    I have some hybrid steppers not used them before and I'm struggling to get them to do anything,they have power and lock just don't respond to mach3, I presume I don't need the enable line
    I must be doing something wrong with the C's labs control or wired incorrect

    Any help once again would be great

    I do have the input switchs working for probe,home,end stops etc and the output to switch a relay etc

    Thanks

    Have you selected the "Enabled" (green tick) in mach3 ports n pins - motor Outputs.? This is all you need to do in Motor Outputs, forget the Step/Dir and Port pin numbers etc they are not used, (except the active high if need to change the step edge which can get into later if needed )

    That's all you need to do for the motors to work. Then you just set the steps per and tune the velocity etc in motor tuning.

    Also, watch those straggling wires, if they short you'll blow the drives.!

    Ye but they blow up just as quick on the bench as they do in the control box.!!. . Only takes 1 strand to release the magic smoke..

    Like I say for the motors you only need to enable each Axis in Motor Outputs all the rest you can ignore.

    I've had things like this happen before. Try reinstalling Mach3 and the Plug-in with a fresh install ie: Delete the old first and Don't install the parallel port driver when installing mach3.

    If still does it then I'd say yes could possibly be faulty but I'd be very surprised. I've fitted Dozens now and never had a faulty unit, I've killed a couple but that was my fault.!
