Intermittant hesitations
« on: March 21, 2023, 04:16:18 PM »
I have Mach4, Pokeys57cnc and win 10.
I notice that occasionally during a standard g1 move that it will stop moving for ~500ms and then continue without a loss of steps or position.  My friend has 2 other machines running the same configuration and experiences the same behavior.  One of his machines is on the internet and other is not.
Any suggestions as to the cause and how to cure?

I have the occasional glitch like that but with an ESS.

I came to the conclusion it was akin to Run-out-of-Data. The ESS does alert you that is the case....but that warning can be suppressed also.
I assumed that I had suppressed to warning but was a fault of that nature.

A few months ago the problem became more persistent, even troublesome. Then I recalled my PC had not been turned off for about four months.
I shut the PC down, rebooted and the problem has gone away...almost. I make it a habit now to shut down the PC every month or so.
