    Default Program stops at this line, any ideas?

    Hi guys running some parts today and everything is running fine for several tools and then suddenly stops right after a toolchange and just does nothing. Buttons are still greyed out as if its running, but it just doesnt run the next line. If i halt and restart on that line it runs fine. Any ideas? Here is the code:

    N2540 (M3 TAP DRILL)
    N2550 T5 M06 ( NO. 39 DRILL)
    N2560 (MAX - Z2.)
    N2570 (MIN - Z-.3899)

    N2760 T6 M06 (M3 X .5MM TAPRH)
    N2770 (MAX - Z2.)
    N2780 (MIN - Z-.51)

    N2910 G94
    N2920 M05
    N2930 M100
    N2940 G0 G90 G53 Z0.
    N2950 G54
    N2960 M01

    Its stopping on line 2790. I included the code from previous tool, format is basically identical and that runs fine?? Stops in the same place every part.

    Default Re: Program stops at this line, any ideas?

    Looks like the problem was with my machine and not with Kmotion. My high range tensioner wasnt retracting all the way after going into low range. And my M3 program was just sitting there waiting for the conformation signal.

    I should probably add some time limits and error messages to these while loops. Anybody know if theres an example program already done on displaying an error if in a while loop for a certain period of time? Something that could be easily added to this code that caused the problem on my machine:

    Code:
    if (!ReadBit(154) && ReadBit(156) && (spd <= 2300)) // stopped, in high range and s less than or equal to 2300
    	{
    		ClearBit(156); // disengage high
    		SetBit(157); // engage low
    		while (!ReadBit(1041)) // wait for high idler home signal
    		{
    		WaitNextTimeSlice();
    		}
    		SetBit(154); // spindle on cw
    		SetBit(159); // Turn on air seal
    	}

    You might try an approach like this:

    Code:
    include "KMotionDef.h"
    #define TMP 10 // which spare persist to use to transfer data
    #include "KflopToKMotionCNCFunctions.c"
    
    main()
    {
        double TF = Time_sec() + 3;  // timeout in 3 seconds
    
        while (ReadBit(46))  // wait for something to happen
        {
            if (Time_sec() > TF)  // Timed out?
            {
                if (MsgBox("Tool Change Timeout.  Halt?", MB_YESNO | MB_ICONEXCLAMATION) == IDYES)
                {
                    DoPC(PC_COMM_HALT);
                    return 0;  //exit program
                }
                else
                {
                    TF = Time_sec() + 3;  // continue and timeout after 3 seconds
                }
            }
        }
    }
