Hi

The breakout board is bob campbells version 1.8 ...I believe. And also a sound logic
encoder interface board sold by rogers machine. Both boards require a parallel port
cable. The Geckos are G320 and they run on a 53 volt supply. The encoders are E2
250 line US Digital devices.

Hi, Barry

May have a bad xml file.

Look in C:\Mach3\xmlbackups folder, It has backup xml's, Sort it by Date, Make a copy of the one that is just before the date you started having trouble.

Past it in C:\Mach3\ folder, Then re name it th Mach3Test.xml and load it, Give it a try.

With the boards your using there are a lot of special settings, It's probably the encoder interface board's settings your missing.

Thanks, Chip

Are you using 2 parallel ports, if so, is the second one configured for just inputs?

One parallel  port controls the breakout board and the other controls the encoder interface card
