Hi/Lo pin Sleep Decrease motor current
« on: August 09, 2021, 02:57:43 PM »
My name is Martin, former ch.eng. KPTC now retired and living in the Netherland. I am converting my homebrewed 3d mill from PC-NC under DOS to Mach3 with RTM200E adapter from USB to LPT.
My drives have a sleep input to reduce motro current when not moving.
Hi/Lo pin under Config>Ports and Pins is working when running G-code but the signal is not lifted when jogging from the touch screen. When disabled jogging step and contineous via the touch screen is working.
I have tried both macro's and brains in vain to solve this. Only when the jog touch is released the signal goes only briefly from sleep to run and directly back again to sleep.

Who has tried the same and possibly solved? Any suggestions are welcom.
Tnx in advance
Martin
