There was a thread here a week or two ago with a circuit to connect the two devices to a single input.
Another option is to create two Mach3 profiles.
And a third option is to use a Brain, to trigger the probe input when another input is triggered, so they can be wired to separate inputs.
The two profile method, (at least for me) is much like changing the input from active high to active low everytime I want to change probes. Very messy.
In my searches I hadn't seen the circuit discussion. Being a electronics nerd, that has appeal. I'll look that one up.
The Brain approach intrigues me. Know zip about programming Brains makes me interested in this approach just for the learning adventure.
First thoughts - It shouldn't be that hard to program some sort of flip/flop that would monitor an input and change the probe input state on a monitored input change of state.
1. I would need a "Probe tool changed" button so I could tell the brain this is the new "non-active state". Is there a way for the brain to automatically tell the tool was changed?
2. The brain would need to run continually to accommodate wizards and such. Would that eat up processing resources?
3. Would the delay between detecting monitored input change of state and changing the probe input state be sufficiently short not to impact location accuracy or cause tool or probe damage?
So, any suggestions on the logic needed to program a Brain?
