    A couple things that stand out, is you go straight to a G3 from G0, and I'm wondering if Mach is then using rapids for the arcs. In which case from my understanding, Mach isn't controlling the motion profile, it's simply passing the required movement to the KFlop to handle at rapid speed.

    Also you don't need to continually define G17. G17-19 are Modal, which means once set, they stay set until changed. Most controls will default to G17 anyway, so you usually don't even have to define it.
    I don't have the. G code anymore.

    Some experiments.

    Tom, can you help me with a code for the main program for axis enable via binary input?

    When i power down Indramat i want k-flop to disable axis. Now when i power down and start it back up, all axis "jumps".


    And how can i fix Feed Over Ride in Mach 3 to respond instantaneously?

    Thx.

    Hi swat cat,

    When i power down Indramat i want k-flop to disable axis.
    How would KFLOP know you powered down the Indramat (I assume that is your analog amplifier) ?

    Now when i power down and start it back up, all axis "jumps".
    What do you mean by "Start it back up" ?

    And how can i fix Feed Over Ride in Mach 3 to respond instantaneously?
    There is no easy way to do this. You can reduce the delay by reducing the amount of buffering in our Plugin Configuration. Otherwise you would need to change the Mach3 Screen to add a Hardware Feed Rate Override and send the value to KFLOP.

    Hello. Indramat is the Servo Driver. I will use an Opto In from Kanalog board.
    If i power down servo driver, Kanalog will still try to compensate an error, and will start increasing Analog voltage until it will reach maximum value.When i power on servo drive,it will start to move cause of the voltage.

    I guest i need to link mach3 screen to hardware. Don`t you have a mach3 screen with all the fixes for the dellay?

    Hi swat cat,

    Yes if you interface the Drive Status back to Kanalog then you can monitor it and disable all of your KFLOP Axes. Then hopefully you can re-enable the servos in a graceful manner after power has been restored.

    You might start with the EStopDisablesAll.c example shown below.

    HTH
    Regards

    Code:
    #include "KMotionDef.h"
    
    // Watches for EStop Input and disables Axes when detected
    
    main()
    {
        for (;;)  //loop forever
        {
            WaitNextTimeSlice();
    
            // if ESTOP present disable any enabled Axis ??
    #define ESTOP_BIT 180
            if (ReadBit(ESTOP_BIT))
            {
                if (ch0->Enable) DisableAxis(0);  // axis still enabled?  - Disable it
                if (ch1->Enable) DisableAxis(1);  // axis still enabled?  - Disable it
                if (ch2->Enable) DisableAxis(2);  // axis still enabled?  - Disable it
            }
        }
    }

    I have some issues:
    1.i have home position set to 0,0. When i cycle start the g code te machine goes over the machine 0 point , in to hardware limits. After i hit stop and rewinde all is ok. Is going to machine 0.

    2. G code request a tool change but not updating actual tool.Must type manualy.

    3. Tool offset are weird. In the video, make tool change, cycle start. It takes a tool offset. But it s not the set one. I press stop and type again tool number the it takes the good tool offset.

    Have you looked at Centroid or DeltaTau for motion control? You're trying to mix hobby stuff with professional equipment. I don't think it will end well. At best you'll have a professional machine with a hobby shop control, and all the problems and shortfalls that come with it.

    There are no problems or shortfalls with the Kflop/kmotion system. Everything works very well and you have the flexibility to do anything you want with it. Its an amazing package if you take the time to set it up properly.

    Some of the original posters problems are caused because he is using Mach3. There is no need to use Mach3 with Kflop, everything you need to do can be done with KmotionCNC and there wont be any compatibility issues. Using Mach3 adds complication and is a step backwards in performance IMO.

    I'm not that familiar with Mach3 Tool Offsets and its hard to follow what you are doing and read the GCode.

    But do you realize that in GCode the Hxxx word normally determines which tool offset to use not the Txxxx word? It seems to me to use the offset for Tool #20 you should have a H20G43
