Re: SPIN BRAKE to vacuum ON/OFF

Sorry Gary I meant that the names are NOT OUTPUT5 & OUTPUT6. Are the outputs configured to "OUTPUT5" and "OUTPUT6" or something other than that? My code works for an output configured as the generic "number", Marty's works for one configured as an internal function

Re: SPIN BRAKE to vacuum ON/OFF
