Hello Mike,

sorry, but I don’t have any limit switches connected…

I’m using the grounds on the limit switches connectors to connect the Kress shaft.

Many years ago I did developments in industrial environment and can remember, that it isn’t a good solution to wire TTL lines through a machine environment. PLC’s always have some special input circuits, which are mostly optocuppled and uses 24V or, 12V inputs, which needed a few mA to stimulate. We also had some software de-bouncing for the inputs.

I’ll search for a schematic of a PLC input circuit and then I’ll wire the tool length sensor plate to this input and put the Kress shaft to +12V supply…

Christian, is there any de-bouncing programed in the AVR firmware?

Cheers,
Juergen
