Programable buttons
« on: March 01, 2008, 02:20:11 PM »
I posted last time

I Have 3 machined running Mach 3 and they all do this.  When pressing an external start button My spindle comes on as it is suppose to, but some times I get a momentary output on output #1 It lasts for maybe .5 seconds. If I cycle the maching using the on screen start button it never dose this. I have try ed changing the pin# and the output #, ran shielded wire to my start button, and it still dose it. Here is my G code program it is very simple

X -00.000 Y00.00000 Z00.00000 F550.00
M11 P4  -----> this one too will blink on for just a .1 of a second this is my machine on 
G1 X -00.010 Y00.00000 Z00.00000 F030.0
M11 P1   ------> This is the output, it turn on at the same time as the spindle and stays on .5 seconds then shuts off and then turns back on

for anybody reading this post,, I installed a j-pac from http://www.ultimarc.com and ran my cycle start and stop through the j-pax and have not had one issue.
