    There is an option to assign any input as probe. If you follow the CS Labs manual, it will show how. You can then select the correct input / pin in Mach 3's menu system under ports and pins (or pins and ports), dont remember which.

    The wiring and port / pin assignment is all in the CS Labs manual.

    Assuming you have installed the system, this should be easy to sort. If not and you are trying to add a probe with no knowledge, it might be tricky.

    I can give you a call and explain roughly how it works, let me know if this will help.

    Hi. The miso-m smoothstepper is all working on the machine. I am in Stockholm at this time. So calls would be deal. I am sure itís just a case of taking a wire from the miso-m to the probe and a wire from the probe to the metal of the spindle but thatís as far as I can get. What I need to know is what side of the miso-m to take the wire from, ie input or output side. What PIN number to use if that matters and do I need to feed a return wire back to the miso-m from the probe or spindle and if so to which pin. I am a electrical fool.
