Basic touch off switch function needed for PCB
« on: June 22, 2007, 02:26:22 PM »
Can’t I just hook up the NEG wire of the ESTOP to the tool head and hold the POS lead to the surface of the COPPER PCB material and move the tool down slow until it triggers an estop then just Backoff 0.0001 or so and zero the machine.

I know there are more elagent ways to do this but I’m having problems with the screen
Interface and I don’t have time to mess with it now! I just need a solution.

Is this not the same thing as a regular touch off switch (using estop insted of prob) ? I can't figure out how to use the probe input like this ?

So what difference does it make anyway ? I dont have time to learn a new programming method.

Thanks

Well, for such a simple question, I'm amazed that no one has responded.

That does not give me much confidence, that I will be able to be succussfull with the software.

I think the reason no one has jumped on this yet is beacuse of all of the other questions that will have to be answered.

I have sent you a personal message.
