flood / mist control - dust collect / vacuum hold down
« on: February 12, 2008, 04:03:00 PM »
im having trouble setting these up now....  was all working fine in mach2 of course, now im in the middle of the mach3 setup.

motors are tuned and working good, proximity sensors are working.

i have set up the output signals correctly.  in the output signal window i have:

output 1 - spindle  - port 1 pin 1
output 2 - dust collector - port 1 pin 16
output 3 - vacuum hold - port 1 pin 14

these setings worked in mach 2 and so i entered them in mach3...  now, how do i make the flood control and mist buttons make output 2 + 3 go??  when i hit these buttons it toggles the spindle on and off and doesnt effect the vacuum / dust...

however, if in the output signal window i select "active low" for either of these and they fire up...

i know im just missing a button in here somewhere....

Go to Ports and Pins then Spindle setup, you can then asign which outputs are for Flood and Mist.

Gentlemen,
  I'm setting up my 2 axis lathe with a relay board to control spindle,dust vaccuum, and  and if (on the computers' keyboard),
"s" key is spindle {M3} (yes, this works fine), and "c" key turns on and off coolant {M8} (yes
this works fine if M3 is already on-is this normal?), then which key throws M7 manually from the keyboard?
  Thanks!
