Setting up limit/home switches for lathe
« on: February 07, 2015, 11:27:37 AM »
Hello,
Sorry if this has been covered.  Tried to search but I'm finding mostly info on mill setups and I want to make sure I understand it for my lathe.
I have image showing how I think the switches should be wired with the C10 BOB.  I also have a screen cap of the ports and pins dialog.
I'm not sure about what to put in the boxes under the columns for port# and pin#.
Can some one take a look and let me know if I am on the right track?

In addition, can I use the E-Stop on my G0602 lathe has an E-Stop for both the lathe spindle and the stepper motors by adding the wires to the C10?
Thanks,
Gerry

You would enter Port as 1, assuming of course you are not using a secondary port.

Not sure about the E-Stop, it depends how many poles it has and whether they are already used.
