Pause & Resume Buttons
« on: March 09, 2009, 04:53:11 PM »
I have wired 2 push-buttons to Input Pins #12 & #13 respectively and have configured then as "Input1" and "Input2", "Active Low"

Is there a way to tie these switches to System Function "Stop File" (to pause) and "Run" (to resume operation)?

Thanks...

You could also just set them up as OEM Triggers rather than Inputs, then go to Config menu then System Hotkeys, you can then enter the OEM numbers for the functions you want. 1000 is Start, 1001 is FeedHold

Hey guys,  I took a look at the Brain forum and that led me to a video explaining how to use Brain Files. I think that feature is simply awesome! I set up the Brain file that pappabear sent me and it works perfectly!

Thanks, both of you for your help

Yes Brains are a nice feature, I use a few in Mach but wish they could do a few other things, then again Scotts MAD Plugin adds some of the features I would have wanted in the Brains :)
