X Axis won't stop when pushing external OEM button
« on: June 10, 2008, 04:17:05 AM »
Hi, this is my first post so will try to be as clear as possible

I'm in the middle of my project, building my CNC router table using Mach3. I wanted to try some OEM trigger buttons to test a futur control panel.

When I push and release the external button, X axis begin to move in the right direction but won't stop until I hit ESC on keyboard or Emergency button.

Checked voltage on pin 2, port 2, goes to 5v when pushing button and return to ground when releasing it.

Thanks for any help, will be very appreciated. Jeff

I think you may have to use a Brain looking at the OEM trigger when you want to use it for Jogging.

Hi, thanks for the reply, could you explain a little bit more about "brain looking".

I'm almost new to Mach3 so all those terms are new to me and English is not my primary language.

Thanks, Jeff

OK you will find the Brains editor from the Operator menu, you can do all sorts with Brains and they are much quicker than using the macropump. This is an example of a brain for jogging the X axis in a positive direction. I have not tried it but it should work.
I think there is a video showing how to use Brains but its fairly easy to pick up, if you have problems get back and someone will be able to help you I am sure.

On the operator menu, I can't see any brain editor choice, only - 1-Control offline,   2-Fixtures,   3-ToolTable,   4-Maintenance hours,   5-Vb script Editor

Maybe I'm missing something

Haaa!! Those newbie questions

Ostie, what version of Mach are you running? Can find out by going to top tabs, help, about Mach.

Hi, Ostie01

No Brain's in that version, R3.041 for sure, Maybe 2.63 has it.

Yes Chip is right, think brains  came in about 2.6 but not 100% sure however the lockdown (1.63)  definitely has them.

I've just downloaded version 2.6.....

Brain is in it, just removed old version from my computer that control my router and will install that version and will try what Hood told me to do and will see.

Will let you know how it turned out. Thank you very much for your help, really appreciated, Jeff
