  • [575] After reset of E stop, I get error message "RnR Motion Card Not Found". Have you any advice?

    If you are getting the message RNR Motion Card Not Found, the controller is shorting. Check the wiring to make sure you have all of the correct wires in the correct terminals. Check the voltages of all the terminals to make sure everything shows the correct polarity and voltages.

    Additional Information:
    Mine did the same thing. Try pushing the USB cable all the way into the port and slightly up. My usb port on the card is slightly oversized and breaking the connection. Ordering some USB type B connectors off of amazon, gonna try and re-solder a new port on the card before replacing the card.

  • [575] I cannot get the limits to work I’m normally open as you state

    Open the input signals dialog box by clicking on config, then ports and pins, then input signals. For each line item that you use (i.e. x++, y--, etc) make sure the port number is 3.

    Also, make sure there is a 24v power supply connected to the DCM and 24V terminals. One side of the NO on the limit switch must connect to the DCM, or the power supply V- terminal.

  • [575] I have my probe conected and have checked continuity but my probe does not show to be working. What else could be wrong?

    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?

  • [575] I have one of these but pc says device is faulty. If i buy one from you will you be able to fix such problems

    If your PC is unable to communicate successfully with the Mach3 USB controller that you purchased, the problem can exist outside of the controller. If the problem is with the controller, then my controller will work. If the problem is not with the controller, then the problem will persist.

  • [575] Why is a second PSU necessary for the limit switch and e-stop ?

    Because the USB board is powered by USB (+5VDC) from your PC. Your inputs (eg. limit switches) require up to +36VDC to operate properly.

  • THE DUST SHOE HAS STIFF BRISTLES, IS THERE PROBLEM WITH MOVING Z-AXIS DOWN SINCE BRISTLES PUSH AXIS SIDEWAYS

    A couple things to consider, the machine is most likely moving sideways, so the bristles won't be a problem. The lead screw has a very hight mechanical advantage and the bristles don't pose an issue with this. We have not found that the bristles cause any appreciable deflection to the work we do in our shop; however, you can change the brush for a more pliable plastic, or reduce the number of bristles by selectively pruning.

  • MY COMPUTER DOES NOT HAVE A PARALLEL PORT. WHAT DO I NEED?

    If your computer does not have a parallel port, all you will need is a low cost PCI parallel adapter card (these can be found on amazon for $15-$20). If you plan on using a laptop (not recommended) you can try to find a PCMCIA parallel adapter, but many people have frequent issues with this setup. A more expensive solution would be to purchase a USB smooth stepper board. Unfortunately, we do not supply any of these adapters and cannot attest to their reliability.

  • HOW SERIOUS A PROBLEM INFLUENZA (THE FLU) IN THE U.S.?

    Influenza is the most frequent cause of death from a vaccine-preventable disease in the United States. From 1990 through 1999, an average of approximately 36,000 influenza-associated pulmonary and circulatory deaths occurred during each influenza season. In addition to fatalities, seasonal influenza is also responsible for more than 200,000 hospitalizations per year. Rates of infection from seasonal influenza are highest among children, but the risks for complications, hospitalizations, and deaths are higher among adults ages 65 and older, children younger than 5 years, and people of any age who have medical conditions that place them at increased risk for complications from influenza.

    A novel H1N1 virus was first detected in March of 2009 and quickly spread to pandemic levels. In the U.S., it is estimated that approximately 43-89 million persons became ill with 2009 pandemic H1N1 from April 2009 to April 2010. The virus also resulted in significant hospitalizations and deaths among children, adults 19-65 years, obese persons, and pregnant and post-partum women.

  • [575] Is it possible to run board on usb power

    Yes. You don't need to power the board with 24V. The controller will work with only a USB connection to the computer. However, the Input and output terminals (IN1-4 and OUT1-4) will not work without at least 12V on the DCM and 24V terminals.

  • [575] Is there a way to use an X,Y plate that will only be responsible for corner finding?

    Yes, you can use a corner plate very easily. You will want to make a corner plate that has three independent plates that do not conduct with each other. Each of these plates will be connected to a different input (i.e. IN1 for X, IN2 for Y and IN3 for Z). The end mill or tool that is inserted into the spindle will connect to V- of the 24V power supply, or the DCM on the controller, which is connected to the 24V V-. Then, you can use the ref all home button on the program run screen of Mach3.
