    I can't find out which side of the terminal is positive for the 120 vac power that goes into my BOB. Does it matter?

    Do I need to place my e-stop so that it only kills power to the spindle and motors or do I need it to kill the power to the BOB and drivers as well?
    thanks

    I also have the spindle brake enable when I hit the estop.
    I turn off power to the drives and spindle but leave the
    bob on .I have the estop on the bob working.

    You should have 2 circuits.

    You should have a smaller 'Reset' Button that triggers the Reset input to mach.
    Mach shuts down the spindle its self when you hit the reset, but the drives still hold.

    Also, a Big 'Estop' kill button that turns off power (on AC side) to drives and spindle.

    You rarely hit the Estop (only in Emergencys) , but you use the 'Reset' all the time to stop the machine while cutting to make changes'

    Trying to run the Hyperterminal program. The Vipers came with a programming cable that has a 9 pin connection. I hooked that up to comm port 3 and put the parameters in, but nothing happens. Do I need an adapter to go to the rs232 connection?
    thanks

    I powered up the x axis and it held with a little resistance to movement in both directions, so I assume I'm on the right track!

    Be sure to set the Connection settings to
    Baud 9600
    Bits 8
    Stopbits 1
    Parity none
    and Flow control to 'None'

    Try the other com ports ( 1 ) if it has it. Make sure the plug on the drive is not pulled sideways making a bad connection.

    Yes sounds like the drive is holding, so the encoder is hooked up right

    Pins are not bent. I took some pictures and posted at [url]http:\\bullyztoyz.smugmug.com. I went to the help screen for hyperterm and it said to type in ate1{enter} to find out if the modem was working. It came back with "ok". It won't let me type in anything except the "ate1". If I change to port 1 it won't let me type anything in.
    What wire to pin config do I need to make for this to work on the 25 pin connection?
    Thanks

    Sorry i_r_machinist , you've lost me. Why have you got the modem in the mix ? It has nothing to do with a modem.

    Does your computer have 1 or 2, 9pin serial connectors on the back ? Thats where you connect the cable. Usually Comm 1 . So you have another computer or Laptop to try ? Don't try to use a 25pin serial port.

    Did you try without Mach3 running ? It could be conflicting with hyperterm.

    When you put 12volt power to the Viper you should see OK appear on the screen.

    Ok, Maybe Com3 is your modem, I think you should be using Com1.

    Set Hyperterm to Com1.

    I've tried comm1 but I can't get anything to happen. Do I need to start the hyperterm program and then plug in the viper?
