Hood  the turret reverses to lock.You can hear the turret going past the locking pointand then it must reverse. The OEM triggers is working I tested it in a brisn brogram.

Hood the previous reply should have been brain.I tested it with a brain program and with that it is working (the OEM TRIg).

Ok if it reverses I dont see that in the macro, will look again though.
What kind of motor is on the turret? What does OutPut4 actually switch on and off?

Hood output4 drives a relay to turn the turret.When this relay falls away another relay comes in at a lower voltage and reverses the turret. This is hard wired.

I have disconnected the revers relay just to see if the relay was the problem.

OK that explains why its not in the macro, so I am presuming there must be some sort of stop pin or ratchet that is also released when output 4 is active and dropped when its not?

It is a ratched type turret.When it reverses it locks the turret.

OK, thats good, I have an understanding of how it works now.
I am trying out a few things in the macro, will post back if I find anything, wish Graham would jump in with the answer ;)

You would have to set the macro to look for the Inputs rather than OEM Triggers if you are going to do that.
 I am going to try something else but just cant get why its not working, I can get the output operating but the triggers are not stopping it, wish I was more knowledgeable in VB :(
