I am kind of new to CNC. I got a prolight 1000 CNC mill and added new steppers and a G540. I played with Mach3 a bit and I can get it to do the basics with simple G codes. Mach3 outputs charge pump on pin 16 just fine.
I installed EMC2.2.8 with a go live disc in dual boot configuration. I created my-mill profile using stepcon and assigned charge pump to pin 16. I can monitor the parallel port output pin (16) with a scope. It starts out high and goes low when EMC2 starts but it never changes.
I found this in a old thread so I tried adding it to the .hal file.
setp charge-pump.enable 1
EMC2 will not even start up with that in the file.
What am I missing???
Should I just disable the charge pump and move on?
