Who doesn't need an emergency stop? I don't like the sound of that one bit.

This has been solved anyway, thanks for the help, i think we've established that MosChip boards are the way to go and not the cheapy triangular ones. :)

Full testing showed that the outputs worked but not the inputs. The first machine does have an E-Stop but it's wired make to stop not the break to stop, so no input still allowed the machine to run.
Going to get one of the MosChip ones.

Hey guys,

I need some help getting my PC to talk with my Zenbot

I have a Moschip PCI card that appears to be communicating with my Zenbot but I can't get Mach 3 to control it.

Zenbot sent me a config file but it won't "take" - I have copied it to the MAch 3 folder but the settings don't change. Zenbot says this happens sometimes and doesn't have a fix. They tired talking me through a manual configuration ubt nothing works.

I can get the head of the CNC machine to move slightly when I change the settings on my PCI card but I wonder of I have the pin settins in Mach 3 wrong.

Can someone tell me what settings they are using?

Phil
