I CAN SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!

The upgrade of "Arnold" from a 1995 MultiCam controller to the MK3/4 controller is almost complete. It has been a real learning process but rewarding to see it work.

:?: I do have a question on the setting up of the Limit Settings.
Arnold has three proximity switches. One for each axis.
I set the Limit for each of these axis. (Z+ , X+ , Y-)
Do I leave the other two directions unchecked?
I did set ALL of the Soft Limits and that is the only
protection I have to prevent X- and Y+ from crashing.
I am guessing that is how MultiCam had it setup also.
Is this correct?????

I have attached my Setup. All Limits on X & Y are checked but I think it doesn't make a difference as there are no Proximity switches on X- & Y+.

You just enable soft limits and your axes directions without the limit switches will be stopped by soft limits.
Stop checkbox at the "Limits" tab does not have any meaning in such case. Just make sure your machine workspace is defined.

Do these logs record anything other than signal strength? I think im going to have to give this a go and see what the best way to mount my gr32 is.
