After further investigation, solenoid is the culprit. Fastest1, thanks for replying to this post. I was unsure if it was the pc or the machine causing my problem.

If neither of those did anything, I would remove the blue and brown wires for this test and jump the terminals on the solenoid with a source to test it statically. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk.

This takes an RS input from the PC.
On theI shudder to think what kind of havoc could result from a silly programming error, like a rapid X move at dozens of bennchman per minute, without a limit switch to catch things Will keep you posted Then check that your serial port is configured for the correct speed for your mill 19, bps. I also have a prolight lathe I need to retrofit as well.
As if the seal in the cylinder is bad or a solenoid is acting up. Problem brnchman is finding a replacement part for it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk.

There bencbman couple of retainer clips on top and bottom, I will try to remove them and see I could dislodge the cylinder. Retrofitting Prolight 4-axis mill Haven’t gone inside the electronics yet, haven’t seen it yet but will be pulling everything we can out of it, and retro with probably Gecko 3XX servo drives does use servomotorsrun with Mach3.
Using the original software is out of the question, for other reasons. The time now is Make sure you start the machine first then run the software Henry. I replaced it with a new solenoid; it is working now. The time now is After further investigation, solenoid is the culprit. Why not a plug?
Presumably all 4 axes use conventional quadrature encoders, but just in case, anyone know for sure? Ok, so now I understand. By jskene in forum Benchtop Machines.
My Prolight that I just bought a month or so ago uses a commercial 3-axis Animatics servo driver. Fastest1, thanks for replying to this post.
Need Help! PLEASE HELP!!! on air supply to benchman vmc
I guess that would happen after storing the unit for over 10 years. A lazy man does it twice. Doesnt it need the pressure retained for a drawbar or auto tool changer? I’ve done my own and another Prolightso am comfortable with the process I’d like to be able to use Mach 3 with the mill, as the original software is very old benchmann difficult to use.

The limit switches I find to be a pain on myso ignore them. This is indicated on page E3 of the ProLight Dos manual available on this site: The motors should have encoders.

This is pretty old, now, but worth the question. If neither of those did anything, I would remove the blue and brown wires for this test and jump the 2000 on the solenoid with a source to test it statically.
