MACH3 Pendant Features

Jogging -When used in conjunction with Mach3, the pendant provides Velocity mode and Multi-Step jogging. The multi-Step jogging provides accurate distance movement of the selected axis and has 3 selectable jog increments. In velocity mode, the pendant provides a smooth axis movement where the speed of movement is determined by how quickly the MPG is turned. The pendant caters for 6 axes, selectable via a rotary switch.

Referencing - A referencing push-button is provided to allow for axis referencing. Once an axis is jogged to the reference position, pushing the 'SET' and left enable button simultaneously results in that axis being referenced. It is necessary to press both the 'SET' and left hand enable button so as to avoid inadvertently referencing the axis.

Feed Rate Override - The feed rate override allows adjustment of the feed rate from 5% to 300% with the upper limit being configurable via the Mach3 plug-in.

Spindle Control - A push button is provided to start and stop the spindle

Cycle Start, Cycle Hold - Cycle start and Cycle hold push buttons are provided to control the machine and to aid efficient tool changing.

Enable Buttons - Left and Right enable buttons are provided. The pendant may be configured to optionally require the buttons to be pressed when using the pendant controls. Note: some actions such as referencing, the enable button use is mandatory.

Axis Selector Switch - The switch caters for 6 axes and also includes an Off position to allow for other forms of jogging.

Jog Increment Switch - This switch selects the increment size and also selects the jogging mode.

Emergency Stop Switch - The pendant includes an Emergency stop switch with the switch contacts being accessible via connectors on the breakout board. Additionally the pendant notifies Mach3 that the switch has been activated.
