Can anyone help with info on setting up limit switches in EMC2? I
have read what I thought were the relevant sections of the
integrators manual but can't seem to find anything useful.
I have built a CNC router using stepper motors. I am using a CandCNC
mini-io board which uses xylotex pinout. I have installed a roller
arm micro switch at each end of my X, Y and Z axii. I have wired them
in series NC (normally closed). I am planning to connect them to pin
15. Then when I install the home switches, I plan to connect X to pin
11, Y to pin 12 and Z to pin 13. My Estop is connected to pin 10.
(The mini-io bd uses the xylotex pinouts.)
For example the estop (pin 10) connects to "iocontrol.0.emc-enable-
in" like below instead of pin 0.
linkpp parport.0.pin-10-in iocontrol.0.emc-enable-in
So if I have it right so far, then the homes would be --
X home would be --
linkpp parport.0.pin-11-in axis.0.home-sw-in
Y home would be --
linkpp parport.0.pin-12-in axis.1.home-sw-in
and Z home would be --
linkpp parport.0.pin-13-in axis.2.home-sw-in
What I really need to know is what pin do the limits logically
connect to (since all 6 limits are chained together)?
linkpp parport.0.pin-15-in ??????
axis.0.pos-lim-sw-in or what?
Thanks in advance for any help,
