Optional Stop Input

If you mean another E-stop, image below shows how it's done? Just make sure the contacts are broken when the button is pressed - this is called a normally closed switch. In fact in this way you can 'series up' as many E-stops as you wish.

Note the E-stop documentation here.

Is it possible to make OPTIONAL STOP "ON" a default upon power up?

I use it in my probing cycles and a few times I forgot to turn it on and drove my probe into my WC set up plate.

@greg making optional stop ON by default on power-up will be the best way and we will release it as part of our next week's software update release.

Simon,

I thought the documentation was self explanatory.
N10 G00 X0 Y0

N20 G00 X10

N30 M01

N40 G00 Y10

Line N30 will stop the machine if optional stop is active, otherwise it will continue with the next movement.

There are many uses for the optional stop.
  • Testing new program
  • Check sizing
  • Move/install clamp after partial machining of job.
  • Display message, get operator to do something.
  • etc

Regards,

Arie.
