How to configure your axis and your I/O in MachineLogic on MachineMotion
Once you are connected to MachineMotion open the configuration window to:
• Configure the axes:
1- Press Add Drive to add an axis.
2- Type the name of the axis.
3- Fill in the axis type. If you are using a custom actuator, you need to insert the gain accordingly.
4- Select the direction of the movement. Need help with that? Check this post.
5- Fill in the micro-steps by default at 8. If you want to use a different micro-stepping, you have to change it on the hardware level first.
6- If you are using a gearbox, select the checkbox.
• Configure the I/O:
1- Press Add Input/Output to add an I/O.
2- Type the name of the I/O.
3- Select the I/O type, either an input or an output
4- Select the device number (1 to 3). The device number corresponds to AUX port to which you connected the I/O module.
5- Select the corresponding pin of your I/O. You have 4 inputs and 4 outputs on every I/O module (0 to 3).
