So I ran a job (in Carbide Motion) a few days ago on my Nomad that seemed to complete fine (I had to leave it unattended for the last few minutes of the job).
I just sat down to run another job and when I tried to jog to set my zeros, Carbide Motion did nothing other than showing its homing screen–no motion from the Nomad. I tried UGS, and for machine status, it says (in red boxes) Active State and Alarm.
When I enter $X the Alarm state goes to Idle. When I then click “Return to Zero”, nothing happens (other than a subtle brief sort-of-clicking sound from the bottom of the Nomad when I quit UGS or CM). When I click Soft Reset, I again get the alarm state.
I’ve moved all the axes on the Nomad to their limits with the unit powered down (can’t move them with power on, of course). I’ve quit everything and rebooted. I’ve even unplugged the Nomad and waited for the blue powersupply light to finally go off. All to no avail. I’ve run many jobs and never had this happen.
Mac mini with OS 10.11.5
Carbide Motion 3.0.357
Older software, I know, but it has always done what I’ve needed so I’ve seen no need to rock the boat. Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
