Do you have any other loads connected to PoKeys device?

Weak pull-up resistors are already built-in. If longer wires are used to connect signals to PoKeys device, additional external pull-ups (1 kOhm) are suggested.
If internal pulse generator is used, there is a requirement for 470 Ohm pull-up resistors on step signal pins (see the manual on Pulse engine and Mach3).

Hi, Adrian

The revision v1.2 should already have the pull-up on the probe input installed. However, this still needs some additional tests and until these are confirmed, we suggest adding an additional external pull-up.

Update the software and firmware to the latest version and you will have that option. Latest version for 56 series is 3.1.68.

Hi, CharlyMai

Scroll to the end of the list in the 'Mapping' section of the settings. You will find Pulse engine related outputs there. See our blog post on that: http://blog.poscope.com/pokeys57cnc-pinout-explained/

PoKeys devices use active-low state for the inputs (all have pull-up resistors). So, switches and other sensors must be connected in such a way that they make a contact between the input and the GND.

As Max pointed out, most users won't be using sensors values at all, so there was no real necessity to support them directly.
Since Mach4 can communicate with the PoIL diagram (created using PoBlocks and run in the device), one can read the sensors in PoBlocks and forward them to Mach3 via 'PoIL shared slots'.

You can use any free pin you want or relays. See the pinout diagram for PoKeys57CNC.
Otherwise, the procedure is the same, so yes, you have to map them as with 57E.

The analog output is galvanically isolated and can handle limited amount of current (<50 mA). Check the input impedance of the VFD's analog input.

Update to the last Mach4 plugin. There was an important fix for that. See this blog post: http://blog.poscope.com/updated-pokeys-plugin-mach4-released/
