Have to hit home button twice?

Post by Tim G » Mon Aug 16, 2021 3:24 am

Hi folks,

I was hoping somebody could help me track down a small issue I'm having. When I first initialize/connect KmotionCNC to my CNC router, I have to hit home twice to get it to home. The first time it always acts like it's tripping a sensor on the Y axis (DRO goes yellow on Y). If I click it a second time, then all goes as planned and it homes fine. What's interesting is if I keep KmotionCNC open, hit the initialize button again and then try to home, I can get it to home on the first click. It only does this double-click deal when I freshly boot the KFLOP board, but it does so every time.

I do have a dual screw/dual servo setup on the Y-axis, so it makes me wonder if it has something to do with that. Any ideas on a troubleshooting process I could go through to track this down? It's not the end of the world to have to do this, but I'd love to work the kinks out.

Hi Tim,

When it fails what it printed on the KMotion Console Screen?

Also which axes are enabled on the KMotion Axis Screen?

Please post your C Programs.
