Your URLs doesn't work. I looked at this: http://www.soc-machines.com/pdfs/MK4...e%20Manual.pdf
If this is it then yes there are pin connectors to the left of the parallel connector.
Hi, I'm new to cnc, I'm about half way into my cnc build. I bought a 4 axis soc robotics MK4
and 3 MM160 http://soc-robotics.com/pdfs/MM160%2...al%20Brief.pdf
I see that I can set up limit switches, but can I set up home switches on this driver board? Any input would be welcome.

I fixed the links now, thank you.
@jschmitt yes that is the board.
sorry I am very new to cnc, are you talking about the white header next to the parallel port and how would I wire it? If it is the white header then I can still use the limit switch header for the limit switches.
there are 5 set of 2 pin connectors on the RIGHT side of the parallel port connector that are for limits and estops.
the white header is for reprogramming the cpld chips.
Use one of your limits as a home. If you don't want to home on the edge of your travel you can set emc or mach to make a soft limit so you can travel to your limit and the machine will stop automatically, when it reaches the limit.
Thank you, I'll have to play with that.
