Touch Probe Issue
« on: November 02, 2019, 01:57:47 AM »
Got the simple touch plate and hooked it up per my stb5100 (usb) Controller manufacturer's instructions.
I have setup the input signal as probe with port/pin combination same as z-axes.. Probe has "enabled" checkmark and "Active Low" has checkmark.
When I short the circuit and touch the plate with the alligator clamp, on the diagnostics screen my INDEX light comes on instead of DIGITIZE?!
When I press Autotool Zero the Z axes movement does not stop to touch. If switch "Active Low" to disabled, Digitize light comes solid on regardless of circuit shorted or not. Index light still comes on to touch.

Wondering if anybody ran into this?

What happened is I had the pin incorrectly set. Pin=11, seems to be the correct value for probe.
Also cannot find what INDEX lite is for, but I have disabled it as it also was referencing pin 11.
I can now get digitize to light up when probe shorts.
