    Yes, But what is not seen on photo as i recently adjusted switches was, that it extends and envelopes the switch so only led is visible.

    Tape is very easy to use. And fast.

    OK - so extending the shielding over the plastic components that are otherwise not protected. I can see your point now!

    Cheers

    Banana plugs - I kind of passed on these as they are un-latched and thus vibration sensitive, but hadn't thought of detaching from the plate end rather than the control box end. Mmmm, more thoughts to go into the melting pot.....

    My touchplate plugs into a small plastic box bolted to the frame in an easy-to-reach but out of harm's way position. That's wired back to the control box where it connects with a GX16 captive connector. The box has a 3.5mm jack socket where the touchplate wire plugs in (with matching 3.5mm plug, obviously). Quick and easy to connect, reasonably vibration-proof. Wouldn't use jack plug for, say, limit switches but for something regularly connected/disconnected, seems ok. Very easy to check connection just by touching plate to anything earthed and watching Mach3 screen "led".

    Ugly maybe, but once you do it, its impossible to unpack it, you have to cut the tape.Coolant is no problem.
