    HY-JK02-M and 2m542 weard behavoir

    Hello!

    I've got a new 2m542 driver and a HY-JKM5 breakoutboard.

    I'm running mach 3 and I'm having trouble with controlling the breakoutboard.

    example:

    setup according to Chinese manual of HY-JKm5:
    X step = pin 2 dir = 14
    I've put this information in Mach 3

    Hook up the 2m542 to the x axis on the HY-JKm5, test the arrows on keyboard and nothing works. But the LED on the B axis of the HY-JKm5 is lighting up when the x axis should light up.

    As a test I've connected the 2m542 to the B axis and now I've got a working stepper, but only 1 direction! That is weird.

    Next test:
    according to HY-JKm5 manual:
    Y step= 3 dir=16
    put that in Mach 3

    when I press the arrows Z and A axis light up at the same time, not the Y axis.

    Could that indicate that my breakoutboard is DOA? Or am I missing something here?

    FYI:
    the connections from the HY-JKm5 to 2m542:

    HY-JKm5------2m542
    N-------------Dir - & PLS-
    D-------------Dir+
    S-------------PLS+

    When I disconnect dir+ the stepper changes direction.



    Here is a small movie about the problem!

    Solved!

    There was a fault in the manual, the pin number were faulty, next to that in Mach3 MAXNC mode was selected from installation.

    When I was watching mach3 installation guides on youtube I noticed the difference and that solved the problem.
