Re: auto homing for acorn

The homing file is cncm.hom (or cnct.hom for lathe). M92(move positive to home switch) and M91(move negative to home switch) are used in the home file if you used the Wizard to configure your control for home to switch. If you used the wizard to create your home file and specified home to switch, th...

Re: 325 Limit Error?

Without a report, I can't tell if your plc inputs are still be assigned as limits.

Though they can often be assigned to the same switch/plc input. A LIMIT and a HOME or 2 entirely different things.

Re: 325 Limit Error?

Not sure it is related, but most of the time when I power up the system (both Acorn and CNCPC get power at same time), CNC12 can't find Acorn although Acorn has heartbeat.
