Add a waiting time to the movement of the axes
« on: May 09, 2020, 04:17:05 PM »
Hi, I have a little problem.
can you add a time when you start the spindle so that the axes wait a certain period of time before moving?
I ask this because sometimes it happens that there is not enough electricity for everyone, especially if the wife uses the electric oven or washing machine.
this drop in current brings me errors.
the spindle motor is the one that draws the most current at start-up.

Are we talking after midnight when the demand is low?

Or this will delay all movement until it times out

See the Mach4 configuration chart at:  Config > Control - Spindle Tab

The values in the column labeled Accel Time are used to pause motion until the spindle comes up to speed.
