Start by making a backup of the existing installation:
Make a backup of the configuration and file installation, we recommend creating a backup of the current installation by right-clicking in the current installation folder and zipping it.
STEP 2: Download, extract and copy the wxPlasma_Probe.set into the Mach4 screens directory.
STEP 3: Configure\Plugins\ESS V278.1\Pins Config
STEP 4: Configure\Plugins\ESS V278.1\Input Signal
STEP 5: Configure\Plugins\ESS V278.1\Output Signal
STEP 6: While the G31 command is probing, you should see action on the Probing LED.
STEP 7: For testing the PTS-1 you can use this code with does not require any special macro. Not that you could modify your post to generate the required probing commands.
SAMPLE PROBING GCODE:
N0060 G31 Z-10 F40 (Start probing axion on the Z-axis to a depth of up to 10mm and Set the Probing Speed 40mm/sec) N0050 F800 (Set the cutting Speed 800mm/sec) N0070 G91 Z 2 (After probing move the Z-Axis 2mm up. This sets the motion to relative mode) N0080 G90 (Set motion mode back to absolute) N0090 M62 P5 (Activate Output 5) N0100 G04 P2000 (Set a Pause of 2 seconds to allow the pierce time.) N0110 G01 X5 (Cutting a 5mm square.) N0120 Y5 N0130 X0 N0140 Y0 N0150 M63 P5 (Deactivate Output 5) N0160 G01 X0 N0170 M30 (End program.)
