Question #: 14901

Question: [Mach3 USB Interface Board] I have my probe conected and have checked continuity but my probe does not show to be working. What else could be wrong?

Current Solution

Try the probe connected between the input and DCM with just wires connected to those terminals. When you short the two wires, you should see the change in the diagnostic screen.

Make sure that the probe configuration is correct:
Config -> ports and pins -> inputs tab
on the probe line, make sure the pin number matches the IN number on the controller. Make sure that the port number is 3. And finally, make sure the active low is set correctly. Toggle the active low to toggle the normally open and normally closed state of the probe.

Additional Information:
Nothing changes in the diagnostic screen, however the Digitize led is lit. One wire on in4 the other on DCM. If I were to put a multi-meter to any of the pins would there show any voltage?
