Manual jog buttons on a control panel
« on: January 25, 2015, 03:11:57 PM »
Hey guys I've built a small cnc plasma with stepper motors and drivers.  I'm wanting to build a control panel separate of the computer that I can have right at the cnc table. Basically just want jog buttons and an estop switch on it. The estop will be easy..but I'm not sure how to wire up the momentary switches for the jog. It would be kinda cool to be able to jog it around without the computer, but I know that I'd need some way to pulse the drivers. Any ideas guys?

As long as you have enough inputs you can hook them up and configure them as Jog buttons in Config menu then Ports and Pins then Inputs, Jog buttons way down the bottom of the list.
