    This will enable the drives when Mach is Reset and disable when Mach isn't.

    If you want an extra layer of safety then run this signal thru your E-stop relay. So Enable can only happen if E-stop not pressed. This way the Axis won't be enabled even of Mach is reset( Which it shouldn't if E-stop is done correctly)
    So I need to simply bridge between terminal 14 and 15 of the IRTA Drive. What function do I use on the CS Labs unit? Analog Out? Does this push out a voltage or does it simply close a circuit and work as a softswitch?

    If I look at the analog out options, I have Analog output 0 (0-10V on pin 7) and Analog output 1 (0-10V on pin 8). I would have thought I needed to use the digital outputs? Sorry, a little bit confused, just want to 'make' a connection between 2 points.

    Actually, from the 15 pin breakout, i dont have a wire to allow a bridge. Something else is holding out the DER relay, need to find that.

    This could be changed later but needs rewiring.

    OK, DER Relay working, it was the door latch holding it out.

    Drives enabled, no movement yet. Not sure how to configure anything related to steps or similar, do I need to with a servo?

    OK, Y moves when I push in the DER manually. Not sure why - I dont know if the machine is trying to home or something else. If I restart Mach 3, does it 'forget' what it was told before?

    Glad ive got movement, not sure whats impacting DER relay yet. It was the door latch, thats sorted, something else is now holding it out. Looking to try and reverse the direction, where is the 'jog wheel' in Mach 3? Ive seen a pic of one, is it a plugin?

    you may be on the limits for any of the three axis, that would keep the estop off.

    I think so too. Im trying to move it to the centre to be sure Im not at a limit switch but I cant get it to go Y +, only Y -.

    LOL, once its sorted, its easy. Still a lot of stuff to understand but getting there. Movement is an achievement, even if I cant fully control it yet ;p

    Now, need to understand all the things that trigger DER relay and then how to reverse direction on these 'analog' servos.
