Homing slaved axis
« on: April 10, 2010, 06:33:04 PM »
Hi all...

On a gantry machine if I have and X and A axis and I use RefCombination(9), will it home the first switch to hit home then the other switch?   Or will it always home the X first then the A?  If the latter is true, I'm wondering what happens if the A switch hits home first.  Seems that it would over-run the A switch a little and home the X, but then with the A switch already activated, how would it then home the A side?  I'm considering changing to a two motor system and want to make sure I understand how slaving works.

Thanks very much.

They home at the same time, but independently.
