Without active lo enabled the led is lit and turns off when I touch plate to bit.
With active lo enabled the light is off until contact is made.

I checked the voltage of the pin I have the plate hooked up to and it reads +5v.  If I run the resistor from pin 10
(which is in use by my homing switches) which is also +5v what will happen? Do I have my probe in the wrong pin?
I tried another script and same issue, z runs up.
Am I trying to "jump" +5v to the probe pin which should be reading +5v?

Which pin did you connect the 10k to?

I think that is the issue.  I was looking into bringing it high with a resistor.  Can I check the screw terminals on my BOB for an available 5v to attach the resistor to with my multimeter? I am a little worried about checking them willy nilly.
Will I have to enable the pin I select in outputs to find 5v ?
I hate having to ask these stupid newbie questions, thanks for your patience.

No,  the Z is correct.  I am wondering if I need to bring the pin up to 5v with the resistor trick.  I can get it to so the Z moves down when I run the script but I have to set the pin to emulated.  When I do that I get no response from contacting the plate to the alligator clip.  If I turn off emulate the digitizer light in diagnostics is lit and contacting the plate and clip cause it to go off.

Here is the xml.  It is in a earlier post I made titled Y axis Sticking.  http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=17985.0;attach=26015

Tweakie,
I am having the same issue here.  I loaded a script in the Auto Tool Zero Button that is sending the Z straight up in spite of the pin active low or emulate settings.
I am using a xylotec board.

Figured it out.
