    I'd be a tiny bit worried about a "high" spike enabling a cycle start without warning. I'd rather have the control look at some other input location and proceed accordingly.

    I do somewhat like...

    Ah, I see that I was thinking of the MFIN signal. My bad. Likely an IF THEN statement monitoring an input would be the way to go, but at that point, why not just interface the outputs directly from...

    A few dozen moons ago, I made a simple tool probe to test the skip signal on a VF3. I used G31 to feed into a micro switch and store the Z value. As I recall, but don't quote me, a stand alone G31...

    The controller has upward of 12 channels of I/O, so it could be used to monitor any device, then one of the dedicated relays could close the skip signal circuit. I'd think it would be superior to...

    Exactly. Machines that don't have extra relays controlled by M Codes would use this controller for things like adding air blast or a buzzer, whatever device you wish. I ran a Haas VF3 that had 2 or...

  7. FANUC CNC retrofit controller. Control relays, pumps, lights, valves. Interested?

    I've developed a controller that "spies" on the RS232 port of a CNC machine and reacts to specific data to manipulate a few 10 amp relays. As long as your machine can DPRNT from within the Gcode...
