OK i can feel i'm getting closer but i could not find a duplicate of the "pid.x.enable" but i noticed its calling 2 .hal's. one is machine.hal and the other is plasmac.hal
could that be the problem?

Calling plasmac.hal and machine.hal is correct.

This seems to be the error.
HAL: ERROR: duplicate variable 'pid.x.enable'
PID: ERROR: loop 4 var export failed
pid: rtapi_app_main: Operation not permitted (-1)

twopass: load_the_modules cmd=<orig_loadrt pid names=pid.x,pid.y,pid.z,pid.s,pid.x,pid.y,pid.z,pid.s,pid.x,pid.y,pid.z,pid.s>

At a guess you have a line that says:
loadrt pid names=pid.x,pid.y,pid.z,pid.s,pid.x,pid.y,pid.z,pid.s,pid.x,pid.y,pid.z,pid.s

It should be
loadrt pid names=pid.x,pid.y,pid.z,pid.s

If not, check that this line is commented out with a '#" or deleted
#HALFILE                 = LIB:basic_sim.tcl

Failing that, post up your Hal file and I'll have Tommylight review it on the night shift :woohoo: :woohoo: :evil: :evil: :woohoo: :woohoo:

Should be:
loadrt motmod ....

i have looked through the ini and both hal files and i dont see anything. im going to load up my ini and both hal here and if you dont mind giving them a scan that would be amazing. if i need to start a new thread for this let me know and i will delete these posts.

First of all you posted two copies of the same file with the same name. If this is way your configuration is you will have problems. Second, do not modify the plasmac.hal file, it is still in rapid development and may change. Make all custom connections for your machine in your machine.hal file. I will look at these during lunch. Your .ini is two files merged together too, will not work.

We need to know where you have connected all your limit switches, homingswitches, float switch, ohmic probe, and arc voltage source to get you configuration fixed.

Ok, these should be close.

These will not work in their present state because you didn't post working .hal and .ini files for your machine. You will need to add all your limit and homing switches and other I/O. The voltage scaling in the plasmac branch works correctly now so enter your scale and offset values in the GUI. Do not edit the plasmac.hal file.

The branch was updated today so you will need to update your clone of it and fix your .ini to work with the current release.

May be the correct .hal will upload this time.

You will need to rename the file to machine.hal, the the attachment editor keeps adding stuff.

Thankyou I will try them when I get off work. The plasmac and machine hal are the same as I thought I made the machine version and then copy it to plasmac. So I might need to start over and not mess with the plasmac.hal

I reviewed my earlier instructions and added a copy of the machne.hal file John created for you as an example on this post.

Its still a bit of a work in progress.

Is this usable for production?
