homing 2 motors one axis
« on: June 24, 2020, 07:34:34 AM »
Hello,
I am using a pokeyes57cnc with mach 4
I have a homing switch for each axis (shared with limit -). It works great for the X and Z-axis.
For the Y-axis though it will only use one motor to get to the switch, aka the motor that is programmed as slave does not move. This forces me to push the emergency stop every time. Does anybody know how to solve this issue?

Motors 0 and 1 outputs are used for the Y-axis and the Limit - 1 is used as the homing (and - limit) switch input
Motor 2 output is used for the X-axis and the Limit -3 is used as the homing switch input
Motor 3 output is used for the Y axis and the Limit - 4 is used as the homing switch input

Thanks a lot,
