My Probing don't working
« on: March 20, 2020, 02:34:18 PM »
Hello

I bought a CNC control board from china and configured the Mach3 according to the manual of the board, everything works perfectly, but I'm having problems in the probe. I start the macro and the X axis begins, but when the probe does the grounding the X axis continues to work and force the cutter, what may be wrong ? Below this my setup and the image of the board I'm using.

My Configuration



My CNC Board



 If anyone can help me,Thanks

first off all, go to diagnostic and have a look for the digiitze Signal,
does it come up if you hold your clamp to the cutter?
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

Hi, I think it will need some power supply, maybe the 24V, you should have it in the board manual ...

Hi

Yes, I have the USB Board Documentation and Board Schematic and my Macro.

USB Board Documentation
https://www.buildyourcnc.com/Documents/USB%20Motion%20Card%20STB4100%20Manual.pdf

Board Schematic


My Macro
Code: [Select]
Rem VBScript To center probe inside a pipe

Dist= 20.0 'Maximum detection depth 20.0
ZDist = 4.0 'When finished, put a knife 4.0
If GetOemLed (825) <> 0 Then 'Check the probe if it is disconnected
Code "(Probe plate is grounded, check connection and try again)"
Else
DoSpinStop()
FeedCurrent = GetOemDRO(818) 'Save the feed rate
XCurrent = GetDro(0)
YCurrent = GetDro(1)
ZCurrent = GetDro(2)

Code "G4 P1" 'Pause 1s
Code "F25" 'Adjust the speed more slow

Rem Probe left

XNew = Xcurrent - Dist 'probe 20mm to left
Code "G31 X" &XNew
While IsMoving() 'wait for the move to finish
Wend
XPos1 = GetVar(2000) 'get the probe touch location

Code "G0 X" &XCurrent
While IsMoving ()
Wend
'rapid move back to start point

Rem Probe right

XNew = XCurrent + Dist 'probe 20mm to right
Code "G31 X" &XNew
While IsMoving()
Wend
XPos2 = GetVar(2000)

XCenter = (XPos1 + XPos2) / 2 'center is midway between XPos1 and XPos2
Code "G0 X" &XCenter
While IsMoving ()
Wend
'rapid move to the x center location

Rem Probe up

YNew = YCurrent + Dist
Code "G31 Y" &YNew
While IsMoving()
Wend
YPos1 = GetVar(2001)

Code "G0 Y" &YCurrent
While IsMoving ()
Wend


Rem Probe down

YNew = YCurrent - Dist
Code "G31 Y" &YNew
While IsMoving()
Wend
YPos2 = GetVar(2001)

YCenter = (YPos1 + YPos2) / 2

Rem move to the center

Code "G0 Y" &YCenter
While IsMoving ()
Wend

Code "F" &FeedCurrent  'restore starting feed rate
ZClear = Zcurrent + ZDist
Code "Z" &ZClear
End If       

Thank you for help me.

you have to have 24V power, just as I sent the picture, yours is the same, then checked the diagnostics card in Mach to see if the light comes on when touched ..
