I am using a haas cnc mill. For some reason when I use my macro program to touch a tool off, the machines moves to the tool setter position and the "z" move up and down maybe .05" a few time and throws an alarm stating "Probe Open"... It is acting as if I have my probe in the spindle and is trying to set my works "z" offset. Which it should not be doing due to the fact that I am not running that Macro Program. Normally When I touch my tools off, it will feed the whole way down to the setter and set my tool. And just to clarify I have been running cnc machines for over 8 years and yes I am using the correct program
I wanted to see if taking the probe out of the machines carousel would solve the problem (To make sure it was not sending any signals to the receiver) but the same thing happened. The Probe does not have a micro switch to turn it on either when inserted into the spindle. It is activated by a signal from the receiver when the probing macro is ran. I even reset the machine multiple times.
Is there any parameter or setting that I can turn the probe and receiver off until I need it?
Does anyone have any suggestions?
