Cycle Start with an Input?
« on: November 22, 2011, 10:46:30 AM »
Hi all,

I need to start a CNC Plasma machine with an input signal... ???

I have to work with a contact. When the contact close it should start the cycle. Any idea how to do this easy and quick? I don't know how to use the signal on the B.o.B to actually start the program to run.

Any help would be appreciated!

.Set the Port and Pin number that you are using for one of the OEM Triggers in Ports and Pins, Inputs page. Next go to Config menu then System HotKeys and in the box at the side of the OEM Trigger you have used enter the OEM code you wish. For Cycle Start it is 1000.
