Hey Keith,
Just installed ver. 4.50 with no issues.
Love what has been done with the VCP. Everything is much clearer now for us DIYers
Keep up the great work on making Acorn more user friendly.
Thanks :D :D

Hello & HELP!

I just added a couple of push button normally open switches to make use of the Wizards new features - 2nd Cycle Start and 2nd Feed Hold.

Input 3 for 2nd Cycle Start and Input 4 for 2nd Feed Hold.
They work fine, But I've lost cycle start and feed hold on the VCP - ALT S - Spacebar and MPG.
What am I doing wrong?

I followed procedure - cycle Acorn re-booted CNC 12 etc.

Attached are reports from before and after changes.

Thanks in anticipation of your help.

Edward

Hi Edward,

I had the same issue when I added a pushbutton to input 7 for a second cycle start. I was instructed to go into the diagnostics screen, Alt-I, and invert the input that you used for those inputs. Here's a link to the PDF.

I know someone will be able to explain it far better than I did but this should get you going.

Hello Shawn,

2nd Cycle start etc - SORTED!

Followed your instructions and my start and feed hold work fine.

Checked the wizard setting after making changes in ALT I information screen and found that my inputs now show as normally closed.
Counterintuitive but works so thanks a bunch!

Where would we be without the forum members and guys like Keith at centroid!

best regards,
Edward
