X axis will not home

Postby oahumakerspace » Sat Dec 30, 2017 7:40 pm

I just installed the E5 in an old Hurricane Agnes laser and the X-axis will not home.

When I turn on power, the display says "Resetting..."
The Y axis moves to the back, hits the limit switch. X axis does not move.
Y axis moves a little bit forward AND the X axis moves a little bit to the left.
The Y axis moves slowly backward until it hits the limit switch a second time. X axis does not move.
Then the Y axis moves approximately 10 cm forward AND the X axis moved approximately 15 cm to the left. The E5 controller will emit a long beep.

Using the arrow keys on the E5, I can jog the Y axis back and forward and I can jog the X axis right and left.

However the X axis won't move all the way to the right to the limit switch. I assume it is using the X starting point when it turned on as the origin.

I didn't see anything in the manual that allows for setting the X and Y homing independently.

Nevermind, I figured it out. The X-Axis LimitPolarity was set to "Positive" at the factory. I changed it to "Negative", saved it, and it now Homes correctly.
