Have you tried a different keyboard just in case yours decided to stop for some reason of its own?

Hey Peter



Nice to hear from you again. Keyboard and mouse are ok. When I plug USB in and out a few times, and switch between plugging into keyboard and pendant plug, then suddenly I have power. Then, at random times I seem to just lose power to the hub while using the machine.

I have had this problem in the past, some of the cheaper keyboards do play up. I now use logitech on both my mills.

I have been using corded keyboards for the last 10 years with Mach 3 and now Masso for the last couple of years.

Hmm, I have a Logitech keyboard and mouse. Having read a few threads it sounds like I need to move my controller out of the space that occupies my drivers and transformer. It is also directly behind a thin metal separator where the VFD is. When I turn my spindle on I get noise on my screen as well.....

Hi @jcapitao I ran into some issues that sound similar to what is happening to you. My problem turned out to be a motor contactor influencing the usb outputs of the Masso. Maybe a couple of pics of your setup would be helpful in finding the problem

Hi Justin, are you able to,run a program without any issues?

i would try moving the usb cable and monitor cable away from that vfd as much as possible first, you might get lucky, and if it runs a program without interrupting or losing contact with the USB ports you should be good. Hey it might be easier to move the vfd if you need to.

Yeah mate, that sounds like a good idea. I actually just bought an MPG for the machine, and as you can see, my 12V powersupply is in the way, so i might just move the MASSO controller up in behind the monitor, and then it might solve all my issues. Sounds like these VFD's create a heck of a lot of electrical noise ;(
