if you are talking about Mach3, there is only one probe Input.
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

I am aware of that   my question is about where on the controller the actual physical connections are to be made to attach the probe
If anyone has pictures of the inside of the controller box shown and can point out to which pins/connectors the actual connections are to be made it will be highly appreciated
Thanks

Without the "box" you assign an input pin in Mach for the probe. When the probe makes contact with a metal circuit it act's as a switch and the circuit is completed.

I just don't  bother with the Chinese stuff at all so can't help relative to the 6040.
You will need to read the manual if a probe connection is available.
