Manual limit override
« on: February 05, 2008, 05:16:42 PM »
I am having problems with my limits not working as I have said in a previous post. I just noticed that in the settings screen the manual limit override light is flashing. I 'm wondering if this is related to my other problem. How do I correct this?

this happens to me when a limit is actually hit - have you checked with Diagnostics to make sure that your limit switches are set up and operating correctly?

Yes, all my limits switches are working. I have them in series.When I go to diagnostics screen, and trip one of the switches, all three lights go on as expected. I have them set up for 5 volts. Everything seems hooked up correctly, but when I run an axis to the switch, it will not stop. I get no EStop. I have tried active high, active low, to no avail. Like I said, The manual limit override is constantly flashing. Is there a way to reset or turn this off?

Manual limit override is meant so that once a limit has been tripped and the Reset is flashing, you are then able to press the Reset and you can then Jog off the limit. The Jog will be at a slower rate, this is a safety thing so that if you jog the wrong way it is not going full speed.
Can you please attach your xml file as if you are seeing the limits working in the diags screen it has to be a setting that is wrong. You will have to rename your xml to attach it or the forum will not accept it as an attachment.

I had my limit set incorrectly in the input section of setup. I just didn't scroll down far enough. Thanks for all the help.
