Plate Marker not working

Post by Voodoo_01 »

So I am a little puzzled. I am running a plate marker / Air scribe. I have it set as the P9 function when manually operated the air scribe works as it should. It is output A on the Auxiliary. When I run a program that only calls for the engraver it will touch off then run through all the motions but never actuates the air scribe when running a post processed program. With the program running and the diagnostics tab open the output is never triggered. Any thoughts?? FT 02 ohmic sensor with bladerunner g5 super Z

Are you actually calling it in your gcode? Do you have a marker tool set up in SheetCam and are you using that tool in the operation? Need more information.

Yes it was set up correctly before I moved. No problems with plasma or engraving. I used a previous job that was saved and wrote a new job. still cannot get the engraver to fire in program. I can see plate marker on and plate marker off in the line code

the key statement is "before I moved" you may have a loose connection or broken wire in the circuit.
