    Default Syil X4 Standard - Spindle Computer Control

    I am setting up an X4 Standard with Mach3, but I'm having issues getting the spindle to be computer controlled using Mach3. I have attached the .xml config file (as a .txt file, unfortunately I can't upload .xml). I can control the X Y Z axes fine with Mach3, but am unable to start the spindle using the computer.

    I have verified that the spindle switch is closed, allowing for computer control. When the spindle switch is open, I am able to start and change the speed of the spindle on the machine panel, so the problem is not with the spindle itself. The machine was purchased less than a year ago, so I'm guessing something is just wrong with the configuration. I've tried the default X4 .xml files also but nothing lets me start the spindle with Mach3.

    Appreciate the help.

    Download the manual, i believe you need to go into to ports and pins and go to spindle setup. Make sure all the configuration are correct. I think in the manual it says what ones are supposed to go where. Also make sure your parallel port cable is good. If that doesnt solve the problem call syil america and ask for keith kennedy. He has helped me in the past and is really knowledgeable. Hope this helps

    I have all the connections and cables checked again,
    without success!
    Still the same problem, the spindle can not be controlled in CNC mode
    , only in manual mode!

    Question

    could it be because of the settings?
    In the manual, unfortunately there is nothing about the settings for spindle
    (Syil X4 +, built in 2008)

    Just got a machine like this, I understand it is an old post but it might help someone new.

    Spindle control (3rd picture) is disabled make sure you enable it and also enable output number you have chosen. If more info is needed I could post pictures of my setup.
