Hi I have decided to update my BP series 1 CNC to mach4 using the galil plugin to a DMC4080 via steppers. Using the following setup works fine.

My current motor connections are A, B and C using External Driver Connections (A to D) STPA DIRA; STPB  DIRB; STPC, DIRC   i.e. Pins: 16, 19, 31, 34, 2, 5

With limit switches and home switches using I/O (A-D) Connections FLSA,  FLSB, FLSC; RLSA RLSB, RLSC; HOMA HOMB HOMC.   i.e. Pins: 36, 37, 38, 22, 23, 24, 7, 8,9

I am now looking to install an external probe onto the machines x Axis.  After reading the install PDF I am a little confused as to how to wire the probe up to the "Galil high speed position latch functions". 

Am I correct in thinking that the Galil high speed position latch functions pins are pins 1, 2, 3 on the I/O (A-D) Connector? 

Or do they refer to DI1, DI2, DI3 on the I/O (A-D) Connector?   

I think the latter is correct any assistance greatly appreciated.
