I have Pokeys57e and CNC4PC C62 board working very nicely to control a single stepper motor. The limit switches work well but the homing routine will not work.  The motor turns and when the table hits the limit it just stops and limit is lit in Diagnostics.  I have tried all the tricks described in the documentation but nothing makes a difference.  I have the newest version of the plugin which is supposed to have a more sophisticated set of options for homing.  I have run the Pokeys software outside of Mach and from inside Mach with the same results.

Thanks for any ideas!

did you open support ticket at http://support.polabs.com/ with that question?

Are you using Mach3 or Mach4? Check the settings in the 'Pulse engine' dialog of the PoKeys plugin. There must be a switch configured as Home input for the homing to operate.
