Mach3 Dir Signals

Postby trwalters001 » Wed May 11, 2011 8:02 pm

Hi All,

Does anyone know what state the direction signal outputs are in when Mach3 is started?
Can they be initialized to a known state?
If I use one of those signals to control the laser, I want to be able to have the laser off at startup! :shock:

There is no guaranty and they usually change states a few times during start up. The laser should never be on when Mach3 is not in control.
