can't see in my Magic glasball witch USB Controller you are using, but i think

Config -> Ports&Pins -> Input signals

are not set correctly (Port or Pin).
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

         the card has an eagle on it and its red the only name I could find is bitsensor.com
         The driver that I download to mach3 is RnRmotion
         I also used the 5 pin choices on one axis to try to get my limit switch to work

I think you will find that the inputs and outputs are on different port numbers. Do a search for bitsensor on the forum.

Make sure you use a genuine licence file, NOT the one that came with it.
