restart Mach3 for the changes to take effect.

Now, when you press the button on your Shuttle RU that you've configured to send the ESC function, it should act as if you've pressed the ESC key on your keyboard, stopping any runaway axis movement.
