Auto back off home switch - how to change
« on: March 10, 2015, 06:03:50 PM »
I am using Mach4 2259 and ESS.

I am dual purposing my limit and home switches meaning 2 limit switches on each axis (3 axis total) and each pair is wired in series so tripping -X limit is the same as tripping +X limit.

1. The homing procedure seems to work well for the X and Z axis, but after it trips the home switch, I would like it to move off the switch slightly more than it currently is. Sometimes it doesn't move off enough and bumping the table or moving another axis causes enough vibration to retrip a limit switch. How do I configure this to move off the home switch more after home is set?

2. The second question is my Y-axis is not homing at all. When it goes to home the Y-axis, the Y-axis does not move. The homing procedure won't continue and complete unless I manually trip the Y-axis. If I set the Y-axis to home in place, then it homes it and moves on without issue. Is this a bug in the version I am using or a configuration issue?

Greg is working on the plugin to add the move off distance. For now it may help if you come off of the switches at a higher velocity. Not sure what you have going on with the Y axis. May want to check with Warp9 to see if you have the latest plugin.
