I'm lookin for some help in setting up my Tool Setter in Mach3.
I have :
Win XP SP3
Mach3 .066 (Licensed)
Using CNC4PC C10 Rev 11.1 board for inputs
I Have a 5v DC power supply, (saw online that 5 to 24 volts will work)
Using the SK-66A-KC Tool Setter with N/O contacts for tool touch (Red & Grey wires) = Works OK
(Blue & Green wires) N/C contacts for Over Travel = Works OK

But I'm curious as to how the (Brown & Orange wires) are to be wired/used? Is there an built in LED that would light up?
I have the wiring diagram (see attachments) but by no means am I an electrician???

ThanX, MegaMoog

Thanks for looking at the schematic even though it did not scan well!

I kinda new/figured out that the (Brown & Orange wires) connect to the same pin outs as the (Red & Grey wires) do!
I just could not see the LED come on with only 5v. I turned off the light above my work bench n pressed the tool setter down n I could see a very dim light.
I might get a 24v power supply n use that for the Tool Setter n Probe. Use some resistors on the home/limit switches for the X, Y, Z, A, & C. (Not that I need the light but I thinks it would be kinda KOOL!) Tongue
That's one of the reasons I like using the MSM screen in that it has the second pp port on the setting page which helps in setting the pin outs for the connections.
I will be using the pins 2 - 9 and 10 - 15 for inputs on the C10 board via my second pp port.

Now I'm workin on getting the Z axis trammed n will be mounting the A & C axis trunnion... Smiley :shock:

Time to get back to the Lab n do some experimentin.....!!! 8-)

Thanks n hope this helps somebody thinkin of using one of these or similar units.
