Trouble activating relay thru breakout board.
« on: May 24, 2006, 09:20:12 AM »
I'm still having problems trying to activate a relay to turn on/off my plasma torch. I have the relay hooked up to the out 1 terminals on the breakout board from Campbell designs and I was trying to activate it with the spindle toggle button on the Diagnostics page with no success. When I hit the flood and mist buttons the respective lights glow on the Diagnostics page but still did not activate the outputs on the breakout board for output 1, 2 or 3.

Thanks in advance for any insight.

Did you set the ports and pins?

I set the spindle output device to output 1 and uncheck the not used box, I left spindle axis enabled and PWM control unchecked for the port setup and have Output #1 set to port 1 and pin 1.

Well it looks like it is turning on... Is there a setting on the board that is not right? also swap the pins 1 and 16 in the software and see if you can get it to work...
