This is the schematic for the probe/touchoff cable I use. I leave the TT1-B connected all the time.

Confidence is the feeling you have before you fully understand the situation.
I have CDO. It's like OCD, but the letters are where they should be.

Again, thank you gents! I’m slowly starting absorb all this info.

Swissi, I’d sure love to make both my NC TP and TT work. I clearly need to do some more educational on my end. I have a feeling I’ll be able to work towards a solution and then ask for more help here. I’ve been slammed with crap so I have yet to reach out. I will over the weekend.

Marty. I’m running Mitsubishi MR-JE servos. They are mounted to the machine. Their online info and support is for crap and I’m sure I’ll need more help diagnosing the wiring. I’ve got 4 flying leads and 4 Mitsubishi breakout board so I won’t have to do any soldering. Now I just need to figure out the best approach to wiring them up. ie more questions to come. Ha I picked up a used driver and servo I can use for testing with the hopes of diagnostics pre hook up to the actual machine.

Tom, thanks for the wiring diagram. I think I’ll go that route! Super frickin helpful.

As stated previously. This forum is one of the main reasons I went with Centroid. Pure awesome! I hope one day to be knowledgeable enough to share information with the group vs. asking a million questions.

Thanks to all!!!!!! :)

Jason,
More background on the project please. Sounds like you are worrying about probing before the machine is converted. Please follow and answer this post:

You’re correct Marty! I’m still in “pre-build/research” mode. If there anything I’ve learned from the forum and online videos, it’s to go slow, follow the directions and be patient. My questions thus far are intended to be broad and hopeful apply to others down the road in my situation. ie, a very curious and slow moving human. I like thinking through a project from start to finish before I begin the project. Asking about probing this early is simply an attempt to build knowledge, even if it’s premature to this project. OR... it’s my ADHD. Who knows. Ha ha.

I certainly don’t mean to waste the valuable time of you and the other badass contributors.

I think it’s about time to start a new build thread, and list all the info about my specific build. I’ve been waiting to do that til I was ready. I think that time has come. Thanks for the gentle push Marty. 😊
