Auxiliary Button Macros

Post by IronForestKnives » Fri Feb 09, 2018 11:37 am

Hello all! I just recently got my acorn, really happy with it so far. I've got everything but my enclosure lights working, which I have wired to output 2.

I'm trying to connect output 2 activation to AUX 8 VCP button but can't seem to get it to work.

Here's what I've done so far. I labeled output 2 as worklight in the wizard. I searched the forum, read TB300 and a good deal of the V3.16 operators manual. I have changed the parameters to look for a MFunc75.mac file. I'm trying to find what to put in the macro file, I think it should be M94/2 and M95/2 to turn the relay on and off. Does there need to be a latching component of some kind?

Am I on the right track or am I making this too complicated? Thanks!

Read a few macros down the list, some of them are output on/off examples. You will have to set the "mfunc" number and set your button parameter to reflect that number
