Controller Software locking up

Postby JDJIM1 » 23 Mar 2017, 21:32

I have used the CNC USB controller Software with a MK2/4 for some time with no problems, I upgraded my machine with a Spindle and VFD. Now when the spindle is turned on The Controller software start program button grays out not allowing me to start the program. I am sure the the VFD/Spindle is causeing an electrical interference. The question I have is the interference causing the problem with the controller or computer? Any ideas on where I should start troubleshooting?

This occurrence interferes with the USB communication, which as a results drops and communication between controller and PC is terminated.

You see, electro motors, VFDs etc...are sources of EMI and therefore your wiring and other devices should be properly shielded and filtered. You would need to use shielded cables and use line filters for VFD. Also controller needs to use external power supply for its stable operation. ... lerMk3.pdf (page 32)
