    Default Gantry Home and Squaring Limits

    Hello...I have a controller that uses a single plug for all limit switches. Standard small headphone size plugin. I wired the 2 gantry limits in series as shown. I only have these 2 so far. I thought somehow Mach3 would be able to square the gantry. Today when it hits one switch it stops. and that is it.

    How do I get the gantry to move both sides (Y & B) independently with the Homing function button? Am I missing another Mach3 setting somewhere?

    Any thoughts appreciated...

    The master and slave switches need to be on different inputs, so they can't be wired together.
    And in Config>General Config, make sure "Home Slave with Master" is NOT checked.

    Thank you...sorry for delay in answering...forum access glitch with changing e-mail address.

    I have read different accounts as to how this works and assumed as much but also thought with my limited electrical knowledge I was just misinterpreting the options. I will work on this. Thanks again...
