Sage I'm not confused and I do one thing at a time. Lets forget about the XML, I was only trying to send you this file in case you need it but perhaps my 2 computers perhaps did whatever they did, forget about this

Tweakie re wiring the X & Z limits is kind confusing for me, is the attached file about re wiring the limits ok?

Tweakie:
It might be expediant to draw a complete connection drawing like you just did for ALL the inputs along with the settings for mach. Where you have the word "Switch" insert "X-limit" "Y-limit"  etc. etc.

Unfortunalty the XML is key to the signals getting to mach properly. If it changed then you'll need to put it back the way it NEEDS to be to work for each input.

No, good try but not right. See diagram.

Thanks Tweakie I will do that, lots of work, perhaps 1/2 hour

Sage, the XML in my CNC computer did not change

Good: Continue on. Perhaps it would save you some time if you made a diagram FIRST and post it here on what you plan to do. Basically like Tweakie's diagram but label the switches (blue boxes.) for ALL your switches AND the touch plate. No sense doing it all over later.

Nicolas,

Just to be sure I have altered your diagram to reflect the same series connection of the switches although I am sure that you know what to do now anyway.

Thats better because I had problem figuring how to do the wiring on the last switch of each axis

Let me see if that makes sense to me physically

Sage I will make a schematic as soon as I know how to do the wiring

Nicolas,

I am sure you will figure out the way to do it.

I'm off home now, I will check on your progress on Monday.

Nicolas:

See if this makes sense to you. There is more than one way to do this. I think I understand what inputs you have available.
This should work for you. It's not much different that what you started with. All the switches a NORALLY CLOSED.
It just re-organizes it a bit to free up input 13.

The A-home signal could also be put in the series string with the rest of them freeing up input 12 as well.
But  it's a bit more logical to have it separate.

All the grounds can be from thesame terminal. I just show them separate so the diagram doesn't get too messy.

You'll need to do the programming in MAch to have all the limts set up for pin 13and A-home on 12. Set them all for ACTIVE HIGH.

test them all on the diagnostics screen. The lights should be normally OFF and come on when you activate any switch.

Got to go out for a while. Hope you can figre this out.
