    Default Dynapath 40 Control Issue (E-Stop)

    Greetings All,

    I have a Tree Journeyman 250 with a Dynapath 40 controller on it. When it boots up, I release the estop to proceed through the axis homing/referencing process but it keeps throwing an error code that the estop has not cleared, which is not allowing the motors to kick online. Does anyone have thoughts on how I could bypass this switch or figure out whats going on?

    E-stop is a normally-closed circuit that has to be complete for the startup to proceed. Any broken wire, open switch, bad contact or whatever will keep it from operating.

    This is a good thing. Machines are dangerous, an uncontrolled axis runaway will happily crush your hand, arm, leg, head, whatever. You don't want to bypass an e-stop circuit ever. You may need it some day.

    Find what's wrong and fix it.

    Make sure your off and away from the limit switches before homing. I need to take off the e stop and then press the reset button a couple of times at startup on my 40 50 60 controller to get it going.

    Mine does. All axis must have a lmit switch so as not to bottom the ball screws.

    And usually a normally-closed uh-oh switch, in case everythign else fails and the slide goes past where it's supposed to.

    Does the machine start? The green light on the machine start button blink, and then go solid when you press it? Any lights blinking on the control?
