Mach Turn 1.84.001
« on: December 26, 2007, 06:53:41 PM »
Hello, I have been using the release 1.84.001 for turn, this was a good release awhile back, but wondering now if there is a newer, better version out, or if the turn version has even changed at all. I was looking for a debounce setting for the limits as I have had an ongoing pain with referencing but see that 1.84 has no debounce setting for limits.

You sure there is no debounce? I dont think I have ever seen a version without it but then again I never use it so may just not have noticed.

What version are you using, it must be ancient if you still have the logic tab from the config menu  :o

Mach2 Turn     6.11N     Ancient ? ? ?
Is Dave's version like the Mach3  R2.6 ? That's what I'm using now but I still have the older, (Ancient) one in my PC.

Ah sorry missed it was Mach2 and yes thats ancient LOL
I am not sure when things changed but I think 1.84 had the single General Config page. Will just go install and check it out.

Yes 1.84 still had the seperate Logic and State pages, so where you said to find it is correct.

Ver 1.84.001 is from May 2006, nearly two years old and with the speed that Mach moves thats a long time I suppose :)

Well, over a year ago 1.84 was a recommended version for turn, and I have lived with this limits problem since then, it's ok once you know how to get around it, but still a pain if you haven't fired the thing up in awhile to remember how to do. I will go back to the shop and have another look, I was looking where you guys said to look, config, logic, left lower corner, but it has debounce settings for spindle encoder, and another one I don't remember right now. The other one is set to 3000, I do remember that, but it said nothing on it about being for limits. Thanks,

Dave,
 the other debounce setting is for Inputs in general of which Limits are. However if you have it at 3000 already then I think your problems must be severe. What exactly is the problem you are having with the limits during referencing?

When referencing, the X axis causes the Estop to come on. I then have to open the limits flyout screen and turn off soft limits. Then reset the Estop. I then jog the X axis away from the switch, then turn the soft limits on again, and this fixes it. I don't have this problem with the Z axis for some reason, but the Z axis is a reference switch in the middle of the travel, so I always thought that that had something to do with it. I have had two different types of limits switches on the X axis, changed just for an accuracy reason, but the same thing has happened to both. Both the X and the Z axis limit switch wiring run in similar paths so I have reason to believe it's not an interference issue, and I never get false limit alarms.
