Question #: 12191

Question: i want to install 6 limit switchs and i want to have them on there own pin, i take it that 2 limits each axis gets its own pin and each axis is wired togeather? thanks

Current Solution

You can wire many limit switches on only one pin. You will need to use the NC (Normally Closed) configuration. By using NC, it is like wiring a single wire from the single pin back to ground and when the limit switch is engaged, it breaks the link (like cutting the wire). If you have, say 6 limit switches, then if any one of the switches is engaged, the connection is broken.
