The setup of the MP3000 Series Interface involves the installation ofMACH3 software and some support files on the PC to be used for themachine controller. While we will guide you through the setup for MACH3the MACH3 manual gives more in depth instructions on each feature.Familiarize yourself with the controls on the MP3000 and with the loadingand operation of MACH3 with the proper profile. The initial part of thismanual is devoted to getting MACH3 properly installed with the rightsupport files and profile to run the MP3000. After you have the softwareinstalled and the cables and satellite cards hooked up you will be guidedthrough a series of tests to determine if everything is working. We ask thatyou go through the setup and manual in the order presented. If at somepoint you cannot get the expected results and check your connections andsetup with no success then call our tech support person (also the engineer,assembler, tester, webmaster and marketing guy!) at 903-364-2740. Whilewe work a lot of strange hours we may not always be available to answerthe call so leave a detailed message of the problem and how to get in touchwith you will hear back from one of the staff.

Installation and setup of your MP3000.

There are a series of steps you must complete to setup and interface theMP3000 with your PC and Your Plasma torch

Install and setup the Primary parallel port in your PC

Setup and configure the first serial port (COM1) on your PC

Install MACH3 software

Copy your MACH3 license into the MACH3 main folder

Run the install program from the CandCNC disk to load customscreens and setup files and Plug-ins

Open MACH3 and check screens and configure the PLUG-INs

Connect the 2 PC port cables (one 25Pin, one 9 Pin) to the front ofthe MP3000

Connect the Table I/O card to the Table I/O port on the front of theMP3000

Connect the Axis I/O Card to the motor drive modules, or the EZPlugGecko cards (stepper or servo) via the provided MTA100 Card

Run a quick series of tests to confirm the ports are working and thatMACH3 is configured correctly

Do final checkout.

Setup and test any Expansion Cards (DTHC or Spindle Speed)

Fire up the machine and cut a test file.

INSTALL and SETUP PRIMARY and/or SECONDARY PARALLELPORTS

NOTE: USE THIS SECTION ONLY IF YOUR PC DOES NOT HAVE A BUILT-INPARALLEL PORT and/or SERIAL PORT OR YOU HAVE PURCHASED THEMPG101B HAND CONTROLLER THAT USES A SECOND PARALLEL PORT.

Use the same procedure to install a primary (PORT1) Parallel Port (if yourPC does not have one) or a second port. Do not attempt to use twoseparate parallel port cards of the same type to get two ports. For twoports use a Dual Parallel Port card. CandCNC stocks low cost parallel andparallel/serial PCI expansion cards.

Make sure the card you install has drivers for the version of Windows you arerunning. Win2000 drivers may or may not work in XP (or visa versa). When youinstall the card in your computer and turn it back on, it should find the newhardware and when prompted, you should use the disk that comes with the portcard to install the correct drivers. There should be instructions with the card onthe proper way to install the drivers.

After you install the parallel port and Windows recognizes the port(s) then openthe device manager from the Hardware section under Windows /ControlPanel/System and open the Ports icon and find the Port entries. Open that andclick on the resources tab.

Write down the first number in the Input/Output range (DE00 in this case above). We willhave to enter that number in the MACH3 setup procedure later

You will have to setup the COM1 serial port in Windows. It should be setup with9600 baud, 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, no Flow control.

Testing: We will test the functionality of the com port after we hook up theMP3000 to the computer.

Start Install of MACH3 software by clicking on the MachProgram/ file . If you alreadyhave a version of MACH on the PC, you will be prompted to upgrade the version. Let it upgrade. If you have aversion than 3.042.20 then be aware that while there will probably be no problems we have not testedthe custom drivers (plug-ins) with versions after 3.42.020.
