Ok.... I got it....

lot of choices?

I had 1 of the switches NO, and the others NC....

In the plugin it asks to have them all Active Low....

In ports/pins you have the option for Active low too...

They all have to be the same..... Including the swictches...

I hope this was it, I still do not understand why it ran so well on Sunday and Tuesday????

Btw:Camsoft had really no effect in doing the requested tests....

My suggestion to anyone else... Set all active low in both places, hook the switches up NC (normally closed) because Galil likes NC...

I may be back on this, but all wish me luck......
Hey THANKS 4 all the help in advance. I'll need more than you'll ever expect!!!

Is there any reason that the referance all will start the homing sequence, but after hitting the first switch not back off the switch and lock up the rest of mach.. This is where the esc key is used...

Now if I referance Z then X, Y in any order but one at a time it will work?

Ideas???

I have seen noisy switches do this on PP systems but not sure it will pertain to the Galil. You using the default screen set?

Hello,
You need to home only one axis at a time with the Galil :( This is a limitation of the Galil..
Thanks

The sequencer that runs the homing cycle is not capable of processing simultaneous homing. With a rewrite of that section it is posable to make it work BUT it works very well as it is now and I don't want to break it :).

How does it work well? It will not work unless you do one at a time?

It woeks well if you do it one axis at a time, Multi Axis homing should not kill a machine :) You should only need to home the machine when you power it up..

The only reason I use the home referance would be for a fixture, in which case I need to ref all axis home.

I also wanted to check up the machine during a very long program...

It does not kill it, it hangs up on the script some how... If you hit the ref all button, it will start with Z but when it touches the switch it will not back off, causing the machine to do nothing until you hit esc... but it will not continue the sequance as it has been stopped...
