 :D  LOL, now what ever
made me think it was one of you two ?  :D

QUESTION

btw, what type of relay do you use to start your spindle ? solid state to trip a bigger relay?
I have 24v relays to start spindle, but will need less volt relay for mach to trigger them.

thanks guys ,and good to find good people with a sense of humor.
LOL :D

Ed, when did the wife start smoking? ;D
 My spindle on the lathe is controlled by a contactor with a 24v coil and I use a PLC to operate that via ModBus. You could use any kind of relay that operates from 5v, solid state are more expensive but I suppose they may last longer.

OH, SO YOU RECOGNIZED HER?  :D
You didn't know I married Bretts sister. :D

Can't  I just use pin 17 through my PMDX To a 5v relay?

Why when I go to a wizard page , I can not exit. I have to close mach and restart ?

Well I kind of thought that, certainly a strong family resemblace ;)

The PMDX 122 (That what you have? ) has a relay on it, you could use that to switch another relay or I suppose even switch the spindle itself if the  current and voltage are within specs of the relay. Personally I wouldnt switch directly as it would mean your AC would be right at the PMDX and it introduces possibilities of noise. If you dont have a contactor then using a larger relay switched by the PMDX one would be a decent solution, think I would go higher on the coil voltage than 5V as again noise is less of an issue but that will depend on your machine and whether you already have 24V. My lathe and the mill I am doing at the moment have 24V on all of the control side of things such as limits.

 Wizards should go back to the main Mach page when you press the Exit (return to mach in some) Sometimes they can take aa while to go back depending on the macro they use and how much its calculating however it shouldnt be any more than a few seconds. Which wizards are you havng problems with and which version of Mach are you using.

Hood,
using v 2.63. tried a couple different wizards. rec pocket cir pocket. won't exit.   I have v 3. on machine and that one works.

My motor starter relays are 110v which I was going to trigger with the 24 v relay which would be triggered by a lower volt relay.
I suppose I could tigger the 24 v relay through the pmdx relay, but what if I want reverse?  ??? ???
Going to bed now with Bretts sister. Gotta get some more bags. she keeps burning holes through them.  ;D
Thanks

Ed, Have a look at opto 22s site. You can get an opto relay that will switch 30 amps operated by 5V for about $30.00 I think and it is opto isolated.

Finally got my z axis working right. When in MDI- g0z1.000 , would only move .125. :-[
 did more motor tuning backed off on accel, and changed steps to 4000.
 working good now. :D  homing and limits coming up now.Have to make some trippers to mount on table.
Bretts sister says  UGHHHHHHH- UGHHHHHHHH  ;D
