Motors not turning
« on: October 23, 2021, 03:36:50 AM »
Hi,

I'm bench testing a new setup running Mach3, Pokeys57cnc and a DMM-Tech 6 motor servo system. I can run the spindle from Mach and the e-stop works so it looks like Pokeys is working OK. The servo motors can run using the DMM-Tech tuning cable plugged into my laptop and when Mach is in control the motors are holding position but cannot be moved by jogging. None of the axes are inhibited in Mach. I've double checked the pin outs on the looms that run from pokeys to the drives and all is good. Any ideas what is wrong?

Thanks

Got this sorted. The default settings in the DMM-Tech drives is not for Pulse/Direction which is what Pokeys and basically every other breakout board in the hobby cnc field uses. I have reset this with the drive tuning software and the motors now work.
