Adding A Tool Length Sensor
« on: March 22, 2016, 04:55:41 AM »
Hi everyone,

What configuration do I need to get this tool length sensor to work correctly in Mach3?
http://cnc-step.de/en/products/accessories/1156-zero-point-switches-tool-length

I have already entered the pin information under the Ports and Pins page and Mach3 sucessfully detected the sensor.

Does the sensor require a script to run?
If yes, do I need to enter the dimension of the sensor in the script? The touch plate on the sensor in is attached to a spring that will depress when the tool touches it. Do I need to find out the travel depth when the plate is depressed and enter that value into the script?

Thank you?
