Help with home switch setup.
« on: May 15, 2013, 11:36:23 PM »
How do you set the amount an axis moves away from the home switch after it hits it when referencing as it is still activating the switch and throwing an estop.Thanks Chris.

As far as I am aware you can’t set the distance because the axis needs to move off the switch only as much as it takes for the switch to be reset.
If you have ‘switch bounce’ then a false signal will be sent and this may be the cause of your problem.

Try increasing the de-bounce interval (Config / General Config) and see if this helps. (Ideally this needs to be set to the lowest, reliable, value which cures the problem).

Hi Chris,

You don't need to worry about the Mach3 debounce settings then. If you are using an SS then it has it's own settings to take care of this issue.  ;)
