Hi,
you say that you don't have an Estop? That's pretty bold, its about the ONLY input that has to be there.

Have you assigned a pin for an Estop? If you have then may I suggest terminating it with  a low value resistor,
say 400 ohms, to either earth or logic high so that the Estop is not active. My thinking goes that if a pin is unconnected
noise impulses may cause the signal to go active.

Hi,
depends on whether you've set Estop as Active High or Active Low. 400 Ohm to earth will be fine for Active High.

I can't help but think you should hook up an Estop switch, so if your machine goes crazy or your Gcode is faulty you can switch it off real quick. In most
countries an Estop is a legal safety requirement. You may have seen the switches, big red button in a yellow surround and the button latches down, hit it
and the machine stops.

but sorry for my missunderstand
if i have no e-stop switch it is the same as when the switch is open
my problem is thaht pokeys meas i press the estop and that is not

┬┤must the estop switch close the connection between pin 4-6 and when i press it it cut the connection or the other way

Hi,
I'm guessing that because you have no switch that noise is getting onto the pin and telling Mach to Estop. I suggest loading the pin so that it is less susceptible
to noise.

Hi,
you can't jog while a Gcode program is running.
