How to add LED's to Control Panel for Jog Modes.
« on: September 30, 2010, 05:21:32 PM »
Hi All,
I added pushbuttons to my control panel for Jog Cont. and Jog Step. Now I would like to add leds so I know which is active. I wired an led with a 220 ohm resister from 5vdc source to BOB2  pin1. Then in Ports & Pins/Output/, I choose  Output2 and entered 2 for ports, and 1 for pins, and choose Active low. Wrote a brain with Jog Cont Led as input, to Pass Signal/No Operation to Output2. The brains switches on when I'm in JogCont, but the led always stays lit. What am I doing wrong?

Hood,
I spent the last 15 min trying to figure out how to attach a file. Would you tell me how this is done?

It seems to be working fine here. See the screen capture I took and posted on youtube.

Do you see the same when you view the Brain and work via the flyout screen?

Hood,
Yes! I get the same action. I shut down the system for about 5 minutes and rebooted.... It works fine now!   I hate when I can't find the cause of these malfunctions! Thanks again Hood.
