FIFO Overflow Error
« on: September 28, 2020, 06:03:36 AM »
Hello,
I have been getting an error - FIFO Overflow Error - Vector level : 316 Buffer size 1622 and another time with Vector level :365 Buffer size 1754.
This has caused the board to disconnect and the job to stop. Is this a Mach4 issue or something to do with my HiCON board settings? - I guess it's the HiCON as the board is disconnecting when it happens.
Any Clues please?
Thanks
Steve

Hello,

Most likely the FIFO buffer level in the plugin system tab is set too high. Try setting the max buffer level to 80 and the polling frequency to 120 and see if this alleviates your issue.

Hi - Thank you - that did the trick, I ran a 2 hour programme with no issues this afternoon. I think in the past I increased the buffer as I got another error message about running out of data or something like that, but I must have went too far - anyway all good now.
Thanks
