mach 3 limit switch config
« on: May 22, 2014, 01:35:15 PM »
I have a mill that I just bought and need to get the limit switch config fixed. When I bought the machine they worked . Now that I got it home and had to swap out computers and install mach 3  and load old settings the limit switch config is not correct ??? I have the mill running just need the limits so I can home out the machine.
any and all help is appreciated

Either trace out the wiring so you can see which port/pin the switches come into Mach or you could use the auto input setup in Ports and Pins, Inputs .

There are not X- and X--.
You have X+ and X- limits, that's it. They're labeled X++ and X-- in Ports and Pins.
