Hi Balazs,

Could you explain this, please? You can do it here, in a new thread or in a mail, I don't want to hijack this thread.

What is a "UC300ETH_hi and UC300ETH_low motherboards configuration"? Is there a way to configure each output so that after power up the outputs are in a state I want them to be? If yes than that's great because I always thought that powering on the UC300 is problematic without starting UCCNC or Mach3 due to the states the outputs are initiated after power on reset.

Thanks.

Hi Josef,

The UC300ETH_hi and UC300ETH_low configurations are for the UC300ETH module.
The module can be placed into different motherboards, like the 5LPT, M44, 5441 and the module detects the type of motherboard via one of it's analog pins.
There is one resistor on the module and another resistor can be connected to betweem the module's detect pin and the GND and the module reads the analog voltage on the pin which analog voltage is formed by the externally connected resistor and the internal resistor.
The hi and low configs are for the module when it is not connected to any specific motherboards, but is used standalone.
The difference between the 2 configs is if the I/Os are low or high in the inactive states.
The hi and low configs could be also used in self-made motherboards and the developer can configure the module with connecting different resistor values to between the detect pin and GND.

For the startup condition the solution is to use the charge pump signal and charge pump circuit to not allow the external devices to go active until the software startsup.
Also you can use the constructor macro M99998 to set the outputs to the required states, except the hardware type signals, like the M3, M4, step/dirs etc. as these are setup automatically and are not overridable, they have priority over the Set and Clr outputpin function.

Thank you Balazs for the explanation.

BTW, did you get my video I sent you yesterday evening? Not stressing you, just would like to know if Google Drive sent you the mail with a link to the video I made about the DHCP issues.

Yes, I saw it, thank you.
Please leave the video there as I'm not working on the network part, one of my collegues do, will have to show him the video, but he was too busy today, so hopefully tomorrow...

Thank you. I meant Dropbox... not Google Drive, but since you received, it doesn't matter. Yes, of course I'll leave it there.

Edit:

BTW, I will send you a mail. Just did some more tests.

UCCNC version 1.2029 is ready for testing.

Postby cncdrive » Wed Nov 09, 2016 3:41 pm

UCCNC version 1.2029 is ready for testing.
The download link: http://www.cncdrive.com/UCCNC/setup_1.2029.exe

Bug fixes and changes:

- Issue fixed with virtual mouse function leaving the DROs when clicked with the pointer above the DRO fixed.
- Focusoutoffields function was added to the plugininterface and macro interface. The function can be called to deselect the DRO (blinking cursor leave) which was selected for input.
- Issue fixed with the g-code line pointer stepped over with one line the M3 function if there was a feedrate change code in the next line, when the THC was enabled and the system was waiting for the ArcOK signal which did not come on. Now the g-code line pointer stops on the M3 line properly.
- Laserengrave plugin was updated with min. and max. pixel brightness offsets settings.
- Screen editor issue was fixed with Combobox Font size selection and save to screenset file caused a screenset error. Furthermore the Font size is now casted to integer to show as integer value in the Screen editor Font property field.
- The Utility tool in the /Util folder was updated with a bug fix which allowed to select the ethernet controllers even if the device was unpowered and had no connection anymore.
- Xbox360 plugin bug was fixed which did not allow the plugin to run in the background when the window was closed and in some cases caused the plugin to crash on closing.

UCCNC version 1.2030 is ready for testing.

Postby cncdrive » Sun Nov 27, 2016 5:02 pm

UCCNC version 1.2030 is ready for testing.
The download link: http://www.cncdrive.com/UCCNC/setup_1.2030.exe

Bug fixes and changes:

- Virtual mouse function was further developed. Now in virtual mouse mode on Enter keyboard key press the left mouse down is emulated and on keyup the mouse left button up is emulated. The enter key can be used to drag items, e.g. the rulers on controls. And the virtual mouse is now enabled also on sub-windows, e.g. on the g-code open window, so it can be used to open files.
- The user fields and checkboxes ID>= 20000 are saved in the profil on Save file button press and on software closing.
- The macroloops missed the EN-US cultureinfo setting, so there was a number format issue in the macros when run in the loops on non English Windows, problem fixed.
- The macroloops started too earliy, a bit earlier than the GUI finalised the initialisation, problem fixed.
- Mouse scrolling to move the g-code was added to the g-code viewer.
- HTML encoding problem for special characters was fixed.
- An option was added to the General settings page to precompile all macros on the software startup.
If the option is set then all macros are compiled on the software startup and will run from the prebuilt assembly when the macro is called until the macro text is changed. The macros call always checks and compares the to the previous macro text and if the macro text was changed then the macro is recompiled.
If this option is not set then the macros are not recompiled on the software startup, but they are still stored compiled after the first macro call and until the macro text is changed. If the text is changed then the macro is recompiled. The macros executes an avarage of 1000 times faster if precompiled.

