Dumb question - Chip removal trigger problem
« on: May 28, 2009, 06:23:44 PM »
Hi All,

I am trying to learn more about scripting and programing but have a long way to go.

My problem is this.

I need to be able to trigger an output for chip vac when my spindle is triggered but still be able to turn it off via a button.

By watching the Brains video I was quickly able to figure out how to make the chip vac come on when my spindle was active.  Problem is I can't shut it off via a button while the spindle is going.

I know to most of you guys this is probably remedial level stuff but I am "Brainless" when it comes to this stuff.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Podunk,
You will net to add an AND condition to be able to turn the output OFF with a button.

[Sipindle ON]------[No Op]--------|AND|__________[Output#4]
[Input#5]----------[No Op]--------|      |

Something like that, the output 4 will only be active when both spindle and output are active, if you turn either input off, Output 4 will turn off.

Hope that makes sense.
