Trying to get my Farmbot Express to home itself
Seeing as the express version doesn’t have any encoders and the stall detection is not functioning yet so I have decided to add some limit switches to the limits of the machine. Similar to how 3D printers work and most CNC machines.
Just a question, when wiring up the limit switch I want to make sure I have the wiring right. Have done a quick sketch of it. Could someone please confirm it’s correct. Thanks
If you’re running FBOS 12.0.1 ( may need to flash a new SDHC ) then you can try it out ( beta ); see
Thanks for the response. Yes, i am running the latest FBOS, and I have tried every setting to change any response in the system and nothing seems to make a difference. I’m wondering if there is an issue with the hardware. I’m spending hours trying different things but it all makes zero difference to the result.
Any idea about the limit switches?
I see that the pins on the board deviate from standard when it comes to the inputs and outputs of limit switches. I can’t find anywhere in the docs where it says which one is the signal pin. I can only assume but I don’t want magic smoke.