UCCNC version 1.2031 is ready for testing.
The download link: http://www.cncdrive.com/UCCNC/setup_1.2031.exe

Bug fixes and changes:

- Modbus plugin packet send retry count did not set and remained on default value, fixed.
- Jog panel auto popup disable option added with option to pop on mouse click only.
- Macro executer bug fixed which disabled the macro runs on Stop in previous test release.(Was a serious issue and this is why the previous test release was withdrawn.)
- Macros precompile progress window was added to macro precompile option. The window shows the progress of the macros compilation on startup and the process can be terminated pressing the onscreen Interrupt button.
- Up/down type textfields with same ID did not update eachother, fixed.
- Plugininterface Informplugin and Informplugins functions were added, the functions can send and return generic objects between plugins and macros. (Example in the docs.)
- exec.Codelist function was added which function can execute a List of g-codes using the look-ahead (CV) buffer. (Example in the docs.)
- Feedrate<0.6 was not working with probing, fixed.
- Blink property was added to the LEDs screen objects, so the LEDs can be blinked in their on states if this property is set true.
- New screen item Slider was added to the screen editor. The slider can be used to control the value of textfields, it works like the Windows Slider control.
- Laser plugin min. and max. values were changed to show in percent instead of 0-255 and the full range of 0-100% is not allowed for both.
- Variable #5060 was added to indicate success and errors of the probing.
- Input triggers were upgraded from 48pcs to 96pcs.
- Output triggers were upgraded from 48pcs to 96pcs.
- Hotkeys were upgraded from 48pcs to 96pcs.
- Button codes to hide and show jog panel were added. Can be used to pop out and hide the jog panel with hotkeys or input triggers.
- Toolpath view mouse double click to reset the toolpath to top view and contents zoom function added.
- Unknown g-code Wait for Cycle Start option could stuck and not run in some circumstances, fixed.
- Softlimits did not work properly when using slave axis, the software still checked the slave axis's softlimits range while it should not do that, fixed.
- G10 L1 load tool table Z=null case was not handled and generated an exception, fixed.
- G10 L1 load tool table was working with 48 tools only, was now updated to 96 tools.

UCCNC version 1.2032 is ready for testing.
The download link: http://www.cncdrive.com/UCCNC/setup_1.2032.exe

Bug fixes and changes:

- Spindle pulleys ratio now scales the encoder resolution for rigid tapping operations.
- Q peck depth parameter was added to rigid tapping G33.1 and G33.2 to support peck tapping.
- The CV motion planner had a problem with miniature lines between 2 arcs, it slowed down the feedrate.
- 6pcs of Auxiliary encoder counters were added. (Only the ethernet controllers has and will have this new feature.)
- Spindle closed loop PID controller was added. (Only the ethernet controllers has and will have this new feature.)
- Feedrate set in macro with the F keyword was not working in some cases because of a syncronisation problem.
- OpenGL toolpath view farplane height was extended to see through extreme large objects which was a problem.
- The digitizing filename textfield for M40 got empty and caused an error message on M41 save digitizing file operation if the filename select was previously cancelled by the user.
- The JRO analog channel input if changed when the jogging was in the slowing down state and if in the same time a new jog button was pressed still when the axis was slowing down could cause the axis to continue jogging which could be stopped with pressing jog again or stop or reset, fixed.
- When jogged an axis to softlimits the other axes if any others were also moving and if they did not reach the softlimits then they stopped instantly, this was corrected to decceleration.
- Problem with Ismoving function that it returned false when motion stopped, but before the coordinates update in the position DROs,
this was now properly syncronised to the DROs. This problem caused the wait loops to return too early which could cause issues and also it caused problems with probing.
- Macro precompiling option if set could possibly cause a softwre crash on startup when the precompile window was closing.
- The Autoleveler plugin was updated (thanks to Cahit).
- XHC pendant plugin was updated to read the step distance from the step distance DRO instead of from the step distance buttons.
