Thread: Problem with my Z axis
Hi Guy's I need some Help Please?
I'm having a problem with my Z Axis motor tuning . The settings are listed below. It goes in both directions when I use either of the Z+ or Z- tabs. Have any Ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
The wiring has been checked and double checked. I'm running the jog rate at 45% and it keeps going in one direction and then reverses the direction. If I run it at 100% it does nothing.
I listed the settings below
I'm using M542 drivers.
* Manufacturer Part Number: 23HS45-4204S
* Motor Type: Bipolar Stepper
* Step Angle: 1.8 deg.
* Holding Torque: 3.0Nm(425oz.in)
* Rated Current/phase: 4.2A
* Phase Resistance: 0.9ohms
* Inductance: 3.8mH+/-20%(1KHz)
You don't say what the voltage of the power supply is that feeds the drives?..Clive

Sorry about that. They are 36Volt
It could be your Keyboard.!! . . . .Try another. I've had this type of thing happen before and it's been the keyboard related.
If that doesn't work and your 100% sure your wiring is ok then Re-install Mach3. Also if this is a Dodgy copy of Mach3 that came with the BOB then dump it and download the latest Lockdown version from Artsoft site.

So I was using a Logitech wireless keyboard and just switched it to a direct USB plug in keyboard and it works fine.
Thanks for the help Guys.
