Title: Probe
Post by: tantrim on July 17, 2009, 01:57:41 PM
I am running a Gecko 540. I ran a wire to Input #4 and another to -V then clicked on Config-Ports and Pins-Input Signals. There I enabled Probe, changed pin# to 13, Changed active low to green check.  At this point I am manually touching the wires together after clicking on the Z button in the Automatic Tool Probing screen.  As Z axis moves downward I touch the wire together and it makes a rapid movement down an additional 1/2" or so before moving up.  What do I need to do to correct the move down after the wires have been touched together?

Hi, Tantrim

Look at this Post, It's probably what's going on with your setup.,5673.0.html

Try typing a G49 on the MDI line and Enter key, Then try it again, See if that Helps.
