Rapid feed button brain
« on: August 25, 2013, 07:28:19 PM »
Hi guys,

I see that Mach3 lets you wire a push button switch direct to an input pin and, provided you have enough input pins, you could have an X++ X-- Y++ Y-- Z++ and Z-- on a control panel.

I had a look in the list and have done some research but I can't seem to get the rapid button feature?

I would like to use an existing pushbutton control panel I have. The jogging is fine. My question is in relation to integration of a rapid feed switch - i.e to get a pushbutton to act like a the "shift key" on the keyboard.
So when you push the X++ button only it moves at the slow feed. When the rapid button is held on and the X++ button is then pushed she moves at the rapid feed?

I can get a brain to map to a push button function via an input pin but I can't seem to find this rapid option on the brains list? Unless I'm missing it?

Many thanks...

No doubt I've been stupid and missed it  :(

Any luck with this?
I'm trying to do this exact same thing and I couldn't find it either.
I hava an arduino board connected with modbus to Mach3 to handle the inputs and I already have the jog keys working. Now I need the "jog override" key.
Thanks in advance
