MACH 4 C10BOB Pin Mapping
« on: September 29, 2017, 10:59:49 AM »
Hey little help here please

I have a licensed version of Mach4 Hobby and I am connecting to a C10 BOB via PMDX-411 Smart Bob.

When trying to map the X++ the only pin options are 1, and 14-17 but pins 2 through 9 are supposed to be the output pins yes?

Very new to this so any help would be much appreciated

Pins 2 through 9 are output only pins dedicated to providing step and direction signals.

Pins 1, 14, 16, and 17 are output pins for general purpose usage.

Pins 10, 11, 12, 13, and 15 are general purpose inputs. Typically PMDX users will
assign pin 10 as the Emergency Stop input, but this is not mandatory.

You can assign multiple functions to a single input pin provided your machine
is configured accordingly. For example you could have three normally closed
switches wired in series and arranged to trip when X, Y, and Z exceed the
positive travel limits. To configure Mach4 to work with this you would fill in
the same signal assignments on the row in the Input Signals chart for
Motor 0 ++, Motor 1 ++, and Motor 2 ++.
