The wiring schematic for the clear path motor shows the "drive OK " going to IN5 on the h1 block. If I have 3 limit switches plus a tool setter hooked up to the H4 block I will run out of input space to have three "separate inputs for drive OK". 1)Is it advisable to gang all thre...

With a clean sheet I fired it up and now can I not get the board to respond to an Estop What I know: 1) the only connection to this board at present is the Estop.
