TB6600 configuration issue servos won't move

Hello,

I have purchased a 3 axis TB6600 control board off ebay for a project i am working on but unfortunately i am struggling to get anything to move.

I have configured the pins as described in the following datasheet but whenever i run the axis test all that happens is relay 2 fires for a fraction of a second.

pappp.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/3_A...ard_Users_Manual.pdf

This suggests to me that the pulse signal is being sent to the relay channel. So i tried swapping the dir and step around and the relay fires and stays on. However, this happens when i test all tree axis.

I noticed in the datasheet pin 14 is listed as enable all so i searched the web and found the following solution:

forum.linuxcnc.org/27-driver-boards/2687...ble-axis-in-linuxcnc

which adds 3 lines to the custon.hal file but still doesn't work.

Can anyone tell me what i am doing wrong?

thanks

Jason

Welcome. It's always a good idea to post the hal and ini files from the config folder when looking for help.

I thought the tb6600 was a stepper driver?

Maybe try to tie machine.on to enable?

Not sure if I am on the correct track here but: In the hal file

setp stepgen.0.steplen 1 try 5000
setp stepgen.0.stepspace 0 try 5000

Please attach the correct hal and ini files.
Also what motors do you have, how are they wired to the board, what power supply, etc.

Are you getting any error messages?

He is using double step mode so 1 and 0 are correct, the "setp parport.0.reset-time 5000" line takes care of the timing.
